Malwarebytes blocking malicious IPs from svchost.exe


Recommended Posts

Hello!
I need some help with this issue I'm having recently...
I've noticed that everyday I'll get one or two notifications from MB saying that it has blocked a malicious IP from svchost.exe.
I have no idea what may be causing this and I've ran multiple scans that didn't find anything.

I'd like to know if this means my machine is infected and what can be done about it.

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick response,Mr Charlie...

 

I did all you asked but I've just realized that part of the logs are in portuguese (my main language). I think you can still understand it though.

I don't see much in the logs.

You're using an illegal/cracked version of Microsoft Office:
 

Task: {583CE985-8466-431D-8B04-AA09E4714757} - System32\Tasks\AutoKMS => C:\Windows\AutoKMS\AutoKMS.exe [2014-04-05] ()

 


Can I see a protection log showing the ip block and what browser is open when this happens.
