Malwarebytes Anti-Malware "successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious Website"

Recommended Posts

I have not been able to remove a popup warning that continuously pops up intermittently every few minutes or so, and sometime more frequently, as a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware blocked access to a outgoing connection to the website < 217.23.3200 > attempt notification on the taskbar that only gives me the ability to quickly hover over view and/or close the notice which references svchost.exe as the process attempting to access an external website . . So far every blocked attempt is made via a different seemingly random outgoing port in the 50000 to 53999 range. the actual Notice text is provided here below


! Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

"Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious"
Website: 217.23.3200"


Type: Outgoing

"Port 50258 Process: svchost.exe"


I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro and MS Security Essentials installed on my Desktop computer which is running

Windows 7 Home Premium and my browser is Chrome  I saw a similar post were your support team requested the DDS and Attach text files. So they are included and attached herewith.


Your help in tackling this problem is requested and would be very much appreciated!

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.
Before we start please read and note the following:
icon_arrow.gif Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
icon_arrow.gif Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time.
icon_arrow.gif Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
icon_arrow.gif Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a Attach Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
icon_arrow.gif Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
icon_arrow.gif Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
icon_arrow.gif Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
icon_arrow.gif If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
icon_idea.gif I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
icon_idea.gif There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Thanx for the timely response. I believe I'm in compliance with the help terms you outlined, but if I am not please tell me what I need to do to fix the issue. I have teenaged grand kids who also use this computer so i don't know everything that happens on it.


I ran a whois on the "blocked" reference website < > which is identified as
he RIPE Database Query Service". I don't know anything about the service or if I have it installed on this computer. 


Per your request I download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool. I ran (FRST64) the download and the FRST and Addition text files are included and attached herewith.


Your help in tackling this problem is greatly appreciated!

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:
Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.
