Hello - I'm a bit of a newbie and was directed here from the general help forum. Sorry if I'm wasting peoples time but just trying to get to the bottom of this.....

 

MBAM gave a pop-up warning about outgoing traffic to the above IP and blocked it. See Protection Log below for info:

 

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
www.malwarebytes.org

(end)

 

My PC hasn't been misbehaving in any way (that I've noticed) and a full MBAM threat scan finds nothing malicious.

 

The pop ups appear just once (just after system startup) before any browser is opened - the application / source of the outgoing traffic is blank in the warning box though. I'm not using any P2P software.

 

I installed some Adobe updates yesterday and this has only been happening since then, which might be a coincidence or otherwise?!?

 

I wasn't going to post on the Malware removal forum because I'm not convinced I'm infected, but since MBAM is flagging it and others have suggested I post here (and that I may have downloaded a fake Adobe update) I hope someone can assist!

 

FRST files (x2) attached

 

Thanks again, very much appreciated
