See here: What does it mean when I get an alert that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has blocked a malicious site?

and here: Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block Skype?


Short version: the IP blocks mean MBAM is doing its job. :)

They are nothing to worry about.

(And, if they are inbound, you can configure your firewall to block them, too.)




P.S. (You have a few other forum topics for this issue, here and here, as well. There's no need to create a new forum topic every time you see a Skype IP block. ;) )

Once you switch to the Free version you loose the live active protection and web blocker features, as well as automatic updates and scans. So yes, you will be more vulnerable to infections...

To make it simple, if you have a locker and you no longer put a lock on it, you become more vulnerable to someone taking your stuff.

Same concept, if you no longer have live protection from your antivirus and antimalware you are more vulnerable to getting infected.

No problem.

Sorry about posting another one, i just started using the forums yesterday.

Please take a moment to read the links to the articles we have provided in your many topics.
They explain what you are seeing and how to manage it.


Btw should I be worried about these inbounds and out bounds if i dont have mbam pro anymore? Thanks for ur help

As @Firefox explained in your previous thread >>here<<, when your Trial ends, MBAM will revert to the Free version. ;)

The Free version does NOT provide real-time protection. It is a manual, on-demand scanner.

No real-time malware or IP protection.

You will have to rely on your antivirus and firewall for protection.


So, it's up to you.

But if you want continued real-time protection when the Trial ends, you will need to purchase a license.

You will not need to reinstall the program -- you will just need to "Activate" with the Premium license ID and key.

A new, 3-PC consumer license can be activated on up to 3 computers in the same household at one time.
You purchase the license.
The e-commerce partner sends you an email with a license ID and key.

(Or you purchase the software on a boxed CD.)
You install MBAM on the (up to) 3 computers.
You use the same license ID and key to activate to Premium (there is no "Pro" for consumers) on the computers.
You renew the license prior to expiration a year from purchase.
