Question about pop up


Recommended Posts

I have a question about MB pop ups I get frequently. A window will pop up and it will say 'Malicious website blocked' then it will say either inbound or outbound and give an ip address. I only go to safe sites. I'm not one to click on anything. Usually when I get these I'm on Yahoo or Facebook. Can someone tell me what these pop ups exactly mean? Thank you!!!!! :D

Hello and :welcome: :
This KB topic explains the significance of IP block: What does it mean when I get an alert that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has blocked a malicious site?
From what you describe, it could be that MBAM is doing its job, e.g. by blocking banner ads and other content on web sites.
If you are seeing a lot of outgoing blocks, especially when you don't have a browser open, they could be a sign of infection.

It might be a good idea to get an expert to help you check your system.

For expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the preliminary steps to expedite the process.
A malware analyst will guide you through the cleanup process.

Hello and thanks for the quick reply. It only happens when I have a browser open. I use and have used Chrome for quite some time. This just started happening about 2 weeks ago. I run MB scan on a regular basis along with my AV. I don't think I have an infection. Nothing strange has been happening other than what I explained. Thanks a lot!!!!!

Some malware requires the use of additional scanners and tools for complete detection and removal.

The complexity of finding, preventing, and cleanup from malware


Getting your system checked will only cost you a bit of your time.

But, it's certainly up to you, if you change your mind. :)
