Blocked Inbound Connection to svchost.exe

Recommended Posts

Hello! :)

I'm wondering if this is something I should be scared about, because I have been freaking out over it the past day.

Port 1900 is for UPnP.

I've scanned with many different programs(MBAM, Avast!, RogueKiller, TDSSKiller, AdwCleaner, ect), but all have come back clean. Am I freaking out over nothing?

Hello and welcome back:


Generally, **inbound** blocks are to be expected, and do not necessarily mean that you are infected. They may mean that MBAM is doing its job.


However, it appears that you already have an identical topic for the same problem over in the malware removal section here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/165173-blocked-inbound-connection-svchostexe/


If you would like expert help to exclude possible malware, please be patient and wait for an expert helper to assist you in that other topic in the malware removal area.

The forum is quite busy and many of the helpers are volunteers.

Someone will assist you as soon as possible.


Thank you for your patience and understanding,


P.S. Is this the same computer as this one here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/164578-mbam-pro-blocked-svchostexe-inbound-connection/ and here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/164616-possible-infection-four-instances-of-rundll32exe-nothing-detected-by-mbam-pro/

Yes, it is the same computer. The only reason I asked here as well was if I should continue to be anxious about something that isn't worth getting nervous over. I've noticed that both have to do with UPnP, would it be better to just disable it on my computer or my router?
