Inbound Malicious Website

Recommended Posts

Starting this morning i keep getting Inbound Malicious Website Blocked Popup for IP Address 89,248,171.137 (Poland). The blocking occurs every five seconds or so. What should I do ?


It occured when I was in my Windows XP partition, so I rebooted into XP Pro, but the same thing occured for the same IP.

IP blocks can indicate a number of things:

  • They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.
  • In some cases the blocks are a false positive.
  • However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and they occur when no browsers are open.
--> There is more information about the IP blocking module in the in the Help Desk topics HERE and HERE and HERE, and in the FAQ - Section G.

They also contain instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections.

You may also research the IP in question at www.ip-lookup.net or a similar site.

On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this pinned topic before starting a new topic in the Website False Positives sub-forum.

Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following for the available options to have a malware expert assist you with the cleaning process Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

So, I turned off my Modem, waited about 15 minutes before turning it on again , and the intrusions stopped I guess the
