Recent & Consistent MBAM Alerts of Malicious Malware


Recommended Posts

Hello;

I have recently (2-3 months) been receiving constant pop up warning messages from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium that a (specific IP address) is repeatedly being (blocked). What does this mean, I assume this is better than (not blocked) and how can I determine what it is. (I have noted the IP Address for future reference if necessary)

These pop-ups were never noted prior to the 2-3 months mentioned above. Can I research the (incoming) IP Address myself, or is that not recommended. 

Just today, I was looking at my MBAM Account Page under Malware and Web Exclusions and noted the specific address was listed as an (Exclusion). I know I did not intentionally (add) that IP Address as an Excluded Preference,  I removed it immediately.

My questions are:

1) How and Why this alert from MBAM has only been present over the last 2-3 months?

2) Could I have accidently added the IP Address as an Exclusion unknowingly by a single mouse click????

I would appreciate any and all input regarding this issue, as it has me very concerned.

If you need more info, please note what you need from me, and I would be pleased to provide it.

Best Regards,

 

Casey

Next,

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way...
 
  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.(Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
  • Make sure Addition.txt is checkmarked under "Optional scans"
  • Press Scan button to run the tool....
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt) Please attach those logs to your reply.



Let me see those logs in your reply..

Thank you,

Kevin

Kevin:

I have to get back to work right now. I will send you the remaining items you have  requested later this afternoon. 

By the way the IP Address (IP, 93.174.93.94) is the one I am curious about.

Thanks very much for your time and your prompt reply on this issue.

My apologies for my lack of knowledge I have displayed. You are being a big help to me.

Get back to you soon.

Best,

 

Casey Pons.

Kevin;

Just got through downloading Farbar Scan Tool. My 2016 Premium Kaspersky Internet Security Software will not allow me to install it however.

In conjunction with Premium MBAW, I also have installed; 

1)  Super Anti Spyware Premium

I will await your response to this latest bit of advice, from me, before I proceed.

Thanks Kevin

 

Casey
