Malwarebytes sends me a warning a few times daily, which is entered in the log as

Detection, 04/04/2016 06:17, SYSTEM, JOHN-PC, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, IP, 121.123.135.93, 62974, Outbound, C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe,

Is this significant please and should I take any action?

Hello JohnnyCyprus,

Skype is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) application. This means that it connects to a wide variety of IP addresses in order to function. Because of this, Skype may sometimes connect to IP addresses that are also known for hosting malicious content.

For this reason, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware may block such connections, though this should not affect your usage of Skype or the quality of communication through Skype itself.

If the notifications are too frequent, and you wish to disable them while still allowing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to continue protecting your PC by blocking the malicious websites, please follow the steps on this article: How do I disable notifications when Malwarebytes Anti-Malware blocks a file or website?

Alternatively, if you would like to stop Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from blocking Skype entirely, you may follow the steps on this article: How do I stop Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from blocking a website or network program that I trust?
