Hello Sajuuk and :welcome:

From your description, the system in question is not receiving spam from Malwarebytes Corporation.  However, it appears as if the Website Protection Module, within Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) Trial/Premium, is protecting the system from and reported URLs or IP addresses known for malicious content and/or activities.


Malicious Website Blocked Pop-ups



Reference: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Users Guide - Malicious Web Site Blocked

Malicious Website Blocked pop-ups are caused by:

  1. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) Home (Trial/Premium) doing its job where the Malicious Web Site Module is blocking content to/from potentially disreputable Internet sources.
  2. Skype, BitTorrents and some P2P programs. Please read Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block Skype? and Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block BitTorrent or other Peer-to-Peer Programs?.
  3. In some instances the blocks are a False Positive (FP). See below.
  4. However, these blocks can also indicate system malware infection, particularly if the blocks are outbound and/or they occur while no browsers are open.

More information about MBAM Home (Trial/Premium) Malicious Web Site Module is in the Help Desk topic What does it mean when I get an alert that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has blocked a malicious site?, and in the FAQ - Section G - Malicious Website Blocking.

The above also contains instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections. A URL/IP in question may be researched at IP Address Lookup (IPv4 & IPv6) or similar.

If it is believed the URL/IP blocks are false positives, then please read Important: Please Read Before Reporting A False Positive before starting a new topic in the False Positives - Website Blocking sub-forum.

Or if it is suspected that the system in question might be infected, based on the URL/IP blocks and/or other suspicious system behaviors, then please read the following for the available options to request a malware removal expert assist with the cleaning process Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

Thank you.
