Getting 2 pop-up messages for alert issue

Hi:

It sounds as if MBAM is doing its job of blocking potentially malicious content (malvertising, etc.) on some of these sites.

 

More

This is all due to mal-vertising. A lot of websites use ad networks to place online advetising. You just happened to land on some websites that use networks who also happen to have malvertising.

Here are my suggestions:
To make sure that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has all the latest definitions, look for the blue-icon for MBAM on the Taskbar, right-click on it and select Check for Updates.

Go into the Options ( settings) of Internet Explorer ( and any other web browser you have).
Make sure that the POPUP blocker is ON.
Set the option on for rejecting (decline) 3rd-party cookies.

And in addition to all that:
Use a good browser extension ( add on) ad blocker. If your pc has no ad blocker add-on for your browser(s), I would suggest uBlock Origin.
For Mozilla Firefox, use the Mozilla page at this link
https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/ublock-origin/

For Google Chrome, see
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm

For Internet Explorer browser:
https://adblockplus.org/en/internet-explorer

For Opera browser, see
https://addons.opera.com/en-gb/extensions/details/ublock/

ALSO this too
To help totally block these types of “popups” I would recommend to only use Firefox browser that also has the addon for
NoScript Suite Lite.
and just only use that when surfing the web.

We have a free version Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE) that protects against exploit attacks in your browsers and Java, and a paid version that also protects additional applications such as MS Office.
https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbae_current/

I would recommend you install the Anti-Exploit in free use mode.

Thanks.

For Your Information:
The IP Block message indicates that a potential risk was blocked by the malicious website protection.
It by default will always show each IP block occurrence.
The Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Website Blocking feature will advise customers when a known or suspected malicious IP is attempted to be reached (outgoing) or is trying access your PC.

Incoming threats can be ignored, our software is blocking the attack and there is nothing more that can be done.

No action is required unless you’re also experiencing malware symptoms or there are multiple IPs (ex;123.23.34 and 4.44.56).
A browser is not required to be running, just an active Internet connection with processes running,
such as Instant messenger clients, SKYPE or P2P software to trigger these alerts.

These are also triggered by banner ads running on websites which is the most common form of alert

Windows Vista and Windows 7 & 8 will show the process, but Windows XP does not have the structure in place for this to be displayed by our software

Please see/review this reference on MBAM’s IP blocks

For reference, these blocks were reported yesterday in the thread below.

Someone from the Web Team will be able to give us more information when they look into it. For now, like Porthos said, these addresses are used by adware/ad networks, so using an Adblocker or content blocker should block them.

I apologize for responding with a question, but this may fall under the same topic.  I keep getting Malware popups but it doesn't give me the option to allow or quarantine.  It just offers "exclusions" or "edit exclusions".  when I select edit many times I do not see the website, program or IP address listed to allow or to exclude.  Has something changed in the newest version of Malwarebytes?

After you encounter a block you want to exclude, you can right click on the MB Tray Icon and you will be given the option to Add Web Exclusion for XXXXXXXX (where X is the site that was blocked). Only add sites that you know are safe though.

This screenshot below is only for illustration purposes (do not add iptest.malwarebytes.org as an exclusion, this is a test site)
