Regular and Constant Malicious Website Blocked Ballons


Recommended Posts

I have MBAM 2.2.1.1043

I regularly, consistently, and unceasingly get the above balloon popup.

I'm at a loss as to what could be causing it.

From what I can tell in the information, it seems to be related to Vuze which is a torrent client

I don't understand why it's notifying me of this because Vuze isn't even running and I am not downloading anything

By all accounts it is inactive.

I can attach a screenshot of said popup but being that it has my IP address and other, I assume, sensitive info I'd prefer to do so only if necessary

Any ideas on how to eliminate or drastically reduce these annoying popups would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Thanks for your reply. Yes I see it (mostly) on the web.

I also see it before I've opened up a browser

I don't see it on a particular site or page. It just pops up randomly or at anytime.

It just popped up now (twice) - as I'm on the malwarebytes forum

In short, there is no rhyme or reason to when it will appear

Yes it looks like the popup in the article with two crucial exceptions 

1. There is no domain listed

2. The process isn't an exe related to a browser. It's for my torrent client - which as I mentioned is closed and inactive

Check task manager and be sure the torrent client is not running.

Side note, using torrent clients can put your computer at high risk.
