IP 239.255.255.250 PopUp

Hi

Hope this is the right place to post.

I have Malwarebytes 2.2.1.1043, Premium Version (I've contacted customer support but thought I'd come to the forums too for belt-and-braces approach)....

As of today I have a Malwarebytes message popping up very frequently: Malicious website blocked, IP 239.255.255.250, port 53792, Outbound, Process : C:|ProgramFiles(x86)\Google\Chrome\Applications\Chrome.exe; A little googling tells me this is my computer requesting access to this ip address, probably because it is looking for but not finding an external device. 

How can I confirm whether this is the case?

Is it harmless?

How can I  shut down the pop up as it is very distracting?

Hope you can help!

This f/p should be fixed in the next update. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

OK, thanks  - sorry, what's an f/p?

Are you saying that this is a known issue and will be fixed? Any idea of timing of update? And any idea  of how to stop the *** thing from popping up:P

Apologies for bombardment of questions

As I posted in the other thread, There are now 2 threads.... 

this is the SSDP service broadcast IP address, and its critical for chrome to discover its chromecast among other things, AS WELL AS Windows uses it to discover printers and some other stuff. 

No its still not fixed, and who in their right mind Employed at MB would add that IP address to the blacklist? This HAS GOT to be a practical joke. 

Because its not very smart.
