I'm getting a lot of "Website blocked" on Outbound Connections

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a lot of "Website blocked" on Outbound Connections on a couple machines at my location and others do not have this behaviour. Malwarebytes 3.0 scan reports my system as clean, and it up-to-date. I have it running on several systems along with Norton Security Suite, and Norton doesn't find anything either even with a Power Eraser scan.

I have done a whois lookup on the IPs and domains (it is a mix of addresses and actual domain names), and they seem fairly random but are in various like India, Russia, China. The ports are always very high, usually 59000+ range. This has occurred even when the system is idle, and they are certainly not things I'm going to. There are also some inbound that are getting blocked too, also on high port numbers, and from sites in Russia.

I have done a net view scans to monitor connections and the applications and see lots of open ports, but now that is giving me "System error 6118 has occurred" or "System error 53 has occurred". So these are new errors so the situation is getting worse

So my questions...

What is happening?

Why doesn't Norton catch these? (or could they be something else?)

How is the scan coming back clean if this is happening? 

What can I do about it? (these are critical systems, this needs to be resolved quickly)

Hello @JNelson and :welcome:

Your description indicates the computer is probably infected and malware removal actions are not permitted in this sub-forum.

I recommend following the advice from the topic: Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and have one of the Malware Removal Experts assist you with your issue.

If, as recommended, you do open a topic in Malware Removal Help, please make reference to this thread.

If you would like to get off to a very fast start, the Malware Removal Experts would appreciate it if you would also attach (not compress/copy/paste) both the FRST.txt and the Addition.txt output diagnostic reports from only Log Set 1 into your new topic. Please do not alter any pre-configured FRST categories as the default settings are well suited for malware removal actions.

Thank you.
