MBAM Premium 3.3.1 Blocking 255.255.255.255

Recommended Posts

Is it safe for us to exclude 255.255.255.255 ?  Will that resolve the pop-ups issue until Malwarebytes is able to fix?

Obviously, don't want to exclude that IP if some malware is sneakily using svchost or Dropbox as a means of transmission in some way

Also happening to me for SVCHost and CNMFSUT6 (Canon printer utility).

Just started happening to me too. I've had to add IP address 255.255.255.255 to exclusions to stop it.

This could be a virus that has just been activated? Maybe all our computers are trying to join up with a bot net? idk

In Malwarebytes settings, I have turned off "Show Malwarebytes notifications in the Windows System Tray" to stop the constant pop-ups.

So, MB is still blocking svchost and Dropbox (and I presume they will address this problem soon), but for now, it's not hitting me with notifications at least

Mine was port 17500 and the file was dropbox.exe in the  users\...\Roaming folder.  Excluding that program has ceased the popups.

Yup, me, too. No reference to drop box, just svchost. Port 68. For the past 45 minutes.

I also got this a half an hour ago. I thought my computer was infected because I also can't delete some PUPs with Malwarebytes Premium, they always come back. Good thing I Googled it and found this thread. Now I know those issues aren't intertwined. Talking about the SCVHOST 255.255.255.255 warning.
