MBAM 1.40 IP Protection


Recommended Posts

Hello all, first of all, I've read a couple topics regarding this. I was getting pop ups from the IP Protection and then I found I was banned from a forum because I was "posting malicious files"...well I wasn't physically posting them and I thought maybe I had a trojan...so I reformat and reinstalled windows and did a full scan of my external (with MBAM, eset, and windows defender) and nothing turned up...since the reinstall of windows I've been getting the pop ups still and I haven't even installed any P2P programs. The only thing I've installed is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and was playing online. Could this be causing all the pop ups?

Welcome to the forums.

Sorry you went thru what you went thru. Had you come into the forums first, you'd have been able to see the sticky thread we have for this new feature and avoided all that work:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.p...t=0#entry107310

There is no actual 'infection'. We're working on changing the message in the next version to avoid confusion.

If you got banned anywhere it had nothing to do with this alert.

But you don't need to actually be doing anything to trigger the alert. Any application which has access to the Net, like CoD, could in theory trigger an alert. The most popular culprits for these 'at rest' alerts are P2P software and IM clients. But I'm sure games may also trigger alerts.

Because this is a new technology and feature, we're currently experiencing some false\positive alerts which we're working to correct and include in the new version. In this case tho, we have some sites which are engaged in malicious activity:

Hope that's been helpful

Thank you very much for the quick reply! Just an FYI I was banned from a forum for posting malicious files (like I said) but I wasn't posting them...a virus or trojan of some sort was doing it...either automatically or someone was able to get my information and do it manually...so once I saw that I knew I had some sort of infection and when all three scans turned up nothing but I kept seeing the IP message I had to assume the worst and took action.

I will keep what you said in mind in the future and I hope to see the bugs fixed...wonderful piece of software...just a little shameless plug for you, anyone who asks me what anti-virus/malware/adware software they should use I instantly refer them to MBAM!

Thanks again!
