Suggested feature for IP protection


Recommended Posts

Hi,

The new IP protection feature added in 1.40 is great! I know you're working on adding more options to it, so I thought I'd make a suggestion. I purchased MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and have it installed an working on a machine I use as a server for SMTP, HTTP, FTP, etc. I'm occassionally getting IP protection alerts, but a full scan of the system doesn't uncover any infections. When I do a reverse DNS lookup on the IP addresses that pop up, they're almost always in China (surprise!). To try and narrow down what's causing the alerts, it would be really helpful if the IP protection log indicated which Windows program or service attempted to access the IP address.

Thanks!

Dan

Hi Dan,

Thank you for your suggestion however I don't think that is something we'll be doing at least right away. Actively monitoring applications is a bit more complex and starts to delve into the realm of a Firewall application. It also takes more resources from the system to do such monitoring. I'm not saying that we won't be doing it, but that if we do it will be much further down the road.

Hi Ron,

'Certainly understandable. I believe the Windows netstat program can give me that information anyway by using the -b -n command line options, but if MalwareBytes blocks the access, do you think netstat will ever see it?

BTW, we have the same last name!
