It sounds like it was most likely a connection being blocked by the Web Protection component which blocked access to a server/website known for Trojan activity.  This does not necessarily mean that you are infected, only that a website you were visiting or an application on your system tried to connect to or included content from a server which is known for malicious activity.  It could have been an ad in a webpage that was blocked, a pop-up or redirect or some other content embedded in an otherwise safe webpage.

You can verify this by opening Malwarebytes and clicking on the bell shaped icon in the upper right corner to the right of the My Account button and then clicking on the most recent entry listed at the top of the menu that shows up and it should take you to a detailed report showing what was blocked and what files/websites/processes were involved.

Once you do, you may click the Export button at the bottom left of the report and select Copy to Clipboard and then paste the contents into your next reply or export it as a text file and then attach it to your next response for analysis if you wish and we can take a look and advise you from there if it appears to be anything to be concerned about or not, however I suspect it was probably just the Web Protection component doing its job to protect your system from some malicious content on the web.

I hope this helps set your mind at ease and if there is anything else we might do to assist you please don't hesitate to ask.
