Malwarebytes blocking something related to Steam?

Recommended Posts

Hello I have been using steam for many years, but within the last few days I'm starting to think something may be wrong. On Saturday Night my machine failed to launch a game Paladins. The Paladins support site suggested many causes one of which was a possible virus was detected by the anti-cheat software. I immediate ran a malwarebytes full system scan, but the scan reported no concerns. I rebooted my computer and then Paladins worked fine. 


Today I was attempting to update another game and received a popup stating that malwarebytes had blocked outgoing traffic. I am running another scan right now, but here is the message I recieved by the alert:

Can anyone advise on what I should do. The issue appears to be related to steam, but I don't know where. Thanks!
