Blocked website - window-updates-services .com


Recommended Posts


Since I updated my windows 10 (this morning), Malwarebytes keeps showing a pop-up of "Website blocked due to phishing"

And this is - it.


And these are the advanced "info" -

I want to know if it is a real problem or it is not. If it's safe for me to add a web exclusion for the site or not. 

Thank you for your time.

The first thing I would recommend would be to make certain your system is not infected just to be safe.  To do so, please follow the instructions in this topic then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and a malware removal specialist will guide you in checking and cleaning your system of any threats.

My sistem is not infected. I checked everything and went thru a lot of scans and all. I have no malware in my system. It's just that malwarebytes pops up that "Website blocked due to phishing" every 1-2 minutes. This after I updated my windows 10.

Yes, but something is causing ping.exe to attempt to contact that URL, and that is not a legitimate Microsoft website.  If it is not an infection, it might be some sort of PUP and it could also simply be a recent threat that went undetected by your scans.  We help people every day here on the forums who have already exhausted extensive scans and cleaning tools only to learn that there were still threats on their systems; this is why our malware removal help area exists.

Besides that, even if it is not an infection, they will likely be able to determine why the system is attempting to connect to that site and get the issue resolved.
