It is the domain that is getting blocked as they were hosting a Trojan about 6 months ago. I've submitted the domain to our Research Team to verify if the block is still valid or not.


The logs do not show any type of infection on the computer

I'll post back once I hear back from the Team

Thanks for that. I'm also getting alerts about IP's not related to that domain. Attached the malwarebytes file.


I have a question as to what exactly is going on. So it seems to be originating from utorrent. It's open but I'm not torrenting anything. What exactly is going on? Is utorrent trying to reach those sites outbound and malwarebytes is blocking it? I'm not torrenting anything, why would utorrent be trying to reach those IP's? And what happens if I don't have malwarebytes installed and it reaches those IP's? Since I'm not downloading anything, would utorrent try to open the webpage or download something on it's own? Does that mean utorrent has malware in it?

Yes, uTorrent is reaching out to talk and Malwarebytes checks the domain and if found in the database it blocks it. Many P2P networks have bad users on them that try to inject bad data or malware and thus antivirus companies, etc block them. uTorrent via P2P simply tries to connect to another IP to locate the data if possible.


The act of torrenting itself is not illegal. However, downloading and sharing unsanctioned copyrighted material is very much illegal, and there is always a chance of getting caught by the authorities.
Torrenting non-copyrighted material is perfectly fine and is allowed. We have seen an increase in malware being bundled with software downloads over P2P.
Please keep this in mind when sharing files that you're increasing the risk that your system might get infected. Scan all files prior to running them.

Ok, it's just odd to me b/c I haven't torrented anything. All I did was install it and it looks like it's trying to connect to domains. I just wasn't sure why it was trying to connect to anything.


If I don't have utorrent open I don't get any warnings from malwarebytes.
