I'm trying Malwarebytes for the first time. Currently on the Premium Trial.

When I launch BitCoin Core I get notified by MB that an outbound connection from bitcoin-qt.exe to port 8333 is blocked because it's classified as "Compromised":

I've googled the IP address and it seems to be associated with the domain wpcoolstuff[.]com. Looks like it's been reported as compromised.

Is my BitCoin Core infected with malware? What can I do to fix it?
