MWB keeps telling me that it blocked a website on port 3389? but I blocked


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have MWB loaded on Windows Server 2012 R2

MWB keeps giving me the following message:

 

image.png.81e632db46342920a1b7eb4223199b56.png

 

I have already blocked all TCP and UDP traffic to RDP port 3389 from all ip but one..  

 

Can someone please tell me what to do?  is this possible a false positive or is MWB blocking it before the windows firewall is actually getting a chance to block it..

 

here is my WFW:

Lets address your initial issue first.

The attempts on various ports are tried by bots.   But they are STOPPED  by the Malwarebytes real-time web protection.

Malwarebytes is protecting your system.

See this article  https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360048565893-Receiving-message-Website-blocked-due-to-compromise

 

In most cases the attempted probes will eventually stop on their own. If it continues you can add the IP to the local firewall to prevent it from contacting the computer period.
If you wish to do so, here is one how-to guide for the Windows software firewall
https://www.interserver.net/tips/kb/add-ip-address-windows-firewall/

 

Additionally or alternatively, if this is on Windows 10 PRO  and if you do not need or use Remote Desktop,  you can turn that off.

Here is how to block a port number in Windows

How to Change the port number for RDP

Next, We need to address this as well.

I am sorry to inform you that Malwarebytes Premium (stand alone) is not supported on any server OS and is also against the EULA as well.

(b) Paid License.

If you purchased a license to the Software from Malwarebytes or from a Malwarebytes authorized reseller, then conditioned upon your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Malwarebytes grants you a non-exclusive and non-transferable license to Execute the number of copies of the Software for which you have paid solely in executable form on the corresponding number of Devices owned or used by you. Furthermore, you may not Execute the Software on any Device(s) running a server operating system unless it is a Malwarebytes server product as reflected in its official product name and official release notes. You agree that your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features (including future availability of any Software beyond the current license term or any new releases), or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Malwarebytes regarding future functionality or features.

Hello,

 

Thank you for the speedy replay,  I have a question I have blocked both TCP and UDP port 3389 access using the Server 2012 R2 windows firewall from all ips except one ip which I use.. So I'm very confused why MWB is also blocking an attempt from outside.  Is MWB intercepting the netwwork traffic before the windows firewall is seeing and stopping it?

 

thanks in advance.
