Thank you for your feedback @Illu.

 

After consultation with @Maurice Naggar, I can forward this information to you:

 

The issue ( of block notices) that started out this case were due to attempted probes from the outside.

The real-time protection of Malwarebytes for Windows is keeping the pc safe.  They will continue to do so, given that you have Malwarebytes Premium.

Here are some general conclusions & some tips.

The blocks are on addresses that are attempting to do a forced  attempt to exploit remote-desktop-protocol. 

The Real Time Protection of Malwarebytes for Windows  is actively doing it's job to protect the system.

I  would recommend that if you have a internet-connection-router hardware at home,  that you look over this article
"How to Enable Your Wireless Router's Built-in Firewall"
https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-enable-your-wireless-routers-built-in-firewall-2487668

 

In most cases the attempted probes will automatically 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

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.
