Team Fortress 2, hl2.exe, IP

Recommended Posts



A few days ago I downloaded Team Fortress 2 on steam for old times sake. When I opened the server browser to see what servers where out the still, Malwarebytes blocked the outbound connection to the IP address above. I closed and uninstalled TF2 and then ran full scans of my computer but found nothing. I didn’t actually join any servers I think the ping from looking at the server browser triggered the block. I just wanted to be sure that this was either a false positive or a real website block and that my computer is safe. There are images attached of the block notification.


Thank you for your time, I really appreciate it.

Awesome, thank you very much for the response! Since it was a false positive and the scans came back clean I should be good to carry on like normal then I take it? Just want to be sure since I’m paranoid about this stuff. Thank you again!

You may encounter this again with different games and different IP's.

It must be due to some server(s) the games are trying to connect to. Many games use p2p connections to play online. As long as the games aren't at risk for connecting to malicious content (which they shouldn't be), you should be able to simply exclude the games' executables from Web Protection using the method described under the Allow an application to connect to the Internet section of this support article.
