IP Blocker

Recommended Posts

Hey ya'll. I have MBAM Pro and have the 1.50 Beta, but have a more general question. What does the IP blocker actually do? The way I see it, it helps protect my comp from malware every time the message pops up in the bottom right, but is this true (meaning, does it just block the IP or actually do something more the way I think it's doing)? I sound like a newb lol :D

Thanks in advance!

Greetings :D

It blocks any connections to or from your PC to or from the IP addresses in our frequently updated blocklist, thus preventing any malware that may reside on that IP from ever coming into contact with your PC as long as the protection is running. We've seen plenty of cases where it would also block actual malware, such as trojans, worms, rogues and browser hijacks/redirects being blocked from phoning home by the Website Blocking module on systems that were already infected B).
