Sudden incoming/outgoing attempts blocked

Recommended Posts

This morning when I started using my PC, I started seeing numerous pop-ups from Malwarebytes saying it had blocked either an incoming attack or an outgoing attempt to contact a malicious site (see link to screen captures below). I ran a full scan that came up clean. I ran a virus/spyware scan with Norton 360 that only removed some cookies. Still getting the pop-ups.

I've got a feeling I'm headed down that "I'm infected what do I do now" road, but this time I'd like to know what caused this to start. No new software installs. I don't hang around "warez" sites. Is there a way to figure out what kicked this off? A way to track those IP addresses to a common source?

For whatever reason, the attempted in/out traffic stopped after about two hours. I suppose that's good, but I still don't know what on my PC was trying to make an outside connection. I also don't know what prompted the flurry of attempts to get into my PC.

I don't know about you guys, but I don't like these kinds of mysteries.
