Wondering about IP Protection


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I have a couple of questions about MBAM's IP protection:

1.I do get a lot of incoming IP blocks,does malicious incoming IP blocking means there was an attempt to hack my PC?

2.If there was no MBAM installed does that means I would have been hacked despite my Firewall?

Thanks.

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes:

IP blocking can occur as a result of certain legitimate programs such as SKYPE. But it can also be the result of infection on your system.

Please have a look at the following posts/articles about MBAM's IP blocking:

here, here and here.

They explain how it works.

After doing so, if you think these IP blocks are false positives, then please start a new thread here.

Or, if you think your system might be infected -- based on the IP blocks or other suspicious computer behavior -- then please do the following, as we do not work on malware removal in this part of the forum.

1. First, please go to THIS PAGE, print out, read and follow as many instructions as you can, skipping any you are unable to complete.

2. Then, please describe your computer's symptoms as best you can and post the requested MBAM and DDS logs by starting a new thread at the Malware Removal-HJT forum . Please post the results of the requested scans directly into your post, using copy/paste, rather than attaching them.

One of the authorized, trained experts will then assist you as soon as possible for free, one-on-one malware detection and removal.

When you post, please be sure to select Track This Topic & choose one of the email options, so that you will be notified when someone responds.

Please be patient and allow at least 24-48 hours before bumping your thread -- otherwise it may appear to the experts that you are already being helped.

Other Support Options:

--- Alternatively, as a paying customer using MBAM PRO, you may wish instead to start a support ticket by contacting support at: support@malwarebytes.org; or

--- Premium, fee-based support options are available here.

NOTE: If you are a reseller, affiliate, technician, corporate, business, educational, government or non-profit customer then please contact corporate-support@malwarebytes.org and include full contact details along with your Reference # when you do, in order to ensure that you receive prompt assistance.

Also, please use the "Add Reply" button when replying here & at the other boards, so that it will be easier for everyone to follow the thread.

Thanks!
