Outgoing IP's Blocked


Recommended Posts

Hello, the best anti-virus support forum on the web! :D

I just noticed that mbam blocked a couple outgoing ip addresses. I thing I saw somewhere on here that blocked outgoing is a bad thing. Is this correct?

Here's the ip's that were blocked:

15:03:28 Harry IP-BLOCK 208.87.149.250 (Type: outgoing, Port: 64079, Process: avastsvc.exe)

15:03:28 Harry IP-BLOCK 208.87.149.250 (Type: outgoing, Port: 64062, Process: avastsvc.exe)

According to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/208.87.149.250 this ip is in

State/Region: California

City: El Segundo

Please let me know if I should b concerned.

Thanks,

These are probably the updates or something that avast has blocked or intercepted. Some virus programs intercept internet traffic.

Thanks for that, I've upgraded to MSE since that log was created. So if you don't think those blocks are from malicious sites, I'll wait and see if I get anymore.

I was concerned cause I saw someone say on here, either outgoing or incoming blocks were worst that the other. just not sure which one is.

Later,

OK let us know what happens now that you switched over to MSE (I assume you removed Avast right?).

PS: Please use the "AddReply" Add-Reply.png button instead of other ones when you start replying, it makes the forum easier to read. :)

LOL, maybe some day, I stay pretty busy with work and here on this forum, and a couple of others too... Thanks for the offer though.

Yep I uninstalled Avast with aswclear.exe in safemode. I believe all is well. :)
