ip blocking of svchost?

Recommended Posts

hey, antimalwarebytes blocks this ip from both svchost and utorrent. i only started noticing it today but with the reputation of utorrent and that a file like svchost has been affected i'm concerned. is this ip harmless/false positive? what should i do?

sorry if this is in the wrong forum

That means that utorrent is trying to connect to this IP (which is flagged as malicious in nature). The only way to stop that from happening is to stop using utorrent or any other bittorrent application. Of course that's your choice. If you want to continue to use utorrent, and want to disable the notifications of the blocks you can do so in the Malwarebytes program.

To disable the notifications do this:

  • Open Malwarebytes
    Click on the Protection tab
    Un-Check Show tooltip balloon when malicious website is blocked
