I have received the following two messages today:

 

  • Malwarebytes Anti  Malware

Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website: 213.55.144.166

 

Type: Incoming

Port 20798 Process: Skype.exe

 

  • Malwarebytes Anti  Malware

Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website: 89.28.31.10

 

Type: Incoming

Port 20798 Process: Skype.exe

 

 

Can anyone tell me what these attempts could be and what the port number as well as the website numbers mean. I appreciate that the website is indicated as a "potentially malicious website" and may not indeed be malicious.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi:

 

Welcome.

This KB topic likely this explains what you're seeing & how to handle it safely: Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block Skype?

 

HTH,

Hello,

Also note:
The Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Website Blocking feature will advise users when an known malicious IP is attempted to be reached(outgoing) or is trying access your PC(incoming).

Incoming threats can be ignored, our software is blocking and there is nothing more that can be done.

No action is required unless you're also experiencing malware symptoms or there are multiple OUTGOING IPs(ex;123.23.34 and 4.44.56). A browser is not required to be running, just an active Internet connection with processes running, such as IM clients, SKYPE or P2P software to trigger these alerts. These are also triggered by banner ads running on websites which is the most common form of alert.

If you have all IM apps and all browsers closed, there ought to be no Outgoing issues.

Windows Vista and Windows 7 & 8 will show the process, but Windows XP does not have the structure in place for this to be displayed by our software

Please see/review this reference on MBAM's IP blocks
http://helpdesk.malw...malicious-site-

Please see the link below which contains our FAQ's(including reporting false\positives and adding IPs to ignore) on this feature for more information:
