Anti-Malware blocked access to malicious IP

4 posts in this topic

I'm using Windows XP, Firefox 3.5.3, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.4.1 db 2811.

Every few seconds I get a message from my system tray that says, "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware blocked access to malicious IP: 88.214.203.109." But I am not trying to access that IP.

This only happens when using Firefox. It does not happen when using Internet Explorer 7 or Google Chrome.

I've scanned my computer with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and McAfee and found nothing.

Is there malware on my computer trying to access that IP, or is this a new Malwarebytes feature gone haywire?

My MBAM and HijackThis logs are pasted below.

Thank you!

Hi,

There's nothing strange here. I wouldnt worry though... see here for more explanation:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.p...20772&st=20

Mieke,

Thank you for your reply, but I don't understand.

Every few seconds I get the notification from my system tray that says, "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware blocked access to malicious IP: 88.214.203.109 (also 195.24.76.228)." The point that I'm trying to make (and the point that the Malwarebytes staff doesn't seem to understand in the forum post you directed me to) is that I AM NOT ACCESSING THOSE IPs.

If I am not accessing those IPs, then there must be something malicious on my computer that IS trying to access them. If there is something malicious on my computer trying to access those IPs, then why can't Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and McAfee and you reviewing my logs find anything wrong.

Or, if there is nothing malicious on my computer trying to access those IPs, then why does Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware keep saying it is?

Thank you.

I know you're not accessing those IPs, but some Firefox plugins do...

I have the same here though (with another IP)
