IP Block 208.73.210.29

8 posts in this topic

Several times a day this IP is blocked (208.73.210.29) when I am not using the internet. How can I discover what application on my computer is attempting to connect to this site?

The following messages are often posted to the log. Is it normal for IP Protection to stop?

07:43:57 KP IP-BLOCK 208.73.210.29

07:46:33 KP MESSAGE IP Protection stopped

07:46:33 KP MESSAGE IP Protection started successfully

Thanks

Kat

I am getting the same IP. Whats even more strange is that I had to block this at our firewall because if anyone mistypes a URL on the internet or runs a ping for something NOT part of our domain - this IP address is what comes up.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions..?

Every minute or so I am getting the "IP Block 208.73.210.29" pop up. I've run a full scan and it has not found anything. Any ideas?

I started getting the same blocked IP like every minute recently. The strange thing is that the program, which is trying to connect is either svchost.exe or the System process - I caught this using SysInternals ProcMon, image attached.

So either this IP was accessed by the system before, but Malwarebytes added it to the database recently, so it started popping up, or I got some malware on both of my computers (it started simultaneously).

Does anybody know where Malwarebytes keep the blocked IPs and how to check when this IP was added?

Any word on this? Getting this alert every other minute, and my OS has slowed down tremendously since I downloaded malwarebytes, yesterday. Kind of alarmed.

I am getting the same repeated messages from Malwarebytes also. Is there a fix for this? If there is, how do I get it?
