Not sure if I'm posting this in the right forum but I have a quick question.

I keep getting this warning, sometimes almost every minute that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware "has successfully blocked access to malicious IP: 67.215.242.138 or 67.215.242.139.

I noticed I had this issue on a laptop that had recently been infected but my desktop system, in which I am experiencing this, shows no symptoms of infection, or so I can tell anyway. A WHOIS lookup claims the IP is from the US, and that the host of the ip is DHT01.UTORRENT.COM.

Again, sorry if this is in the wrong section but I'm a bit concerned. At least MBAM seems to be doing it's job, but I want this "attempt" to stop all together.

I only know of torrents, I do not use them, but if you are using a torrent application you must have it set up as a seeder
I'm sure others will be along to give you a more detailed explanation

Yeah... non of my torrent apps are running. I did notice after the post though some thing in MBAM quarantine that I somehow missed before, cleaned that out and restarted and so far that malicious IP thing seem to have gone away.
