This log been created when the McAfee is trying to update on the computer bootup. Also I have Super AntiSpyware on the computer, both of them shows no detection. But only MBAM.

Starting in version 1.40 the developers of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware introduced IP Protection:

...IP Protection provides an additional layer of security for your computer, by preventing access to known malicious IP addresses and IP ranges...

What does this notification mean?
This notification means quite simply, that an IP address has been blocked. It does NOT necessarily mean you are infected, it simply means a program on your computer (e.g. your browser, IM program, P2P program etc), tried accessing a malicious IP address...

I received a notification on a safe site, why?
How do I disable this?
I got an alert for an IP or website I think is safe, how can I report it?
Does the IP Protection replace my firewall?
Where do I find the IP Protection logs?
How can I add an IP so it won't be detected and can access a site I need to?

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware IP Protection FAQs

If you are using peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs or an IM client, be aware they can trigger alerts. Why? Because these kind of programs are a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections and remote attacks for several reasons to include pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that can lead to rogue sites where the IP address has been blocked. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. Even your Browser is susceptible to ads so just surfing the net or going to unsafe sites may trigger alerts in order to protect you. Please read How Malware Spreads - How did I get infected.
