Hey everyone,

A few days ago I updated MBAM to the trial version and it began giving me messages such as this one.

0 9 : 3 8 : 4 4         S a m u e l     I P - B L O C K         2 0 8 . 7 3 . 2 1 0 . 2 9   ( T y p e :   o u t g o i n g ,   P o r t :   5 1 5 7 3 ,   P r o c e s s :   c o r e s e r v i c e s h e l l . e x e )


I checked the IPs and many were coming from the Netherlands, China, Russia. There was many more outgoing than incoming IPs. This also at the same time when a family member torrented/downloaded a free and open source game.I am running Windows 7 and running Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Wait, someone was torrenting? You do know that torrenting is illegal and I believe that if we find that you have torrent software on your computer we will not help you unless you remove such programs.

Have a question, or just wanna chat? Send me a message. Or add me as a friend.

Hello uberrr
Torrents are 100% legal, if they are linked to NON-Copyrighted materials.
If they are linked to copyrighted content, then using the torrent to download it IS illegal.
Torrents are a means to an end, if your end is copyrighted warez, moviez or muzic than you are breaking the law in most countries, Definantly in the U.S.

The game was free and open source... Was just checking because I thought that could have been revelant to the incoming/outbound IPs

But torrents leave you exposed to viruses and often make you open ports which can lead to security breaches.
