Hi. I am running Windows XP. I had no problems until today after I disabled adblock on a website. This led me to be redirected to some security thing. I enabled Malwarebyes Anti-Malware real time protection and since then I have been having constant pop ups telling me its blocked outgoing/ingoing IPs.

Some of them are from China such as 222.186.13.71 I also received an incoming one from Doha 178.152.15.122. I'm not sure if this might be caused by my uTorrent as I always have it on and seeding. Malwarebyes Anti-Malware full scan came up with threats but those are just trainers for games installed on the computer and do not do anything. I have had those trainers installed for a while. What do I do? I have not been redirected recently only that one time.

Update: I just shut down uTorrent and so far no pop ups about blocking IPs. I'll keep uTorrent off for a while and see if any pop ups happen. I'm still a bit worried as I was redirected that one time.

Hello -

Unless your computer / programs are being redirected, or fake ads etc turn up, MBAM is working perfectly.

The Pro version is designed to block / notify you of these type of intrusions, like a Firewall would.

 

Regards -

Be aware that peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs (i.e. Limewire, eMule, Kontiki, BitTorrent, uTorrent, BitLord, BitLord, BearShare, Azureus/Vuze, etc) or an Instant messaging (IM) client, be aware they can trigger IP Protection alerts. Why? P2P programs are a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections and remote attacks. Malwarebytes IP Protection will block access to some of the peers a P2P client attempts connection to because they are classified or detected as malicious. Even the safest P2P file sharing programs that do not contain bundled spyware, still expose you to risks because of the very nature of the P2P file sharing process. By default, most P2P file sharing programs are configured to automatically launch at startup and to allow other P2P users on the same network open access to a shared directory on your computer.

More information about IP Protection can be found in the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware IP Protection FAQs.

What does IP Protection do?
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...
