Starting at 2:10AM this morning, I have a log of 15 attempts every 10 minutes or so that are triggering my malewarebytes.org. Shows that it's an OUTBOUND attempt to cdn.skim.gs @ 126.96.36.199 at various ports--none duplicated, just running them methodically--and that it's coming from my browser (firefox) and is being blocked. Ran a malwarebytes.org scan, no issues noted.
I googled and am not finding anything that is helpful. Searched this site as well.
Windows 8, up to date. No other virus protection running on this box as I use programs for programming/design purposes that routinely get messed up with Norton or others.
Log file from Malwarebytes looks like this...repeated many many times with the port varying:
Detection, 9/10/2015 2:22 PM, SYSTEM, GATEWAYLAPTOP, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Domain, 188.8.131.52, cdn.skim.gs, 59972, Outbound, C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe,
Thoughts on next steps?
Browser is working just fine. Not doing anything wonky. All other programs are working well.
