The last few days (since Sunday, 4/30), I've been getting occasionally activity from Russia and Ukraine hitting my malwarbytes. One of the two IP addresses is 178.90.91.212:51614, the other is 93.171.173.21:51614. They're both attempting to run svchost.exe. I've run several root/trojan detectors and they came up with nothing. Malwarebytes and it's anti-rootkit program both come up with - nothing. Maybe that's good. I do have two computer games from eastern europe on my machine that have been there for a very long time. One for several years (World of Tanks, play it every day), and Warthunder (installed it once, played it for a few hours, haven't been back). On Saturday I had installed Sims 4 and downloaded some player-created content (doh) which I've since removed. Has anyone had this, know what's going on?

 

thanks

Did you get this information with tcpview or netstat, and is svchost.exe listed on the same line as these IP addresses?
