I am getting messages from Malwarebytes that it is blocking outgoing messages. Here is today’s log:

11:41:26               Andrew                MESSAGE            Protection started successfully
11:41:35               Andrew                MESSAGE            IP Protection started successfully

11:43:04               Andrew                MESSAGE            Database updated successfully
11:43:06               Andrew                MESSAGE            IP Protection started successfully
12:41:56               Andrew                IP-BLOCK    (Type: outgoing)
12:41:57               Andrew                IP-BLOCK    (Type: outgoing)
12:42:01               Andrew                IP-BLOCK    (Type: outgoing)

The first IP address is in Moldova, the second in Ukraine … which  makes me very suspicious! But a scan has not revealed anything untoward. Should I be worried?

    Accepted Solution

    Your router might be infected.   There are viruses that muck with the DNS tables stored in the router.

    Reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router.

    Note: After resetting your router, it is important to set a non-default password, and if possible, username, on the router. This will assist in eliminating the possibility of the router being hijacked again.
