Re: McAfee GTI in Threat Prevention is blocking 172.217.6.174 which is a google IP address

Hi,

Thank you for reaching out to Mcafee Community!

The IP address does appear to be from Google, but looking at the relations it seems to act as a CNC server for a botnet. If not now may be at some point of time.

This IP seems to be part of some communication of certain malicious files.

Refer: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/ip-address/172.217.6.174/relations

One of the related file that connects to this IP is

https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/9a9a85460307df3ef490450343df625e8994c1b0155b9b60b6dbb16e5de64d98...

However, For specific concerns or questions on the reputation - please submit an email to "**personal information omitted**"

Please list the URL you are inquiring about, list its current reputation, and why you disagree with it.

I am certain they can review and let you know if it is a legit block or false.

 

Hope this helps!
