    Risky Connection Blocked

    jonrobert1986

      Hi please help. I have been warned now on two occasions by McAfee that a risky connection has been blocked from the IP Address 74.121.138.232. The company is listed as MediaMath and based in France. I have ran a scan of the system with Mcafee and found no threats but I have used spybot on a few occasions and some tracking cookies often appear and I have seen a registry change.  Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to proceed?

          If Mcafee says it blocked the probe be happy as checking one's history will find hundreds of such blocks a day. Maybe this block has been instigated by the netguard feature go to Web and email protection and firewall and netgaurd and see if that Ip addy is shown.

           

          you can put that Ip into www.trustedsource.com  and says high risk.

           

          To be sure to some scans with the scanners I have in my signature. With getsusp be sure to add your email addy in the preferences and with malwarebytes do not accept the free trial of the premium version use the fully free version.

            I recently got a new subscription to my software back in mid May and thus far the software has blocked over 500 attempts from all over the world so the software is in fact doing its job protecting you.

             

            As Peacekeeper already mentioned if you want some additional assurances run some of the scans he mentioned.
