    Phishing Attack?


    I keep getting this message, should I be worried?

    It started while I was working and checking hospital websites. I have checked svchost.exe with VirusTotal which came up negative.

    So is MBM catching something on the forums, perhaps an ad?

    Don't know. It's an outbound request. MS Azure.

    I got the same warning when I booted a short time ago. I had Edge open to National Hurricane Center and that was all. I did a restart and it has stopped. The address was 40.90.23.154.

    Is it less of a concern if its outgoing than incoming?

    "There was a recent false positive for svchost and certain Microsoft sites" as per the Malwarebytes forum.
