    Sudden Phishing Attack or Rootkit or Virus ????


    I have no idea what is happening. I have seen the attempt just this afternoon on three of my networked PC's but, SO FAR, Malwarebytes AntiMalware Premium has blocked attempts on all three. Malwarebytes says "Malicious Website" - "Category: Phishing". This PC system is Windows 10 (Build 18362.628) and besides Malwarebytes, I have Bitdefender Total Security installed. The other two PC's where I have seen the same blocked attempt, are also Windows 10. The blocked attempt is outgoing, where "C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe" is trying to connect to Domain: ipv4.login.msa.akadns6.net - IP Address: 40.90.137.126 - Port: 443

    Can someone please tell me what is going on? I have temporarily disabled Bitdefender Anti-Virus module on one machine and I have started an online scan with the "Sophos Virus Removal Tool".

    Thank you!!

    Well, there appears to be a problem with the certificate. You should probably contact Malwarebytes support.
    IP belongs to the Microsoft, but probably DNS requests failed, so it fails to retrieve the correct domain name.

    Thank you all very much. I contacted Malwarebytes Support. Problem was a false positive. Problem is now SOLVED.
