    Malware bytes blocks an incoming connection from 80.82.79.163 supposedly associated to Spybot exe . Is this a Spybot address I can or should exclude from blocking?

    Am I reporting it there as a false positive? I did not see where you said if this was related to SBS&D or not.
    Thank you very much for the response.

    It is not.

    A topic at their forum where the IP: 80.82.79.163 shows in a log:

    "Detection> Protection, Malicious Website Protection, IP, 80.82.79.163, 21320, Inbound, C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe,"

    Thank you. I had looked up the address in WHOIS but that did not tell me whether it was associated to SBS&D legitimately or not. It's interesting then that it mentions Spybot Search and Destroy at all. I use them both as I fight a lot of malware on friends computers as one will frequently detect something the other won't. Again thank you for verifying that I should continue to allow MB to block it.

    There's malware that calls itself spybot.exe but if malwarebytes makes a detection you are not sure about it's best to post at their forums so they can check your log.

    All the best.
