Suspected Botnet Alert


Recommended Posts

I keep getting an ESET Alert/Warning that an application (firefox.exe) on my computer is trying to communicate with a malicious server (192.157.56.140) on the internet. I got this message on 3 computers on my network.

I've already scanned with Malwarebytes, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, Microsoft Safety Scanner and ESET and there was no problem detected.

On two computers, I uninstalled Firefox, and it seems I don't have this warning anymore. On the 3rd computer, I uninstalled the Hoxx VPN plugins and I also don't have this warning anymore.

You will find the Eset log attached to the 3rd computer. Thank you !

My understanding is that a malicious communication from that IP address had been seen in recent months and the IP address is ok now. The block is going to expire tomorrow anyways.
