What should I do about this?

Hi @Forumuser 

Greetings From McAfee.

We would like to let you know McAfee Firewall checks the incoming IP address which is associated with phishing websites, sites infected with malware, or otherwise malicious sites, have a 'bad' reputation in the McAfee server. So, they’re blocked from connecting to your PC and show up as risky connections in your McAfee software.

For more information about to know bad connections kindly click on the below link.
