4,000 Suspicious incoming network connections blocked

Jump to solution

Hi,

I got noticed by network provider that there is a problem with an internet-connected device in my home that's interfering with the network in my area. So, I checked my security history, and I found out that I have already gotten 4k suspicious incoming network connections blocked in this week. Then, I tried using tools such as AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes. They did detect things suspicious, and then I quarantined those things immediately, but I still got noticed by McAfee that there are suspicious incoming network connections. What can I do? Should I reset/restore my computer?

By the way, those suspicious incoming network connections are from many different IP addresses (also including mine).

Hello @hkbb0723 

The blocked connections might be from a server, computer or even a website trying to get into your machine and McAfee is blocking it. We request you to have a word with your ISP regarding those suspicious connections.
