Receiving virus alerts

Post by dmitche3 »

For the past month I have been receiving notifications from Malwarebytes about an exploit being blocked, A Java Malicious inbound packet. It only occurs when I start UMS not PS3 server.

Is anyone else getting these warnings? Fortunately Malwarebytes is blocking it but that's not to say it is blocking everythign. I'm putting a sniffer on within the next few days to see what type of packets UMS is sending out.

Thanks for reporting this, can you take a screenshot of that message from Malwarebytes please? And any other information available.
I guess "inbound packet" would mean it's coming from somewhere else to your computer, not being sent from UMS, as that would be an outbound packet

I'm trying to get screen snapshots of the message. I took screen prints and put them in a RTF text file and zipped it. Don't know any other way of doing this.

Thanks.
