    I keep getting this pop up. I traced the IP address back to my local ISP hub. I flushed my DNS cache and still keep getting these alerts. How do I make them go away? Am I infected or is my local hub having an issue? Anyone else getting these? Malwarebytes, SAS, and HiJack This look fine.

    Do you have pre-release updates enabled? If not, do so and run a manual update then.

    I assume the pre-release updates are not on, as I just done a fresh install when V5 became available to the public. I will have to do as you suggested when I get home tonight. In the meantime, how will this affect the DNS poisoning and is this a known issue that other are experiencing? Thanks.

    I'm seeing these messages as well. They appear nearly once a day, and all reference one of my ISP's DNS servers as the source. \(That would be Comcast, and 75.75.75.75)

    What's the story on these? are they benign? false positives??

    I was seeing these all the time, I use a netgear 480 superhub and the problem went away after a firmware update? I was getting a couple an hour, I have not had one since the update I am using firewall 1069. Cannot find a full change log on the firmware update, so cannot work out what happened, however there were no other changes made. I think Marcos said the next firewall deals with this issue 107?.
