Malwarebytes interrupted with a pop-up alert saying Firefox was trying to connect to IP address

167.71.99.170 (https://urlhaus.abuse.ch/url/348428/),

which apparently might be bad?

Interestingly, the above urlhaus link initially reported the hit on the IP address per a Pascal Geenens (@geenensp on twitter) who writes for a security blog at

Thanks to any and all who might be able to help!

First, let's check your system.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article;
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

Hi FredMcD Ran both Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security with no results (full scan of all files including rootkit search). No add ons or extensions install.

Is there some way to dig into what firefox was doing at the time the request was made to the IP?
