I run Malwarebytes and I consistently get this error message when I run Monero Gui Wallet.

Should I add this IP address as a trusted entry in Malwarebytes?


According to Abuse IP DB, this IP has been involved in hacking and spam attempts several times. This could be also a dynamic IP used by DSL subscribers. However, it should be save to whitelist all outgoing connections for monerod, since it only syncs with the monero network and shouldn't be able to download any executable code (unless there is a serious security flaw in monerod itself).
