Malwarebytes False Positive IP 126.96.36.199 Concerning Chrome Browser
Chrome added a new feature that checks to see if there are any multicast devices in your area. Multicast is a relatively new feature that transmits your screen to another screen, device or TV, wirelessly. Not the best idea in a secure environment, so we are questioning the wisdom of scanning for such devices automatically.
In any event, Malwarebytes apparently agrees with our assessment and flags the constant scanning as malicious which is causing a viral warning/popup to appear in the lower right portion of the screen. To eliminate the issue, if you are using Chrome, simply disable Chrome’s scanning by following the instructions provided in the link below:
