Lavasoft IP addresses

Recommended Posts

Hello. My firewall is telling me that ad-aware is attempting to access 82.99.19.52. I looked this address up in whois and it is returning RIPE Networks. Can someone validate if this is a lavasoft address or has my ad-aware been hijacked.

In other internet posts I found update addresses for lavasoft to be 82.99.19.12 through 82.99.19.17. Since .52 is outside this range so I got a bit concerned.

Thanks.

I can't say for sure, but that IP goes to a simple html web page which says "Hi!" in the header and "We're Here!" in the body. I doubt Lavasoft would register IPs under another name or agent. You might want to follow the instructions in my signature and post in the HijackThis forum to see if your system is clean.

Can I get the IP addresses ad-aware uses to obtain updates.

My firwall is telling me that ad-aware is attempting to go to 82.99.19.12 through 82.99.19.17. and 82.99.19.52

These all show as RIPE Networks on whois. When I go to .12 through .16 i get
<?php /* Redirecting to Support Center */ header('HTTP/1.1 307 Moved Temporarly'); header('Location: [url="http://www.lavasoft.com/support/supportcenter/');"]http://www.lavasoft.com/support/supportcenter/');[/url] exit;

When I go to .17 errors out

When I go to .52 I get a message saying "we are here".

I am trying to determine if Ad-aware has been hijacked or if these are valid addresses. I am especially concerned with .52...

thanks.

You're previous post was in the General Support section, so I moved it and merged it with your current one here.

Here's the Wiki page on RIPE: [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIPE"]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIPE[/url]

I just looked up the IPs at ip-lookup.net and all except .52 came back as Lavasoft download servers. Clicking on details for .52 also shows it's Lavasoft, with the range .0-.255
