Hi I have the same problem (for the past 3 days at least)!

I did a complete scan but it did not help.

Is my PC compromised ?

@Aas Welcome. Your PC is not infected, Kasperky blocked the malicious link.

Thank you Berny .

1- how to stop these alert messages? 
2- Is it an outgoing malicious link ? in that case there is a malware in the PC?

3- Or is it someone trying to attack the PC from outside?

@Aas This is an external link, can you please specify how/when  you get the alert.

It started March 23rd

@Aas Does the alert comes up spontaneously ?

It comes around 10times then it stops for maybe  10min then alert again … very weird.

if I had to guess I would say that the PC is compromised and trying to send info outside ...

Good day everyone.

 

Is there any optionon how to remove the alert at least, since we know Kaspersky has blocked the transmission.

Was update KES to 11.6 and executed the Advanced Disinfection technology.
But the problem persist.
I had a ticket and sent a GSI updated.
Maybe can be mor effective format the pc.

Facing same problem for last  two to three months. This keeps on popping :

@ghalli Welcome. Please see the post above your post.

Hi,

I found this link (http://185.38.111.1:8080 )in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Teamviewer :ProxyAutolist

Hello, I also had this problem recently and resolved it.  My new router set the name of my home network to “domain.name” by default and the website that Kaspersky is blocking for everyone here was created to exploit routers which do so.  This article explains everything and further solutions for Windows users can be found in the comment section:  https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2016/05/25/when-domain-names-attack-the-wpad-name-collision-vulnerability/.

Cheers!

If you are not going to deal with the root of the problem, you can probably mask the alert by creating a “block” rule in “Security Controls | Web Control” for this URL.

Should have put this in my original post but for those who don’t want to read the article I linked above or don’t care to understand the exploit and just want a solution:

The following steps work for Windows 10:

Click the Windows logo on the bottom left corner and select Settings.
Select Network & Internet.
Select Proxy from the list on the left.
Make sure “Automatically Detect Settings” is disabled.


The following steps work for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7:

Click Start or the Windows logo and then find Control Panel.
In the control panel select Network & Internet and then Internet Options.
Go to the Connections tab and select LAN Settings.
Make sure “Automatically detect settings” is disabled.”

 

Alternatively/additionally you can rename your domain name to something other than “domain.name” in your router’s settings.  (Run Ipconfig /all from a command prompt and you’ll see it listed as the DNS suffix.)
