Concerning exploit detected notification

Options

Hello, I have recently gotten a notification from Bitdefender total security saying that an exploit was blocked from some IP address - I have blurred it out just in case it is sensitive info.

Bitdefender does not detect this as malware and I am not what to do about the exploit. Please could someone tell me what to do about this.


Regards

    Exploits are distinct from malware. Exploits capitalize on vulnerabilities within software, akin to holes that malware can exploit to infiltrate your device. Malware uses these vulnerabilities to circumvent your computer's security measures and infect your device.

    Bitdefender has blocked the exploit, ensuring your safety. There's no further action required at this time.

    Where do we pull logs associated with notifications from this exact notification "Exploit attempt blocked?" It has happened to me a few times in the past few days, and every nslookup I do with the IP traces it back to the Linode provider. I'm attempting to file a formal investigation request with the provider but need plaintext logs for evidence. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi I am getting exploits being blocked from IP's

    How do I get more information as to what the exploit is !

    There's a real lack of information here ! I want to pursue this further and try and resolve the situation with updates or whatever..

    I am finding Bitdefender lacking information when it claims to have done things ..

    Thank you

    Paul
