Tekkit contats Malicious IP

Question

Every time tekkit loads the map I get a malwarebytes warning that outbound traffic is going to a malicious IP and the game crashes. Malwarebytes doesn't even want me to go there through the browser. Picture for reference.

A big number of AV programs will warn you if java attempts any outgoing connections. I'm using Kaspersky at home and I see warnings daily.
I'll research this specific IP. Is that tekkit you are trying to run?

@CrazyTesla We're analyzing the issue.

There are some outdated mods in tekkit that are trying to connect to a site that was a statistic gathering service in the past.
The site is now in the wrong hands but the mods are still trying to connect to it.

The solution for now is to change the config in config/modstats.cfg
Search for the line

B:AllowUpdates=true

and change it to

B:AllowUpdates=false

save the config file and restart the game.
We're working on a more permanent fix.

Yup. That's exactly what I was thinking. I just didn't know how to make the mods stop trying to talk to it.Seems to be fine now.
