Anti-malware blocks IP hosts

Hi all,

Just a short notice that my antivirus software (Emsisoft Internet Security) is blocking several malicious IP hosts when I'm practicing on Duolingo. These messages appear every time an exercise fails or is completed.

IP addresses that were blocked:

176.32.100.241 54.231.1.184

Both of these seem to be related to Amazon.

Is there any reason why Amazon is related to Duolingo...?

Hi, The problem resolved itself. I didn't have any more IP-blocks since then. Still, this remains odd. Are you using an Emsisoft protection software?
