  1. Topics on this are now closed, so sadly unable to express thanks that Pidgin website is now unblocked. It seems the original problem was hosting of an infected Office document. Which just goes to show that because a site is one visted for years doesn't mean it can't get temporarily infected, and one should not assume that Malwarebytes is producing a 'false positive'. Actually I didn't, which is why I posted here instead of just overriding the block :)
  2. Malwarebytes Premium 3.8.3 has been blocking the Pidgin chat client website for a week or ten days, due to a trojan. Please see attached screenshot. Thank you!
  3. Similar here, a day or two ago. Win7 x64 Pro, fully updated. Malwarebytes Premium would announce all realtime protection turned off, then on, then off... Roughly every hour. I think it was something to do with an auto-update to Component package 1.0.508. I restarted Malwarebytes, rebooted, to no avail. But eventually it sorted itself out and I've had no further problems. I manually updated other computers (Win7, 8.1, 10) to 1.0.508 once the original computer had settled down, and on those it produced no problems. A mystery!
