  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!
  4. Goodness me, how dreary the world is becoming. Does anyone remember the Easter eggs in MS software, or the pirate messages in Avast? They used to make me chuckle. I'm a semi-retired "computer professional", albeit of no great eminence, but "Awesome! You're protected." makes me smile, as does the "Awesome! No threats found." in the popup after a scheduled scan. I smile because the word is a trifle silly, but anything that makes me smile gets my vote! My point is, people have different opinions and reactions. Malwarebytes can't please everyone. I wouldn't make a fuss if they obliterated "Awsome!", but a little bit of humour would vanish from my day.
