  1. Hello @Bonkers and That so called "System Optimizer and Rogue Anti Virus" is classified as a PUP.Optional.Segurazo After carefully following this site's removal procedure below starting at How do I remove Segurazo?, please reply to this topic with that system's status. Removal instructions for Segurazo Thank you.
  2. Hello @OrdinarySoft and Only Malwarebytes staffers can whitelist. Post #2 merely confirms that a MBE Beta block has been verified, characterized, and will require investigation. Thank you for your patience and understanding. cc: @rakka
  3. Although the URL may be clean, and whitelisted, its IP address (shared by others) may be problematic: https://hosts-file.net/default.asp?s=
  4. Hello to All: This morning I updated my trouble-free 3.9.23 with today's release of without difficulty. A following Threat Scan, with DTBS 4.0.407, took a few seconds longer but finished clean as earlier today. I can only imagine the long and hard work by the good folk behind the scenes. Thank you for all you do.
  5. Hello @beddie and It is likely that your Mac's browser(s) has/have been hijacked. Please follow the instructions within the first locked/pinned topic at the beginning of this sub-forum: How to remove WeKnow malware (and others) Then, please reply to this topic with the status of your Mac. Thank you.
  6. Hello @brcd: My MacBookPro11,3 is no spring chicken either. Apple's Catalina 10.15 may be my Mac's last OS update. All good things...
  7. Hello @brcd: Thank you very much as your Mac's Identifier confirmation as it could be valuable to the devs/staffers. Cheers!
  8. Hello @brcd: Would that make your Mac's identifier an iMac9.1 Please feel free to correct me in a reply to this topic. Thank you kindly.
  9. Hello @GuruGuy: Disabling the App Block feature in 3.9.23 is perfectly understandable on those computers with issues. However, uninstalling without reinstalling might be more difficult for many to fathom as it is a viable alternative.
  10. Hello @GuruGuy: The v3.9.23 responses, seen by some, do not encompass the entire spectrum of Macs. It is quite likely this is why this was not uncovered in Alpha/Beta testing. How many Mac models are involved? Will the proposed fix be effective across all models and compatible with the release version of Catalina 10.15? (Which does not exist yet.) I do not envy the devs/QA at this point. With great respect...
  11. Hello @SteveRC: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) Perfect. Thank you.
  12. Hello @SteveRC and Similarly to @Popeye's attribution above, @treed has advised the forum that in-house resources have been identified that may provide useful data regarding the v3.9.23 difficulties: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/250138-just-updated-to-3923-and-have-issues/?do=findComment&comment=1327966 On the Mac in question, it may be quite helpful for devs/staffers to select the Apple Menu Icon  -> About This Mac -> System Report... and in a reply to this topic, site the entry under: Hardware Overview: Model Identifier e.g. MacBookPro11,3 etc. Thank you.
  13. Hello @mmohrmann and Please follow @treed's instructions within the first, pinned topic in this sub-forum: How to remove WeKnow malware (and others) Then, please reply to this topic with the status of your Mac's Safari browser. Thank you.
  14. @TeMerc Hello Tom: I'm sorry. The MBE Beta phish block for Chrome persists:
  15. I see a similar message on a macOS platform at this moment. I agree. The rep block for: http://vsrevogroup.net/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html is now resolved. The rep block for: http://vsrevogroup.net/revosetup.exe persists. HTH
  16. Hello @Kurti47 and You may transfer one valid premium license from one PC to different PC by following the instructions in the Transfer or Deactivate Malwarebytes Premium license key document. Please reply to this topic with your status when completed. Thank you.
  17. Hello All: No trouble has been experienced with Malwarebytes for Mac on a MacBookPro11,3 (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) running macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G87) with all real-time protections turned on. HTH
  18. Hello @PrinceAli: Please excuse my delayed response due to prior family commitments. Your latest choice is not my first choice as I have indicated above. Yet, you may quite successful after all. Please update this thread with your results later. Good luck to you.
  19. Hello @PrinceAli: It is not clear yet as to which computer you propose to use. However, yes, Kaspersky, as well as other top tier AV companies, have free Linux based utilities that allow you to generate bootable rescue media for use with the testing computer. If the failed computer in question ran regularly scheduled scans, I would not be surprised if the HDD is clean. Yet if Malwarebytes for Windows and Malwarebytes AdwCleaner are run from an operating system, other malware be be found. HTH
  20. Hello @PrinceAli: The primary goal is not to infect your computer with possible malware from suspicious sources. If the failed laptop's motherboard has been successfully replaced, then its power-on self-tests (POST) should pass. If this is the case, bootable Linux based Rescue Media is still a viable solution as I stated above and no need to involve another computer. If this is not the case, isolate all of your unspecified computer's mass storage devices (HDD/SSD), and connect the HDD/SSD device from the failed laptop and run the same or similar Linux based Rescue Media. HTH
  21. Hello @PrinceAli and welcome back. Since you are already familiar with the Anti Virus product you use on your own computer, you may wish to consider burning that same company's bootable "Rescue Disk" and running it on your parents computer. Follow by running a Threat Scan with Malwarebytes for Windows and Malwarebytes AdwCleaner. Then your backup. HTH
  22. Hello to All: FWIW - No noticeable changes to Malwarebytes for Mac 3.9.23 operation have been detected with my last night's update to macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G87) with the Supplemental Update included. HTH
