  1. It's ransomware if you are infected... "A new Java-based ransomware targets Windows and Linux" June 2020
  2. Latest Version Installed as of a couple of days ago, but it was happening with the version before that as well. I periodically keep seeing a debugger box pop up for mbamtray. Nothing in the event logs and mbamtray is still functioning so Im not sure what's triggering it. Anyone else seeing this?
  3. I'm not saying it's abnormal (for Malwarebytes), nothing appears wrong and I certainly do not need a lesson on how RAM works, but I want to bring something to the attention, and request, of Malwarebytes, and this has certainly been brought up before... I appreciate the program, but sincerely can we do something about the amount of RAM being used? At any given time, MB service is running about THREE times higher than the second highest program on all my computers (Windows Defender). Additionally, it has doubled in size from 3.8.3 to 4.1. There has to be something we can do to knock this down a few MB's folks.
  4. Does anyone have the download link for the full offline version of the software? Thanks
  5. Im not a beta tester. I learned a long time ago that when MB puts out a new version that you need to wait a couple of months and I did. You people simply dont do enough testing. I reverted back to a system image that was created about an hour before I "upgraded" to 4. There is no longer an issue. The final straw for me was when the first scheduled scans ran on my computers, since the "upgrade", and one had an unhandled exception and the other had my user interface all jacked up as shown in the screenshot below. As I said I waited a couple of months since 4 was released and evidently I need to wait a couple of more. You know MB could really save everyone a lot of headaches by testing more and also by not asking for logs every single time someone has a problem. You could do a bit more on your side to troubleshoot. My issue was very basic and Im certain you have testing computers at your facility where Firefox is already installed. All you had to do on your side was block protocol 255 outbound and you can see the issue yourself and look at all the logs you desire. The alternative to that is to ask whoever designed it the simple question of why 255 is being used. People dont have time to keep jumping through hoops. I've said my peace. This topic can be closed or someone can be proactive and figure out how this software works and provide an explanation or a fix.
  6. As stated, this started on two different computers IMMEDIATELY after upgrading from 3 to 4. I have no extensions added in Firefox other than what comes as is with the browser. The whole diagnostics things is a crap shoot. You have multiple threads on here about problems with MB and Firefox Is no one at MB able to tell why their program is attempting to make an outbound connection with an obscure protocol??? Seems a bit fishy to me
  7. Its confirmed... I closed Firefox, walked away from my computers for about an hour, came back and checked my firewall logs and it didnt happen the entire time. Opened up Firefox on both computers and within moments the connection blocked popup occurred on both. There are multiple threads about MB4 and FIrefox issues and this appears to be yet another. Bottom line Protocol 255 is very odd and I wont be opening up that in my firewall unless someone can explain whats happening
  8. BTW, Im not 100% sure as of yet because it's only day two, however, I note there are a number of threads on here with people having problems with MB ver 4 and Firefox. Well I just noted that no sooner did I open Firefox on my second computer that I got the blocked connection message. I also note that the blocked message popped up on the computer Im on only while Firefox is open. So, in summary this just started on two computers just as soon as I upgraded from 3 to 4. It happens multiple times an hour. From what I can tell right now it only happens when Firefox is open (not 100% confirmed).
  9. Not certain that an update didnt occur at the moment it starting going off, but it happens multiple times in less than an hour (MB is set to update once an hour). So that would seem to indicate that its not happening during an update (unless it didnt update for some reason and made multiple attempts... maybe the server was down IDK) and definitely not when MB is starting up.
  10. So I just updated from 3 to 4 (specifics below) on two computers and all of a sudden both computers are attempting a new connection with a seemingly strange protocol (reserved)... whats up with this?
  11. Seriously... WTH. Just got this popup. This is nothing more than "clever" advertising. STOP IT! All it tells you is there is something out there that only the premium version can remove. I don't need THREAT WATCH pop ups. Knock it off
