  1. Hi adas, Hi alvarnell, thanks so much adas: that connections list a was super useful I found a rule in Little Snitch (from 2018) which was disallowing connections to: RTProtectiondaemon strange that it had not previously prevented updates! my "reports" tab looks good - it now states: updates: protection updated to 4.0.424 lovely, such great support from you guys neilB
  2. Hi thanks there in "update" mine shows 3.9.27 thanks neil
  3. Hi Just replying to check "notify me of replies"
  4. Hi I am using the marvellous Malarebytes 3.9.27 on a mac (High Sierra 10.13.6) and am seeing "Updates are not current" on the Malarebytes dashboard the last 2 days. When I rollover then click on "check for updates" the button, it goes black then "feels the click' by flickering, but nothing happens, [screenshot] I'l mention that I do use little Snitch, but I have checked that to see if I accidentally blocked Malwarebytes from calling out and I see nothing under Malwarebytes in my list of rules. BTW: If I go to Malwarebytes in the menu at top of screen near the app
  5. Alvarnell thanks I am frustrated I can't find the article that said update macs to OSX 10.14, but if there is no iMessage OSX vulnerability that's cool good to know again, much appreciated Neil
  6. Hi MAXBAR1 strange then if I go to "updates" on the Mac mini [ v] it shows "you are using the latest version. something amiss? thx N
  7. AHA, that makes sense thanks that was on my Mac (v, on my MacBook (v3.9.27) it doesn’t pop up item names as it scans. hence my concern, it seemed unusual looks like one of those app's needs an update perhaps? N
  8. Alvarnell thanks I swear I saw an article about updating Macs to the latest OSX to get around there iMessage bug, but hey, I can't find it now. again, I appreciate your kind attention N
  9. Hi guys when I run Malwarebytes I see 'Trojan.StreamStealer.GSGO' pop up for a few seconds, that doesn’t seem good? there are a few 'adware' listings too, it all shoots past real quick so I can't note them and I can't work out where I might see. list of these potentially suspicious items. Anyhoo nothing ends up in quarantine and Malwarebytes reports " - - - you are clean" no threats were listed at the end of the scan - I would expect "Trojan.StreamStealer.GSGO" is a threat?? thanks lot great to know you are out there neil
  10. Treed, thanks for the reassurance I thought it looked OK, I am amazed that Fedex could not loom at their own link and confirm they'd sent it. Anyhoo this whole thing has got me thinning more seriously about my online security so something good came out of it. thanks man
  11. Hi Alvarnell thanks for your help, I am very grateful I have searched again and the only BBC post I can find now is here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-49165946 my Mac OSX is up to date within High Sierra 10.12x, of course Apple are beyond OSX 10.13 now - so I can't instal the latest version of OSX. I could get nothing from Fedex about this message, in the end I received another from the same number that did include a tracking number and later a parcel, so they seem like a bunch of idiots given their support could not recognise the ref number accessed via the
  12. HI I am learning why it is vital to have Malwarebytes on a mac - but I have a question please some background: The UK BBC has reported an iMessage hack and suggests user update macs to the latest OSX 10.13, I am not in a position to do that, using 10.13.6. I received this iMessage supposedly from Fedex, Your FedEx package is due for delivery by 02/09. To reschedule, go to [link removed] before 23:59. To opt out, reply STOP it took me to a very convincing looking 'Fedex' website website where I had to add my postcode to "log in", then that shows a package I
  13. Hi, I am using Malwarebytes v (check for updates tells me that’s latest) on Mac OSX 10.12.6. I am seeing a request to buy/subscribe or be downgraded to "free" and lose "real time protection" I also see the "Updates are Not Current" warning - is not subscribing yet my problem? no more updates 'til I buy the application? when I click on "check for updates" the control panel flashes and then the warning re-appears. I've read these posts and a previous thread but nothing is shining a light on my issue - - The suggested "MB clean" appears to be an exe, so
  14. Hi I have been ruining Malwarebytes a while on my mac, thanks for l making it available. Definitely provides an air of security. Today I saw this error message from "Little Snitch" about the RTProtectionDaemon and an issue with the process code signature [screenshot attached]: I could not find any info about this here, but google did provide some info on other forums. Nothing definitive though. Do you need a system snapshot? this seems like an error outside my mac? I read this text on your site about system snapshots, but when I look at the malwarebytes item in the m
