  1. 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 I guess that’s windows only process - I reset the Macs clock, well to be accurate I switched off "set date and time automatically", changed the time manually and then reactivated "set date and time automatically". The time seems to be correct. I'd really appreciate any tips please. thanks
  2. 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 menubar there is no option to "Take System Snapshot" [see second screenshot] So, I opened malwarebytes - but there seems to be no option to take a system snapshot there either: Include a system snapshot taken with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac on the affected system Choose Take System Snapshot from the Scanner menu, in the menu bar at the top of the screen When the snapshot window opens, choose Select All from the Edit menu, copy the selected text Paste the copied snapshot into your post here I hope this is sufficient info. Now that Little Snitch has blocked the RTProtectionDaemon I guess malwarebytes cant work properly? Little Snitch tells me "On 15 Feb 2018, RTProtectionDaemon tried to establish a connection to sirius.mwbsys.com. The request was denied via connection alert." thanks for your help With my regards
  3.
