  1. Well, I have added the program to the Exclusions - along with every related executable I can find, AND any folder the programs are running from - and I'm still getting the alert. If I keep going down that road I might as well just uninstall MWB! But in researching my question, I came across dozens of people asking about exactly that - why, if I've allowed the program am I still getting alerts? Is there an easy answer for that? It seems - from the many times it's asked - that it doesn't get resolved. But, really, no way to bulk add? How about a config or .ini file somewhere, or using RegEdit? This seems like such a reasonable feature to add to MWB I'm surprised there isn't even a work-around... Thanks, S. PS: thanks for the timely response!
  2. I have a known-safe program that is consistently talking to a pool of about 200 different IP addresses, and MB will complain from time to time about any one of them. Rather than enter each address separately, can I simply list them in bulk, separated with something like a comma or space? Either that or loaded into file somewhere? I didn't see this particular question in my search, but I doubt I'm the only one who's asked this... I've also tried to add the application (and any related executable I can find, AND the folder it lives in) as an exclusion - but I'm still getting alerts. MB must separate the application from the target website, and treat them independently as possible threats...? Thanks!
  3. Incidentally, is there a way to back out of the false positive? I have "alert user" set wherever possible, and I got a pop-up saying keybase was going to be blocked - but it went by too fast and now Keybase won't run unless I disable Exploit protection in Malwarebytes. How to I reset it (so I get the pop-up again), or find out where I need to make an exclusion? For this false positive in particular, it looks like cscript.exe is really what was flagged. Can this be white-listed? Or does that bypass the purpose of programs like MWB?
