Imgur still being blocked.


Recommended Posts

I was asked to post here by DaleDoc. I don't have the IP address of imgur but it seems to be the entire site. I have it listed in the exclusions as imgur.com, https://i.imgur.com, i.imgur.com, api.imgur.com. I know it's the "Malicious website protection" that's blocking it because when it's on, it's blocked. When I turn it off it's unblocked. I don't get the little popup in the right corner though when I access imgur.

Please post the IP you're seeing blocked (I've checked here and *.imgur.com isn't blocked, nor is the IP it resolves to)

 

I'm not seeing an ip being blocked. As I said in the previous post, I'm not getting that little window to pop up. 

 

As stated by someone else with this problem, *.imgur.com does not seem to work.  https://*.imgur.com however does. That daledoc guy does not recommend that though. Should I add that to the exceptions and see if the problem stops?

I posted one in the OP, but here is another. NOTE: I've just turned off website protection all together because it was just so intrusive. I guess tomorrow I'll turn it on for a day and repost another log with it on.

It doesn't appear to be in the logs but it definitely is the malicious website protection that is causing it. Turn it off, no problem, turn it on and it almost immediately start getting the ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED, turn it off and it goes away again. Rinse and repeat. 

 

I'd also like to point out, I'm not the only one having this issue: 

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/Malwarebytes/comments/3qbw4r/mwb_is_still_blocking_imgur_ive_tried_everything/

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/175254-malwarebytes-continues-to-block-exclusions-and-false-positives/?p=1002905

 

Seems that a very small minority are getting this but it's very frustrating. 

I'm going to change browsers for awhile with malicious website protection turned on and see if that changes anything.

Cheers for the update.

 

Unfortunately, if I can't reproduce it, I can't advise as to what is causing it. At present, the only thing I can suggest is to try a clean install of MBAM.

Changing browsers didn't work, reinstalling MBAM seems to have worked.
