Anti Ransomware blocks detection of WiFi dongle after return from hibernation mode


Recommended Posts

When returning from hiberbation mode (win 7, 64 bit) the network connection is lost. I am using a wifi dongle to be able to use the 5 GHz band.

After wakeup windows does not see any wifi network. When I kill the anti ransomware service using task manager, I hear the tylical tones (ding or dong) from windows detecting a new device. After that, WiFi is working again.

Hello mfornoff and :welcome:

Your observations should draw the interest of the MBARW development team. Please create the following archives for developer analysis:

Create a ZIP archive of the directory C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware\
Create another ZIP archive of the directory C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\logs\

Please attach the above zipped archives to your next reply. Additionally, please provide Mfgr's name and model number of the device.

Thank you.

I have attached the complete Malwarebytes directory. It's not that much. The WiFi dongle is a FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N v2. But that doesn't matter. I have tested a few other USB devices. They all show the same behaviour: they are not being detected by windows until the MBAM servcie has been killed. My notebook is a DELL Latitude E6530 running 64bit Windows 7.

Hello mfornoff:

Until a Malwarebytes' staffer/MBARW developer team member weighs-in, the issue you are presently reporting will "go away" once the core technology of MBARW has been rolled into the intended Malwarebytes products and this beta testing program terminates.

Thank you again.
