Lots of "blocked" detections after installing 3.1.2

Recommended Posts

Upgraded from 3.0.6 to 3.1.2 just now. Seemed to work fine; running my first scan.

On opening my outlook email though, I got >100 real time detections with popups blocking outlook16.exe, host.exe, and other files from connecting to the internet. Never had any problem like this before and my system has always been clean from any infections.

Ended up added outlook.exe to excluded processes and all seems well now, but not sure this is the best way to do things.

I welcome any thoughts. Happy to provide any requested data (including exported logs from the events.... just didn't think people wanted to see 100 of them).

Same issue.  Me and 3 other coworkers simultaneously started getting spammed with Website Blocked alerts from Malwarebytes related to OUTLOOK.EXE and LYNC.EXE

We've been running 3.1.2 since shortly after release but this problem started at around 1:15PM CDT.  Outlook will not connect unless I close Malwarebytes or add it to the exclusions list.  Was a bad definition update pushed maybe?
