I'd never heard of the site before but a quick Google search found this article - https://steemit.com/scam/@thegrinder/the-bitconnect-scam-exposed

They may be a reputable company but I would suggest the Malwarebytes has blocked the site not because it's virus riddled but because there may be questions over the business model. From a quick look at the site, I'd rather keep my money under the mattress.

I'm having the same problem.  The protection log is below.  

I appreciate that Malwarebytes protects me from threats of which I may not be aware.  However, the issue is whether I may make an informed choice.  Thanks.

Thanks for the information about the risks and dangers of bitconnect.co.  However, I'm making a different point.  if I choose to take a considered risk with this product, I should be able to without having to shut down Malwarebytes every time I want to get on the site.

If bitconnect.co were loaded with malware, it makes sense to block it.  However, if it's questionable investment, that should be my choice, being over 18 and all, etc.

If you really want to ignore Malwarebytes' advice, then you can add the website to the list of exclusions by going to the settings/exclusions tab.

I did add it to the list of exclusions, but without effect.  bitconnect.co shows up on the list of exclusions, but it's still blocked by Malwarebytes.

I've read quite a bit about bitconnect.co since I saw your original post and it has all the hallmarks of a classic Ponzzi scheme. So probably for the best......

I think bitconnect is hacking their customers. A few months ago 2 or 3 large customers who actually advertise on YouTube all got hacked. 

 

Search your main drive for bitconnect 

let the search run and you will find a bunch of files on your google chrome directory.  Delete them and never go back to the site. If you do I hope you have a trezor or nano ledger. Also get a program that has a virtual keyboard. I use kaspersky.    If not you will get hacked and lose your coins.
