Malwarebytes can't update

Recommended Posts


We currently use Malwarebytes for everyones PC at work.  We have just installed Zscaler (Proxy) and now Malwarebytes can't auto update anymore.  Instead of setting up the proxy in all 30 clients we would like to know where Malwarebytes goes to get the updates.  Can you provide the URL or IP address and then we can add an exception to the proxy so that it will allow the clients to auto update.  I have been looking around on the internet but can't find this anywhere.  Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

Hey @rallen24, Malwarebytes gets its signature updates from https://data-cdn.mbamupdates.com

If you are getting updates from the internet and need the proxy there but not internally, you can input the proxy just for that in Policy \ Updater \ Proxy settings. The clients will pick up that change and only use the proxy for signature updates.

If you are using it on the internal network, the clients will need the proxy in order to receive the proxy from a new policy, bit of a "chicken and egg situation here" to quote Flight of the Conchords. Internal communication proxy is in Policy \ Communication, you choose "Use Windows proxy setting" which will use the proxy you have set for WinHTTP. The caveat here is since the clients would need that proxy to get the new info, one would need to create an offline installer and re-deploy with this new 'proxied' installer package.
