MWB3 has been reporting  blocking an outbound connection to tf.symcd.com while I am using IE.

I don't recognise this website - do I need to do anything?

I am getting the same detection any time I open Pocket on firefox. I attached the log below.  False positive?

Same here. My guess is it's a false positive as pocket is harmless.

I see in December 2016 this issue - blocking ss.symcd or similar pops up.  Is this a real menace?  Do I have a problem?  I see this message occurs when I visit, for example, a banking website.

I am getting a similar problem. Could this have to do with the Firefox update?

sr.symcd.com is being blocked now when I navigate to a banking website.  Not seen this before.  Generally no such blocking on other websites

Same problem here.  I was doing my morning routine of visiting various news websites and Malwarebytes 3 did an update.  After that started receiving notice that these websites have been blocked.....

 

tn.symcd.com

gn.symcd.com

ss.symcd.com

 

Malwarebytes version: 3.3.1.2183

Component package: 1.0.236

Update package:  1.0.3281

Blocks occurred with both Firefox v57 and Internet Explorer 11

I read in another thread that a fix for this is on the way.

I thought that my browser (Firefox 57 Quantum) had been taken over, have had 267 detections all from *.symcd.com. I get this from sites that definitely shouldn't have a problem, such as trusted banking sites etc.

But a fix I think is coming.

Edit - sorry Dashke - posted too late :)

Yes, it looks like a fix is coming.

In the meantime, you can get around this annoyance by manually adding a Website exclusion for "symcd.com". That will exclude the entire domain from detection.

Thanks everyone, this has been fixed and update should be available soon. :)

Is there a way to manually make sure we get the fix? I am still getting blocking. Is there a setting for how often MB updates?

Hi 

Very Similar Problem!

When trying to login to Natwest Bank I get a popup from Malwarebytes saying it has blocked a malicious website... sr.symcd.com

Malwarebytes does not prevent the banks login page from loading, or prevent me from signing in.

I'm very confused and worried! 

Windows 10 Laptop - Chrome Browser - 14 Day Free Trial Of Malwarebytes.

Was planning on buying Malwarebytes when trial runs out. :unsure:

I know this is just a website that's been blocked. and I can cope with that. But False Positives especially if they are software false positives scare me just as much as real malware. Probably because I've seen more false positives in my computing life than actual malware. So I do hope false positives are few and far between if I'm going to be keeping Malwarebytes paid. 

Thanks!

Good to hear a fix is one the way - hopefully it will apply no matter which browser is being used. Most posters seem to be getting it with Firefox while, for me, it is happening with Chrome.

I am getting SIMILAR blocked website pop up messages from MALWAREBYTES 3.2.2 on Windows 8 also using Norton Security Suite (SYMANTEC). The pop up says: SS.SYMCD.com, and PREFIXES TN, S2, GN, SR, etc.

Norton says they KNOW nothing.

Am BOMBARDED with these POP UPS, just starting TODAY.

It says OUTBOUND.

What is going on?

I believe MANY people need help.

 

Many thanks.

Steve

Hi Steve - I don't think it is anything to do with Symantec - I don't have it, only MWB3 and Microsoft defender and get the same issue.

Please ACCEPT my APOLOGY for being a little  DENSE.

The issue is 100% FIXED as of this MOMENT  will NOT recur again as of 9:20 AM CT.

Or it WILL be fixed?

Do I need to do ANYTHING?

I rely on MALWAREBYTES very heavily.

Thanks

Steve

Same thing here.

Did not experience the problem yesterday but today it is almost happening on all of my morning visits.

Yes, the latest version of Firefox.
