RTProtectionDaemon at 60% CPU and eating all available HD space

Recommended Posts

In the Finder, choose Go to Folder from the Go menu. Then paste the following path into the window that opens:

/Library/Application Support/Malwarebytes/MBAM/

Then click the Go button.

In the window that appears, select the Logs folder, then choose Compress "Logs" from the File menu. Unless there's something very atypical about your system, it will not be able to create the Logs.zip file in that folder, and will instead create it on the desktop.

Send that Logs.zip file to me in a direct message here. (Don't post it publicly on the forum.)

Same here. Uninstalling.

Hi, gang.

I decided to uninstall Malwarebytes while this was occurring.  The HD still filling up in System was still occurring, so it's probably not MWB's problem but that's unclear to me.

I'm hoping to take my iMac into the Apple store in the next few days to have them look at it.

From the log files you sent me, it looks like your installation of Malwarebytes for Mac has been damaged somehow, and is not operating correctly. I'd recommend uninstalling and then reinstalling. If that doesn't help, you may have a problem with your system, though what that might be I don't know.

My CPU usage for RTProtectionDaemon is around 60% as well.

Re-install did not resolve the issue

I sent you a message with Log files

I've never had anything close to this kind of problem and I don't believe there have been any reports from others since yours, so I'd have to conclude there is something unique about your setup.

If I were you I would file a ticket here https://support.malwarebytes.com/community/consumer/pages/contact-us and be prepared to submit a detailed diagnostic report.
