V05 seems to be working (touch wood)

Can confirm v05 is working so far.

 

Edit: Retract the above, still blocking things furiously. Strike 2..... 3rd fix attempt is the charm?

Nah, 05 still screwed over here too. I think I'm just leaving realtime off until Monday at this rate.

 

Thanks for the A+ support, MB team!

Not for me.

I spoke too soon I'm afraid. I opened a second tab and it seemed okay (Firefox) but when I closed it down and restarted FF the same problem was back, so V05 isn't working

Because your DNS is blocked too! What a complete and utter disaster. Especially if its google DNS, once you start blocking DNS servers, your stuck with a catch22. Cant update because of the blocks, but you need to update but you cant. 

In a personal or a small company environment its easy just to disable things and get around. But in large corporations where everything is tiered and graded, you just created an economical disaster for that company. Yikes.... 

Luckily its Saturday here in North America so the impact should be minimal. 

Have to disable all protections.

v06 is out. Still blocking everything. Strike 3 and still no response from Malwarebytes support. Sweet! Top notch.

If they are continually pushing definitions but cant really "find the problem". There is the slight chance that the system was HACKED. 

Because, I dont see someone creating that big of a mistake in a definition file to block just about everything, However, thats something a hacker could and would want to do... 

Look into that one.

Nope, not saying that they were. However judging by how Malwarebytes software is acting and that their definition updates they have pushed 4, 5, and 6 hasnt fixed it, Well one could only assume... 

I dont know the architecture of the software, but Somehow its ignoring the rulesets issued by the newer definitions file for some reason.

When i checked my console machines with v02 had the issue...i don't know for sure if the console was completely up to date but it should have been based on the checkin date.

This didn't work for us.  We had to kill the entire client.

I have a gut feeling that they either seriously bodged an update, or the potentional for ths system being hacked is there. How else can you explain it?
