We have 3 full licences of Mbam. Have always been very satisfied withe the program but the new IP-blocking function bugs me.

Isn't it possible to add an IP to a -exclude-list of sites where you do want to visit even if the new ip-blocking feature wants to block it. I now have shut down this new feature totally because I really do want to be able te visit a site that is now totally blocked.

For example. I often visit www.cdcovers.cc to find a cover. The new IP-blocking blocks this site completely because there are malwarespreaders who use this IP also. The developers of Malwarebytes seems to forget that there can be more sites on one and the same IP because they are hosted on the same hostserver. You can't block this IP because it will effect all sites on that server, even the good ones.

An IP is actually only blocked if;

1. The owner of the IP fails to respond

And/Or;

2. The owner of the IP refuses to remove the malicious content.

Sadly #1 is the case here.

I understand the reasons for doing this, but I am tracking an issue with a very large hosting company where the policy has resulted in the interruption of service to thousands of innocent websites because the ip address blocked is the dns forwarder the company uses. Can you please provide me with more detailed information on how the process works?
