Interference With VPN


Recommended Posts

I've got a client who requires the use of Pulse Secure's Secure Application Manager to connect to their network.  https://docs.pulsesecure.net/WebHelp/Content/PCS/PCS_AdminGuide_8.2/CHAPTER 24 Secure Application.htm

I've been using the VPN software for years but Malwarebytes 3 interferes with VPN traffic.  For example, when I try to connect to SQL Server using Management Studio on my PC the first login will eventually fail with "network name not found". If I click OK within about a minute of the error message to log in again then it will succeed. More than that causes it to fail again. Any task in Management Studio that requires a new connection process shows the same fail -> immediately  retry -> success  behaviour. For example, all queries run in the same tab window will run fine no matter how long between query executions. Opening a new tab window (which requires a new connection) fails and then succeeds when retrying.  The same sort of behaviour can be seen when trying to remote desktop into a server using Remote Desktop Connection.

Shutting down Malwarebytes makes all the problems go away.  This issue exists on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (upgraded my PC, uninstalled and reinstalled Malwarebytes but that didn't fix the issue).

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes 3 Help forum.

 

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following: 

Spoiler

If you haven't done so already, please run these two tools and then attach the logs in your next reply:

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained is safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

  • Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST)
    1. Download FRST and save it to your desktop
      Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit
    2. Double-click to run FRST and when the tool opens click "Yes" to the disclaimer
    3. Press the "Scan" button
    4. This will produce two files in the same location (directory) as FRST: FRST.txt and Addition.txt
      • Leave the log files in the current location, they will be automatically collected by mb-check once you complete the next set of instructions
  • MB-Check
    1. Download MB-Check and save to your desktop
    2. Double-click to run MB-Check and within a few second the command window will open, press "Enter" to accept the EULA then click "OK" 
    3. This will produce one log file on your desktop: mb-check-results.zip
      • This file will include the FRST logs generated from the previous set of instructions
      • Attach this file to your forum post by clicking on the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." or simply drag the file to the attachment area

One of our experts will be able to assist you shortly.
