Malwarebytes Export Blocked

Recommended Posts

Hello. I was trying to open some PDF files I have saved on my computer. I have opened this file a million times and never had any issues. When I clicked on each of them to open them, nothing happened. Neither opened. So, I went into my Adobe reader, clicked File, then Open, and went to each of the files to open them. They opened fine. Then, I went back to File Explorer where my files are saved and tried to open another PDF file, again, I file I have opened a million times before without issues. Like the others, this file didn't open up either. Then, I got an alert from Malwarebytes saying that an exploit was blocked. I went to Malwarebytes to view the report, this is what it said:

I have no idea what this means?

I then went into Adobe, and went to File, then Open and was able to open the file that way. But, I don't understand the Malwarebytes alert saying an exploit was blocked?

I've had the free version of Malwarebytes for a while. When I first got it, I had the trial version. But, then the time was up and it switched to the free version. Since then, whenever it needed updated I did it as soon as I was notified. I was notified a little over a week ago to update it, which I did. The difference this time was that it went back to the trial version, giving me the paid version for a certain amount of time. I have 7 more days on it left. I thought that was weird, but why complain about getting it? Lol. But, not sure if that has anything to do with it or what?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
