MalwareBytes conflicting with TortoiseSVN

Recommended Posts

Hello MB forum!

For work I have to use TortoiseSVN, although I noticed lately that every time I try to do an 'SVN Update', the program will throw the same error, on random files:


This stops if I close MB entirely, and happens again as soon it's running.

It's not the first time I had this, as it happened 1 year ago too, but it stopped doing that on it's own. This time it has been going on since I formatted my PC, about 4 months ago.

I already tried to add TortoiseSVN and that folder to MB exclusion lists, with no luck.

I'd need some help :)

I've just tried to disable that only, and I managed to do an SVN Update just fine.

Any way I can avoid disabling that option every time?

Hello again, @AnandaT

We believe this issue is related to similar reported issues with the Web Protection, for which we believe we have a fix in our upcoming release. The specific date of that release is yet to be determined, but it's currently undergoing internal testing.

In the meantime you may install the Malwarebytes browser extension beta which is currently available for both Chrome and Firefox.  It uses the same black list database as Web Protection in Malwarebytes 3, but also adds blocking for many ads and trackers as well as behavioral blocking of tech support scams, phishing sites and clickbait links; things that Malwarebytes 3 is not currently capable of.  The only downside is that it only shields your browser, not your entire system the way that Web Protection in Malwarebytes 3 does, but it's still better than nothing.  Also, once this issue is fixed, you can keep the extension installed as it was designed to work alongside Web Protection in Malwarebytes 3.  You can find out more and get the download at the following links:
