Hey BigLou!

I work for Ad Lightning, the company that got flagged here. We reached out to Malwarebytes and they confirmed our flag was a mistake, and they fixed it. Unfortunately, until folks update their software, our URL will still be flagged.

We actually work to fight malware and bad ads. Our clients use us to stop those annoying "You've won an Amazon gift card!" redirects, and other malware stuffing. I'm guessing you're right, one of the custom servers you work with might have had an ad from a client of ours, so our script ran in Steam, and Malwarebytes flagged it and blamed Steam. Here's an article about us from GeekWire if you want to know we're legit!

Definitely don't delete your Steam web helper! You want that haha (I play TF2 as well :D)

Here's what Malwarebytes told us folks need to do in order to stop that flag:


If the customers are using our cloud program, cloud.malwarebytes.com, they will need to log in, then disable web protection on the policy that their endpoints are on, wait a few minutes, then re-enable web protection.

If they are using our business on-premise or our home consumer version then those should take effect automatically after obtaining updates.

Hope this helps! If you have any questions, feel free to email us!

Sorry, I copied my post from elsewhere, a lot of folks are having this flag. We're sorry you're dealing with it! But it just means you visited a client's site on Microsoft Edge and they were trying to help by using our script. Happy to answer any questions. I hope the details about how to update fix the issue!

@BigLou    Please be sure that your Malwarebytes for Windows program is all up to date.

Start Malwarebytes.   Then on the Dashboard screen, look to the right-side frame, scroll down to the section "System".

Click on blue-color "Current"

Be sure that the program is fully up to date.

Close the window.

See if the block notices go away.
