Hi @thisisu,

Can this be revisited and remediated? If I'm reading your link correctly, it sounds like propaganda3's entire site is being blocked because of a .jpg that's 404ing. Is that right?

Also, for my understanding, in the free version, there's no way to get around the browser warning unless you completely uninstall Malwarebytes. Is that correct? I understand that an incredible service is being provided, for free, but the ability to temporarily disable it seems like a feature that should be included for free ... otherwise it seems like a lot of folks might uninstall (and never reinstall) to get around potential false positives.

Thanks!

There is no website protection active in the free version of the actual Malwarebytes program.

Now there is a free Malwarebytes Browser guard program that can be installed in Firefox and Chrome and browsers based on them.

You can read the user guide on how to exclude sites here https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038520414?guard=1&x-source=userguide

@Porthos, thanks for straightening me out. It looks like I have "Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection" installed, which I'm guessing is something that's controlled by a remote administrator as opposed to a local user?

The part that's confusing me is that the page that gets loaded (https://block.malwarebytes.com/?lic=Licensed&cat=Trojan&lang=en&prod=NCEP-WIN&ver=3.8.5.2971&cpv=1.0.651&upv=1.0.16650&ip=162.242.211.6&url=dev.propaganda3.com) says "We strongly recommend you do not continue.", but I'm not seeing anyway to continue ... and that's what's making me think the only way to get around this is to uninstall.

I am guessing you are just a user whom the Admin of your systems control the endpoint protection?

Yes, that sounds right. What tripped me up was that I was the one who installed it on my machine, so I can remove it, but not stop it temporarily ... I think.

Why does a stand alone system have endpoint protection on it, Is it a business computer?

It's a business computer. It's one of two PCs at the company (everyone else has Macs) so it's primarily managed by myself.

Windows 10 Pro. My PC is not connected to a Domain.

Are you the owner who paid and installed Malwarebytes? Up to 10 non domain connected computers can use the regular Malwarebytes Premium as long as they do nor run a Server OS on them.

I'm not the owner, but thank you for the tip about Premium; I'll ask! Thanks again for all the help!
