false positive for theregister.com


Recommended Posts


A reader got in touch with us saying your "Malwarebytes Browser Guard" product is (erroneously) marking www.theregister.com as "it may contain malware activity".

Would it be possible to look into it, as we're most certainly not serving malware.

Thanks in advance!

Although Qutarra seems to think your site is malicious https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/1a99a22b08519729189de6d9ad59ce56266c07b30ddcd32b219b21d2532be4ef/detection I'm not having any problem reaching the site in Firefox from the US West Coast. You might want to have that user contact Malwarebytes directly.

The staff will be by in the morning to address this for you.
