BSOD Kernel Security

Your issue is different.

As for why Malwarebytes blocked qBittorrent, this is because qBittorrent, and all Bittorrent software, are what are known as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications meaning it connects to many different servers/IP addresses (this is how files are downloaded through qBittorrent) and because of this, sometimes qBittorrent will connect to a server that is also known for hosting malicious content.  This is because servers/IP addresses are often shared by multiple sites, so while what you are downloading through qBittorrent may be perfectly safe, some of the sites hosted on some of the IP addresses that qBittorrent connects to may be malicious.  Such connections are not a threat however, and you may exclude qBittorrent from the Web Protection component in Malwarebytes to stop the blocks from happening without compromising your protection (your web browser and other critical web facing programs will still be fully protected from malicious websites and other malicious content).  To do so, add qBittorrent.exe to your exclusions using the method described under the Exclude an Application that Connects to the Internet section of this support article.

However, P2P applications introduce security risks that may put your information or your computer in jeopardy.  Risks of File-Sharing Technology

Thanks for the information I really appreciate it. I'm fine with Malwarebytes detecting the connections in fact, I'm happy with the alerts. I just wanted to point that I got a BSOD with the KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE message. Checking the dumped memory file with WinDbg I got the following reason: 0x139_3_CORRUPT_LIST_ENTRY_mwac!unknown_function

In any case, I updated Malwarebytes activating the beta updates as indicated in this thread and so far, it is working fine. I should have created a different thread for this, sorry for that.

Very common mistake on forums, jumping on other peoples topics.

Hope it corrects your issue.

A new version of Malwarebytes has just been released which includes fixes for several BSOD issues.  Details are available in this post.

To install the new version, open Malwarebytes and navigate to settings by clicking the small gear icon in the upper right, then click the Check for updates under the General tab and allow it to download and install the new version, restarting your system once it completes to ensure that the new components are loaded into memory.
