Windows 10-64 21H1 w/MBAM 4.4.5.   Every once in a while if I start LibreOffice (latest version, , MBAM blocks it.  Here's the details:

Hello @OldMainframeGuy


Sorry for the delay


Open Malwarebytes, click the small gear on the top right, and go to the Security tab.
Scroll down to the bottom and click the Advanced settings button
Click on the "Application behavior protection" tab
Uncheck "Office WMI abuse prevention"
