Rogue Link warning


Recommended Posts

I received a “Rogue Link” hit for a Microsoft update site.  A bit surprised, I investigated the link IP and verified it as Microsoft via a Whois search.  No fan of Microcrash, I can see the temptation of labeling it a rogue company, but we would also have to add Apple to that list if we were to be honest.

Anyway, is there a reason that Malwarebytes is blacklisting the Microsoft link, or is it a false positive?

Here are screenshots of the scan and WHOIS results:

Go ahead and get us the actual log.

You can find Scan and Protection logs within the Malwarebytes 4 program in the following location




RTP stands for Real-Time Protection and is where automatic protection operations would normally be logged




If you click on the View option you should get something similar to the following with other options available.






Thank you

Since this link is from a .txt file, it is not quarrantined/blocked.  I had copied a link so that I would be able to track which security updates I have and where I got them from.  The log doesn't appear to show anything of interest, but it is included below.  Thank you for your time and expertise.
