Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.

  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop

September 21, 2022 - False positive with Google


PDF Contents:


Malwarebytes Nebula/MBAM - Web Protection False Positive
22 Sept 2022
Revision: 1.2 Date: 22 Sept 2022
Malwarebytes Customer Confidential
Malwarebytes Products Affected:
• Nebula cloud products
o Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection
o Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection for Servers
o Malwarebytes Endpoint Detection and Response
o Malwarebytes Endpoint Detection and Response for Servers
• Malwarebytes OneView
• Malwarebytes 4
Event Description:
On 21 September 2022 (06:48 PDT), customers using the above-listed products began reporting the blocking
of certain domains, including google.com. Upon learning of the issue, the Malwarebytes engineering team
worked rapidly to resolve the issue by introducing a rollback procedure to correct the problem with version
1.0.60360. (8:25 PDT). Upon further investigation, it was discovered that unwanted blocking started in version
1.0.60357 where, during an effort to centralize and standardize rules in our repository engine, an error was
introduced into the web filtering database. This error caused various domains to be inadvertently blocked.
As of 22 September 2022 (9:22 PDT), Malwarebytes has fixed the root cause for this issue and added additional
system checks to prevent any similar scenarios from happening again. We continue to identify additional areas
for improvement to further improve reliability and limit false positives.
We plan to resume all updates for our products shortly. In the meantime, our cloud protection technologies
are providing added protection to our customers until all other signature updates are released.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to review existing processes and make additional improvements.
Corrective Actions Taken
The following Corrective Actions have been identified:
• A database update was made (version 1.0.60360) available for all users which removed the offending
rules. This prevents the false positive from occurring for any customer.
• New system checks were added to prevent the same scenario from happening again.
• Malwarebytes Support advised customers to disable web filtering until the product is automatically
updated to the latest version (1.060360 or higher), which resolves the issue.
• Malwarebytes is continuing to perform exhaustive analysis of our processes to ensure this type of
issue does not affect our customers again.
What Should Affected Users Do?
Updating the database to version 1.0.60360 (or newer) should prevent the blocks to occur.
Our Commitment to Our Customers:
We are putting in place new procedures to prevent any future incidents. We sincerely apologize for the
inconvenience caused to our business partners and remain committed to maintaining the highest standards
of product quality and technical excellence.
