Annoying Exploit.JavaMaliciousInboundSocket "Exploit Blocked" Scareware

Go to solution Solved by rcmaehl,

I'm getting spammed with annoying Exploit.JavaMaliciousInboundSocket notifications 2-3 times a minute.

These pop-ups should be setup to not occur if there is no Java process running. With the current setup it is nothing but scareware for users. The internet is being scanned all the damn time by Shodan, Malicious Actors, Researchers, and much much more. Please fix this.

The root cause of this is my UniFi AP attempting to contact the UniFi controller runs on this computer as needed, but the UniFi controller not currently running. MalwareBytes has had an issue with this for EIGHT YEARS (Unifi Community Post).

The worst part of this is that there's no way to exclude this spam from MalwareBytes as it doesn't even show up to be allowed

@rcmaehl Could you post a log instead of the screenshots please.

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
