false positive


Recommended Posts


My customer is using your software and gets the following message when trying to access my site: MalwareBytes popping up to say it has "successfully blocked access to malicious IP:"

The domain name is www.salesedutainment.com and is hosted on Yahoo. This site is not malicious. Please fix this immediately and send me an email when it is fixed.

It's not your site that's being targetted. The IP Protection targets IP addresses only. Unfortunately in this case, your site happens to be on an IP that has a plethora of malicious sites;


I'd strongly urge you to move your site to a different hosting company, or ask your present host to move your site to a different IP until such time as they bother to respond to and take action on, abuse reports.

It is old problem with Malwarebytes and big disadvantage of IP protection. Tha;s way i have disabled IP protection feature as it is more annoying than useful.

As you usually know on one IP address (server) are usually hosted a couple hundred web sites. If only one site from a couple hundred has been hacked of cracked or whatever program will block all other innocent site's.
