Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

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:

Spoiler
  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.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop

What do I need to do please?

Honestly, stop using Utorrent. If you need a torrent program use one that is not loaded with adware like qBtorrent.

File sharing involves using technology that allows internet users to share files that are housed on their individual computers. Peer-to-peer (P2P) applications, such as those used to share music files, are some of the most common forms of file-sharing technology. However, P2P applications introduce security risks that may put your information or your computer in jeopardy.  Risks of File-Sharing Technology

The act of torrenting itself is not illegal. However, downloading and sharing unsanctioned copyrighted material is illegal, and there is always a chance of prosecution if caught by the authorities.
Torrenting non-copyrighted material is perfectly fine and is allowed. However, be aware that we have seen increased malware bundled with software downloads over P2P.

Recent Ransomware infections have been seen to encrypt user data so that no one can decrypt the data without the private key.
When sharing files, please keep in mind that you're increasing your system's attack surface area, which can increase the risk of infection.

Scan all files before running them. https://www.virustotal.com

If you don't need or use the P2P software, you should uninstall it.

Games that use P2P

Malwarebytes can often block Steam and other games because Steam uses what is known as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology, meaning it connects to many different servers, workstations, and IP addresses.

Sometimes Torrent based software will connect to a server that is also known for hosting malicious content. This is because multiple sites often share servers, workstations, IP addresses.

So although what you are playing or downloading through Torrent-based software may be perfectly safe, some of the sites hosted on some of the IP addresses the Torrent-based software connects to may be malicious.
Such connections are typically not a threat, and you may exclude Torrent-based software from the Web Protection component in Malwarebytes to stop the block alerts.

Generally speaking, your web browser and other critical web-facing programs will still be fully protected from malicious websites and other malicious content.

To do so, add the game executable program file to your exclusions using the method described under the Exclude an Application that connects to the Internet section of Exclude detections in Malwarebytes for Windows

https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038479234-Add-to-the-Allow-List-in-Malwarebytes-for-Windows-v4

NOTE: Some torrenting software binds to your network card, and it may not be possible to exclude from Malwarebytes.

 


As you can see, almost all of the Torrent Clients have multiple detections and should not be installed on your system. However, if you choose to do so, you're increasing your system's attack surface area, which can increase the risk of infection.
