[RESOLVED] – Malwarebytes Update causing network connectivity issues

UPDATE:

Today at 1:55PM, Malwarebytes released v.12 update that has fixed the network connectivity problem. OIT has tested the update and can confirm that it resolves the issues.

We highly recommend rebooting your computer at your earliest convenience after the update is installed.

If you continue to experience issues, please contact the OIT Help Desk for assistance.

******************************************************************************************************

Earlier today Malwarebytes released a signature update that is causing computers to lose network connectivity. This is a widespread issue and are affecting anyone who has Malwarebytes installed.

The temporary workaround is to disable Malicious Web Protection under Settings. This will restore network connectivity. Once Malwarebytes releases a new update the Malicious Web Protection feature should be turned on again.

We will be monitoring the status of this issue and apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
