Malwarebytes update
« on: November 23, 2020, 02:04:37 PM »
Yesterday, my premium version of Malwarebytes, said it had a new update. I downloaded and installed it as I was hoping to keep my machine clean and safe.
Today, Malwarebytes says it is blocking my access to the forestryforum.com as it is a risk due to the fact that it is phising site.
To get in, just now, I had to add the forestryforum to an exclusions list, so that it won't block me any more.

Has anyone else had this issue?

I had the same issue and did the same as you did. Not a cyber expert by any means, but I think it had something to do with FF certificate it looks for. Malwarebytes didn't like something about it - might just be out of date?

The recent malwarebytes update has a glitch causing websites with a certain type of security certificate to show false positives. If you have a concern, check the results with a google safe browsing test.
