Security Software Programs / Re: Malwarebytes - weird behavior
« Last post by plodr on August 11, 2020, 08:05:38 PM »
I fired up my laptop and had a look. One report is listed in the console. I looked in the Program Data and 2 are listed. The one that is showing but also another dated July 11. I wonder if this glitch hides the reports from the console after a month but they continue to remain on the system?

Anyway, I removed the July 11th report. If I can not see it in the console, I don't want it taking up space in a folder I will rarely look at.

Now all I have to do is to try and remember to look on my desktop on August 24th and see if the July 24th report vanishes from the console.

Thanks Digerati for testing and Pete! for confirming.

I may just get rid of all those useless reports too. Interesting. I only see 5 items. One from 2019 and the last few which I can't delete from July and August. So it appears I don't have much cleanup to do.

The site isn't blocked by Pale Moon for me.  Have you used that site to upload any files? 

Never used such a site.

But I thought that MBAM is blocking palemoon.exe not that site.

This appears in every report, every day.

Same symptoms here, but I will wait a bit before doing something manually.

Something I noticed:

In my daily reports I have this:


-Blocked Website Details-
Malicious Website: 1
, C:\Program Files\Pale Moon\palemoon.exe, Blocked, -1, -1, 0.0.0, ,

-Website Data-
Category: Trojan
Domain: www.cjoint.com
IP Address: 163.172.14.176
Port: 56092
Type: Outbound
File: C:\Program Files\Pale Moon\palemoon.exe


We need Metallica here. :)
Metallica is always welcome here!  As to Cjoint.com, a translation of the site from French to English shows it to be a site for uploading photos/documents, etc. and the IP address shows that it is has been hosted at that address for over 17 years on a server in the U.K.

The site isn't blocked by Pale Moon for me.  Have you used that site to upload any files?

BTW: I didn't need to close the program, but had to grant "administrator" permissions.
Yeah, I figured that would probably work, but since even then, open files can still avoid being deleted even with admin permissions, I just took the lazy way out. So I just exited the program, deleted the files, and started it again.

Plus, I have W10 Pro and I never know what administrator permissions W10 Home users can grab.

Anyway, good to see your way works too. Thanks.

........I found the report files. They can be found in C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\mbamservice\ScanResults ......
I could not delete them because Malwarebytes had the folder locked. So I exited the program, purged the folder and restarted Malwarebytes. It then showed no scan reports. I ran a quick scan and 1 report shows and the program seems to be running fine.

So, if you want to purge your reports, it appears safe to do so manually.


That did the trick.
