Malwarebytes users experienced a major issue today with reports of most major browsers and related services – including Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Gmail, and Google Drive – being blocked as malware.

Malwarebytes responded to the issue on Twitter “We are aware of a temporary issue with the web filtering component of our product that may be blocking certain domains, including http://google.com. We are actively working on a fix and will update Twitter as soon as we have more information.”

According to Malwarebytes latest tweet, the issue is now resolved, though they provided no details on what caused the problem. If users are still experiencing the issue on their device, they may need to download and install the latest version of Malwarebytes to fix it.

Whatever component of google you have for searching or analytics on Google will be blocked by Malwarebytes. This is because Google.com has been hacked and they have left malware in the cache which gets downloaded to user’s machines. Google say they have fixed it which is proving to be untrue. date today 27th September 2022, Time of Writing. 17:36Hrs.
