Website blocked notification from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium

Version 29

    If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium has blocked a malicious website, you can configure Web Exclusions to bypass the detection and access the website.  However, accessing a malicious website can result in an infection on your computer, and as such, we recommend you only exclude websites and applications you are familiar with.


    When a malicious website is blocked, as depicted below, you may have encountered a domain, IP address, or process that is suspicious or known to contain malware.  

    More information on website blocked notifications are available in the article  Received a Website Blocked notification from Malwarebytes for Windows.
