RE: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium & Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium for FREE! #21
Why does MBAM itself classify the hosts file as hijack malware?

I do not know, I only have the malwarebytes rule in my hosts file.

Same. It just detects it as malware with the added line. Just thought it was strange.

Weird, try restarting Malwarebytes.

I actually just deleted the line from the hosts file and it says I still have premium at the moment so I'll see if that lasts.

This was an Issue (false positive) on MBAM's end a little while back. I believe they've since fixed It.

Have you updated to the latest definitions?

Okay then.

So I assume since the latest definitions have been updated, you're not experiencing any Issues? If so, that's great.

No I meant to do what the thread said to do I had to redownload MBAM which means everything was the latest when I got the false positive.

Oh I see, sorry I completely misunderstood your post.

That's quite strange that you're still experiencing Issues. If you haven't done so already, It's probably best to define the Hosts file In MBAM's exclusions list.
