An MBAM-update making computers unusable !
An MBAM-update caused a lot of false positives which resulted in systemfiles being quarantined, making computers unusable and not even able to reboot.
more info at MBAMīs forum: ***False positive Trojan.Downloader.ED*** - Malwarebytes Forum
MBAM has now created a new update which fixes those problems, so it seems to be safe to update again.
This reminds me of the problems with McAfee a few years ago.
Once again computers becoming unusable because of "automatic quarantine"....
This is exactly why i never allow any "automatic quarantine" / deletion of files on my system !
I always set the option to "notify", so i can take a look at what has been detected, and then decide what to do.
Although iīm not using MBAM on my testsystem at the moment, i would have been unaffected by that update....

^ Yes, it has been fixed. Most such problems are usually fixed in a day by the companies.
