2. Malwarebytes has repeatedly blocked the same main stream website with a trojan alert for me

over the past several weeks. I sent a screenshot of the alert to the site's IT contact via email and they apparently acted fairly immediately. I no longer get the alerts from their site. It's not a news site and since they have been responsive, I won't name it.

Still, highly recommend supplementing your anti-viral internet security package with Malwarebytes. They have a free version, but I think the @25/year is very much worth it for their premium.

3. This site can also be used to see if Malwarebytes is sending false positives.

.

If 60+ of them say there is nothing wrong, chances are that Malwarebytes just needs to update their block filter or adjust their safe list for one or more files on a website. I have Malwarebytes too--the Premium package. I use Firefox with NoScript & U-Block to further protect my browsing. Also I use PrivateInternetAccess 5-license package for VPN.
