MoxieMomma I also know that I don't know everything so I do ask question.
My backup computer is down at this time. If it was working I would do a test using it. I don't care to do testing with only my main computer working at this time. So I ask questions.
Removing the KB probably would not hurt anything but I'm a bit cautious under my circumstances at this time.
I've always seen it as MBAM (MalwareBytes Anti-Malware). Search for for MBAM will get numerous hits for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I just did a search for MAM and got squat for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

While I hadn't had a problem yet, I removed the KB anyway and hid it. So far, no problems.

What really bites my backside (besides tall dogs) is I had my computer set to only download updates and waitn for me to manually install them sincen I like to wait a few days to make sure something like this doesn't happen. For some weird reason, that got changed to download and install, just in time for the rogue update (mutter, mutter, mumble, mumble).

Ah, OK.
Well, without wishing to drift off-topic, I am just a home user, but the folks at Malwarebytes actually do use "MBAM" for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (and "MBAR" for Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit, and "MBSB" for Malwarebytes Secure Backup). But no matter....
Having said that, if you are having trouble with the program, there's an excellent user forum here: Malwarebytes Forum and if you're a paid user of the PRO version, there's a helpdesk option here: Malwarebytes : Contact us for Consumer Support


Anyway, back on-topic....
AFAIK, I don't think any issues you're having with Fx and/or MBAM relate to the MS patch in question, although, aside from certain Kaspersky products, the MS article didn't mention anything else specifically.

Cheers!

Why is everybody so concerned with my acronym? If you don't like it don't use it.

I think it has effectively been pulled 2 and a half hours ago. If you still see it, re-check. If you see it after that, you might have to erase the contents of the Software Distribution folder.

Just to add, I uninstalled it, I don't see it anymore, and I haven't hidden it.
I believe Microsoft has removed it from the update-push to look into it further. What a hassle.

I'm having all kinds of goofy problems with FF20 and MAM. I'M wondering if this KB can be causing them.
Thank you MoxieMomma for the information.
Does just removing the KB hurt anything?
Several people are reporting issues with Malwarebytes PRO on the Malwarebytes forum.
If you're using the real-time protection, try turning off Malicious Website Blocking on startup.

Hi:

I'm the OP in this topic.
I'm also a >7000+ member over at the MBAM forum.

FWIW The issues with MBAM PRO have NOTHING to do with MS KB 2823324.

There have been recent reports of high CPU usage (especially among XP users with low-end hardware) and audio latency (on certain hardware platforms).
However, many of the users reporting issues are also experiencing software conflicts, malware damage, and other issues.
The MBAM staff and developers are well aware of all issues and are working to correct them.
But they are not related to Patch Tuesday updates.
(FWIW they have nothing to do with the recent program update, but rather, with the way the website blocking module works on certain systems.)

So, I am just a home user (and not affiliated with MBAM in any way).
I am just reporting this with the respectful and humble request that we stay "on topic", please, regarding MS KB 2823324 and not mix "apples and oranges"????

Thanks much!
