Malwarebytes protection update caused massive spikes in memory usage
A protection update that Malwarebytes published Saturday caused some serious side effects when the product spiked memory usage and crashes across their customer base.
They sent out an update to resolve the issue automatically for customers, but if you’re still noticing problems with Malwarebytes using massive amounts of memory, or your system is still crashing, you may not have the latest update.
Start by restarting your computer. You may have to restart twice as Malwarebytes customer service states that it may take up to two restarts after the update to stabilize the system.
Then, if restarting your computer does not solve the issues, download and run Malwarebytes Clean, which can be found at the link below.
