[German]It seems that users of Malwarebytes security software was hidden by a strange issue. The real time protection keeps tuning off. An update shipped today seems to fixed the issue (till the next case).
I’ve been pinged by a German user at Google+ – he noticed, the Malwarebytes is causing suddenly serious trouble – the real time protection keeps tuning off.
Update ends with null byte database
It seems, see this forum post, that an Malwarebytes update ended with MBDB data bases with a size of 0 bytes.

Users affected worldwide
According to MalwareByte’s support forum (see this forum thread), many users has been affected. Malwarebytes software reports that the Real-Time Protection Layers are deactivated.
Not only version 3.1.2 was affected, other users are reporting the same with 3.0.6 (there is a support article Malwarebytes 3.0 Real-time protection layer turning off? addressing this old issue).
Users updating to version 3.1.2 can’t activate Real time protection. MalwareBytes has released an update (see MalwareBytes forum) which seems to fixed the issue.
