    Hello @lucd

    That is a database lookup function on the part of these extensions that both editions of MBE Beta use.

    thank you
    although it must be said their definition is very vague
    In our Malwarebytes product, “possible suspicious activity” encompasses a variety of behaviors that are commonly attributed to technical support scams, cryptojacking, browser hijacking, and other types of harmful or potentially unwanted programs.
