It's obviously an FP. I've sent it to K for analysis. Will update here once I get a reply.

-------
Update 1:

Due to the complexity of detection (Heuristic), it seems that K needs more time to process this FP.
Update 2:
Sorry, it was a false detection. It will be fixed.
Thank you for your help.
K removed the detection.

I hope someone can tell his testing experience, does even this new version Malwarebytes 5.0 Beta blocking/detecting in Real-time malware variants on execution only?
Previous version 4 had either a weird bug or it's default development: known malware as file type .exe are usually detected/blocked, but on-demand scan is unable to detect other malware file types such as scripts js,vbs or others like Java .jar

So the latest "beta version" is 5.0.2.39 it appears you do not have the "beta updates" option enabled. In the latest beta version for some reason "killswitch" has been disabled it is a known issue and is being worked on.

malwarebytes not offer lifetime license
Not since 2014 I believe.

I think the way it works with version 5 beta is that you need a separate VPN license for the VPN to work, its sold separately from the Malwarebytes program, a license for the main program will not activate the VPN. So you need to use 2 licenses to activate everything, not sure if this will change once out of beta, I doubt it.
