Malwarebytes memory leak
How to fix antimalware service high cpu memory usage
Malwarebytes’ Malwarebytes Anti-Malware product received an update today that has created a slew of issues for those who use it. This latest security update caused mbamservice.exe to use a significant amount of memory and up to 90% of the computer’s CPU. These problems have been resolved by a recent update.
Many people have been talking today about mbamservice.exe consuming a lot of memory and spiking the CPU to over 90% utilization, as first mentioned in the Malwarebytes forums. Some machines have crashed or become too unreliable to use as a result of this.
Fixing the Malwarebytes problem can be difficult because mbamservice.exe consumes a lot of memory and CPU when you reboot and login. This can cause your machine to become unstable and unusable, preventing you from installing the update.
If method 1 doesn’t work, switch to Safe Mode with Networking and try the steps above. It could be easier to install the updates in safe mode until Mbamservice.exe causes the device to become unstable.

A screenshot of my resource monitor is attached; I’m not sure where my 16 GB is going!? I was playing a game when it crashed due to a lack of memory; however, this happens with other games I play, so I don’t believe it’s the game. (Path of Exile / Grim Dawn)

A memory leak is a form of resource leak that occurs when a computer program improperly handles memory allocations, preventing memory from being released that is no longer required. When an object is stored in memory but cannot be accessed by the running code, this is known as a memory leak.  A memory leak has signs that are close to a variety of other issues, and it can usually only be identified by a programmer with access to the source code of the programs.
When a computer program uses more memory than is needed, it is called a space leak. In comparison to memory leaks, where the memory that is leaked is never released, the memory consumed by a space leak is released, but it is released later than anticipated. [three]
By reducing the amount of usable memory, a memory leak decreases the computer’s capacity. In the worst-case scenario, too much usable memory is allocated, and the machine or computer ceases running properly, the program fails, or the system slows down significantly due to thrashing.

I just signed up to make a comment on the same subject. It’s not just any leak; my memory use keeps increasing, and my system becomes unresponsive in about 5 minutes. I tried disabling protections, but it didn’t seem to make a difference. I initially assumed it was a problem with the browser, so I shut down all other programs, but to no avail. Before I restart it, I’ll be waiting for a patch.
I just wanted to mention that I came across this this morning. It took me a while to figure out what was wrong because I was having the same issue and initially blamed my browser until I looked at the resource monitor in Task Manager and noticed that malware bytes kept climbing in memory and never fell. The solution mentioned in the first post is efficient.
