Questions on Malwarebytes Mess

So i was majorly affected by the recent malwarebytes problem with its update. we run malwarebytes for business for our network. it killed all networking on every windows or server based machine. from what i read, the problems with the networking that people were having, were on networks with certain IP ranges. this makes sense, as my network that was messed up, was a 172.0.0.0 network. if anyone else has had this problem, i would like to see what they went through and experienced. We ran a patch that they released, and my computers were functional again for the most part. now that they are ok, i want to know if im safe now, or if i need to take other action on top to finish this mess. I have already opened a ticket with malwarebytes and have not received any response, so im hoping someone here can give me some insight. my customers are asking about it and i hate keeping them waiting.

their blog tells all..  It was a malformed update that caused the problem.  If the machine was offline when the update occurred then no problem, but if you got that update then it is a problem.  Their blog tells all https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/220408-web-blocking-ram-usage-how-to-recover-corporate-users/
