I would side with Malwarebytes on that one. Patching a vulnerability is one thing, not knowing what caused it and if it's still open to be exploited is another.

Imgur Abused in DDoS Attack Against 4Chan!

 

...UPDATE:

After talking with the staff of Imgur about what they did to fix the problems and prevent them from happening again in the future, we have removed our block and there should be no further issues. Make sure you update to the latest database version to remove the block...
