  1. Hey folks, We've got a brand new Malwarebytes Labs! So why did we mess with a good thing? We decided that we wanted to provide you with even more opportunities for education, communication, and knowledge. So, we created Malwarebytes Labs, your one-stop shop for everything concerning cyberthreats. Here’s what's new: Threat Profiles This new section is like a wiki of threats. Each threat will have its own page that will list relevant information such as a short biography, history, removal, and avoidance procedures. The goal is to make it super easy to find out more about the kinds of malware and attacks that plague you and your family. The threat profile section is searchable, so it's easy to find what you are looking for. We plan to link these profiles with stories on the blog, so you can look up background info on the threat while you are reading a post about a new development. This section is "living," meaning that we'll update it and add to it all of the time, so make sure you check in frequently! New Categories We've condensed our content into five parent categories that allow us to write for a specific audience based on interest and use. Each parent category has several subcategories on topics ranging from Mac to mobile, so it's easy to find the information you're looking for. We have a new category called “101” just for the basics of computer security. These articles make it easy for you to learn something new or pass the info on to a cybersecurity noob who needs schooling. We also have a category for advanced technical analysis ("Threat analysis"), as well breaking news in "Cybercrime" and industry updates in "Security world." Finally, you can keep up-to-date on new Malwarebytes products and company announcements in the "Malwarebytes news" section. If you're the kind of person that likes everything, don't worry: we are still offering all of the content (regardless of category) in chronological order, just like we do now. Find that in the "All" section. Glossary Have you ever started reading one of our posts and come across a term you didn't recognize? Well, we now have a glossary of computer security and technology terms. Just like the threat profiles, this section is alive and we are going to be updating it with new terms all the time. We are also going to be linking glossary terms to our blog posts, so it doesn't take time away from learning about the latest threats. So that's it, that's the new Malwarebytes Labs! We hope veteran and new readers alike enjoy what we have built and will continue building. For those of you who have been dedicated readers for the last four years, I personally want to thank you for your continued support and look forward to making Malwarebytes Labs as great as it can be. Check it out here: https://blog.malwarebytes.org How do you like the new look? Let us know in this thread, all feedback is welcome!
  2. UPDATE: Our security has been established once again and you should have no problems reading and commenting on our blog securely. Thanks for your patience! If you've tried to visit our blog over the last 12 hours, you might have seen something like this that makes you think our site is untrusted or has been hacked. We wanted to let you all know that the site was not hacked and we are just dealing with some emergency maintenance as far as our security certificates go. See WordPress usually auto-renews security certificates so it's not really a problem we run into often. For whatever reason, this time our certificate was not renewed and communicated with WordPress to get this issue resolved as fast as we could. Security certificates are exchanged between your browser and the server hosting our blog to ensure that both of them are legitimate. In addition, once identities have been confirmed, a secure connection is created between the two so that everything you see on blog.malwarebytes.org is actually us and not a malicious attacker trying to fool you into downloading malware or getting exploited. We do apologize for the inconvenience. As we always try to provide the highest level of security advice, if you see something like this in the future, avoid the site until you see the lock icon in your URL bar. Stay Safe and Stay Alert!
