  1. It is actually XP that starts unreliably and sometimes it takes longer than others, triggering the MBAE service timeout. If you really want to run the latest, try switching the MBAE service to Manual, and then creating a batch script that runs at boot, sleeps for a few minutes, then starts the MBAE service and then runs the mbae UI executable.
  2. Yes, a few years ago we added the most common and popular email clients as default internal shields for blocking malicious attachments.
  3. You're correct. This is mostly designed for corporate environments.
  4. Hey hake, long time no talk. Hope you're doing ok. Pen-testing is a legitimate activity when done correctly. Some pen-testing tactics mimic malware activity and some don't. We've basically created this option for people who want to detect pen-testing activity even if it is not found in-the-wild in malware attacks.
  5. Hi hake. You can cancel the subscription and continue using the perpetual standalone beta for consumers which is basically the same functionality.
  6. Arthi is on vacation, trying to cover for her. Try this link instead: https://malwarebytes.box.com/s/qmsnivh3l0gy795g6a1lizqsfwfqjxsy
  7. Hi hake, long time no speak. Glad to see you're still around keeping an eye on MBAE! Yes, the team is still very active and introducing lots of improvements into MBAE on a regular basis. Thanks to you and all other testers for helping us keep MBAE effective and evolving over time!
  8. Try disabling the LoadLibrary protection for Browsers under the Anti-Exploit Advanced Settings -> Application Behavior protection.

    Because by default MBAE shields certain popular apps (browsers, office, java, pdfreaders, etc.). You need to add hmpalert64-test.exe as a custom shield so it gets protected by MBAE before running the test.

    mbae-test tool

    MBAE-TEST.EXE simulates exploit behavior like executing from the Heap, ROP gadgets, etc., but it is not weaponized and instead simply pops open the Windows Calculator. But it does trigger exploit behavior to see if the installed protection has real exploit mitigations in place or not. The reason that most AVs don't detect MBAE-TEST.EXE is because either (a) they don't want to detect it with signatures as it would make it obvious that they don't have any modern exploit mitigation technology in their product, or (b) they don't have any modern exploit mitigation technology in their products. So yeah, you guessed it, the reality is that most AVs don't have effective and signature-less exploit protection. Sophos' detection is based on their acquisition of SurfRight's HitmanPro.Alert technology, which is similar to Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit technology which does not rely on any signatures. Re: the AMTSO PUP crapware, we'll add detection for it to avoid other users questioning whether we have PUP protection in our products or not. But given the irrelevance of AMTSO as an organization, and the fact that their President is the owner of AppEsteem, a certification body whose business model is to certify PUPs in exchange for money, I wouldn't pay much attention to it.
  11. Thanks for bringing this to our attention! While we hate driver/registry optimizers and crapware bundlers just as much as anybody else, and are glad that Microsoft finally caught up to our aggressive stance against them, one important distinction is that in this case Avast Free is not preventing you from updating drivers without paying, and it is not using outdated drivers as scare tactics to dupe users into purchasing. Also, the bundled software is Google Toolbar and not some other scammy toolbar (although many people would argue that ALL toolbars are crapware). We have not shied away from detecting competitors who crossed the line in the past in terms of scare tactics (e.g. PC Pitstop PCMatic), and we will keep an eye on the tactics of this an other optimizers to see if they cross the line in the future.
