  1. Hello @Popeye: @treed may confirm the following. I too performed a clean reinstall of Malwarebytes for Mac v4.8.12 near the end of March, 2021 and after, I took note of the complete absence of previous history having first employed the MB-Mac-Uninstall-Reinstall AppleScript applet. The utility, that you and I likely used, does appear to do an excellent job. In the case of the DTBS, I believe v4.0.547 was baked into the v4.10.4.4264.pkg installer. Perhaps if all the manual update confirmations and scan reports were a bit more chatty with details... HTH Reference: Unins
  2. Looks like this forum was down beginning around the 3PM hour Pacific time. All seems okay now. Woof!
  3. Hello @Xauma95: Not quite. Also, as @treed tells us above, MBG for Mac Safari will be managed by a different internal Malwarebytes team. I'm sure we all look forward to that day. Reference: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/274966-malwarebytes-for-mac-410/?do=findComment&comment=1460845 As a generality, you may additionally wish to monitor https://forums.malwarebytes.com/forum/252-malwarebytes-browser-guard/ or possibly https://forums.malwarebytes.com/forum/70-beta-testing-program/ if it's first offered for beta testing before release. Thank you.
  4. Hello @pbust: It appears as if a modification is required to further allow the download. Thank you.

  6. Hello @R3Kistic: A few of us still remember that IObit was unquestionably proven to be using Malwarebytes' intellectual Property and database data. Is that (then China based) particular company trustworthy now? In my own private and personal opinion, SERIOUSLY AND ABSOLUTELY NO!

  7. Hello @plaurits and I do not wish to belittle your computer in the least but with little doubt that probably near fourteen-year-old, $60.00USD computer is seriously resource starved. Ticking a threat scan's "Scan for rootkits" will always add significantly to total scan time. Please follow the advice given by @Porthos above or... Do not invest any new money in that rig. Do consider upgrading to something new or more recent where RAM can be around 16GB. I'm very surprised the capacitors on that motherboard haven't started manifesting ESR issues. Good luck and HTH.
  8. Hello @TToz and Perhaps the most common advice given is to quarantine those items discovered during threat scans, and allow the quarantined (and automatically encrypted) items to remain "as is" for a week, or so, at which time you will find the elimination of the that malware is most frequently warranted and the contents of the quarantine should be deleted. Also, if you have not already done so, you may wish to add the free Malwarebytes Browser Guard and consider running the free Malwarebytes AdwCleaner utility weekly for additional layered protections.

  9. Hello @Steve1982: Welcome back! Long ago, I too would have liked to read timely published hashes for downloads. Like you, the industry's ongoing concern for the highest achievable download integrity is shared by many professionals and consumers. But Malwarebytes still has obviously committed to the use of digital signing/counter signing supplemented with the X.509 certificate methodologies. If you would still prefer additional personal assurances and choose to compare with the still viable SHA cryptographic checksums, please reconsider the continued use of VirusTotal.com details rep
  10. Oy! Just as I was putting 4.9.6 Beta through long variants of low and high CPU settings it seems 4.9.7 Beta was pushed early yesterday which my MBP's settings allowed to install. 4.9.6 Beta would still aggravate my MBP11,3's CPU temperature during scans due to near saturated RTP Daemon task CPU%. I tried the CPU High setting for a short period. However, the elevated CPU temperature seemed dangerously high and returning the CPU setting to low seemed the best choice. Even if the push of 4.9.7 Beta has more to do with M1 code, it seems best to run 4.9.7 Beta at the low CPU setting ind
  11. Hello @leo3487: Please see if your forum membership level has access to the Malwarebytes Anti-Bundleware Scanner within the Incubation Lab sub-forum. If the above is not entirely successful, please consider sending a private message to @AlexSmith. Thank you.
