  1. Yes, if you can run Malwarebytes for Mac 3.0, you should. Note that it is still free. When the trial ends, you can continue to use all the same functionality you've always had (ie, manual scanning and removal of detected threats).
  2. Is Malwarebytes 3.03 for the Mac free?

    Yup, and just to be clear, nothing needs to be done to "revert"... the program continues working normally, only without the Real-Time Protection feature. Manual scanning and removal of detected threats will always be free.
  3. We're actually already there. We're continuing to support both signature files at present, and the day when we cut off 1.x is not coming any time soon... but it will happen eventually.

    If you choose the manual approach, just be careful about what .plist files you remove. You should only remove them from LaunchAgents or LaunchDaemons folders, and should be aware that removing the wrong .plist files could disable or damage legitimate software. Sometimes it can be difficult to know which ones are legitimate and which ones aren't, and I've seen people trash their systems with manual removal attempts.
  5. Chill Tab Malware

    Can you clarify what the problem is that you're seeing? Are you seeing repeated attempts to install this extension? Do you actually have the Chill-Tab extension installed? Or is it something else?
  6. Thor AntiVirus is actually a scam app, as are many of the similar apps in the Mac App Store. Thor AntiVirus does not detect Mac threats, as you'll see from this video:
  7. HighSierra Version

    We will be adding web protection in the future, but I can't give a specific timeframe. It will probably be next year sometime, but we can't promise that. As for specific aspects of the scanning of the Windows engine, not all of those make sense on the Mac, so don't expect to ever see complete feature parity there. After all, to give just one example, there is no registry on the Mac, so scanning the registry isn't even a possibility on the Mac. Our scanning solutions are tailored to the platform and the nature of the threats on that platform.
  8. High Sierra

    On the first item, that's something we will be addressing in a future release. The second two are entirely normal at this time.
  9. Try this: Do a manual scan with Malwarebytes and remove anything detected In the Malwarebytes app, click the Quarantine tab, then click the Clear Quarantine button Restart your computer Let me know if that doesn't fix it.
  10. Background Service is Offline

    Yes, I posted the solution on August 31, on the first page of this topic. However, I'll add some updated instructions here: This problem is caused by a system keychain that has been inappropriately restricted at a level that even the system itself can't change it. We're still unsure what causes this, but initial data seems to indicate that migrating data from an older Mac or a Time Machine backup may be a possible cause. This will cause other problems with your system as well, such as an inability to store new wifi passwords. To fix this problem, restart in recovery mode, by holding down command-R at startup. Once you're in recovery mode, go to the Utilities menu and choose Terminal. See the following screenshot: In the Terminal window that opens, enter the following command. Be sure to enter it precisely as shown. chflags norestricted /Volumes/*/Library/Keychains/* Press return to execute the command. If you see an error message saying something like "No such file or directory" or "command not found," you made an error in typing the command. Review these instructions again and be sure you're entering it exactly as shown. Now restart the computer normally, and Malwarebytes should be working normally.

  14. Chill Tab Malware

    Actually, the confusing thing to me is that I've only ever seen one particular VSearch variant installing Chill-Tab, and Malwarebytes has been detecting it for a while now. Even on this thread, it's always the same file installed: macsearch.plist. So I'm not sure where the difficulty lies with removing it.
  15. Chill Tab Malware

    Do not use Adware Doctor! I'm not sure which of the three Adware Doctor apps that are on the Mac App Store you're referring to, but it really doesn't matter... they're all junk apps.
