  1. Thanks for the response. How odd that there isn't a similar extension for Safari...
  2. What does Malwarebytes for Mac do, if anything, to protect against phishing? As we all know, that is the main threat vector and I want to put something on my mother's Macbook to protect her against some of the more clever phishing attempts as she is not very technically inclined. I didn't see anything on the product page that specifically referenced phishing protection...
  3. Flash scan and Full scan ran successfully after applying the MS patch and rebooting. Now I'm trying to troubleshoot why Symantec is giving me issues even after applying all their Live Updates...
  4. I'm running MBAE & MBAM as well as Symantec on my Windows 10 machine. about 20 minutes after manually performing a Live Update in Symantec, Windows update downloaded the patch (KB4056892). I'm worried though...if Symantec's Live Update edits the registry key as referenced in Microsoft's advisory thereby signalling to Windows Update that it's okay to install the patch, my concern is that my other AV product (Malwarebytes) isn't necessarily compatible with the patch. Symantec tweaked the registry key to install the patch without consideration of Malwarebytes... I'll reboot and perform a full MB scan of my machine and report back.
  5. I just checked Symantec's website and they're weirdly silent on the matter as well. My guess is that the AV vendors have been asked to stay mum on the issue until everything gets sorted...
  6. Apologies if Malwarebytes has already issued a statement regarding the CPU security vulnerability announced this week but I couldn't find anything on your website or Twitter page. Microsoft announced that their patch is only being released via Windows Update for systems that are running compatible anti-virus products (or no AV product) as the patch can lead to instability for machines running a small number of anti-virus products on the market. I am running Windows 10 and have not seen a patch come down for my machine via Windows Update so I am assuming Malwarebytes is not confirmed to work with Microsoft's patch. Is that accurate? If so, when do you anticipate being able to confirm with Microsoft that your product works with the MS patch? An advisory page on your site for this would be helpful...I may have overlooked it.
