  12. Please let us know if 3.1 corrects the issue for you or not. Just in case, I went ahead and reported your discovery to the team so that they can also test and try to determine determine if Smartscreen in Edge might be causing problems with Web protection under certain conditions.

    Is it normal that my PC is so slow?

    It's likely the video card causing the low framerates. 3D games depend on 3 major factors, with 2 of them being the most impactful for performance: CPU - speed and (sometimes) number of cores (number of cores is only relevant if the game is multi-threaded to take advantage of a multi-core CPU) Graphics card - it's not just the amount of graphics memory, but also the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) type and speed that plays a major role in game performance - What brand/model of graphics card is in your PC? For example, is it an NVIDIA or AMD GPU or is it just the integrated Intel graphics chip built into the motherboard chipset/CPU? Amount of RAM (regular memory, not video memory) - This is the least significant factor, but for any resource intensive task, including games, it's important to have enough RAM. You can find out more about your hardware, including your graphics card by running CPU-Z: Download CPU-Z from here Install it and once it's done, click START>All Programs>CPUID>CPU-Z>CPU-Z and click Yes if prompted by User Account Control Once it launches it will quickly check your PC's hardware. Once it's ready and the main UI opens click on the small v arrow on the right side of the Tools button at the bottom and select Save Report as .HTML and save the file somewhere you'll be able to easily locate it such as your desktop or your documents folder Right-click on the file you just saved and hover your mouse over Send to and select Compressed (zipped) folder Attach the zip folder you just created to your next reply and I'll take a look and advise on the gaming capabilities of your system as best I can

    Having an issue with Windows start up

    Great, please keep us posted on how it goes. Hopefully they are familiar with it and have a fix for it.

    Covert Keylogger sold with HP's Laptops..

    Wow, that's just brilliant. So they built a keylogger for debugging purposes and really didn't realize that they'd basically created a typical piece of malware? And since it's not encrypted, it could be accessed by anyone with read access to the folder where it's kept, which could be very bad news indeed. At least it doesn't have the more advanced functionality of truly malicious keyloggers like screencapture and browser/website monitoring though, as that would be even worse (though this is already bad enough) since the keystrokes (i.e. passwords etc.) could then be associated with the sites they're used on. Still, any account numbers, credit card numbers and PII would be easy pickings. Scary stuff. Thanks for posting this. Hopefully HP deals with the issue swiftly and makes sure those files get deleted from their customers' drives as soon as possible (hopefully automatically as part of a patch pushed out to their systems).

    Do you test your software?

    We actually do a lot of testing and validation. While I don't know the precise details of the problem, it had something to do with our servers loading 0Kb files to our 64-bit Windows users. I have been told that they do understand why it happened and that they are taking measures to prevent it from happening again, although I don't know what measures those will be as it may be something that requires an update to the software or simply a change to some of the code used by our updating servers depending on where the problem actually occurred.
  17. You're welcome, please let us know if there's anything else we can help with. Thanks

    Quick thank you for the fast fix :¬)

    Greetings You're very welcome. We're just sorry that it happened at all and for any inconvenience it may have caused any of our customers and users. Rest assured we are taking measures to see to it that this issue does not occur again. Thanks for sticking through this with us and thank you for using Malwarebytes

    Non-malware attacks

    Unfortunately many Point Of Sale (POS) systems, bank ATMs and other machines used for financial transactions are still outdated. I see them all the time still running XP as mentioned above and I still see a few every once in a while still running Windows 2000. As for why all the noise, look at the majority of major AVs. The last time I checked, most don't have robust exploit detection/prevention technology. That's why you still see so many articles about exploits recommending MBAE/Malwarebytes 3 as well as EMET and HitmanPro.Alert because the exploit protection provided by most AVs just isn't cutting it. They still seem more concerned with detecting binaries and doing well on synthetic tests, which seldom ever test against live/in the wild exploits.
  20. Our most proactive protection components use no databases/signatures and remained functional throughout this incident. Our Exploit protection was actually the first component to stop the WanaCrypt0r attacks because it, like most ransomware (and most modern malware in general these days) uses/used exploits to attempt to download and execute the ransomware payload. Our Exploit protection stopped it in its tracks before it even had the chance to try to download any malware onto our customers' systems because the exploit is the first phase in the attack chain.
  21. Absolutely The most important components for preventing ransomware and most modern threats and 0-day attacks are Exploit protection and Ransomware protection, neither of which were affected by this issue.

    Web Protection won't turn on

    Yes, the issue has now been fixed. Thank you all for your patience with us while we worked out this problem.
  23. Yes, and most other threats as well due to the fact that the vast majority of infections (ransomware included) use exploits as the first phase of the attack chain when trying to infiltrate systems, and our exploit protection uses no signatures/databases so it remains on even when the databases aren't installed/working. It is our most proactive protection component because it relies on behavior to detect attacks, not file patterns. This also means that it cannot be fooled when the bad guys change how their malware looks by modifying the binaries/files because there are only a limited number of types of exploit attacks and we monitor for every one and in multiple levels to catch attacks before they get a chance to load malware onto the system (i.e. before they get that ransomware payload/executable onto the system to try to encrypt your files).
  24. Greetings No need to apologize at all. With the recent beta and all the threads about it, it can get confusing as to which is our latest release version. It is version 3.1.2 and you can get it right here. If you need anything else please let us know. Thanks
  25. The issue has been corrected. The majority of Malwarebytes 3 users with automatic updates enabled recovered from this situation automatically. In a small number of cases, a reboot or restart of the Malwarebytes service might be required to re-enable the protection modules. If you have any further issues, please create a new topic and one of our team members will assist you. For more information, head here: Thank you again for all your patience, we really appreciate it and thank you for using Malwarebytes.
