  1. Greetings,

    The latest version for Android is currently which was released on December 13th of last year according to the release history listed on the right side of the main Malwarebytes for Android support page found here so as long as that is the version you have installed, then that should be the latest.  Malwarebytes has separate Developers, Product teams and Researchers that work on their various products for various platforms independently, and while they do generally maintain certain standards across their entire product portfolio (such as common components like licensing, UI/UX, icons, colors/branding etc.), the individual technologies within each product/platform differ to provide the best protection targeted at each individual platform and the types of threats faced by users of that platform.

    You can keep an eye on that page for news about new releases or check back on the forums here in our Malwarebytes for Android support area for announcements about new releases if you wish, or of course you can just let the product update itself automatically after a new version is released.

    I hope this helps, and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.


  2. You're welcome, I'm glad I could help.  As long as you set up exclusions between the two programs you shouldn't have any further issues, however if you have trouble getting any future new versions or updates of Malwarebytes to install, you'll know why and you should be able to work around the issue the same way.

    If there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.


  3. Greetings,

    Your logs show that you have 360 Total Security installed.  This application is known to prevent Malwarebytes from installing.  Please remove it temporarily and then install Malwarebytes, then you should be able to reinstall it and create exclusions between the two products to get them to work alongside each other.  For Malwarebytes, exclude the items listed in this support article from 360 Total Security and exclude 360 Total Security's program folder (likely under C:\Program Files and/or C:\Program Files (x86)) from Malwarebytes following the instructions under the Allow a file or folder section of this support article and do the same for its primary data folder, likely located under C:\ProgramData.

    If you still have trouble then it could be due to AVG.  In fact, you really should just use one or the other, not both, so I would recommend removing either 360 Total Security or AVG AV from the system permanently otherwise you may have issues.

    Please let us know how it goes and if the problem still persists.


  4. Greetings,

    DDoS stands for distributed denial-of-service attack and is different from the issues you describe.  It sounds like the VPN was simply gathering telemetry/customer data similar to what other companies such as Microsoft and Google do when using their products and services.

    If you are concerned about your privacy, I would recommend taking a look at the information provided in this topic.

    I hope this helps and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.


  5. Yes, it must be conflicting then unfortunately.  Web Protection in Malwarebytes uses WFP; the same API's and framework as the built in Windows Firewall.  It sounds like something about how Web Protection is filtering is interfering with the Split-Tunneling feature.

    If you would, please do the following so that we may gather data about the issue for the Developers and for further troubleshooting purposes:

    1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
    2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced tab on the left (not Start Repair)
    3. Click the Gather Logs button, and once it completes, attach the zip file it creates on your desktop to your next reply

    Wouldn't of made an account and this post if excluding it was functioning correctly.  The whole point of this point is literally that it's NOT excluding it, even with being allowed. 


    On top of that, Mbam doesn't even say it's detected or prevented any modifications or tampering. 

    You stated in your post that you excluded from detection and as potentially unwanted; the exclusions for Web Protection are completely separate and must be created individually/separate from exclusions from other modules/components.  Your initial post never mentioned that you created exclusions from Web Protection using the Allow an application to connect to the internet which is why I instructed you to do so; that is the only way to exclude an application from Web Protection.  If you already did so, good, however if you did then it can't be Web Protection blocking it unless it is some sort of driver conflict as Malwarebytes allows all communications to/from any process excluded that way.

  7. FYI for anyone who has chosen to abandon Windows 7 for Windows 10.  Apparently Windows 10 suffers from a new critical vulnerability that impacts digital signature validation and cryptography (the tech that allows you to validate the source of a file and the tech that keeps your communications encrypted/safe from snoopers).

    According to Microsoft, neither Windows 7 or 8/8.1 are affected.

    Remember what I was saying about 7 being inherently more secure than 10, regardless of patches ;)?

    I kid, but it does make you wonder; why does such a weakness exist in Microsoft's new code, and why aren't earlier Windows versions affected?  I wonder what they might have changed to result in this vulnerability existing in 10 and the latest versions of Windows Server.

  8. Greetings,

    I suspect that it is probably being caused by the fast startup feature in Windows.  It has been known to cause this and other issues with Malwarebytes and other applications due to the way it retains some processes in memory while shutting down others normally.  This 'hybrid' approach to system startup causes the Malwarebytes tray and service to go out of sync resulting in the issue you are experiencing it, and since fast startup doesn't apply to system restarts, only shutdowns, that explains why performing a system restart resolves it for you.

    If you would prefer to eliminate this issue permanently as well as avoid any other potential problems that might be caused by the fast startup feature then you may disable it by following the instructions found here as well as here.

    Please let us know how it goes and if there is anything else we might assist you with.


  9. Greetings,

    According to the info I could gather on Malwarebytes for Mac, it doesn't appear to include the Web Protection component in the Windows version; it only has app blocking and anti-malware (i.e. no web filtering/malicious website blocking), so if it is the same for the business product then the IP test page won't be blocked by Macs.

    If anyone from the staff knows better then they are free to correct me, however I believe this is how it is.
