  1. You cannot send it from MBAM quarantine as it is encrypted (or it is supposed to be). You need to restore it first, submit it and quarantine it again.
  2. Well then, if "there isn't a category of existing threat known that Malwarebytes is incapable of targeting ???" , Malwarebytes should be very successful in participating in AV Comparatives or AV Test. Up to that time is only your world , as Malwarebytes employee.
  3. "Can I replace my antivirus with Malwarebytes for personal use?" Mr. David H. Lipman provided a comprehensive answer to this question here: In a nutshell , the answer is NO, MALWAREBYTES CANNOT REPLACE AN ANTIVIRUS MBAM is incapable of dealing with File Infecting Viruses MBAM is incapable or removing malicious code that has been prepended, appended or cavity injected into a legitimate file MBAM does not target script malware files via signatures MBAM is not a historical anti malware solution. So exile360, what is so difficult to understand????
  4. If you are asking this question, my advice: stay with Avast! free
  5. I tried again with "AntiTest.exe" from Spyshelter. "AntiTest.exe" is not detected by MSE as malicious but it is detected by MBAM. Tested on 3 different PC , 2 of them without firewall ; triggered MBAM detection 10 times but NO DOT popped up on the map. I cannot provide logs as I am concerned about privacy (hence blocking all telemetry in normal operation) However, this is easy to reproduce by anybody , so if you will try it and get a dot on the map, I am OK. So far, the only conclusion is, that the map has nothing to do with reality. But I may be wrong (wouldn't be the first time!)
  6. In my situation, telemetry was blocked at firewall level; as I said, disabled the firewall prior the test That is funny explanation why you blocked telemetry....I am quite sure the servers can handle millions of transaction , so data from your house will not "flood" them .
  7. Hello, Another user posted a question which disappeared meanwhile... "How to test "Malwarebytes remediation map"" So, I tried to reproduced what the OP posted and I did not get any reaction on the "Remediation Map" I was able to zoom on the map the area I live in (no detection) Now, I disabled my antivirus and my firewall and unzipped a malware and scan it with MBAM. Sure enough, MBAM detected it and I quarantined. Repeated several times. NOT A DOT POPPED UP ON THE MAP. So, how does it work??? On some other forum somebody posted a funny map:
  8. I do not have any vendeta, in fact I have 5 lifetime licenses (using 3 now) All I want to do is to help users to understand where MBAM fits in a layered approach in security and I share my own experience, nothing else. Again from my own experience , using MBAM on top of a well known antivirus is a waste of money and PC resources. Till MBAM will get tested somehow by a third party , I maintain this statement. Sorry if this doesn't fit on whatever you believe...
  9. From AV Comparatives: "The Whole-Product Dynamic “Real-World” Protection test is a joint project of AV-Comparatives and the University of Innsbruck’s Faculty of Computer Science and Quality Engineering. It is partially funded by the Republic of Austria. The methodology of our Real-World Protection Test has received the following awards and certifications, including: Constantinus Award– given by the Austrian government Cluster Award – given by the Standortagentur Tirol – Tyrolean government eAward – given by report.at (Magazine for Computer Science) and the Office of the Federal Chancellor Innovationspreis IT – “Best Of”– given by Initiative Mittelstand Germany" I am rather inclined to believe them ... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now from AV Test: Clearly says "Protection against 0-day malware........100% So what a you blabbering about?????
  10. You do realize that this is just pure advertising, do you? Avast!, Avira, Bitdefender, kaspersky (even MSE) constantly score 100% in AV Comparatives or AV test, so is very unlikely that there is something left for MBAM to detect. Now, a common sense question : if MBAM is SO GOOD, better than most antiviruses, why not participate in AV Test /AV comparative to prove the fact??? A self supplied video is not a proof of anything.
  11. All the answers provided above are about "what Malwarebytes is supposed to do." If you are running Malwarebytes together with a well known antivirus (including MSE/Defender), all the work will be done by the said antivirus and nothing will be left for Malwarebytes to detect. In over 3 years of using Malwarebytes with an antivirus on 3 computers (mostly MSE, BitDefender, ESET) , I never had ONCE a detection initiated by Malwarebytes before my antivirus. So, in a nutshell, using MBAM on top of your antivirus is like having a second car insurance on top of another car insurance... For that reason, MBAM is slowly transforming from a "second layer of defense" (see version 1.75) in a fully flagged antivirus by adding different modules (by purchasing them rater than in house development). By purchasing Windows Firewall Control from Binisoft, now MBAM has almost everything it needs to be a standalone antivirus and I can bet that in less than 1 year this will happen. My 2 cents....

    Firewall Rules

    If the process to make sure is accurate and acceptable is so laborious, how come NOBODY involved in this process noticed the missing hot potato, "telemetry" exile360, you seem a nice knowledgeable guy, but statements like this just add insult to injury...

    Firewall Rules

    my firewall did not detect any attempt to connect to www.malwarebytes.com:443 , so my best guess is that the member of support tried to "substitute" telemetry.malwarebytes.com:443 with www.malwarebytes.com:443 for evident reasons. The revision would take 1 minute, yet nothing changed. I really do not understand why we need 3 pages on this forum , only to find out what /where /how Malwarebytes sends data from our PCs to outside world.

    Firewall Rules

    When the "support article" says the the connection to " www.malwarebytes.com:443 " is " used to verify connectivity to the Malwarebytes servers " and In reality the connection is to "telemetry.malwarebytes.com:443" and is used for telemetry...... the trust is dead.

    Read this topic : and see what Malwarebytes is sending over the internet , one way or another: look how a firewall populated with rules is:
