    Malwarebytes VS my last submit

    13 this time, eh? Yum~ If you ever break your record, let us know.

    Offline Loading MBAM - Home?

    Malwarebytes uses signature-less detection, so it doesn't need a lot of data to work with. The official Malwarebytes toolset offered to techshop specialists includes a portable version of the Malwarebytes scanner, which works wonders, and none of the tools provided by Malwarebytes actually require an internet connection to function. It is still recommended for complete functionality, but you can install Malwarebytes on a computer that's in complete networking lockdown an run it without issue.

    Let's just hope that it's good enough to fool sandbox-aware malware~ The fact Windows Defender can also run partially sandboxed now is pretty awesome as well.

    Transactional NTFS

    I just really hate seeing things like TxF and WinFS fizzle out and die. It is honestly depressing to see that much work go into something, and then it either gets completely unused (in the case of TxF) or outright cancelled (WinFS), often because it was ahead of its time in some fashion. I don't want TxF to go the way of WinFS, and that's why I want to see more things use it even if it would be seemingly redundant.

    Windows Sandbox

    My dad's an MSDN subscriber, though, and we already run Enterprise versions of Windows on most of our computers at home. But now that you mention the whole piracy thing, I guess it's better safe than sorry. Maybe I should just use Pro in that case.

    Windows Sandbox

    Maybe I'll install the 64-bit version of Windows 10 Enterprise when I finally get an SSD (a 500 gigabyte SSD is somehow only $80, and would be a huge improvement over the current 160 gigabyte hard disk), then I can work on backing up everything from the old installation. I do wish there was an automatic utility for restoring data and settings between Windows installations, even for different architectures, as long as you still had your old hard drive handy, but hey... You can't have everything. Since I have an external dock to plug hard drives in, everything should be alright.

    Windows Sandbox

    Unfortunately, NTVDM x64 has dependencies on leaked Windows NT source code that you need to obtain from elsewhere. As such, the only time I actually want NTVDM, I'm unable to use it on my Windows 7 machine... But when I was given this laptop, it still had a bunch of stuff on it with nowhere to back it up to, and the previous owner had mistakenly installed the 32-bit of Windows 10 on it. And Microsoft, in all their infinite wisdom, made it impossible to upgrade from 32-bit Windows to 64-bit without doing the equivalent of a Reformat and Reinstall.
  8. So, I was using the Intel Detection and Mitigation Tool on my Latitude E6510 (running Windows 10 Pro, 1809 32-Bit), and I got the following results: Any suggestions for dealing with this? Alternatively, anyone got their own results to share? The tool can be downloaded here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26755

    Windows Sandbox

    Drat, another really helpful feature with no 32-bit support... I really wish there was an easier way to migrate from 32-bit installations to 64-bit without losing anything, barring the obvious caveat of having to get fresh drivers.

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    Thanks, I'll give that a try as soon as possible.

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    Weird... it says it will work on 32-bit Windows 7, but only 64-bit Windows 10. Maybe the default settings in 32-bit Windows 10 prevent it from working correctly? I'm going to see if it runs, but if it doesn't, I'm not sure what to try next.

    Scanning Synchronized iOS Devces

    I have come to realize that something like this might also be a beneficial feature to iDevice owners using the Windows-based version of Malwarebytes, but the macOS version would still probably be a much more viable recipient for such a feature.

    Scanning Synchronized iOS Devces

    Even though Malwarebytes for iOS cannot scan for malicious software of any form because of Sandboxing and the like, combined with a lack of interest in such functionality due to the rarity of iOS-targeting Malware, would scanning synchronized iDevices be a viable workaround? It might even be able prevent those devices from being used as carriers to transfer malicious software between synchronized computers without the user's knowledge, such as in the event one of the computers in question doesn't have protection.
  14. So I recently read about something interesting, called the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, which is an open platform for allowing multiple third-party security providers to work together intelligently and the like. I'd suggest giving the page a read. https://www.mcafee.com/enterprise/en-us/products/epolicy-orchestrator.html So, does anyone think it's worth adding Malwarebytes to this?

    McAfee ePO (ePolicy Orchestrator) Partnership

    I forgot, because I'm an idiot sometimes. I kept thinking of OPSWAT instead... >.<

    Transactional NTFS

    I mean when doing things like trying to restore a maliciously altered file to its original state, trying to correct issues with the registry, having a fallback in the event of false positives, verifying updated components during installation, updating logs, sanitizing and/or immunizing files, etc. If I do come up with something more immediately useful however, I'll make a note of it, but somebody else might figure out that use before I do. Malwarebytes was just one of many examples though, and there are lots of other things that could probably benefit from using TxF. As I said before, Microsoft Office is an example of a program that would hugely benefit from TxF, and the same with any program that stores settings in either an INI file or an XML file.

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    Says it's for 64-Bit. Currently looking for the 32-Bit version...

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    So... how do I provision it?

    Transactional NTFS

    Still trying to think of ways that Malwarebytes could hypothetically make use of TxF besides basic data loss prevention during remediation steps... Drawing up blanks at the moment though.

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    Finally got the final one installed... A17. Can't wait to play around with the new BIOS settings. I'll also attach my new detection results screenshot in a bit. Thank you!
  21. Amaroq_Starwind

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    Okay, I got A10 installed, but now A17 is saying that I need A11. I'm not seeing that on the downloads page.

    Not impressed with Malwarebytes.

    Malwarebytes is great, but it isn't perfect. It honestly cannot get everything, but there's a reason it is designed to work either existing Anti-Virus software. It's not a true replacement. The truth is, nothing can be 100% effective on its own without a catch, such as having to resort to the nuclear option of running a HIPS. So rather than blaming Malwarebytes and calling it a defective product, try to work with the community to resolve the situation and help it detect threats such as this in the future. Now, it is highly recommended that you run the Malwarebytes support tool and install the latest updates, as well as the latest updates for any other security software you may have installed.

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    Thanks. A09 installed successfully, but A10 and A17 keep throwing up errors about not being able to deliver the payload, or something like that. And then the screen went completely black after an Apple software update attempted to install, and I was forced to perform a hard reboot. Still waiting for the computer to come back to life...
  24. Amaroq_Starwind

    Intel Processor Detection and Mitigation Results

    It says I need to install A09 before A010.

    Darling (aka 'Darwin on Linux')

    So, I'm sure a lot of folks here have become familiar with Wine by now, but has anyone here heard of Darling? https://www.darlinghq.org/introduction/ I just learned of it recently, myself. While similar to Wine, it's a lot younger and has a different goal, being a macOS compatibility layer instead of a Windows compatibility layer. I wonder how well it will go... I have held an interest in projects such as Wine, DOSBOX, AROS and WinKVM for a long time, and I can't wait to add Darling to that list.
