  1. No, Malwarebytes 4.0 will be an evolution, rather than a revolution or a convolution.
  2. You don't seem to get much feedback, I fear.
  3. Intel and Microsoft are now offering patches for Spectre for most of Intel's CPU's. I've created a little post to help you safeguard your PC. See here .
  4. As Malwarebytes itself is rather scarce with information about updates and changes of their Malwarebytes Extension for Firefox, I'm trying to collect those here .
  5. Come on. It's not your outrage, but your frustration. Don't make it bigger that it is.
  6. CCleaner v5.33.6162 for 32-bit Windows users was indeed compromised. See here. Malwarebytes detected this threat as Trojan.Floxif. The suspicious code was hidden in the application’s initialization code called CRT (Common Runtime) that is normally inserted during compilation by the compiler. This code modification was executed by the following function calls (functions marked by red represent the CRT modifications): The guys at Piriform have released a new version that has the malware removed. Simply download CCleaner v5.34.6207 and you're fine again. .
  7. All the good, reputable antivirus programs can work together with Malwarebytes.
  8. Malwarebytes is an antimalware program that focusses on malware (ransomware, bankers, exploits, RATs) and progressively gravitates to an antivirus program. That's because the world of threats is evolving constantly. Kaspersky is a traditional antivirus program that progressively gravitates to an antimalware program. That's because the world of threats is evolving constantly. But, as Rudyard Kipling once wrote 'Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet'.
  9. I see that some people do not entirely understand the issue of 'bloatware'. Bloatware is functionality that is simply added to make software more 'interesting'. Malwarebytes uses a modular approach, which means that ever evolving malware can lead to a new module to protect users. Some years ago ransomware didn't exist and to protect a user new ways of behavioural detection needed to be implemented. That meant a new module. Microsoft does the same only they call it key security enhancements such as kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (kASLR), kernel Data Execution Prevention (DEP), and virtualization-based security (VBS) capabilities delivered with Device Guard all contribute to breaking the exploit techniques observed in the wild.
