  1. CCLeaner hack

    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. .
  2. Which free AV work with MBAM 3.x?

    All the good, reputable antivirus programs can work together with Malwarebytes.
  3. 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'.
  4. How about a ver. 3.x without the bloatware?

    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.
  5. Malwarebytes 3.0.4 beta

    No. I'm faithfully following the betas.
  6. Initially had the problem that this new beta wouldn't install 'over the top'. Got several warnings that the program couldn't access files to remove (or overwrite). Had to cancel the update and use the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Complete Cleanup Tool. Yes, I do know that this program isn't yet ready for use in betas, but the problems were gone anyway. Then I could install version the new beta without any problem. Time to scan 11:23 - Items scanned 100,124 (don't know if it's quick enough).
  7. Error: Unable to connect the Service

    Sorry to barge into this topic, but I had the same problem: Unable to connect to service. What I did to resolve this problem was to remove (probably) both the remnants of the previous version and Malwarebytes Beta 3.0.2 via Malwarebytes Clean Uninstall Tool (download here). While I do know that this program isn't designed or adapted to remove a beta, it did remove some stuff that made it possible to do a clean install of Malwarebytes Beta 3.0.2. I now works perfectly.
  8. suggestion - stop scripts from running

    But maybe you can stop scripts from running if you tried to run them in specific situations, like trying to run/open them in your mail or if you try to run/open them manually?
  9. JavaRa (a program coded by Shane Gowland after an idea by me) is not actively updated anymore since the release Java's own Uninstall Tool. See here.
  10. Just updated Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware to version 8 beta on my fully updated Windows 10 machine. - Removed Anti-Ransomware 7 Beta - Installed Anti-Ransomware 8 Beta - Program works flawlessly.
  11. Ransomware Beta Protection Stopped Working

    Same here. See screenshot.
