  1. Hello All, Just switched from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Succeed installing FL studio 20 under Playonlinux. Next program I really like to have on Linux is Malwarebytes (3.7.1). I keep getting the error message " Runtime error (at 433:375) Could not proc". Anyone have success installing Malwarebytes under playonlinux and or directly with wine?
  2. I'm using MX Linux 18.3, Google Chrome Version 77.0.3865.75, and Browser Guard Version 2.0.2 If I try to open this extension, Google Chrome closes (crashes).
  3. i have windows 7 dual installed with linux working just fine, and then i downloaded a torrent file with a codec pack exe file, and the video would'nt still work, so i uninstalled software from the uninstaller in windows, and i ran a adaware from malwarebytes, and then it cleaned it all up and then it restart, and wont boot up again, grub boot menu comes up and when i choose linux it starts, but when i choose windows it comes only blackscreen with this _/- its "-" or "_" just blinking, nothing happends after that been on for hours nothing, when control alt delete it reboots. no sign of windows boot logo or anything else. how can i fix this asap? thx in advance for everybit of information that might help :)) im currently logged into my linux.
  4. Hi I noticed that Malwarebytes breaks the Windows subsystem for Linux if I run "sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade". This is very annoying because I have to reinstall the whole WSL system every time this happens. dpkg is NOT malware, it is a package management tool in Ubuntu. Please see: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/dpkg.1.html Please see the attachment.
  5. Conventional wisdom suggests that Linux is immune from malware, hacks etc. but as it's popularity increases won't the gremlins start coming up with malicious code to attack it too? Is an anti virus utility even necessary for the Linux OS - and if so does MWB currently have or intends to develop a program for it? Currently running the ZORIN distro.
  6. Hello, Yesterday my computer was infected with what I think is a malware virus of some form. I downloaded a new program and shortly afterwards my computer began to act up and suddenly it dawned on me that my computer was infected. I have a startup menu which allows me to select between using Linux or Windows 7. The computer infection occurred on my Windows 7 operating system so I switched to Linux where it is relatively functional and I am able to access it unlike Windows 7 where I have to revert to safe mode just to access the operating system and cripple the virus. I immediately went onto YouTube to get this issue resolved and learned about Malwarebytes and realized that it is a viable solution to my problem. I learned how to go into safe mode on Windows 7, I learned how to access the internet despite the infection, and I attempted to download Malwarebytes but unfortunately the virus is preventing me from accessing it even if I'm in safe mode on Windows 7 so I went to another computer and used my thumb drive on another computer to install the program and then transfer it to my computer but that did not work as expected. I cannot install Malwarebytes on LInux either. I browsed the internet for all of the information I was able to seek until I learned about Chameleon which is intended to be used if my computer is infected and is preventing my from installing and using Malwarebytes to resolve the infection. Unfortunately, after I saved the file and attempted to begin using Chameleon I clicked every button to launch the black DOS command prompt but it never launched despite several attempts to do so. I don't know what to do at this point to remove the malware virus from my computer and it is clear that I am ignorant of a proper solution. I know that I cannot resolve this infection on my own and I require the assistance of experts immediately to resolve this very serious issue. I cannot do this on my own so I am turning to all of you here for help in my hour of darkness and desperation. Please help me, I have no one else to turn to. - Flux FRST.txt Addition.txt
  7. Hello team Malwarebytes Is there any predictability of the medium and long term terms a version of the excellent malwarebytes for Linux Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS? At the moment I tested several anti-malware and anti-virus, but none met my expectations in terms of functionality, practicality in installation, efficiency and user interaction. I thank you for your attention Serial.com
  8. I did a search for the forum and what came up appeared to be unrelated. I did find this: "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware does not currently support non-Windows OS platform, such as Apple devices or any forms of Linux." link I believe that was from January of this year. With Windows 10 being a privacy nightmare as well as using people's bandwidth and so forth I was thinking of, when a new computer will be purchased of getting Ubuntu as the OS. However MBAM is SUCH an outstanding system that I would very much feel UNprotected without it. If it is not available currently for Ubuntu is there any plans for the near future? Thank you. Patrick
  9. I just came across an article about Linux ransomware https://thehackernews.com/2015/11/linux-ransomware.html of course it only effects enterprise/servers, But it makes me think is it only a matter of time before they stat targeting Linux home users? I see that Malwarebytes is now available for Mac OS/Unix so hopefully this is a sign that Malwarebytes will be available for Linux down the road. Anyway back to what I was talking about I found a great Linux sandbox app called Firefjail http://sourceforge.net/projects/firejail/ I've been using it for about a year now and I don't quite feel secure without it and then there's JustBrowsing a live Arch based distro for surfing the web. Both help keep you secure online especially JustBrowsing http://sourceforge.net/projects/justbrowsing/files/ since it doesn't save anything what so ever. Please share your thought.
  10. Whats the state of Linux malware for home users but particularly for enterprise servers. I mean look at how many websites have been hit by Blackhat hackers over just the last few months and how many of those websites run on Linux or Free BSD even home users are at higher risk now, though still nothing compared to Windows home user malware infections so why aren't there more antimalware solutions for Linux would something like MBAM/MBAE help fend off all these exploits from happening so often to enterprise websites & perhaps assist Linux home users against malware exploits as well.

  12. Hi I would like to suggest, and before I get started I would like to apologize ahead of time if anyone else has made similar post to this in the past because I checked and I couldn't find anything really close to my suggestions. Now since malware continues to an ever growing problem for Android it would be fantastic if MBAM where available for Android OS even as a on-demand scanner it would be a great aid in the fight against infections on Android. Although there are some other great tools (available on Google Play store) such as VirusTotal & VirusTotal Uploader to help you determine if an app is safe or not. Now onto Linux, and yes I know malware really isn't much of a issue for it but how about those of us who daul boot or planning to being able to scan your Windows partition from a Linux environment could prove to be very useful especially when dealing with somthing like a rootket for example, and since the Linux version would only be needed as a on-demand scanner then a portable version would fit the bill just fine.
  13. Thanks for a moment of your time. I am in desperate need of your help. Desperate because my computer, a 64 bit Windows Home Premium OS, HP Pavillion has been made a client machine on an unknown network admin's domain. I have done a couple years worth of investigation...learning a lot as I proceed. And I have narrowed the Hack to the exploitation of my WIRED router-in this case a Netgear WNR1000v2, but the brand is irrelevant-using a script I found that contains a reference to a program called Dnsmasq and something called MICROSOFT WINDOWS RALLY PROGRAM among others which I will include at the bottom of this text. On Netgear utility app called Genie [which denies me permission to Wireless, ReadyShare and parental controls] I try to enter a password that control,using I get a message that says " The server at WebAdmin request a password which is not the standard PW or the one I created.. I logged on today using an ethernet cable from modem directly to my pc, but the the Netgear router [unplugged and disconnected] app called Genie indicates that I am passing through the router????????? I have lost control of my computer and have not yet been able to regain it due to a lack of knowledge regarding this open code written by someone else. Please help me understand how to remove this control from my PC. I would be so very grateful. . I tried to attach the wordpad doc that I copied from the Notepad Script but was unsuccesful. Contains many references to unknown programs.

  14. My name is Jacob Anderson, and I absolutely LOVE freewares. I'm a Windows freeware fanatic, a guy with no credit card but a nag for software that does many things for me. Malwarebytes and MSE are the two antivirus freewares I use in combination to protect my computers and my friends' computers. I love the idea of a free OS, too. I'm into using Ubuntu, and I have even got an 8 gig flash drive that I can boot Ubuntu up from on any computer that boots usb. Thanks to Linux's amazing hardware compatibility, drivers are RARELY an issue for booting from the flash drive for any computer! I'm posting because I think it would be one small step for me and a giant leap for Malwarebytes if they created a .deb installer for Linux that scans hard drives with Windows installed on them. The reason I'd like to do this is because I dealt with the Windows Pro Defense virus on one of my friends' computers. It was the worst spyware I'd ever seen! I had to rename the mbam.exe to something random lik jfkldssdl.exe just so it would run, and then every time the scan completed and I tried to remove the files the spyware caused Malwarebytes to stop responding. I had to use a portable task-manager freeware called Daphne Portable (Because Windows task-manager was not being allowed to run) to find the process, then find the executable. I couldn't delete it in windows so I took note of the file path booted from Ubuntu on my flash drive to delete the virus's executable file. Finally I booted, scanned, and cleaned off the mess left from the virus's war we had. I just think it would be amazing if we could boot up a free operating system (Linux) that was compatible with Malwarebytes and clean off these extremely clever and complex spywares like Windows Pro Defense. I don't know what kind of work it takes to make a stable version for Linux, but unfortunately it's just something that Linux Wine will never really handle. Linux and Malwarebytes working together would be an amazing freeware combination that will knock viruses and spyware off their feet before they know what's happening, and I'd be thrilled to see this happen sometime. Thank you everybody for your time and consideration! =)
