  1. I decided to try this experimental MBAE build linked here out of curiosity, but it didn't took me long to discover why it wasn't announced here, it crashes Command prompt no matter what shields or protection settings I disable. Reverting to MBAE built into Malwarebytes premium makes issue go away.
  2. Recently I have gotten a warning when using Chrome Canary that MBAE is an incompatible application. I am using the beta version of MBAE. Canary is an omen of what normal Chrome will become. So far my standard version of Chrome does not show the same warning, but eventually it will. I posted this problem on the Chromium Bug Log and was linked to this page: https://blog.chromium.org/2017/11/reducing-chrome-crashes-caused-by-third.html An excerpt from the page, "in September 2018, Chrome 69 will begin blocking third-party software from injecting into Chrome processes. If this blocking prevents Chrome from starting, Chrome will restart and allow the injection, but also show a warning that guides the user to remove the software. Finally, in January 2019, Chrome 72 will remove this accommodation and always block code injection." Which by my interpretation means that after Jan. 2019, MBAE will no longer work with Chrome. Am I wrong in assuming that paid Malwarebytes will have the same problem. Here's a couple of pics of the present warning in Canary.
  3. I'm not getting an answer on this in the MBAE forum. MBAR seems like it's most responsible for me seeing the TMP files. What's that about? MBAE and MBAR, Access Denied, visible TMP files - Anti-Exploit Beta - Malwarebytes Forums . . . https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214152-mbae-and-mbar-access-denied-visible-tmp-files/
  4. I'm trying both of these: MBAE and MBAR I see that they don't auto-update. How often do they update? MBAE gives you the version number in the file name, but not MBAR. Any idea why? That's useful to know. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - MBAE . . . mbae-setup- . . . mbae-setup- MBAR mbarw-setup-consumer- . . . mbarw-setup-consumer- . . .
  5. so … essentially, upgrading to mb3 (free) version means we no longer can use mbae and mbarw … do i understand this correctly? ref: forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/191650-malwarebytes-3-frequently-asked-questions/?do=findComment&comment=1077436
  6. Steps to reproduce: - Using either MBAE 1.10 beta or MBAM 3.2 beta, enable all mitigations in Advanced Settings; Don't know if MBAM 3.1.2 is affected. - Update Firefox to 55.0 if it's not already; - Visit any website then press the home button. Only the address bar gets updated, the web page you where on remains on display until you visit other website or mash the home button a few times. This doesn't happen with default settings and it doesn't happen at all with Firefox 54.0.1. I am running Windows 10 Version 1703 (15063.502). Attached a video with issue in action. 2017-08-08 18-30-41.mov
  7. I have just updated windows 10 to version 1703 Creator. Since then every time the PC starts up, after about 6 minutes I get a message stating Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is taking to long to start and telling me to restart the PC. I also get this message if I try and open MBAE manually. The program version is
  8. System: Windows 8.1 Professional, 64-bit OS MB version (licensed):, Component package: 1.0.117, Update package: The MB 3.1.1 had been installed over the previous version 3.0.6 couple of days ego. The exploit protection worked just fine, until now. Manually starting results in quickly going back to "Off" position. mb-checkResult 05.07.17.txt logs_05.07.16.zip
  9. If I elect to use the free version of MalwareBytes 3.x rather than pay for the Premium version, the anti-exploit feature goes away at the end of the trial period. If I run mbae-setup- (which I still have), will that installation of Anti-Exploit be compatible with the free version of MalwareBytes 3.x? If not, is there a download available for MBAM 2.x (free) so that I can re-install that and then install mbae?
  10. For the past week or so, MBAE has randomly shown a warning message about an exploit attempt, and then closed Firefox. When I start up Firefox again, sometimes the warning and closure will repeat immediately, but other times everything functions normally. Occasionally, I will get the warning message as I am *closing* Firefox. There doesn't appear to be any specific action on my part or on Firefox's to cause the warning and closure; sometimes it occurs without any action at all. If I stop MBAE's protection, Firefox works without any problem. I suppose this could be an actual warning of a blocked exploit attempt, but it happens too frequently (and on more than one network) for me to believe that the warnings are not false positives. Here are my vital statistics: I'm on a Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series with an 4th gen Intel i7 chip and 8 gigs of RAM under Windows 7 Pro. I am using MBAE and Firefox 34.0; a zipped copy of the entire MBAE logs directory folder is attached. applications.zip
  11. Is it advisable to install the latest version of the old standalone MBAE, in light of the fact that the anti exploit protection included in MB3 is only available for paid versions?
  12. I added a "custom" ant-exploit entry and then discovered that the Edit & Delete functions under Settings/Protection/Manage Protected Applications are non-functional (grayed-out). Even the custom application I added may not be deleted. I also observed that cycling the Exploit Protection button on-off-on causes the application entries under Manage Protected Applications to duplicate (see graphic) with each cycle. Apparently, this is corrected by cycling MBAM off and back on.
  13. 1. Malwarebytes 3.0 premium/trial and beta stand-alone protection agents Let's consider this scenario. We have a user that uses Malwarebytes 3.0 premium or trial but he/she also wants to beta test at least 1 stand-alone protection agent. While there is no reason to do this at this monent considering this timeline: <table border='1'> <tr> <th>Stand-alone protection agent - latest public beta</th> <th>Announce date</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware v.</th> <th>September 6</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit v1.9.1.1280</th> <th>December 5</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Malwarebytes 3.0</th> <th>December 8</th> </tr> </table> this issue will definitely come into play later on. At this moment it is safe to assume that Malwarebytes 3.0 includes these agents functionalities as it is implemented in their latest versions outlined in this table, but this is meant to change. I theoretically see only one way for this - disable the real time protection layer in Malwarebytes 3.0 that the user intends to substitute with the beta agent implementation. While this looks like a neat workaround it has some problems: -Malwarebytes 3.0 will keep bragging that one or more protection layers are disabled; -I didn't test this, there could be conflicts - most likely device drivers overlaps and is unsupported. Updated: made a check with Autoruns and definitely there will be drivers overlaps (mbae64.sys and farflt.sys).

Late alert about protection disabled during database update This known issue is pretty annoying considering that nobody mentioned the fact that this alert which comes late informing about an event that has already expired also steals input focus. Most comprehensive thread: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/191921-not-fully-protected/ 3. The dashboard doesn't mention database version and most importantly last definition update The dashboard only mentions if databases are current. Although I can lookup database version in Settings - About, the time of last definition update can only be looked up from logs: %ProgramData%\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\dbupdate.log This needs improvement. 4. Reports panel needs some organising per days. It will quickly get cluttered.
  14. I have used MBAM with MBAE before. And every application I open I get a popup from MBAE that it really protects my applications I use. I installed MBAM 3.0 and can't find any popups about that the application is protected by MBAE. I really want this back. Now I'm unsure if MBAE works at all.
  15. Up until today, we were running both Forcepoint's Endpoint DLP agent and MBAE without issues. Today the update of MBAE from to version caused a massive influx of false positives for: Exploit code executing from Heap memory blocked BLOCK Exploit payload file blocked BLOCK C:\Windows\System32\QIPCAP64.dll I have read about issues earlier this year with Websense's endpoint agent, but we did not have any issues prior today. As of right now, MBAE is disabled across the network.
  16. Hi, I would like to suggest that the SlimJet browser be added to the MalwareBytes Anti Exploit free protection. In light of the fact that many browsers are already included in the free version (see attachment for list), and not just the few top web browsers, I think this Chromium based browser should be among those as well. Thank you for considering my suggestion.
  17. This morning I received an anti-exploit alert with "File/Process Blocked" and "Attacking URL" both saying "N/A." Specifically, the alert says it's "Internet Explorer (and add-ons)," Protection Layer: "Application Hardening," and Protection Technique: "Exploit blocked by Anti-HeapSpray Enforcement". I would like to know the root cause, as I have not recently updated any software on the computer (at least knowingly) and was running standard tests mostly against internal (intranet) sites, so I am posting my MBAE logs as recommended. Thanks in advance for your help. Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.zip
  18. As others have experienced, I ran into the issue with Microsoft Edge failing to launch with MBAE running with Build 14936. Uninstalling MBAE, deleting the Program Data folder did not help. With numerous reports in Feedback Hub (including mine), I let it ride since I was not about to disable MBAE and a Microsoft Engineer had responded that the issue was being investigated. Fast forward to new Build 14942 installed 07Oct2016. The same issue with MBAE continued. I reported it both in Feedback Hub and Tweeted (https://twitter.com/SecurityGarden/status/784529397101498368) which resulted in a request for a bug report, which I submitted here: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/9256746/. (WER report attached) This morning I noticed I could not access Outlook.com from this machine but had no problem accessing other sites or Outlook.com on my laptop which is running Windows 10 Anniversary Update. After clearing cache/cookies, I decided to restart. In addition to the normal restart option, there was the option to restart and install updates. Going to Windows Update, it showed that a restart was needed to complete the install of Build 14942. I went ahead with the restart/install option and after a couple attempts, the system was rolled back to Build 14936. After that completed, again Build 14942 was ready to install. After it failed, this time it showed the new BSOD QR Code and indicated mwac.sys. I quickly changed to the Slow Insider Preview ring to prevent the reinstall/rollback loop and located the memory.dmp. Hoping both the WER report and Memory.dmp help the developers. Note: Both Rootkit scan and Enable self-protection module are UNchecked. MEMORY.DMP.zip Report.zip
  19. When I try to download a legitimate PDF file from the Microsoft Publications site, using the inbuilt PDF reader, as soon as I click the download button to invoke the actual Adobe Reader (to handle the download hand-off and read for proper save dialogue) I get a ROP error from MBAE and Chrome is forced to exit with a crash. Please advise. MBAE User folder attached. MWB_AE_USER_FOLDER.zip
  20. I just did the MBAE test and the "normal" button does have the calculator pop up. The "exploit" button does nothing. I am running the Free version but was under the impression that this should still work. What can I do about this to make sure I'm really being protected. I LOVE Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and have had a lifetime license for years!! Wish something like that was offered for the paid version. Will the free version really work???
  21. Hello, I know that many people are having problems after downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on Windows 10 computers. You will try to run the program and it will give you an error message. If you're savvy enough to go into task manager, the process will be there but nothing will happen. This error could be due to a corrupt file when downloading the program, it could be due to an antivirus conflict, or it may have been due to encrypting the hard drive with bitlocker or truecrypt. Here is how to fix this: Go to your command prompt. (windows key, type 'cmd' , ctrl +shift +enter) - or Right click on 'command prompt' and select 'run as administrator' Type in 'cd' and then the location of the malware bytes file (it's usually under program files). For example: cd c:\program files (86x)\malwarebytes anti-exploit\ Type 'mbae-svc -install' after the extension. For example: c:\program files (86x)\malwarebytes anti-exploit\mbae-svc -install\ This should start working immediately. I was frustrated that a program I paid for was not working so I took a few minutes to play around with it. You're Welcome. -Lando.
  22. I was using the MBAE test file to test if MBAE was working properly on my computer. It did but then i just renamed the file to test.exe and it no longer worked. I wonder why this is. https://gyazo.com/6fe280aa5014c54e2679efc94b42cfff https://gyazo.com/1055b7ff4e1146b91da1b7472a85ec10
  23. My license won't activate Moderator's note: I removed the image because it showed your license. We don't want that posted on the forums.
