Reproducible: yes Scope: all users using MBAM 2.x or 3.1.2 OS: Windows 10, 64bit, all releases and editions* *haven't tested older OS yet. As decribed in ticket 2148930 Malwarebytes 3.1.2 aswell as Malwarebytes 2.x will no longer receive application updates. When searching for updates the application does never announce that a new version has been released (for manual download > 2.x users) and it will not update automatically (3.1.2 users). Thus users may assume their version is up-to-date while it is not. They cannot rely on the products automated / manual update procedure. There is no AV application that is causing the issue. Apparently the link to the download file / server in the application (3.1.2) is broken. I reported this issue back in May 2017 but till today the issues are not solved.
Hi, I appreciate all of the comments and replies regarding these issues. This is my first post. I must have some sort of malware or spyware still on my computer as I still cannot turn on my Automatic Updates. Originally when I ran my ESET and Malware Bytes the following showed up: Hijack.start menu, Hijack,exe file, Trojan.exe shell., and PUM.disabled. I thought these had been taken care (i.e removed or quarantined) by both programs. I ran both scans again (Eset and Malware Bytes)and they showed no infections, but I still could not turn on Automatic Updates. I followed your advice and purchased the PRO version of Malware Bytes and ran the scan. Again, nothing showed as being infected. I went to the next stage you advised, and ran the dds.scr and I have attached the two logs. I will track this and await your reply. By the way, please settle an argument between my boss and myself. He claims that automatic updates should ALWAYS be turned OFF anyway as it only downloads viruses onto your computer. I claim that is a bunch of hooey and that it should be turned ON always as it is important to get important security patches and updates. Who wins this argument?? Thanks for your help.
