  1. Hi there, Is there any ability coming or presently in Malwarebytes for MAC that allows custom scanning of other disks, such as an external drive or other internal drive? This would benefit greatly. Consider it feedback if it's not there!
  2. Wondering if Malwarebytes for Mac 3.0 scans external hard disks. I've heard that antivirus programs should not be allowed to scan external hard drives, since they can break the links in Time Machine that record changes. Thank you!
  3. Using the Pro version could it be possible that when connecting an external USB drive, Malwarebytes would pop-up a suggestion to scan it or to cancel the scan. This would be a good reminder of how easy it would be to to get infected via a flash drive? Thanks.
  4. Hello everyone, I would like to clarify a crucial point. I have recently been pointed towards your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac product as I am currently trying to make sure my Mac isn't infected, part of a broader security haul-up I'm currently into. I'm very impressed with your product as well as the Mac blog articles that you have, the majority of which I have read in the recent days. Thanks a lot ! - I wanted to know if it is possible that MalwareBytes Anti-Malware for Mac could get infected immediately after download or installation, and therefore making it report false or corrupted scan results or just not scan correctly at all. The origin of this question is that a while back when I was still a Windows user, it was possible to have your antivirus that got infected and therefore corrupted, that's why we could have some "emergency" floppy disks made to scan at boot for example, in order to ensure a safer scan. I was wondering if Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac is safe from this kind of situation. - I'm also wondering if it's possible to have a similar "external" way to scan a Mac for safer results ? - I was also wondering if there are any types of virus such as these on mac ? The kind that can infect your antivirus or spread to all files, then spreading to my Apple Time Capsule for example. At the moment Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac reports that it doesn't find anything on my Mac. However I am still wondering about the corruption possibility as mentioned above and I would like to just validate these results. - I'm also running Avast Mac Security 2015, and I got several warnings in the past, that were apparently blocked by Avast. But this means my Mac got exposed somehow, which is why I'm trying to make sure everything is OK. I've included a PDF with screenshots of the names of those threats, screenshoted from Avast's report, 1 screenshot per page. Which also makes me ask you: can MalwareBytes Anti-Malware for Mac run alongside Avast Mac Security 2015 without them preventing each other from working correctly ? Thanks a lot for your help !

  5. Hi I am a newbie on forums like this. Links from my received emails not working at all. Using Outlook 2010 on Windows 10. I am just wondering if this is a default behaviour for MBAR or if there is some setting. Should I be looking elsewhere for a setting?
