Please read the following article for further information regarding the recent Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities reported on January 3, 2018, by the Google Project Zero team Also, from our Malwarebytes Labs Meltdown and Spectre: what you need to know Meltdown and Spectre fallout: patching problems persist https://blog.malwarebytes.com/cybercrime/exploits/2018/01/meltdown-and-spectre-fallout-patching-problems-persist/
Hi, Recently we have been experiencing random and spiking plague of the BSOD on our Dell systems (all latitude E7470 + very recently some OptiPlex AIO). For almost all of the machines it is related to either Intel WiFi or Graphic driver (Widi). Some are Kernel_data_inpage and other. Recently we were able to narrow plenty of those errors to malwarebytes. For example, one of the machines was restored to factory image. Some basic software was installed. It looked to be fine until Malwareybtes was installed - instant crash right and left. You would boot computer, login and every few minutes it would result in blue screen. Once malwarebytes was removed BSOD would stop. We have reinstalled it and it seems to be fine now. It is really puzzling. We are using endpoint + anti-exploit. I know dell puts a lot of crap software on their images but this is what we have to live with. Maybe something gets in conflict? Does anyone else experience similar problems? I would say it started around those updates for Intel processors. Any chance malwarebytes has problem with it? I am more than happy to answer any questions.
Apologies if Malwarebytes has already issued a statement regarding the CPU security vulnerability announced this week but I couldn't find anything on your website or Twitter page. Microsoft announced that their patch is only being released via Windows Update for systems that are running compatible anti-virus products (or no AV product) as the patch can lead to instability for machines running a small number of anti-virus products on the market. I am running Windows 10 and have not seen a patch come down for my machine via Windows Update so I am assuming Malwarebytes is not confirmed to work with Microsoft's patch. Is that accurate? If so, when do you anticipate being able to confirm with Microsoft that your product works with the MS patch? An advisory page on your site for this would be helpful...I may have overlooked it.
The only way i can actually see it is if i use chrome. It runs automatically and when i try to close the proccess it reopens it self after 5-10 minutes. While running it uses nearly 100% of my cpu. I was able to delete the file using the command prompt, but it seems it reinstalled itself almost immediately. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
