Please upload latest definitions database

Recommended Posts


I'm having difficulty in updating Malwarebytes' virus definitions, and found the page where you upload the latest database for manual updates:

It says on this page that you aim to update this weekly but it doesn't seem to have been updated since February. Any chance of an update please?

Not sure if the file below is the same date as the one your talking about, but here are some steps on how you can update manually.

ISSUE: I need to get the latest database onto a computer that cannot access the Internet.

SOLUTION: You can manually copy the database from a working computer using a flash drive or CD onto the infected PC. Our database file is stored in the following locations.

Windows XP and 2000

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

You can also download a manual update from HERE - NOTE: This manual update will always be way behind in version level compared to updates from within the program
