MBytes will no longer scan P.U.P.s

Recommended Posts

I read where Malwarebytes is dropping PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) scan.


From Malwarebytes-

..........."While these types of programs and additions are unwanted by many, they’re not malicious nor infections. We detect some as ‘PUP’ (Potentially Unwanted Programs) but cannot classify all due their actual install practices, which when inclusive of an EULA or options to not install prevents additions to the database in any way. Users are advised to always check for ‘custom’ installation options whenever adding any program to your computer as this is the best way to avoid unwanted ‘extras’..."

We're not dropping it. The quoted text above even states as much. It says we cannot classify all as PUPs, not that we won't detect anything as PUP. This has always been true and hasn't changed. It's simply a clarification of our policy, the same policy we've always had.



Thanks for the info....
