Just want to ask permission


Recommended Posts

Just wondering. I want to post a thread on another forum on how to prevent viruses. Is it okay to add Malwarebytes into my list of softwares to use to help prevent viruses, malwares, etc.


Malwarebytes is NOT an anti-virus application.  Malwarebytes is a supplemental non-viral anti malware solution that is used in conjunction with a fully installed anti virus solution.


Therefore Malwarebytes will not "prevent viruses" per se.  If you are going to make such a list then you have to fully understand the subject matter.  To understand malware is to fully understand the taxonomy of malware and it starts with this overarching principle.  All malicious software is malware.  Viruses is just a sub-type of malware.  Any list must clearly regard Malwarebytes as part of a multi-layered defensive strategy to provide a greater broad spectrum defense.
