Manual Updating of Database


Recommended Posts

I was very happy when I found that I could download a manual update file for updaing Multiple computers instead of online updates on each and every one.

But Im not so happy now that Ive found that the file downloaded at http://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam_rules has not been updated since 30-06-14. So in reality updating via that method is useless.

In the past we have been able to update via the internet one computer then copy over a couple of files (database.conf and rules.ref)

to the other PCs.

Is there any chance of the downloadable rules Zip file being updated more often than "never" or "rarely".

Or can you inform users of Malwarebytes 2.x which files can be copied over to update other computers.

Welcome back.


Until the staff can weigh in with an official reply....


Unfortunately, the method used for this for version 1 was not secure, so it was not carried over to version 2.

Moreover, version 2 is very different "under the hood".


As @Firefox explained in your other, recent topic about the same issue, manual updating can be done using the new method.

Unfortunately, this will always lag behind real-time updating of the database.

Also MBAM contains built-in chameleon technology that can help to get the program installed, up and running on a severely infected system.


Perhaps the staff will be able to further update us on the status of manual updating.

Thanks "daledoc1" for your reply. I know I others and myself have bought this topic up previously.

The solution provided was a new link to a Zip file with two exe"s, one or 1.75 and another for 2.0x versions of Malwarebytes.

My only disappointment is that the exe hasnt been updated since it was first provided on 30-06-14.

If the exe's were updated weekly or every fornightly I would be very happy indeed.

I think other users with the same problem would also be impressed.
