Malwarebytes does not pass any AMTSO tests

I asked a similar question a couple of weeks ago.

 

Here's the answer from a Root Admin --

There is not any such file. This is an Anti-Malware product and the EICAR testing file is for antivirus.

I really don't get what everyone is saying. A virus is malware. So if Malwarebytes is an Anti-Malware product it should flag viruses. It also didn't detect the phishing link.

 

as for >>

>>You are testing an Antimalware product with tools that are designed to test your Antivirus Program...
>>
>>Like comparing Apples with Oranges..

 

I would think that an antimalware program is a superset that includes antivirus. So not apples and oranges.

 

Besides saying that that it is an antimalware program not antivirus tell me one virus that is not malware.

Hi, @coltrane58:

 

Until the staff members and other experts have a chance to weigh in, you might find helpful these 2 posts by one of our resident malware experts, @David H. Lipman:

There's also this KB topic: Does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware replace antivirus software?
