Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.3 Released

Recommended Posts

Greetings :)

I'm proud to announce the release of our latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware: version 2.0.3 for consumers.

This release is heavily focused on the fixing of bugs, accessibility and squashing new malware. It is now available for download from here.

For the time being, in order to balance server load, we'll be throttling upgrades for existing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware users when they check for updates, but if you'd like to get the new version immediately, go right ahead and download it from the link above and install it over your existing version.

As always, if you encounter any problems, bugs or issues please report them in a new topic here or contact our Support team directly here. Also, feel free to check out our user guides and FAQs located here.

We also plan to make some major changes to our user interface (UI) in our next release, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.1.0 which is due out early next year so keep your eye on our newsletter, social networking pages and of course our forums here for more info as it becomes available. We've got some exciting changes in the works, and we'll definitely want to be showing them off as they get closer to completion :)!

Here's the list of changes for this release:

New Features:

• Scans may now be set to run as lower priority processes to improve multi-tasking under Advanced Settings

Congrats on the new release, and the hard work with fixing the bugs....

I assume that if we were running the RC1 2.0.3.1025 that there is no need to updated as its the same version?

Yes, that's correct, it's the exact same build as the RC :).

Thanks for the update. 

 

Nice to see all the bug fixes.

 

With rootkit scanning enabled, I still do get some hangs but it's much less frequent that 2.0.2012. No hangs if rootkit scanning is disabled but overall much satisfied.

Version 2.0.3.1025 has a bug that shows the Malicious Website Protection as disabled and it cannot be activated.

 

This is pretty alarming.

 

Also, after running a HyperScan, it fails, and you click the "Show Detailed Log" and it just open a desktop Explorer window.

I am having the same issues. Got a notification an hour ago saying Malicious Website Protection is disabled. Whenever I try to enable it, nothing changes. The same also happens when trying to run a HyperScan. 

 

It's currently running a scheduled scan, but I'll see if it even manages to complete it or if another error will occur.

Yes, there appears to be an issue with a recent database update. We are tracking down the cause and working on getting the issue fixed as I write this.

Thank you for your prompt reply! Will I still be able to web surf despite the error? Besides running Malwarebytes, I also run Panda Internet Security so should I be fine?

I have the same problem and I did the very same things those above did to correct the problem. However, the scan though it looks active, when you check details it says the scan failed. Very alarming!

I am glad you are working on this issue. I hope to get Malwarebytes up and working properly, I was a fan, until this issue started.

Glad to know that I'm not alone in this issue. It's even better to know that theMB Team is aware and working on it.

Agreed... I am having the same problem after updating to 2.0.3.1025

Dashboard shows that Malicious Website Protection is disabled. "Fix Now" button does nothing.
