Scanning remote users


Recommended Posts

Hi jhostetler, and welcome to the Malwarebytes forums!


The Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Remediation Tool runs on a client level. To scan remote computers, you'd need to copy the tool to their system and then run the scan. To do this remotely, you'd need a solution to execute commands on the client from another system, such as PSExec. Hopefully this helps clarify, but please let us know if there's anything else we can assist with.

Welcome to the forum!


David is correct, you could use psexec to remotely execute MBAM Remediation Tool on your VPN'ed endpoints.


An alternative to copying the MBAM-RT package to each endpoint is to simply execute it remotely. What I mean is to share the MBAM-RT package via a central server that's accessible by the VPN dial-ins. You can then simply run a script or policy to map the network drive on each VPN endpoint and then psexec the mbam.exe.


Also I recommend taking a look at the following post if you want do collect logs centrally and/or change the default settings to for ex. disinfect PUPs:
