Hi I want to start out by saying I love your flagship product and I purchased a perpetual license back around 2010 when MalwareBytes Premium was called MalwareBytes Professional. But from what I've heard MBAM perpetual licenses that are few years old are invalid in version 2.1.7 and I'm nervous to update MalwareBytes because of this. Please tell me whats being done to fix this bug? Because I would like to update sometime to 2.1.7.

You would end up updating to version 2.1.8, which will be released next week.  You could force it now (if you want to) by clicking UPDATE NOW until it pays attention to you (shouldn't be long).  If you do encounter a problem, Malwarebytes Support can fix it for you quickly.  If you purchased a license from Malwarebytes and have not shared it with anyone or abused its use, there will likely be no problem.

 

Bugs are encountered (for the most part) because of license abuse or because programs were not bought directly from Malwarebytes.  If you aren't in either of those two categories, you're probably fine.
