MBAM 2.2.1 Patch Release

Recommended Posts


We’re happy to announce that our latest MBAM patch release, MBAM, was released today.

You may download MBAM from this link.

We’ll be enabling automatic upgrades for current users beginning next week.  If you’d like to upgrade before then, simply download the new version from the link above and install.  NOTE:  Upgrades to current users were enabled on 3/22/16.  We'll be rolling these out slowly over time, so it may still take some time for you to see a notification that a new version is available.  

Here's the full list of What’s New in v. 2.2.1--


  • Context Menu scanning option is now enabled by default.  Note if you had this option disabled previously and want to retain that setting, you must disable again manually this one time only.  Future updates will retain the setting properly
  • Improved renewal experience for those who purchased in retail store so that the original license key is retained post-renewal instead of requiring that a new key be entered and activated
  • Improved End of Trial experience so it is clear that trial has expired and real-time protection is no longer available
  • Added additional license checks to ensure subscription details are updated as quickly as possible after a renewal is processed
  • Updated company and product logos with new logo
  • For Premium subscription licenses, removed Renew button from My Account screen to avoid confusion over license term


Issues Fixed:


  • Fixed security vulnerability to ensure database updates are downloaded over SSL connections only
  • Fixed crash that occurred if Dell Backup and Recovery software was installed on same system
  • Fixed issue where scheduled scan did not honor weekly recurrence properly
  • Fixed issue where license expiration notices were incorrectly displaying multiple times in rapid succession
  • Fixed issue where the Scheduler would continue to run in certain cases after a trial had expired
  • Fixed issue where the update progress bar on the Dashboard would appear to hang and would never complete
  • Several improvements to Chameleon self-protection

Please post any feedback you have in our main Help forum here.
