Test File Renamed to fool MBAE?


Recommended Posts

MBAE works with filenames... either using popular programs (such as Internet Explorer and Firefox)... or, in the paid version, user-added programs, as specified/added by the user.   It does NOT monitor anything else.   So, if you change the name of a program, you've effectively "hidden" it from MBAE's "sight".

One must distinguish between general anti-virus / anti-malware programs, whose goal is to try to offer you overall protection, and must consider that programs can be renamed to try to avoid protection... vs. anti-exploit, whose specific goal is to monitor only those programs that are regularly exploited (browsers, including add-ons like Flash; and in the paid version, Reader and Office).
