MBAM 3.0 --->7 yeras ago

Recommended Posts


7 years ago I stated that is not feasible for MBAM to be just an additional layer of defense and the best would be to transform it in a fully flagged antivirus!

The idea was vigorously denied , by Marcin and some other users / moderators.

Today MBAM3.0 is being announced with big fanfare!

Malware has evolved over the years. Rootkits,Ransomware,Browser/Program exploits. Malwarebytes is just adapting to the new challenges. MBAM is STILL designed to run alongside your preferred AV.

"Rootkits,Ransomware,Browser/Program exploits" should have been addressed by the main AV, which MBAM was supposed to complement.

Rather than "evolution" I would say is "competition" : with so many AV performing at 100% in tests (including zero days) there is no need to run (and pay) for additional software. 

The trick is, once MBAM 3.0 is declared a fully flagged antivirus , will have to participate in AV test / AV comparatives; up to this point MBAM had a valid excuse: was not an AV.

Time will tell.
