Good features for MBAM 3.0+

Hi. My name is Foulest, and I love MBAM. It has helped me recover computers from viruses, malware, and trojans in the past. It is great, but when they released 3.0, I was astounded in their steps to being a better program. I would not personally replace my antivirus for it, but it is a good second layer of protection. I would replace it however if it had around four features that in my opinion would make it a better product. I feel like with the changes it could bring to the table; it would be a highly regarded anti-virus product. I know these will take a long time to implement, just need feedback if these would be good changes to make for MBAM in the future if possible. I added visuals to what these changes could look like as well. (I use Kaspersky).

Okay, so the changes:

1. "Application Manager."

The Application Manager would be very helpful to add to MBAM. It would replace programs like Unchecky in the Installation Manager tab and would make a more secure environment when installing software. If an application tries to change something outside of the application like modify system32, it would stop it and prompt the user with a warning. 

 

2. "Firewall."

The Firewall is pretty self-explanatory if you know a little bit about anti-viruses. A Firewall would make MBAM a complete product and in my opinion, would make people regard MBAM as an anti-virus product. I feel like the firewall is pretty necessary for an anti-virus; i.e. why I use Kaspersky.

 

3. "System Watcher."

System Watcher is a pretty neat feature in Kaspersky. It rolls back malware actions, like deleting or modifying files. It has exploit protection, which MBAM won't have to implement because it already has something similar or better. It monitors applications to see if they produce malware-like activity, and prompts the user or does a set action. It also has Ransomware protection which MBAM already has, so that's fine. Just the central two features would be impeccable to have.

 

4. "Webcam Protection."

Webcam Protection is pretty simple: warns the user when the webcam is used and has a customizable blocking feature for applications.

 

So, what do you think? These features would take quite a while to implement, but I don't know. Could be cool in the future.

I made all of these from Kaspersky in Paint and Pixlr.

Thanks for reading!

Greetings :)

Thanks for the suggestions.  I'm sure that our team will find them useful, and hopefully may someday implement some, if not all of them.

Also, specifically regarding bundled installers/installation of additional software, while we do not have a comprehensive solution specifically designed to deal with such checkboxes and offers for other products/software, we do have incredibly aggressive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) detection and generally will flag/stop bundled software from being installed (even if the user accidentally leaves the boxes checked).  I've seen this myself on several occasions where I was installing an application and the installer tried to install some additional component and Malwarebytes stopped the additional component/software from being installed and quarantined it for me (the main application still installed just fine).  We also often flag/block bundled installers known to install PUPs for the same reason, and the same goes for many of these so-called "download managers" which are often nothing more than a means to attempt to get the user to install tons of unneeded/unwanted software.  That said, I certainly see nothing wrong with a feature like Unchecky etc., I just wanted to point out that even with our existing protection users should be pretty well protected from these types of installations/bundled software.
