Malwarebytes 3.0.6 CU3

Recommended Posts

Hi all—

Just wanted to let everyone know that we’ve started pushing out a new component package update. You should receive this automatically if you are running 3.0.5 or 3.0.6.  We are metering these updates out, so you may not receive yours immediately.

If you prefer, you may download any install our "updated" mb3-setup-consumer- installer from this link.  This installer is posted and available from our main website.  If you already have an earlier version of Malwarebytes 3.0.5 or 3.0.6 installed, we recommend that you uninstall the old version first and then install this newer version (please make a note of your key before doing so).  

Once installed, this update will show on your Malwarebytes 3.0 About screen as Component package version: 1.0.75.

(NOTE: if you already installed the preview of CU3 / 1.0.75, there is no need to install again.)

The fixes included are:

  • Fixed issue with imaging programs (such as Macrium Reflect) where large artifact files were left in the System Volume Information folder if a backup is created with anti-ransomware protection enabled
  • Fixed problem where Web Protection and Anti-Ransomware may fail to start properly
  • Fixed problem where Web Protection detections were failing on Windows 10
  • Fixed problem where DNS was not resolving properly with Web Protection enabled
  • Fixed problem where Web Protection did not show the proper block page when Bitdefender 2017 was also installed
  • Fixed an issue where certain drivers were not stopped and unloaded in Free mode
  • Fixed memory leaks
  • Improved overall malware detection and remediation

Additionally, both this update and our previous 3.0.6 upgrade addressed a number of vulnerabilities reported to us by various security researchers.  Malwarebytes would like to thank John Page (hyp3rlinx) at ApparitionSec, Florian Bogner, Michael Engstler at Cybellum and Fortinet for their reports.
