No anti-exploit for Mac?

Recommended Posts

I think there should be an anti-exploit for Mac. I got hit by a nasty exploit that installed things like mackeeper and webshoppy. There was also really bad adware making all browsers mostly useless. It also uninstalled avast premium. It was a big pain removing it because Malwarebytes for mac wasn't picking up everything.

Although an anti-exploit is something we are considering for Mac, what you ran into was not an exploit. An exploit is something taking advantage of a vulnerability in the system or some other software. Things like MacKeeper and webshoppy are installed by trojans - ie, files that you are tricked into downloading and opening. That is not what anti-exploit is made to block.

If you're still having trouble and think you've got something that isn't being detected, choose Contact Support from the Help menu within Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac.
