Hello--

The recently published “DoubleAgent” attack was disclosed by Cybellum to Malwarebytes on January 20th, 2017. We were already aware of the issue at the time and were working on measures to improve the self-protection mechanism in our product to protect against this attack vector. We released a fix for this in late February.

The vulnerability used in the attack is not specific to anti-malware software, it affects any Windows application that does not have the appropriate protections in place. Furthermore, the vulnerability requires the attacker to have local administrative privileges on the target machine.
