Does not pick up bitcoin miner


Recommended Posts


We downloaded the business version, and run the scan via the tasking.

But it did not pick up any malware.

But other scanning tools, 8 of them, picked up a number of malware, including bitcoin miner. 

The "home malwarebytes" version works must better, but does not run on a server. 

What to do?

Hi @nicob

The business versions require more hands on changes to the settings out of the box. This is especially true for the Breach Remediation / Incident Response products as you have to write your own scripts to run it, however, all versions run on the same signatures. The only way home is going to pick something up that Incident Response (MBIR), Endpoint Security (MBES) or Endpoint Protection (MBEP) didn't is if you do not have a like for like configuration of the settings controlling what Malwarebytes is looking for and tagging for removal. Were you running with PUP's on and scanning in archives? "Home" Malwarebytes is version 3, version 3 for business is called Malwarebytes Endpoint Protection (MBEP) - https://www.malwarebytes.com/business/endpointprotection/
