I appreciate at least they recognized the issue, but this is an Antimalware behaving like malware. Imagine you buy an medicine that's  a poison, my confidence in this software is broken

shayit happens to even big companies

Hi Guys,

sad to say I'm also a member of the 'ME TOO' clan.

 

4GB (97%) memory usage for the latest update . dont these people test or debug before rolling out updates??

 

uninstall seems to be the only option at present.

pity, because it used to be a good program ;(

Much simpler to open MalwareBytes. Go to Settings along the left. Go to second tab: Protection. Scroll down to Start up options. Turn off the first one that starts MalwareBytes upon startup. Reboot.

Now you're running without any protection. Yep, much simpler, just not safe.

3803 db fixes this issue. more information to follow.

 

This did solve it, but not right away. I still needed to close the program and stop the service again and start them again for it to stop the memory issue.

Someone owes you a worst pretender award. RAM can take so much more punishment than this.

Agreed.  Seriously doubt your hardware is damaged CrapshackCo.  Chin up.

Guys open the program and then in the dashboard on the right under scan status click on "Current" or whatever you have next to Updates:

Let it update then stop the service and mbam will reboot.. then go to Settings, About Tab.. and make sure it says update package version: 1.0.3803 under the other versions.

I did that and mbam service is less than 200megs and holding!

I updated and restarted, mine is still on the rise very slowly.

 

EDIT: It's solved now.

This bug absolutely wrecked my parents' computer. They are non-technical adults who could not debug a problem like this on their own. Fortunately, I was visiting and able to address the issue for them.

I cannot risk a recurrence of this issue when I am out of town. For all intents and purposes, my parents' computer would be completely disabled. This is PRECISELY the type of event I bought Malwarebytes to avoid. As a professional software engineer, I am EXTREMELY disappointed in the apparent lack of testing and QA that enabled this defective launch. I am cancelling my parents' subscription and it will never be renewed. Malwarebytes has lost 3 customers forever.

I have an I-7 processor, 16GB of RAM.  Malware Bytes service is using 13GB of RAM and it's not in a scan.

 

I uninstalled / reinstalled Malware bytes.  still has the issue.

 

Also, having a problem enabling real time protection.  Argh....
