Malwarebytes 3.4 Beta 3 - NOW CLOSED

Recommended Posts

Hi there—

We just posted the beta for our upcoming Malwarebytes 3.4 release to the Malwarebytes 3 Beta channel.  If you are opted in to this channel in Settings > Application then you should see a notification that a new version is available.  If you’d like to try it out, simply install the upgrade as you normally would.

You may also download the 3.4 Beta directly from this link and then install (or over-install, if you have an earlier version) to test it out.

We are particularly interested in your feedback around Web Protection and associated exclusions for Web Protection, but of course, we're happy for any comments and feedback you have!

3/5 Update: The 3.4 beta has now concluded and we've starting sending out v. 3.4.4 as our final release. If you are on an earlier version you can check for upgrades by going to Install Application Updates in Settings.

3/2 Update:  Malwarebytes 3.4.3 was released today as our Beta 3. We believe the Web Protection- related BSODs have finally been resolved. Please help us confirm this! :)  (NOTE:  There are known issues with web notifications on Windows XP so this beta is not recommended on XP.)

Here’s the list of changes / improvements in 3.4:

Performance/protective capability
•   Improved Web Protection for better targeting of specific URLs
•   Improved remediation for shortcuts and tasks
•   Added better handling for heavily infected systems to streamline detection & remediation
•   Continued improvements to overall protection, detection and remediation 

•   Added Notification Center for easy access to most recent real-time block notifications
•   Added category to website blocked notification to show the reason why site was blocked
•   Improved report design for better usability
•   Added device name to My Account screen in preparation to sync with My Account portal
•   Updated the API used to interact with Windows Action/Security Center
•   Changed the 'Recover if missed by' setting for Scheduled Scans to be enabled by default for new scans 
•   Numerous other user interface and copy improvements  

Stability/issues fixed
•   Fixed issue where files did not save properly with anti-ransomware enabled
•   Fixed issue where notifications could stack so you might see multiple versions of same message
•   Fixed issue where Beta opt in setting would not honor Restore Defaults
•   Updated the 7-Zip library to the latest version, v.18.01
•   Improved upgrade process from earlier versions of Malwarebytes
•   Continued improvements to driver operation and management 
•   Fixed several crashes, including a blue screen related to Web Protection
•   Addressed other miscellaneous defects

Looking forward to hearing from you! 

Please start a new topic in this forum with your feedback.
