Where is the Definition Location or file


Recommended Posts

Please explain your question, it is not clear what you are looking for?

Some configuration is in Program Files.

Some data is in Program data folders.

Fully working software is downloadable as trial from our website.

If that app requires that scanners use a single static defs file then Malwarebytes is incompatible as it actually uses several separate databases for various components in the engine and various categories of threats/PUPs/PUMs/rootkits etc.  It hasn't used a single comprehensive database file since the Malwarebytes 1.x consumer version days several years ago (back then it was called rules.ref), but since then the entire engine and program has been rewritten from the ground up to use a much more modular structure, including multiple databases for the various modules and purposes I mentioned.

Unfortunately no, there is no single database file for Malwarebytes.  It, much like most modern AVs, now uses multiple database files.  I don't know offhand what names they go under now as I didn't keep up with all of the changes after version 2.x, but I suspect they are all located somewhere under Malwarebytes ProgramData folder as that is where it stores most of its data and configuration files.

Rules definitions are under C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\*.mbdb
They are encrypted and protected, you cannot hand edit/change them. They self-update on a timer.
If you are using the Endpoint Protection product, the update schedule is defaulted  to 1 hour.
You just need to configure by Cloud Management, then deploy as MSI using ConnectWise

Perhaps you need to state your concern, as here, you are creating a solution to something which may not be a problem?

Guys, they are using Connectwise, aka Labtech, this is a Malwarebytes partner who's integration deploys and manages MBAM 1.x, MBAE 1.x and ARW 0.9 standalone.

 

Barinder, I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to do, MBAM already integrates with Control Center and this information should already be in the dashboard. Is this some sort of alternate reporting thing?

To follow up on this a bit more, for what you are asking go to C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, use the text files called "version.check" and "rules.new.yaml", they have version info within them you will need to parse. The actual signature files, rules.new and rules.ref, are encrypted and you will get nothing out of them except a date stamp. These files cannot be swapped around, the program itself needs to read and apply them.

2 hours ago, Guest App data folder said:

Users/username/Appdata/malwarebytes

This folder doesn't exist in current Malwarebytes installations.  There are a couple of folders located under Users\<user name>\AppData\Local, however the threat detection databases are not stored there.  Please refer to the information in this post.
