How do I read a report file?

Recommended Posts

MacOS 10.13.6, Malwarebytes 3.4.12

Ran a trial run and it reported one threat and one remediated. I see the report listed under Reports -> Manual Scan, however I see no way to read the report or to save it. The manual does not seem to address this either. I looked thru the system and user files and found some logs, but none are from that scan.

There is not currently a method for saving the report data, or seeing logs of what has been done in the past beyond what is displayed in the Reports tab.

Registered an account to express my frustration that Malwarebytes bought out a perfectly fine utility (Adware Medic) that had easy access to logs (Scanner Menu -> Open Log file) and turned it into an always-on scanner that doesn't even save log files. I feel like having a log file is such a trivial feature of a malware removal utility that the question shouldn't be "can I view the logs" but rather "where can I view them".


It doesn't help that treed here had the same answer back in March- there are no scan logs but they "will be coming in the future". That was almost 7 months ago.
