MB3 Consumer Command Line

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I'm trying to build a home sandbox for learning and filtering processes. I'm using Python to run files into a VM, open them there for behavioral analysis and scan and then pass on to the network.

I was hoping to use Malwarebytes inside the VM to do a prescan of the file (having the python script run it silently) and then also collect the logs from the background running MBAM process for behavioral analysis.

And while the latter part is doable (more or less, cause if it finds something, it'll pop up the GUI and I only need the logs), the former is now apparently not.

Do you and when do you expect the mbamapi or the old CLI features to return to the home version of your excellent product?

Greetings,

I'm honestly not sure that they intend to implement command line support for the home version of Malwarebytes, however if they do then it probably won't be for a while until the next major release (like 4.x or whatever it may be called the next time they overhaul the UI and other major features).

Too bad.

Though did see somewhere a reply that it would be back in 2.x or 3.x... Not sure which.

Yes, I think they did add it back into 2.x at one point, however I believe that was only for the business versions of the product.  I haven't heard anything about 3.x command line support that I can recall unfortunately.
