Hello to All:

A successful update was made on my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) from Mac for Malwarebytes v3.7.34 Premium to v3.8.16.2524 Premium running macOS Mojave v10.14.4.  An OS reboot was not called out but a cold restart was performed non-the-less.

Owing to my possible inattention, I never noticed a notification popup that an application update was available.  The fast runtime of a manual scan is significantly equal to that of the previous release version using database v4.0.376.

Congratulations to all that made this release a success!

Thank you.

Two suggestions for the next version, always waiting for web protection:
1) Delete from the reports the type of item highlighted in the screenshot (the user has deleted X elements): at least I don't understand the usefulness
2) View in Malwarebytes information the database version in addition to the software version.

Thank you

Greetings

1) I certainly find that information useful to me in tracking what has occurred and it would be essential if I were to need to diagnose another users actions.

2) I believe you have already passed on that recommendation more than once over the past year or more. Such information would be of little use to me in that there isn't a posting that would tell me what the latest available version is. I find that the reports section that tells me the date and time that "Protection updated to version x.x.xxx" is useful in that it I can tell very quickly if there hasn't been an update for an extended period of time, which I suspect is what you are most interested in knowing.

One thing does not exclude the other

Given the usefulness of this information (always according to you, it doesn't seem to me), I would recommend the possibility of seeing results (whether they are real time or by scanning) and update together (It would be the display I chose as default).
It would be a very useful visualization for me.

There are some reasons that we have removed the database version from the app, but you can still find that information, if it interests you, here:

/Library/Application Support/Malwarebytes/MBAM/Logs/product.info

You can also refer to database update information in Reports, which lists the version number of the updates when they are downloaded.

Hello to All:

A successful update was made on my MacBookPro11,3 (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) from Mac for Malwarebytes v3.8.16.2524 Premium to v3.8.17.2526 Premium running macOS Mojave v10.14.5.  Again, an OS reboot was not called out but a cold boot was performed non-the-less. 

A manual threat scan, with database 4.0.382, successfully completed in usual approximate time.  Congratulations again to all that made this release a success!

Thank you.

Hello to All:

Seeing @alvarnell's work with another member about six hours ago, I first did a bit of housekeeping to my MacBookPro11,3 above and followed with a cold boot.  I still failed to find an update notification for Malwarebytes for Mac 3.8.17.2526 so I opened the GUI and selected "Check for Updates..." and then the 3.9.23 update did a trouble-free download/install.  Though not called out, I followed with a cold boot.

When checked after a manual scan, the database is 4.0.406.

My system's total manual scan time of 1:25 has understandably increased with the usual number of objects scanned.  With all 3.9.23 features enabled, I do not detect any difficulties.

I look forward to an updated releasenote/changelog.  Thank you team members for the update!

Hello @adas:

Outstanding!  Thank you.

BTW - the 3368 document states the version is 3.9

Please disregard my now obvious error.  I have also corrected my #7 post.  Thank you.

Rebooting after installing or updating Malwarebytes for Mac isn't actually necessary... but it looks like that may be changing in macOS Catalina, from our testing. (Looks like Catalina either requires a reboot after installing a kernel extension, or it's a beta bug and not the final Catalina behavior.)

Hello to All:

FWIW - No noticeable changes to Malwarebytes for Mac 3.9.23 operation have been detected with my last night's update to macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G87) with the Supplemental Update included.

Hello to All:

This morning I updated my trouble-free 3.9.23 with today's release of 3.9.27.2815 without difficulty.  A following Threat Scan, with DTBS 4.0.407, took a few seconds longer but finished clean as earlier today.

I can only imagine the long and hard work by the good folk behind the scenes.  Thank you for all you do.
