Not sure if this is a legitimate version of Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

I am trying to clean some malware off my Mac - when I go to download the free version of Malwarebytes the version number is not Malwarebytes-Mac-3.x.y.zzz.pkg. It has extra letters before the number 3 - see attached screenshot. Is this an infected download? If so, suggestions on how to get the proper version onto my Mac? Thank you!

Hello @CaroCaro and :welcome:

It has been stated elsewhere that Malwarebytes staff adds the additional information to track the source of the download.

Although the package filename appears okay, please upload the .pkg file to VirusTotal.com (VT).  An analysis of the .pkg file can NOT be had but it is a rapid method for rendering hashes.

Please reply with either 1) the detection URL from VT or 2) post the SHA-256 calculation from the same VT report.

Thank you.

From the information provided, that does appear to be a legitimate copy of the installer.
