Beta update danger


Recommended Posts

Good, I have been using Malwarebytes for many, many, years and my confidence remains high.  Thank you.  I am not a pro so these next comments might seem silly. 

I have been told that the internet can not be made totally safe because people will always find a new way to hack it.  But I have not excepted this argument because I have learned in my life that nothing is impossible for a smart engineer.  Maybe Malwarebytes could make an update that was dangerous for hackers.  An update that used AI and Malwarebytes vast user network to hunt and isolate hackers and malware out on the internet before they gets very far.  Malwarebytes does post the malware that have been captured, but I want to see some heads.

We can understand your frustration to be sure but offensively attacking would put us in legal hot water too. Let me leave you with some information though that will help you to better protect your computer as well as your privacy.

A lot of reading so read and review as you have time.

 

If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. 
If you're still using Google Chrome I would highly suggest you consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though)
