Full Offline Installer for MB v4.5.29 (rel. 17-May-2023)


Recommended Posts

Is Malwarebytes planning to post a full offline installer for the latest Malwarebytes v4.5.29.268-1.0.2022 (rel. 17-May-2023) at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline?  I checked today and that link is still offering the previous mb4-setup-consumer-4.5.28.266-1.0.2005-1.0.69217.exe installer.

I have automatic product updates disabled in Malwarebytes and normally delay updating until the latest offline installer is posted.  If there are no plans to release a v4.5.29 offline installer and no one reports any serious bugs with the latest version in this forum board I'll just go ahead and update from Settings | General | Check for Updates as I usually do.

It will be updated in due time. This is not an automated process...

Thanks, problem solved.  The download link at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline is now offering the full offline installer for v4.5.29 (mb4-setup-consumer-4.5.29.268-1.0.2022-1.0.69620.exe).

Do these two urls download the same version of the offline installer of Malwarebytes?

https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline

https://data-cdn.mbamupdates.com/web/mb4-setup-consumer/offline/MBSetup.exe

Source of second url: I found the second url from this article written like Mirror link CDN Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Offline Installer Download 2023 Windows 11 10

What is this CDN?

Awaiting your response

Hello @jrman505 and :welcome::

Although the above up-to-date sources are different, at the end of a successful install they will yield the same installed MB4 product of high integrity.

The offline installer is much larger when compared to the MBSetup.exe file.

The lower CDN is unrelated to Malwarebytes and is an untrusted source that should normally be avoided for results with the highest integrity.

Hi P1W:

Are you certain that https://data-cdn.mbamupdates.com/web/mb4-setup-consumer/offline/MBSetup.exe isn't part of Malwarebytes' authorized CDN (Content Distribution Network)?  If I download today from the "official" download link https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline the pop-up in my Firefox browser shows that the large 306 MB MBSetup.exe file is actually located on data-cdn.mbamupdates.com as shown below:

MBv4_5_30FullOfflineInstallerMBSetup_exefromdata-cdn_mbamupdates_com14Jun2023.png.6fc7804a0eb312f97b31310326b09447.png

I tested today and both links provided by jrman505 are currently downloading a large 306 MB MBSetup.exe file with a SHA-256 hash of 18d99ac8bfbdbb77d62ebf40788bcd55c1f0814251e6b121b8e6426c09b83087.  This might tie in with the problem you raised in your 13-Jun-2023 thread What's the conventional version number of the mb4_offline installer? about how the latest full offline installer downloaded from the "official" download link at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline is incorrectly named MBSetup.exe (the name usually reserved for the small 2.5 MB online stub installer / download manager available at https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download) instead of mb4-setup-consumer-4.5.30.269-1.0.2037-1.0.xxxxx.exe (the name we would normally expect for the current full 306 MB offline installer released on 05-Jun-2023).

_________________________________

Regardless, I would agree with you that jrman505 should always use the "official" download link https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline that is recommended for home consumers who want to download the latest Malwarebytes v4.5.x offline installer for Win 7 SP1 and higher.

The URLs are related, unless the untrusted source redirects. But why subject yourself to possible risks when, as you stated, the official high integrity sources are just as easy to obtain the MB4 installers.

What does Techwibe stand to gain from their investments and presence? Who is/are the person or individuals of Techwibe? Where is Techwibe located? What is their reputation? When their URL is visited, and despite their published “Privacy Policy”, does Techwibe sell/reveal/exploit your privacy data?
