Several Depths of Scan


Recommended Posts

a recent mbam full scan missed 16 trojans and exploits -- classified as "severe" by safety.live.com -- all in the same subfolder.

i suggest that mbam offer at least 2 depths of scan -- "quick" versus "thorough"

the thorough setting would be especially useful for the windows explorer shell menu because i would know, from other sources, where the infection is.

Malwarebytes already has these 2 levels of scans and a 3rd if you have MBAM pro (flash scan).

The exploits would not be detected by us directly as they are scripts and not executable (why MBAM should be used with the AV of you choice instead of in place of it).

The way we deal with exploits is a bit different, I will list the stages and where MBAM and AV come into play:

Host site exploit resided : MBAM IP block

Exploit script : AV

Remote site where payload resides : MBAM IP block

Execution of payload : MBAM PM block or AV
