Malwarebytes unveils ExplotShield-based Anti-Exploit Beta

Quote:
Malwarebytes has released the first public beta of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, a rebranded and improved version of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs’ ExploitShield. And just as in its previous incarnation, Anti-Exploit is an extremely easy-to-use tool which protects popular applications from zero-day exploits, web-based vulnerability exploits and more.

The full list of shielded apps includes browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE, Opera), Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Media Players (Windows Media Player, VLC, Winamp, QuickTime), PDF-related tools (Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, Adobe Acrobat) and more (Java, Windows Script Host, Windows Help)

SAN JOSE, Calif. - June 20th, 2013 – Malwarebytes, a leading provider of anti-malware software, today announced the acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs, Inc. , a vulnerability, exploit and security research and development firm. ZeroVulnerabilityLabs technology proactively shields software applications from zero-day exploits, malware infections from exploit kits, and other web-based vulnerability exploits.

The acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs complements and expands Malwarebytes’ industry-leading anti-malware suite, which includes Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro. Like Malwarebytes, ZeroVulnerabilityLabs has worked tirelessly to develop software that fights and protects users against malicious attacks.

“I am very pleased to announce the acquisition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs and to welcome its employees to the Malwarebytes team,” said Malwarebytes CEO, Marcin Kleczynski. “We are always looking to improve upon our existing offerings, and have done so with the addition of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs’ technology. The proactive nature of this technology makes it a great addition and compliment to the existing Malwarebytes software suite.”

ZeroVulnerabilityLabs has developed multiple products, including a browser and corporate edition of its flagship product, ExploitShield. Both the corporate and browser editions include all the protections needed to prevent drive-by download attacks originating from commercial exploit kits. The corporate edition adds additional protection against file format-targeted attacks, media format-targeted attacks and advanced stealth-targeted attacks.

“We are excited to be joining the Malwarebytes team and to work to advance the latest anti-exploit R & D efforts, which we started at ZeroVulnerabilityLabs,” said Pedro Bustamante, Co-Founder and CEO of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs. “It is a great fit between two companies who are fighting malware in innovative and effective ways in order to protect both users and companies from the most dangerous and complex types of attacks.” A new and improved version of ExploitShield with new features and rebranded as Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is available for a limited time through the ZeroVulnerabilityLabs website.

You will basically not notice anything unless you should happen upon an exploit. I have had it installed for about 9 months. I open the GUI every now and then and clear the logs. Very low resource usage, a nice install and forget program. A Guy

Given the amount of dodgy links I have to click on each day to make sure they are safe I don't think it will be long before it's tested.

Cool, let us know if you get alerts. I assume it works, but like most of my layered security, I never get to find out
