Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

I'll be glad when they get all these bugs out. It's taking so long, I'm losing confidence in MBAM. I'm still using 1.75.0.1300 but I'm wondering how long I can safely do that.

Here is how to test if malwarebytes anti-exploit is working properly:

With it enabled it did block it. Here is the scary thing, I tried the following antivirus products in vms:

-Avast
-Kaspersky
-panda
-antivir
-avg

None of them detected the exploit happening. That is bad. I reported it to the vendors, and it will be intresting to recieve there responses.
You can add Norton Internet Security to the list too. MBAE did block the exploit though, but maybe they have crafted the test to work that way for their own satisfaction.

Jeannie MBAE (Malwarebytes anti-exploit) is experimental and has been for several months. I've had no issues with the current MBAM Pro version, 2.0.2.1012.

I edited my post. Its very ironic that with anti exploit disabled malwarebytes pro did not detect it ha.

Thanks for the info.

And lady, I finally upgraded to the new malwarebytes version. It is now working pretty well. Definitely heavier on resources however. It added a few good seconds to my startup time. I then changed the setting to have it delay on startup within malwarebytes and everything is fine now.

Hmm interesting as my Kaspersky has missed a couple of trojan just lately that MBAM has not picked up.
All in all MBAM (and I can only assume) is not as good as it usd to be and I am sure is slowing my mian machine down quite bit.

John you can test it by using their tool to uninstall it. I have found MBAM to be doing more, one thing is it's blocking dangerous websites which Norton missed.

I would expect then to roll MBAE into MBAM, it's certainly not worth paying for.

I have zero issues with the latest MBAM personally now. I will have to see if I have to update to the next version via the Admin account, but the protection and scans have no issue. No slowness, no crashes, etc. A Guy

Ok Gary I'll give that a whirl on my days off as it is simple enough to do.

Those Trojans I mentioned were actually picked up by the Emsisoft I think it was you mentioned somwhere before.

MBAE Test

Ran the test and here's what I see:

(MBAE is currently not installed)

First test:

Latest Version of Malwarebytes-mbae_test_1.gif

Second test after disabling protection used in the first test:

Latest Version of Malwarebytes-hips-alert.jpg

I'm not sure if it's a valid test as mbae-test.exe is a digitally signed file with a valid signature. Surely most exploits work by detecting vulnerable browser plug-ins to launch a script or (unsigned) executable?

I could be wrong but that's my take on it!

I don't think much of the English in the warning screen under the first test result. It makes it looks like malware!

Potentially it is malware! That's the whole point of the test. It simulates a technique that's used by some malware to go undetected.

Malwarebytes Database Version
I just ran the updater in Malwarebytes, and was surprised at the change in version numbers, as can be seen in the screenshot. I suppose they may just have decided to use a different system, but I'm wondering if it might indicate something more nefarious, like someone else slipping into the picture?
