If you prefer, you may download the full installer directly from this link.

This version is a fairly minor refresh: the only changes were some edits to some of the strings for some of our translations.

This release allows you to download the full installer without previous betas installed. The link referenced above is:

Or use the link to the forum post, First link after the quote.

Just installed 2.1.4.1018.

I like the looks of it. Too early to tell how it behaves.

What's the current consensus of whether or not it's advisable to "automatically quarantine detected items"? I see that it is the default.

I seem to recall a fiasco a couple of years ago that resulted in many unbootable systems. Mine included. I got out of it by restoring an image, but as I recall it could have been avoided if "automatic quarantine" had been disabled.

I too got bricked by that update and restored a Backup Image.
I turned off auto quarantine thinking that would be safer.
I later read turning it off really doesn't do what it sounds like.
It only delays the auto quarantine for 30 or 60 seconds, then if the user doesn't reply, it auto quarantines anyway.
If you're sitting in front of the PC when something gets detected it will help.

I don't know if they changed the way that works since then, i never heard they did.

I've been using the recent Beta's and RC's for several weeks now without issues.

The free version, on the other hand, doesn't auto-quarantine at all so far as I'm aware. Is that the case or is there in fact just a delay there as well?

Since I have back trouble (a yellow streak running down it), methinks I will wait a while before updating.

I'm not absolutely sure on that as I have the paid version on all my systems.
The free version doesn't run automatic scans or updates so you would have to manually do something to detect any malware.
If you start a scan and walk away, it might auto quarantine if you're not there when items are detected ???

When i got bricked it was caused by an auto update of the virus definitions.
The PC just immediately bricked as real-time protection quarantined valid OS system files.

Maybe someone else here knows and will reply, or you could ask on the MBAM forum.

Although you may always download through the Malwarebytes portal webpage, the automatic/self updater feature will not begin to update till early next week if your application is enabled.

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?
