Opinions on Mbam's Anti Exploit program.

I have seen this around and i heard it has a tiny footprint , i'm just curious as to how many hear have this on their system and if they think it's worth it.


I have Kaspersky AV and run Mbam to compliment it and i have no issues , zero day attacks make me a little nervous though since they are brand new and many are not in AV databases yet.


Opinions please

Thanks guys/gals

I've been using the free version (is there a paid version?) since last June without incident. According to the logs, it has not blocked anything, which is fine.

Uses about 40 megs of RAM on my system.

Can't say it's ever going to save your bacon, but it appears to be unobtrusive and causes no problems. Just an icon running in the System Tray.

Personally I don't use it. I did use it when it was known as ZeroVulnerabilityLabs ExploitShield before MBAM took over the project. All I got was acouple of false positive detections.

I did try using MBAM Anti-Exploit too but it doesn't work with all browsers that I use so it was useless to me. Also there are known issues to keep an eye on.

Having said that - if it works for you I guess it's an extra layer of protection worth having.

Thanks guys, ignatzatsonic , yes they came out with a paid version. Don't know about it's effectiveness though.

MBAE v1.06.1.1018 was released today: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...8/#entry952209

Today's release uses a little under 28MB of RAM on my W7x64 system.

The FAQ may be of interest to some: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...ked-questions/

If you are uncertain tomorrow's Exploit Kits would be thwarted by your present defense arsenal, check out MBAE.

Hi:

As for "known issues" and "conflicts", that can happen with ANY security program.
I am just a home user, but the MBAE team works very hard to resolve all such issues.
Issues or conflicts can be reported here: Support forum

As far as browser protection, the paid, premium version permits Custom Shields.

Thank you,

I've used the paid version for awhile now. While I have most of the default-shields off ['cause I don't have those programs], I haven't taken the time to enter the programs I do have, yet. So far, no problems, no alerts concerning MBAE. And, thanks MM for those links, I'm checking them out now.

I already use Mbam premium to run alongside my AV , just can't decide if adding MBAE would be worth it or not , seems most have noticed it has not shown in their usage to have blocked anything .

I suppose it can't hurt but i keep my system as minimal as i can as far as programs .

My system looks barren when you compare it to many others i have seen .

The 2 products work differently and in a complementary manner.

MBAM blocks the "what", while MBAE blocks the "how".

There is more information in the links in my previous reply, as well as here:
