Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

19 Sep 2017   #1361

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 / Windows 10 Home x64

So is this the best thing to use that's not a real antivirus? I don't want to pay 39.99 for this "Premium" package.

Installed Kaspersky.

I can understand not wanting to have to pay year after year for a product (if I didn't have lifetime licenses for MBAM, now Mawarebytes, that have been grandfathered, I wouldn't use it either) but I question the wisdom of using a Russian based AV in these times when has been hacking into various Governments. Sure, Kaspersky has claimed that they do not have a backdoor for the Russian Government and never will but the Russian Government is bigger than Kaspersky and is not above bribing (everyone has a price) or forcing Kaspersky to put one in (the Russians could also hack their way in or issue phony definitions) and claim it isn't there.

It's also possible for the SSA (Squabbling States of America) to do the same but, as repugnant as that would be, I would rather have the SSA accessing my data than a known enemy.

Malwarebytes released version 1.61 today. I tried to update using the auto update on a W7 x64 PC and it failed. I ran the mbam-clean uninstall utility and downloaded/installed version 1.61 without issues. Had to re-register and reconfigure the options. I'll wait a few days to see if others...

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?
