Malwarebytes 4.0.4.49

I have been using Malwarebytes Corporate for a couple of years. Since this is a newer up-to-date Malwarebytes is it recommendable that I change to it instead?

To be perfectly honest, there are folk who say these "antivirus" and "anti-malware" programs are ineffective and other people who say they are a 100% necessity.

To put it into  context, I recently got hit by "Neshta" virus which attacked all the ".exe" files on my computer.

Fortunately I had a recent image of my system to restore and the damage was reduced to no more than a little inconvenience. ESET had flagged the danger, but as ESET has been flagging "Scrinject" trojans in many unrelated sites for a while and since Malwarebytes Corporate didn't flag anything at all, I made the fatal click and the "Neshta" did its stuff.

So I take responsibility for the "infection"....I should have heeded the ESET flag.

Without ESET or similar protection there would be no flag and it  would be like dancing through a minefield wearing a blindfold. So, love them or hate them I think you need these forms of added protection....especially if you are not so expert in your computer knowledge and experience.

Just my opinion though.:w00t::w00t::w00t:

P.S:- Any meds for this new Malwarebytes version?

Nestha is not virus, but special program to make changes in some registry keys. It's a program or app as any other, the only difference is that it can be used making any changes, what most people doesn't love. But most of apps, scripts etc can set to make similar changes, it doesn't mean, that they are viruses. Virus is absolutely something else. Not very long ago was wanted to disable java, because many such a bad apps was written using java. Absurd to disable something by similar reasons.

  • I remember one case where a man was wanted to be imprisoned because he had a gun at home, but he didn't had any permission, license, consent to keep it at home.
    In his closing statement, the man asked for a few more years to be added to the  judgement.
    When asked why, he said it is for rape.
    Nobody understood and the man explained - I also have this tool and usually always with me ....
    Just add a few years, I have it and it is always with me, anyone don't know what can happen.

OK Kalju, I believe you and trust your advice.

But it's a little bit pedantic to say that Neshta isn't a virus...I don't care what it's called,  the thing was MALICIOUS AND UNWANTED by me on my machine. I don't care if it's called Elvis Presley, it did the damage that a "virus" is set up to cause....and it was flagged by ESET before stubborn Funkyy decided he knew better!!1 lol:w00t::w00t::w00t:

@funkyy 

I would be delighted if you could ever understand that these tools can in no way protect you from anything.

Never!

All of this is pure market economy lie told to you. It's only pure fraud!

Is it still like an antivirus companion or is it became a full fledged antivirus now ?

Full-fledged Anti-Malware. ;)

Then what do you advise?..that we surf the internet only with a browser? Remember that many, many people don't have your knowledge and ability with code, hosts files, TCP connections, processes, etc etc etc. Perhaps you have the expertise to pre-empt problems but many of us don't and so we turn to these "antivirus/anti-malware" programs. Let's say they are 99% useless....well even if that is true, 1% effectiveness is better than nothing...especially if you haven't paid for it!!:w00t::w00t::w00t:

Here you are mostly right. Unfortunately, this is so and it makes me really sad, but there is no way, to make something better.
I've been a schoolteacher for quite some time, there could have been something to do, but how, if we work/worked with the customer's material and its production tool is privately owned. The result is like gold mining, look as lot as You want, but nothing to find, all is only sand. Sometimes rarely a few grams ...
Plus, this gene theory .... If Charles Robert Darwin knew it ...

the usual link for the offline version ( http://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mbam ) now gets an online installer.

Does someone know the link to the offline version FROM THE OFFICIAL SITE?? (yes, I know someone posted an offline installer here, but I want the permanent link from the official site, similar to the one above)

Anyway to add "Exclusions" on version 4.0.4 as the older version 3.8.2 allowed?

I have been scratching my head for a while now and I am unable to find anything like "Exclusions" on the latest 4.0.4.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT: I finally found it, please check the pictures below (Open app -> Detection history -> Allow List) :-

Which version @jvidal do you want ? You can use this link for MBAM-v2 specially if you don't like at all the both (MBAM-v3 neither MBAM-v4)

I confirm it will provide the offline installer (because the size is about 22 Mo for MBAM-v2.2.1.1043 which the latest version published).

 

PS : For a lot of people, it won't be a trouble. Because they believe MBAM-v2 is the best one and from my point of view, it will remain true for a very long time.

Abandon ? As today, don't worry the database is update every day (several times) for any analyze.

By the way, MalwareBytes won't stop to provide any update for MBAM-v2 unless they become crazy... In that case, a bunch of people will stop to use this software.

@Kalju @funkyy

Real good discussion but the question remains how to be protected while browsing? Being cautious is always the number one recommendation beside using “good browsing habits!”, that never seems to be enough.
