Apparently a friend has contracted a brand new malware: ildefender.exe. None of the antivirus, antimalware, or anti-rootkit utilities recognizes it. There is a report here in the Newest Malware Threats section.
When will Malwarebytes likely be able to detect and remove it?
I think this is the post you mentioned? http://forums.malwar...howtopic=127976
We'll need to wait for the staff to reply to your specific inquiry, but normally the lead time is pretty short, as the detection database is updated several times a day.
In the interim, if your friend's computer is infected, he/she may want to register here at the forum, so that he/she can get expert, one-on-one malware removal help over in the malware removal area of the forum.
If so, please direct him/her to start with the advice posted in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A qualified helper will guide your friend through the cleanup process.
