  1. As I mentioned to you on BleepingComputer, here are the facts:1. The product has always been $24.95.2. When we switched to a subscription model, we grandfathered in every. Single. Customer. Meaning, if you bought it, we honored your lifetime key and continue to do so.3. We have almost 400 engineers, threat researchers, and more to pay. This is not an easy job, and criminals are way ahead of most security companies.4. Remediation is FREE. Literally free. We build software to HELP YOU FOR FREE. I can't take the anger and reaction seriously when we clean up 250 million computers a year for FREE. This is not going away, consider this my pledge to the security community.5. JRT is still maintained and free, AdwCleaner will be as well.6. $25 a year is still one of the cheapest product on the market, by a substantial amount.7. Ultimately, you don't have to use the product. Instead of posting hate speech, just go use a competitive product that fits your needs. AdwCleaner is not going away, you can continue to use it without Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
  2. As many of you have already seen, last week I blogged that we would be getting more aggressive in the detection of Potentially Unwanted Programs, or “PUPs” as we call them. I’d like to announce that we’re advancing that mission with the acquisition of AdwCleaner. AdwCleaner is a popular product, installed over 200 million times, and used by consumers, technicians, and enterprises all over the globe to remove adware, browser hijackers, other potentially wanted programs, and more. As I write this, it averages more than 200,000 downloads per day. Jérôme and Corentin, the two engineers that have maintained the project from very early on, will be joining the Malwarebytes team. Short term, we will work to give the product a facelift and enhance its detection ability. Over a longer period, we hope to learn from and integrate the technology into our flagship product, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. AdwCleaner will remain free as a standalone product. Consumers and businesses download AdwCleaner more than 200,000 times per day, making it one of the most downloaded products on many sites. Installed around 200 million times, AdwCleaner has proven effective against bloatware, questionable software and specific types of malware. As a reminder, you can read more about our PUP classification criteria here! Learn more about AdwCleaner: Download the free version of AdwCleaner: Marcin
  3. Hi all, we've made some changes to our PUP detection criteria. I urge you to take a look: Thanks!
  4. Update to those that subscribed to this post. Beta 3 is now available above!
  5. Hi all, as Pedro said, we are very excited about this beta. A few common questions came up and so I'll link a few of Pedro's answers that were scattered around the forums. I have MBAM and MBAE. Why do I need Anti-Ransomware? How do I report a False Positive? Also, as many of you guessed, this will not be a standalone product/agent but rather rolled into our existing products.
  6. Hello everyone! Malwarebytes wants to ensure that you have uninterrupted protection from malware — even on the very latest operating systems. We’re happy to announce that the following Malwarebytes products now officially support Windows 10: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free and Premium Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free and Premium Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Business Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit for Business Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Remediation Tool Malwarebytes Endpoint Security All of the above products have been tested and verified as working as expected on Windows 10, provided you have updated to the latest available version. You can check on the latest version of a product by visiting its release history page on our website at
  7. Paul, wonder if just the presence of the file (in encrypted form!) caused Windows to trigger a recovery. We do suggest decrypting the quarantined item using a clean machine and restoring it to Desktop and then copying over to affected machines and rebooting.
  8. Hi guys, this appears to be an isolated incident. If you're having issues contacting sales or support, go immediately to me and I'll get you routed;
  9. We've had issues prioritizing resources unfortunately, we are working on some interesting stuff though, but I don't have timelines . Maybe I'll pick up a compiler and work it over
  10. One of the biggest request from customers has been a version of Malwarebytes for the Mac. As of today, I'm happy to say that has officially changed with the announcement of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac! While we firmly believe that the threat landscape for Mac is not as mature as it is for Windows, there are still significant issues around the operating system. One prime example is the evolution of adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) which Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac detects and removes extremely well. I wanted to take a moment to introduce Thomas Reed, our new Director of Mac Offerings. We acquired Thomas' product called AdwareMedic and his blog The Safe Mac because we truly believed that his product was the best in the market. Thomas will lead us through the same battle on the Mac that we've been fighting on Windows for 7 years now. A post from him will follow mine. For the time being, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac is only a removal tool. It will scan for, and remove adware, PUPs, and various types of malware, and it will do it all for free if you're a home user. If you're a business user, just fill out a form here and we'll let you know when we have a business version. I'm very excited to have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac join our portfolio of products and to have Thomas on the team .
  11. If you upgraded to 2.1.8 with no problems, your license was legitimate and will continue to report correctly to our licensing system for life.
  12. Hi everyone, I never do this, but I'm going to close this thread before it turns into a silly fight. We decided to give a small number of licenses out because we weren't certain of the key source and we didn't want to harm those who may have bought it on eBay or another legitimate source but from a illegitimate person. If you truly feel cheated and want a refund, just message me. We'll give you back your money and turn off your license key. We really are trying to do right by our users, and that includes those that may have been hurt by someone other than us. EDIT: This is the type of situation we were trying to solve for.
  13. I think the original question is around the perpetual license. If you bought a lifetime license in 2010 it will still be a lifetime license today, even after you upgrade to 2.1.8.
  14. That is indeed one reason why we're being generous. We realize some people paid someone for a pirated key. When the next stage comes, we will feel a lot better about who we've licensed correctly and we will be able to tighten more down.
