Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50

The Malwarebytes team is excited to announce the release of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50. This version features many security, performance, stability and functionality improvements, and is without a doubt our best release yet.

This release represents a major update to the Malwarebytes software: the change log may be found here.

You may get the new version either through the existing Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware interface (click Check for Updates!) or by visiting:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

The Malwarebytes team would like to thank all participants in the 1.50 beta project. We are very excited about the result!

New Features

We are very excited about the major improvements in Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50. This version represents a complete overhaul of much of our functionality. Among the highlights are:

  • Dramatically improved scan speed: up to 3-5 times faster on many machines.
  • Dramatically improved stability of both the scanner and Protection Module (Free and PRO versions, respectively).
  • More responsive: program loads up to 3 times faster, and protection module has lower impact on system resources (PRO version only).
  • New internal detection algorithms enable detection of more real-world malware.

  • You can now add files and folders to the ignore list manually.
  • Ability to schedule and unschedule scans and updates from the command line (PRO version only).
  • Notifications of blocked malicious websites now include additional details such as type, port, and process on Windows Vista and higher.
  • Dramatically improved flash scan (PRO version only) -- determine whether a more in-depth scan is needed, in less than 10 seconds on many machines.
  • One-touch easy-to-use option to keep protection up-to-date automatically (PRO version only).
  • "Warn if database is outdated by:" option now warns if the database is far out-of-date (7 days by default), including for protection (PRO version only).

Backwards-Compatibility Support Policy

Malwarebytes urges all customers in the strongest possible language to plan an update path to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50. The stability and security improvements in this version are staggering, and although we will support older versions of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (see below), simply put: you will not be as well-protected with older versions as you will be with 1.50.

We will support each version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware until one year after the release of its successor. So, we will support Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.46 (and all previous versions, which we will consider "grandfathered-in") until one year after the public release of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50. After that, we will require an update to 1.50 or later in order to provide support. We think this is a reasonable policy that balances both our need to keep our customers' software up-to-date, and our customers' need to ensure reliability in their own environments.

Please be patient as a lot depends on DNS caching. Most sites will automatically update within the next few hours. If you're in a hurry you can try changing to a different DNS temporarily to see if that helps your system to locate the new version.

Plus I see a 20% discount coupon there. :)

Question... I suppose it is advisable to uninstall v1.46 first before installing v1.50, or are the devs saying over-the-top installations are okay?

There is nothing wrong. It does a lot more work and requires more space in memory to accomplish everything.

Congratulations Malwarebytes' Staff, this release is awesome :)

I have just updated to v1.50 and it's scanning smoothly :)

Installation of the new build via the internal update mechanism does not preserve the old scan logs. This should be noted when announcing a new build for the sake of those that wish to have maintained their old scan logs.

Thanks.

Update from 1.50 beta?

Is it OK to update the beta or should we remove the beta, run the clean.exe and install the new 1.50 release ????????

THANKS

Wijllie, it installed fine over the beta version. :) You only have to reboot your PC.

It should be okay to update over the top of the beta. If you do notice any issues though then you may wish to try doing a full removal reinstall cleanly.

Regardless of how the program is installed a reboot is required to ensure proper operation.
