    How Malwarebytes came to be.
    I found this article at lifehacker, and thought you loyal Malwarebytes users might be interested:



    At the age of 14, Marcin Kleczynski had a problem: After downloading video games from shady online sources, he accidentally infected his family computer with malware. Who among us hasn’t faced that decidedly nerdy teenage crisis?

    Traditional antivirus software didn’t cut it and Marcin had to dig deep to find a solution to his malware problem. But from that exploration he evidently caught a different sort of bug as well, and continued to research malware and viruses out of curiosity while collaborating with other volunteers online.

    That hobby snowballed over the years as Marcin taught himself to code and what started out of necessity eventually grew to be its own product and company. Now Malwarebytes
    has a team of over 320 employees and its various products have been downloaded about half a billion times. Not a bad place to be for something that started on the family computer in the basement. We spoke with Marcin to learn a little more about his experience in the fight against malware.

    I have been using the free Malwarebytes since XP. It often catches PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) that my anti-virus misses. It has never caused any problems for XP, 7, 8, 8.1, or 10.

    The ransomware protection is very buggy.
    Finds false positives in my email.

    At one point it quarantined an email, then crashed the mail app.
    I could not get back into it without uninstalling the program.

    So just be carefull with this, its not prime time ready as in beta.

    Hello, all--
    It’s been a while, but we’ve been busy working on the best version of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware yet!
    BETA 8, v.0.9.17.661, has just been released.

    VERY IMPORTANT!!:

    Change Log for Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware (BETA) 0.9.17
    Improvements:

    • Further fine-tuned behavioral detection techniques
    • Main GUI now closes to the tray instead of only minimizing to the taskbar
    • Added support to allow exclusion of folders in addition to individual files
    • Performance improvements to prevent high CPU and memory usage
    • Further enhancements to prevent false positives
    • Numerous enhancements to harden the product against malicious tampering attempts
    • Added basic command line functions for Business version to allow ability to start or stop protection, add or remove exclusions and restore an item from quarantine
    • Created an MSI version of the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware installer for Business version (coming soon...)
    • Improved side-by-side usage with other Business versions of Malwarebytes products: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware v. 1.x and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit v. 1.x

    Issues Fixed:

    • Fixed a crash that could occur after a detection and required reboot
    • Fixed issue where deselecting rows in Quarantine did not work properly
    • Fixed issue where Dashboard showed mismatched protection state, e.g. showed as disabled even though it was properly enabled and active
    • Fixed issue where a detection alert would display with no detail populated

    Looking forward to your continued feedback here on the forum.
    Thanks!
