    This happens more often at MB than you'd think. A βeta package gets released to a few βeta testers in the wild, but never actually gets released worldwide as a βeta.

    I used to think (and this has happened as well, explicitly being affirmed by MB Staff) that it was always a situation where the βeta was released and then pulled from distribution because of some reason. Usually, MB staff would make a note of it when someone would (invariably) ask why someone else would have a screenshot of a version no one else had.

    That may very well be the case here, but it's also possible MB has started some sort of A/B testing method with βeta releases.

    Either way - it's always (theoretically) possible that a βeta release here or there can end up installed on only a few (relatively speaking) machine out in the wild.

    I'm just an enthusiast and old school tester for MB, and I've seen it numerous times. Porthos and other MB staff have probably seen it much more than I have. ANd we've even seen it here in 10F also, where someone would report a version that no one else (or only 1 or 2 people) has.

    So. rest assured that almost everyone here in this particular thread has seen this thing happen before and doesn't accuse someone of posting falsified information or lying in any way, manner or fashion. We all know this happens from time to time with MB.
    Thanks for the explanation John.

    Respectfully, if anyone is understandably concerned with their v4.4.1.119 beta, please consider an appropriate backup followed by an over-the-top reinstall with a known, genuine, current, release version (v4.4.0.117 - CU 1.0.1318) to ease your mind.

    I am quite certain that Malwarebytes will always appreciate the feedback from their alpha & beta testers. Despite outstanding in-house testing by devs & QA folk, the bitter price to be paid is always the possible risk of rare bricked/crippled/unstable/impaired system. Still, Malwarebytes' staffers/forum volunteers will always assist the unfortunates

    Perhaps this is a timely opportunity to remind those permitting beta versions that serious regressions (though rare) can occur. Personally, I would abstain from ANYONE'S beta if that computer is used in an enterprise/revenue environment, is the only computer in a family household, and especially so if an effective, working, backup plan is a foreign concept, etc.

    If I may add one item here..........

    If you wish to reinstall MBAM for any reason, the official Support Tool is the best way to go.

    I actually do agree with you but even with build 896's welcomed growth and nearly 3 months of successful use coupled with its obvious maturity, some are reluctant to run the MBST-Clean or MBST-Repair and already chafed at their imagined loss of privacy let alone their reaction to the M$ UAC popup which instantly raises their apprehensions followed by occasional abandonment of their forum thread without reply or they become less cooperative.

    But yes. MBST is preferred for MB4.

    As a serial βeta tester, I cannot agree with all of this enough. If you're not βeta testing with the intention of being able to fix something if it breaks (and report it regardless of if you can fix it or not) then you should not be using βeta builds, period. No matter how good a development team is, a βeta release is classified as βeta in the first place because there is a good possibility that it is not ready for consumption by the general public.

    Unfortunately, some people only ever equate βeta with "new and improved" over stable, which, while it can be, more often than not it is not.

    C'est la vie....

    Correct. You should expect the occasional issue with beta's and be prepared to report it. That said MB seems to have few issues on beta builds. I've had more issues with duff definitions than anything else.

    Yah. Their dev team is lightyears ahead of other (so-called) dev teams (I'm looking squarely at you, M$!) but things have broken before, even with MB. I've been right smack-dab in the middle of a couple of them.
