    Latest Version Malwarebytes Anti Exploit


    I do not use, but Malwarebytes Anti Exploit is a popular tool for browser protection. Not sure if it provides a warning icon for search results.

    FYI, With the launch of Malwarebytes 3.0 last week, MBAE is now officially incorporated into the new product.

    MBAE Free as a standalone has now moved to "perpetual beta" status.

    More info here:
    MBAE Standalone Malwarebytes 3.0 Release - Anti-Exploit Beta - Malwarebytes Forums

    Another option is HitmanPro Alert, as mentioned in my earlier reply.

    Cheers,

    Does MBAE now support 64 bit browsers. No browser would open the last time I tried it 2 weeks ago.

    You do realise that the ratings are community driven, so these services are not really that accurate. They are someones point of view and many users may not be that savvy.

    It is better to use a reliable security program such as Malwarebytes to flag them up for you.

    Thank you, but I do not think Malwarebytes Anti Exploit is free. I have never paid for any software so far and Avira Browser Safety is free and probably OK for identifying some bad sites.

    Hi, Chrome extension WOT is probably going out of business, it has some serious privacy issues and is already removed from the Chrome Web Store.
    I have been using it for many years and feel lost without it.
    Can someone suggest a replacement for this tool....?
    Thanks,-BBDS
    Good news. Bad news.

    • Good news: WOT may not be going out of business. Or, at least, for the reasons you think.
    • Bad news: Firefox and Chrome removed the extension form their store after a German newspaper reported that WOT was selling the browsing history of its users without even bothering to anonymize the data!


    Yikes!!
    - Web of Trust (WOT) Add-on taken down by Chrome & Firefox
    - Mozilla and Google remove WOT extension from Store

    Sorry, but that is not correct.

    Prior to the launch of Malwarebytes 3.0, there were 2 versions of MBAE:
    • Free -- protected most common browsers and plug-ins
    • Premium -- protected all of those, plus a wide-range of internet-facing applications (email clients, "Office"-type programs, etc.), plus the ability to shield any internet-facing application


    With the launch of Malwarebytes 3.0, MBAE Premium has become part of Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium.
    MBAE Free has been moved to "perpetual beta" status (similar to Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit beta) and (now) Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware beta.

    See here:

    MBAE Standalone & Malwarebytes 3.0 Release


    So, yes, the "free", standalone version will remain and is still available, as MBAE-Beta. See here, as well.
    The current BETA build -- free and available for download from a special link -- is announced here:

    MBAE 1.09 preview

    Needless to say, the company can change their products and policies at any time.
    But that is how it stands now.

    However, there is at least one other paid alternative, HitmanPro Alert.

    Thanks,

    MM
