All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

Thank you for posting the announcement.

For those reading this topic, please note that this program is a beta version of a product and not completely tested to ensure its stability or reliability.


What is beta software?

After an initial round of in-house testing, software publishers often release new programs to be tested by the public. These pre-release versions are called beta software, usually denoted by a "b" in the version number, e.g., Netscape Navigator 2.0b5. Since the publisher couldn't possibly test the software under all possible conditions, it is reasonable to expect that wider use of the software may uncover problems that were not discovered during in-house testing. The publisher expects to be notified when users find such problems so that the program can be fixed before its official release.

In general, you should expect to run into bugs whenever using any piece of beta software. These bugs may range in severity from minor features that don't work to problems that cause your computer to crash. You should decide whether the benefit of new features in a beta program outweighs the risk of program instability before choosing to use a piece of beta software. You should also be aware ...you should not expect the same level of support as you would receive for an official release version of the program.


Beta version software is useful for internal demonstrations, testing and previews to select customers, but may be unstable and not yet ready for a release candidate stage. The goal of a beta program is to collect information regarding the performance, quality, stability, and functionality of new products in order to iron out the bugs before they are released to the general public as a stable final product. Beta software is not intended for inexperienced users since it may contain bugs ranging in severity from minor features not working properly to problems that may potentially damage your system. Not that I am implying you are inexperienced...just speaking generally. However, if you choose to use a beta program, you use it at your own risk.

Hi 1PW -

I have installed both the first and now the second (updated) versions.

The program seems to "travel quietly", and causes no problems so far -

 

Still waiting for MBAM Version 2 Full release (after running the trial version)

 

Regards -

Hello noknojon:  :)

 

I too believe this project is coming along very nicely. The MBAE developer (Pedro) is very quick to look into any issues we report.

 

I know you are a terrific longtime (2008) friend of the Malwarebytes forum.  Howerever, below is a link to the MBAE sub-forum for newcomers:

I'm still having issues with MBAE beta installed alongside HitmanPro Alert...it blocks both FF and IE from opening since it detects hmpalert_update.exe as an exploit. pbust was helping me troubleshoot. You can exclude in MBAE and it will allow Hitman.Pro to update. Last I read they will fix this issue soon.

Hello quietman7:

 

According to the changelog that accompanies 0.09.5.1000 BETA:

 

 

The changelog is the following:

• Added new techniques for protection from stage1 exploits.
• Added new techniques for protection from stage2 exploits.
• Added new technique for stage1 and stage2 memory protections.
• Added new hooking of certain Windows 8.x specific functions.
• Added more verbose logging.
• Fixed bug with Acrobat Reader shield.
• Fixed bug installing MBAE in x64 systems where WinDir is in non-C drive.
• Fixed bug "missing MSVCP100D.DLL" when uninstalling MBAE.
• Fixed bug with excluding HitmanPro.Alert upgrades.
• Fixed bug with negative shielded applications counter.
• Fixed issue with Chrome extensions crash when stopping/starting MBAE.

I'm currently running MBAE 0.09.5.1000 BETA on my main desktop using W7 Pro SP1 64-bit OEM w/all recent updates and hmp.ALERT 2.5.6.65, and I'm posting this through Firefox 26.0 while I have IE10 opened on another web site.  The only exploit alert I've had recently, is the one I've forced through the mbae-test.exe tool.

 

When you have time, perhaps a note to pbust with your current status might be helpful.  :)

Forget all this computer stuff.

 

With the nasty weather on you or headed your way, I hope you and yours will be safe and warm!
