Anyone know the CPU overhead for Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware? I'm running it now. If it watches every program execute, does it slow your system?


Motivation for this is a zillion malware evidences, like  crss.exe that does continual disk I/O, but no crss.exe on the disk,... I'll post a separate thread and describe it.  Surely someone's seen all this before.


Also, what does "watch another process for ransomware" mean? Does it breakpoint the AES instructions or what?

Those questions would be better answered by the developer (Nathan). You can ask at the official Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta Support Forum.

BTW...Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit & Anti-Ransomware both have been incorporated into the new Malwarebytes 3.0.
