Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free, Premium and Business Stable Released

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Most of us are already familiar with Malwarebytes’ anti-malware capabilities … and now they’ve released a stable version of their anti-exploit solution too.

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Beta has been available to anyone interested in the product for some time now. I have reviewed the security program back in 2013 when it was made available publicly for the first time and came to the conclusion that it could become a great addition to the security tools that you are running on your Windows PC. In fact, I’m running it along with EMET and have not noticed any issues doing so. Malwarebytes on the other hand advises users against this as it can create conflicts.


Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Update Improves Exploit Protection

This seems like a step in the right direction; even though this is just a beta/test version, those drive-by download attacks can be a real pain to get rid of.

Malwarebytes recently released a first public beta version of Anti-Exploit, an exploit mitigation tool for Windows that works very similar to Microsoft’s Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit. The program steps in when exploits bypass the first and second line of security of a computer system. So, instead of allowing the exploit to run on the system, they are blocked from doing so by anti-exploit software.
