Today we have released the beta of our next-generation product, Malwarebytes 3.0! This product is built to provide comprehensive protection against today’s threat landscape so that you can finally replace your traditional antivirus.

Our engineers have spent the last year building this product from the ground up and have combined our Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit, Anti-Ransomware, Website Protection, and Remediation technologies all into a single product which we simply call “Malwarebytes.” And it scans your computer 3-4 times faster!

When we launch Malwarebytes 3.0, we are confident that you can finally replace your traditional antivirus, thanks to our innovative and layered approach to preventing malware infections using a healthy combination of proactive and signature-less technologies. While signatures are still effective against threats like potentially unwanted programs, the majority of our malware detection events already come from our signature-less technologies like our Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware; that trend will only continue to grow. For many of you, this is something you already know, since over 50% of our customers already run Malwarebytes as their sole security software, without any third-party antivirus. But rest assured, we will continue to support compatibility if you choose to use a third-party antivirus or other security software alongside Malwarebytes 3.0.

With the combination of our Anti-Malware ($24.95), Anti-Exploit ($24.95) and Anti-Ransomware (free, beta) technologies, we will be selling Malwarebytes 3.0 at $39.99 per computer per year, 20% less than our previous products combined and 33% less than an average traditional antivirus. As we did with our change from perpetual to subscription, we will grandfather in existing customers at their current price. We are still working out the details, but I assure you we will take care of all existing customers. As always, we will be keeping malware remediation absolutely free.

If you have any questions, please read the short FAQ below first and then ask away in this forum! Remember, this is beta software and should be used with caution.

Wow. Combining 3-in-1 Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware and can finally replace your traditional antivirus. Sure or not? Are they using AI of some sort? Only their Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware are using signature-less technologies, how about their Anti-Malware?

Recently, MalwareBytes announced of their aggressive fight against PUPs. Is this aggressiveness being build-in as well?

Just downloaded and took a spin. Pretty impressive.

But their trial for the beta ends in 13 days. So the final will be ready then for purchase?


Ha....ha....it identified VoodooShield's driver updater as a PUP! It also identified 2 SpyHunter registry entries as PUPs too.
