Hello and welcome to the Malwarebytes test!

Malwarebytes is a well-known American antimalware company.
Formerly used in computer disinfection, Malwarebytes has created a certain confidence in various Internet users, that the program has evolved to compete with the antivirus community.

The interface is very clear and pleasant. Several defensive shields are present such as anti-exploit, AI Machine Learning detection, Anti-Ransomware protection etc.
For this test, we activate the advanced detection to give it all its chances.

Clearly, Malwarebytes in detection, is good. Very good indeed!
Its anti-malware engine and its web filtering prove its reputation!
On the other hand, Malwarebytes is unfortunately not to be used alone as the main protection.
Even if some attacks have been repelled (the VBS scripts could not connect to their servers, so could not download their active loads), the machine is compromised by a computer virus that damaged several executable files...

Of course Malwarebytes has made great progress, but we advise you to use it as a secondary protection next to an anti-virus or HIPS software.

Watch my review on Odysee !

RAM Usage : Low
Malware URL test : 10/10 (all detected)
Fake crack : 1/1 (detected)
Malware Pack : Remaining 18 files to 309.
Many attacks are blocked by Malwarebytes (VBS scripts blocked by web filtering, Magniber Ransomware blocked, Jrat blocked by anti-exploit etc).

Unfortunately, 3 computer viruses were not blocked and were enough to infect the executable files of the machine.
The PC is compromised.

Resistance to script attacks: Yes but not those of the viruses

Result :
MBAM : 0
NPE : The base file has been infected. After reinstallation, 7
KVT : 14

Recommand : Yes, but as a secondary layer of protection
System Clean : No, system infected
