Hello and welcome to the Malwarebytes v5 BETA test!
Malwarebytes is a well known American company. Widely used in the world of disinfection, Malwarebytes also has a PRO version to protect your computer. With each version, the editor adds new features to get closer to an antivirus software.
The interface has totally changed but remains simple and accessible. In the Premium Plus version, Malwarebytes integrates a VPN in partnership with Mullvad. I activated it for the test and it is very fast.
In this test, for the first one, I leave it by default, but I activate the detection of penetration attacks during a bonus test.
On URLs, nothing to say, Malwarebytes is very solid, also on the dropper of the fake crack. It's a pity that you have to run the program for the Malwarebytes resident to detect. I would have liked it to detect as soon as the malware arrived.
On the pack we note an improvement of Malwarebytes on the anti-malware detection! Malwarebytes blocks several malicious connections made by Trojans, Botnets and malicious scripts but the machine is still infected.
For the Bonus test, I decide to activate the new Malwarebytes feature and I focus on the pack only.
Malwarebytes does a little better by preventing malicious scripts from installing themselves and creating their entries at startup, however, it does not bring much for the moment in terms of security. Malwarebytes was already blocking malicious connections.
Malwarebytes is a very good security software but should not be used alone because it lacks behavioral shields. It is an excellent complement to some antivirus programs like WiseVector or even Microsoft Defender.
RAM Usage : Light
Malware URL test : 10/10 (All blocked)
Fake crack : 1/1 (detected)
Malware Pack : Remaining 21 files out of 193.
Malwarebytes has improved its AI detection and malware recognition. It also blocks several malicious connections.
However, it will not be able to defend sufficiently against 0-day malware alone. It should be used as a complement.
Resistance to script attacks: Average
