How many would be duped into buying their Premium version? Do you still use the most commonly exploited software? Do you use out-dated versions?

Hitmanpro. alert 3 has more features then it. They will release a free version & paid version & best thing is if u have hitman pro license then u can use it on hitmanpro. alert 3. They said the beta will release end of this month.

Just some hype, that's all.
Why not just integrate MBAE into MBAM as one of its components?
Guess they just need your money. For this purpose, they would just split every different type of protection into a single product and charge you separately. It's a shame.

Anti-Exploit products are nothing but jokes, they only can protect your system if you are too foolish to keep your software updated.
They can not protect your system from unknown vulnerabilities in updated software, therefore they are useless.


Most exploited software has auto updates functions and very easy to install latest versions.

Thanks. :D

360 Internet Security does the job so ... useless for me. There are FREE products that protect you :)

I will give my answer in the form of some simple shellcode:

Code:
\x31\xc0\x40\x89\xc3\xcd\x80
Which translates to the following assembly:

Code:
xor eax, eax    ; Resets eax to 0. Faster compared to mov eax, 0
inc eax 1         ; Set eax to 1
mov ebx, eax   ; Set ebx to 1 too
int 0x80           ; Make the system call with eax & ebx arguments set
Which translates to the following function call:

Code:
exit(1)
And "exit" is exactly what I would be doing, followed by "uninstalling" having relied naively on this program to protect me from exploits, consequently let my guard down thinking I am now invincible, only to be "surprised" when I get infected from opening a PDF exploit which for some reason hasn't been detected.

Sorry Malwarebytes, but since you launched Malwarebytes 2, I'm not a fan anymore :(
