Malwarebytes, best Anti-Malware program yet?
« on: December 15, 2013, 01:08:38 AM »
So, No doubt Malwarebytes is AWESOME. But just how awesome is it?

I recently did some testing with Steven on some undetected viruses from Avast!. (And some deteced ones as well). I launched 6 random files. The result is 737 "Objects detected" And the scan isn't even done yet. I'll post logs and an OTL scan when stuff is done. But oh my dear good god. I haven't seen a file count that high since I met my friends computer which is used on Piratebay and uTorrent. (500 Objects, ALL PUP).

Note: 85k objects scanned + 8minutes in.

Edit: It's done. ALL my exe files were disabled for a while. SF /w CMD Prompt is awesome.!

Yep. Malwarebytes is awesome.

Thats wh the malware experts are using it to clean the PCs here. :)

Its also a good idea to use the PRO Version of it. Thats detects PUPs which Avast and others wouldnt detect.

It would be good to delete the malware pack before running the scan. :)

There are a ton of PUPs, Adware.Agents, some Spyware, ZeroAccess Rootkits, Trojans, Worms, Ransomware,
Backdoors, Malware packer and riskware.

So almost everything that you can get, i hope you made a snapshot. ;)

@Pondus, thats what i mean cause it protects you in realtime, and many people forget to update in free version.

The snapshot = death. I used the snapshot. Forgot to change over. I'm hating myself right now for it. :(. Someone wanna make an OTL script for me to clean it up? Lol. You don't have to. Just be nice to have a clean VM for once so I don't set another one up....

Just set up one with Java, Flash, Firefox, Chrome, Updates and programs and take a snapshot under machine tab
of Virtualbox when its running.

I had a snapshot like this some time but i was an idiot and deleted it.  :-[

If you created the OTL Log after the MBAM Scan, there is still some PUP stuff in the system.

If you are on the home screen of Virtualbox you can choose Snapshots on the top right.

But i need to check that, i havent used Virtualbox some time now.

MBAM was run before OTL. So PUP is still there. MBAM isn't finding it. Same as it isn't detecting 149 of the files still sitting here....

One of which is a .exe file....
