Malwarebytes Introduces Anti-Exploit

June 21, 2014

Malwarebytes has unveiled the launch of Malwarebytes Anti- Exploit, a new technology designed to protect companies and home users from the threat of known and unknown zero-day exploits, which effectively bypass traditional security software.

According to a Company release, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is designed to protect against vulnerabilities in mass-market applications such as browsers, Java, document readers, media players and others. These vulnerabilities are increasingly targeted by malicious actors as part of Advanced Persistent Threats and used to breach corporations and target critical infrastructure. They are also used to infect personal computers with banking trojans and ransomware.

The Company said that Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit for Business can be deployed in any organization through the new Malwarebytes Management Console, providing management and centralized reporting of all protected endpoints. Home users have access to a free version that protects against vulnerabilities in browsers, add-ons and Java, or a Premium version, which adds additional protection for PDF readers, Microsoft Office and media players, and allows users to add protection for custom third-party applications.

Malwarebytes noted that its Anti-Exploit stops known and unknown zero-day exploits by using technology to protectively 'shield' at- risk applications and stop them from executing malicious code without relying on whitelisting, blacklisting or sandboxing.

Marcin Kleczynski, Malwarebytes' CEO, said, "Exploits have been responsible for a lot of headlines recently as they are a highly effective way of stealing confidential data from people and businesses. After researching thousands of vulnerabilities and exploits, we are confident that Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit will help mitigate some of this risk."

Malwarebytes provides software designed to protect consumers and businesses against malicious threats.
