Why Malwarebytes for Mac

As some of you may have already seen, we released Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac last week. Prior to the release of the new product, I was of the mindset that Macs were not vulnerable to malware. So what changed my mind? Doug Swanson, my former CTO at Malwarebytes (and current board member!) e-mailed me about a cool product called AdwareMedic he […]

Location, Location, Location!

Sounds like something a real estate agent would shout at you while selling you a house, right? Well, sort of. Just like a grocer may perform a location survey to determine the best place for their store, i.e. the corner versus in a back alley, as an entrepreneur starting a business it is absolutely critical to choose your location. […]

Malwarebytes Makes Appearance on The Office

I like to have background noise as I answer work e-mails. Typically, I leave Netflix streaming and every so often I glance at the television. While watching The Office, I noticed something very interesting. If you look at the bottom right corner of the screen, on the monitor, you’ll see Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed on the […]

Malwarebytes Launches Enterprise Edition

Forgive my absence, I’ve been chained to a headset on several press calls per day for the last few weeks. Now that the press tour is basically over, I’m able to happily announce the launch of an exciting new product, Malwarebytes Enterprise Edition. This thing is awesome. Seriously. So much work has gone into this product […]

Launch of Malwarebytes Gear Store

It’s been a while since my last post. Unfortunately, I’ve been really busy and the only thing I have to show for it is the launch of our Malwarebytes gear store. So far it’s only t-shirts, but more to come. I definitely got some weird looks at Defcon while wearing the “eater of bytes” shirt. […]

Mysterious Case of the Broken Browser

A friend of mine asked me to take a look as to why Google and Bing were inaccessible using Firefox. I dove in and realized that they were also unreachable using Internet Explorer, Chrome, and even command line ping. It became apparent that the hosts file had been hijacked. In fact, these entries were the […]

Marcin Freezin’ for a Reason

I apologize for the lapse in posts in the last couple of weeks. Last week I was at RSA and the weekend before that I was jumping into a freezing lake. Seriously. In the weeks leading up to my February 25th Polar Plunge, many Malwarebytes employees eagerly donated to the cause. The pitch? Watch your CEO […]

What? Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Retail Boxes!

I was chatting with a few friends who knew what I did and loved using our product. Somehow the topic of selling Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in brick and mortar stores came up. I told them that this was already being done for a year and they were shocked. I guess this isn’t that well known. I […]

Malwarebytes Brand Exploited Through Search

It’s not often that I search for the term Malwarebytes on Google. I know how to get to my own company’s website by typing it into the address bar. However, when a friend or family member asks me how to get to our website, I almost always instruct them to search. Unfortunately, there exists a […]

Mysterious Case of the Executable Hijack

I got a message from my friend Paul today asking for help with an infection. He was using the latest version of Firefox at the time and was positive he did not click on any odd links or downloaded anything malicious. Naturally, I advised him to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and had him send me the […]
