    Latest Version of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware

    BETA 7 Version:
    Release Date: June 10th 2016

    Information and Download:

    Introducing Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware - Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta - Malwarebytes Forums

    This is only available for new downloads to start, but we'll enable upgrades for current users later this week. If you're running an earlier beta, you can always download and install Beta 6 on top of your current version.

    Change Log for Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware (BETA) Known Issue:

    • If installing the upgrade on Windows 8.1 x64 over a previous Beta, the service may not start automatically. In this case, simply click Start Protection on the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware dashboard or run the Beta installer a second time.


    • New ransomware variants of DMA Locker, CryptoXXX and CryptoJoker are now detected
    • Improved remediation, including ability to kill a process and more complete removal of ransomware traces
    • Performance improvements to prevent high CPU and memory usage
    • Further enhancements to prevent false positives
    • Added tray icon status indicator whenever protection is disabled
    • Added version information to About page to indicate specific component package installed
    • Enhanced messaging after a BETA has expired so that it's clear a new version should be installed
    • Updated the dialog message shown when attempting to restore a file marked for deletion to clarify that restoring cannot proceed until after the reboot

    Issues Fixed:

    • Fixed issue where shutdown times increased after installing Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware
    • Fixed issue where Microsoft Office applications would only open files as Read Only
    • Fixed issue where detections were triggered on an excluded process
    • Fixed issue where Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware was not the active window immediately after installation
    • Fixed issue where resizing a column in a table could make it disappear from view
    • Fixed issue when deleting multiple items from quarantine where only half of the items were actually deleted
    • Fixed issue where quarantined items were not always listed in chronological order after restoring or deleting items from the list

    Release history

    Release Notes:

    We’re happy to announce that our latest MBAM patch release, MBAM, was released today. You may download MBAM from this link.

    We’ll be enabling automatic upgrades for current users beginning next week. If you’d like to upgrade before then, simply download the new version from the link above and install.

    Here's the full list of What’s New in v. 2.2.1--


    • Context Menu scanning option is now enabled by default. Note if you had this option disabled previously and want to retain that setting, you must disable again manually this one time only. Future updates will retain the setting properly
    • Improved renewal experience for those who purchased in retail store so that the original license key is retained post-renewal instead of requiring that a new key be entered and activated
    • Improved End of Trial experience so it is clear that trial has expired and real-time protection is no longer available
    • Added additional license checks to ensure subscription details are updated as quickly as possible after a renewal is processed
    • Updated company and product logos with new logo
    • For Premium subscription licenses, removed Renew button from My Account screen to avoid confusion over license term

    Issues Fixed:

    • Fixed security vulnerability to ensure database updates are downloaded over SSL connections only
    • Fixed crash that occurred if Dell Backup and Recovery software was installed on same system
    • Fixed issue where scheduled scan did not honor weekly recurrence properly
    • Fixed issue where license expiration notices were incorrectly displaying multiple times in rapid succession
    • Fixed issue where the Scheduler would continue to run in certain cases after a trial had expired
    • Fixed issue where the update progress bar on the Dashboard would appear to hang and would never complete
    • Several improvements to Chameleon self-protection

    Saw this on MBAM site and I show it on my system also.

    Running Windows 8 Pro RTM and the MBAM log shows Windows 7.
