If you use MalwareBytes you need to be aware of a recent MalwareBytes update issue that could cause the software to disappear from your computer.
What Is MalwareBytes?
I highly recommend MalwareBytes for securing personal computers. That includes Macs, btw. MWB has been a mainstay of my security suite for years.
What Is The Problem?
Two of my clients using MalwareBytes reported a problem with it. They checked their computers and found that MalwareBytes was nowhere to be found. It had recently been installed and running in both cases.
Turns out that under some circumstances MWB threw an error during an automatic update which left the machine without MWB installed. MWB support is aware of the issue and working on a fix. It may very well be fixed by now. They’re good that way, which is one of many reasons I recommend MWB.
Action to Take
If you are using MalwareBytes, please check your computer to be sure it’s still installed and running.
If you’re not using MalwareBytes, I highly recommend you add it to your security toolkit.
Stay safe out there!
