The recently released Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit version 1.0 uses three layers of defense to protect home and business users from known and unknown zero-day exploits. I remind you that such exploits are known for their ability to bypass traditional security software.

Malwarebytes is running a giveaway to celebrate the launch of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.0. You have the chance to win one of 10 Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit T-shirts or 10 licenses of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium.

I reviewed Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit way back in the fall of 2013. At the time, the application was still a Beta. This is no longer the case. The security tool graduated from Beta and has just recently been rolled out at as a stable, 1.0 version. If you stayed away from Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit because it carried the Beta tag, you need not stay away anymore.

Go get the application – available for download right here on
FindMySoft – and use it to protect your PC from known and unknown zero-day exploits.

“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,” said Marcin Kleczynski, Malwarebytes’ CEO.



Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit 1.0 uses three separate layers of defense to protect against known and unknown zero-day exploits that affect browsers, documents readers, media players, and other applications.

“With these three layers working in harmony with one another, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit has the necessary sophistication to counteract today’s increasingly complex targeted zero-day attacks, which are often more advanced than the security software trying to stop them,” said Malwarebytes in a press release.

Hackers and other people with malicious intent use zero-day exploits to infect personal PCs with banking Trojans and ransomware. They also use them to breach corporations, target critical infrastructure, conduct cyber-espionage, and carry out large-scale data theft. Such exploits are particularly dangerous because they can bypass traditional security software. You see, traditional security software relies on signatures to detect exploits.

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit does not require any signatures – it uses shielding techniques instead.



Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is available as a Free, Premium, and Business edition.
