VoodooShield / Info on Version 4 from Dan @ Malwaretips Forum

Hehehe, how funny ;). I actually just now finished VS 4.0, and all that is left to do is to migrate the users from the old database to the new one, so that VS will hopefully register properly for everyone... that is really the only thing I am concerned about. It should go pretty well though, and I should be finished with it sometime tonight or tomorrow.

Sorry that this took a lot long than I initially thought... but I kept adding and tweaking stuff... even Alex was telling me that I needed to wrap it up and release it ;).

There are a few things that I need to let you guys know. The web management console is ready, but Alex had to wait on me to finish up my part before he can implement all of the features. The important thing is that it is up and running... and it will not take him long at all to add all of the new features and settings to the WMC that I added to VS. The better news... my part is done!!!!!! That was a rough 2 or so months, but it was also a heck of a lot of fun. Everything went really well for the most part... especially considering all of the changes that were made. Obviously there will be a few small bugs or adjustments that we will need to make, but overall, VS 4.0 is extremely solid... it has never ran so well.

The only "bad" news is that I completely reworked all of the databases, it is going to be difficult or impossible to migrate settings and whitelists from VS 3.0 to VS 4.0. It might be possible, but it is probably best that everyone start with new databases... they changed significantly. Besides, VS auto trains even faster than before.

Also, the new rules feature turned out well beyond my expectations. I even implemented the feature where you guys can share your rulesets with each other... it will be interesting what all rules that you guys come up with to limit blocks as much as possible, while still remaining secure. The rules feature is centered around Allow Rules... the idea being that we create rules to safely allow as much good stuff as possible, without putting the system at risk. You can also create Block Rules, but they will not be used nearly as much as the Allow Rules.

Anyway, this is just the first implementation of the rules feature... I think we can expand it the concept a lot. The whole idea being that users should be able to design their own custom AV engine, very quickly and easily. I mean, you can write an entire ruleset in the matter of minutes. There are tons of other features and little tweaks that I included as well, but just never got around to implementing them. Finally, a couple of months ago I decided to just go for it... and I am really happy how everything turned out, and hopefully you guys will be too.

Anyway, I am excited for you guys to try it! As soon as I am finished migrating all of the users, I will post VS 4.0... possibly tonight, but if not for sure tomorrow or Monday at the very, very latest. Thank you guys!

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – October 19, 2016 – Malwarebytes™, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, today announced the acquisition of AdwCleaner, one of the world’s most frequently downloaded tools for removing potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), adware, toolbars and other unwanted software.

Consumers and businesses download AdwCleaner more than 200,000 times per day, making it one of the most downloaded products on many sites. Installed around 200 million times, AdwCleaner has proven effective against bloatware, questionable software and specific types of malware.

The AdwCleaner story mirrors that of Malwarebytes in many ways. Founded in 2011 by three 17 year-old French students, AdwCleaner quickly grew in popularity over the years. Jérôme Boursier and Corentin Chepeau, two of the founders who have been continued their involvement while attending university in France, released the sixth major version in 2016. Ever since, the two developers have helped it grow quickly across the world. Both Boursier and Chepeau will now join Malwarebytes in engineering and research roles.
