The main purpose of the digital certificate is to ensure that the application belongs to the entity to which the certificate was issued. The Malwarebytes Corporation digital certificate does not guarantee that a signed application is safe to run, but rather informs the user that the software was digitally signed by Malwarebytes Corporation and verified by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a computer application that finds and removes malware. Made by Malwarebytes Corporation, it was released in January 2008. It is available in a free version, which scans for and removes malware when started manually, and a paid version, which provides scheduled scans, real-time protection and a flash memory scanner. Malwarebytes is intended to find malware that other antivirus and antispyware programs generally miss, including rogue security software, adware, and spyware. Malwarebytes therefore does not interfere with existing antivirus and -spyware programs on the computer. Malwarebytes is available in both a free and a paid edition. www.malwarebytes.org
About (from Malwarebytes Corporation at www.malwarebytes.org)
“Malwarebytes is community. Malwarebytes is technology. Malwarebytes is a belief that every person has a fundamental right to a malware-free existence. Malwarebytes grew from a single person to a team of extremely motivated and highly caffeinated developers, researchers and staff members. Today, Malwarebytes is a leading provider of anti-malware solutions to consumers and businesses alike. With a global research team working around the clock, millions of Malwarebytes’ users can sleep soundly (we don’t!) knowing their computer is protected.
Malwarebytes would like to be located deep underground in an airtight bunker accessible only through a secret underwater cave with at least three steel-plated airlocks. Instead, Malwarebytes has offices in San Jose, California. They do not have any airlocks but the office vacuum is extremely powerful.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO detects AND protects in an easy-to-use, straightforward, heavy-hitting but lightweight anti-malware application.”
