Software Update: MalwareBytes 4.4.4.228

Malwarebytes has released version 4.4.4 of its eponymous antivirus program. This program is aimed at fighting malware, such as malicious software that pretends to be a bona fide antivirus or antispyware solution, but in reality has less good intentions, such as ransom– or scareware. In addition to the free version, there is a paid variant, which offers additional functionality, including real-time protection. The changelog for this release looks like this:
