Contrary to popular belief and some of the download sites, the latest version of Malwarebytes is not free. It is, at best, a trial version in which many crucial features--like real-time protection and anti-ransomware--become disabled after a certain period of time.

If you don't want the paid version, stick with 2.21 version and use Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit which are still free.  I see a little slight of hand going on here with the so-called "free" version of Malwarebytes. ::) ???

I'll just wait to see what happens with the addon incompatibility. I have too many that I like to search for work-arounds, etc. :( ::)

Too bad they couldn't fix all the now inoperable addons that can no longer be used.  :( >:( ??? ::)

This will be another Pale moon I will not and cannot use. I am still with 26.5.

Who is thinking about Firefox again, besides me? :'(

I don't see where changing the Gecko part would affect the addons and, two, I have checked for other similar extension and they are not available, or are not as good. So, I will stick to 26.5 because all the extensions work fine with this one exception-- Adblock Latitude, but I don't need that because I can use Adguard which is very good.

I like Pale Moon but I'm going jump through hoops, doing without my precious addons because of this major change. Easy come, easy go.

Oh, I got another avatar which I hope doesn't shape up the forum with malware.  :-[

Just one of those old Freedomlist leftovers I guess.

Corrine, I havee quite a few incompatibles, so it is not much help to try to track down alternatives because I have already tried and they are just ot the same--or even close. I'll jst wait to see if further ""improvements are made to the version 27 dwn the road. :( :o

I tried the new version 27 and I uninstalled it. Several of my extensions are incompatible and, alas, there re no good alternatives. How sad.  I have to say that after using it, I will be stick to the 26.5, in spite of all the "improvements"of the version 27.

I've used Pale moon since 2013, liked its speed, etc. but this is one time I have to draw the line. Unless Moonchild and company can make several more addons compatible, I'll have to use the older version and alternatives. And believe me,  I've checked hard for addon alternatives >:( :( :o ::) :'(

For those of you who still use Zone Alarm, they just released an updated anti-vrus/firewall.

I've been using this program and it does a good job and doesn't eat a lot of resources.

Hi 2harts4ever:

I just use the free version and then go to a site and download the updated version of thr program that needs it. Don't pay for the "premium" version of Sumo if you can help it.

I am beginning to think Sumo is more responsive in finding updates on programs than Secunia which isn't quite as responsive as the older versions. There are, sure enough, other similar programs but they aren't as thorough or a s comprehensive as Sumo and Secunia.

Your best bet would be to keep on constant alert about updates on programs on the internet.  I check sites like Majorgeeks, Snapfiles, Filehorse, Frewwarefiles, Filepuma and Downloadcrew. That's the key.  Sometimes your best approach would be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," where if the program is working already, don't mess with it.

The decision is up to you. Good luck.

Hi 2harts4ever:

I would highly recommend Sumo, which is Windows 10 compatible. I find that it
s very quick, and for the most part, works well.  ;)

One sticking point is, sometimes it puts beta versions on their list, even when you don't ask for them but I can get by that by checking other sites like Majorgeeks and Snapfiles.

Gee, Captain, I'm glad you weren't referring to me. ;) :o

This is Darksurfer.

I remember when I started at FL. I got into some raher interesting discussions with certain members about, albeit, political things, which, looking back, was really silly on my part.

But I did get a lot of useful information about ISPs, products, free and other things. I offered advice, when needed to fellow members. Wow, FL had been in existence since 2000. Wow, am I getting old. ???

This forum here reminds me of the old FL in many ways.

RIP Freedomlist 2000-2016

Security Software Programs / Re: CryptoPrevent discussion

I've gone back and forth with Cryptoprevent but I am staying with the free current version of this program. I used Hitmanpro Alert2.5.77 version but the fly outs stopped working on all the previous browsers--Firefox and Pa e Moon, for reasons I still don't understand.

Has anyone else noticed this with Hitmanpro. I also use Spyshelter which is an excellent software. Gotta keep those ransom ware bay as much as possible.

Today is the first day of the Chinese year of the Monkey.

For those who don't know any thing about this kind of zodiac, here is a little background.

As for myself, I am a Dog.

What sign are you?

I'm glad I included "Or at least we can hope to see the end of it." when I started this thread.  From the same article that siljaliane provided above, note the quotes from Jérôme Segura, Malwarebytes security researcher.  So, with the open source HTML5, we may not be any/much better off than with Adobe maintaining Flash.

Well, we can always dream about it, can't we? ::) :o

I am glad that Flash is slowly ending or at least being marginalized but there are still plenty of sites that require it. Especially video rich sites, which are many. I put flash on ask mode on my Pale Moon and Firefox browsers.
