November 2, Malwarebytes has recently uncovered evidence that a company called IOBit based in China is stealing and incorporating our proprietary database and intellectual property into their software. We know this will sound hard to believe, because it was hard for us to believe at first too. But after an indepth investigation, we became convinced it was true.
November 2, Malwarebytes has recently uncovered evidence that a company called IOBit based in China is stealing and incorporating our proprietary database and intellectual property into their software. We know this will sound hard to believe, because it was hard for us to believe at first too. But after an indepth investigation, we became convinced it was true. Here is how we know. We came across a post on the IOBit forums cached version , since they have now deleted the original that showed IOBit Security flagging a specific key generator for our Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware software using the exact naming scheme we use to flag such keygens: A, File, G: We quickly became suspicious.
Either the forum post was fraudulent or IOBit was stealing our database. So we dug further. We accumulated more similar evidence for other detections, and we soon became convinced that this was not a mistake, it was not a coincidence, it was not an isolated event, and it persisted presently in their current database.
They are using both our database and our database format exactly. The final confirmation of IOBit’s theft occurred when we added fake definitions to our database for a fake rogue application we called Rogue. This “malware” does not actually exist: We even manufactured fake files to match the fake definitions. Within two weeks IOBit was detecting these fake files under almost exactly these fake names. We can’t publicly show all the evidence we found, because it is still our intellectual property: But we don’t want you to have to take our word for it either, so we found a way to show you an example illustrating an indisputable pattern of theft.
Consider the file, ” dummy. It is a harmless dummy executable that runs, displays a “Hello World” message box, and exits. You can see from third-party scans on VirusTotal , that no other security vendor flags this executable as malicious or even suspicious. We created this dummy executable, then manipulated it slightly so that it matches one of the signatures in our database. We emphasize that it is still not malicious! We scanned the file with our own Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware software and indeed it was flagged as “Don’t.
We scanned it with IOBit using their current build and database version and it was flagged as the same “Don’t. We have included their log file and a screenshot of the detection. You can verify by yourself using the dummy executable and their most recent database. We have attached two other such dummy executables to this post, so you can see for yourself.
One of them, ” rogue. AVCleanSweepPro screenshot definition, the other ” fake. NaviPromo definition screenshot. VirusTotal results for ” fake.
You can see a screenshot of our detections here. During the course of our investigation, we uncovered additional evidence that IOBit may have stolen the proprietary databases of other security vendors as well. We are in the process of contacting these vendors. Malwarebytes intends to pursue legal action against IOBit. We demand IOBit immediately remove all traces of Malwarebytes’ proprietary research and database from their software. We also demand IOBit be delisted from Download.

Most of your threats are NOT viruses.

Independent experts and computer scientists have studied the effectiveness of the software. They concluded that the software practically does NOT improve your PC, compared with the standard system maintenance programs.
