Malwarebytes anti-exploits service protects Windows XP users from attacks


From The Inquirer:
Consumer, Premium and Corporate versions of the service are available, and are designed to pre-emptively stop hackers from infecting Windows machines with malware.

"An exploit will typically first corrupt the memory of an application process, take control, then execute code," said Malwarebytes director of special projects Pedro Bustamante.

"From the shell code it executes a payload that tells the exploit what to do and that in turn usually downloads malware from the internet and executes it. The final stage is usually where antivirus kicks in, when it's being downloaded from the internet, and starts doing things like behavioural analysis to see if it's malicious.
