July 20, 2010. We have many exciting news at Emsisoft:
Mamutu 3.0 released!
The third version of our Behavior Blocker has officially been released and now protects x64 based systems. Mamutu fills the weak spot of conventional Virus-scanners and detects new and unknown Malware purely based on its destructive behavior.
In doing so it installs a guard which monitors all actions on the computer. As soon as a software starts acting suspiciously Mamutu freezes the process and raises an alarm. The intelligent behavior analysis is very reliable and is able to find pests that has already bypassed traditional protection.
The most important changes in a nutshell:
- Complete x64 / Windows 7 support
- New malicious behavior is detected
- Hundreds of detail improvements for even less false alerts and a better detection
- Improved user guidance
Mamutu 3.0 will be installed automatically via online update. A fresh install is not required. Alternatively, you can get the new setup file at the download page.
Note for Emsisoft Anti-Malware users: The Mamutu behavior analysis is a part of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, so using both programs at once is unnecessary.
Please find all details to Emsisoft Mamutu 3.0 on the Mamutu product page
