    I think the standalone version won't get any update anymore

    The standalone version has been fully integrated into MBAM 3.0.
    But if you only need the Anti-Ransomware protection and not all other modules included with MBAM 3, you can continue to use the MBARW-standalone (as a perpetual beta, see below)

    They continue to provide a standalone of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware as a perpetual beta:

    BTW in their forum the last beta is from September.
    So they haven't release a new beta after the final release.

    I tested the app hours ago. After a few minutes, it automatically updated to the latest database and component package (5 minutes ago, they were lower numbers)

    Tested again several ransomwares I found on 14/01/2017 and some older ones. The result was so-so. Many bypasses unfortunately

    Maybe they release the perpetual beta of MBARW after the perpetual beta of MBAE has been released.
    We'll see.

    The perpetual beta will be offered for free and people who don't want or need an integrated AM solution can install either/both the AE or/and AR module.

    And its being kept updated.

    The update before this one was in September I think, this is a lot of time for malware. Does it have signature updates?

    MBARW is a BB AR - no need for signature-based updates.

    Hello @Brummelchen,

    Yes, it seems my link is dead as Malwarebytes posted an updated thread on September 30th (my post was from an update posted on September 21st). It appears to be the same version that I had originally posted about but Malwarebytes posted a new thread for it and deleted the old thread about nine days after I made my post. I just missed the change that Malwarebytes later made.

    Your link does appear to be for the latest version and still valid.

    Thanks for posting the updated link ;) !
