We have done our best to support older versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac, but certain technical bugs mean that we can no longer push database updates to v1.2.6 and earlier. Refer to the Malwarebytes Lifecycle policy for more information. 


If you scan with an older version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, you may see the following detection:

The above detection is not actually malware, but a prompt for customers to download the latest Malwarebytes version. We recommend you upgrade to Malwarebytes for Mac to protect your device from current and advanced threats. Any hardware capable of running macOS 10.10 is able to run Malwarebytes on Mac devices.
