Phantom apps implement a set of Actions, which are the building blocks for creating Playbooks. These are the Actions available from the Malwarebytes App for Phantom.

  • get scan info - Get information about a scan job.
  • get endpoint info - Get information about an endpoint.
  • list endpoints - List all the endpoints/sensors configured on the device.
  • scan and report - Scan an endpoint and report threats found.
  • scan and remediate - Scan an endpoint and remediate threats found.
  • test connectivity - Validate the asset configuration for connectivity using supplied configuration.



The best way to get official support help is to create a ticket online at the Malwarebytes business support site.

If the event is of Medium Severity, an Action is invoked to scan and remediate the endpoint. If the event is of High Severity, it will be quarantined, with an email being sent to notify the appropriate people.
