In the Malwarebytes Nebula policy settings, you can add applications for our Anti-Exploit technology to protect. Anti-Exploit technology is a multi-layered protection module in Malwarebytes that prevents exploit attacks that target vulnerabilities found in these applications.
You may want to protect applications used by your endpoints that are not already listed in the default policy's Protected Applications. For a list of the default applications, see List of protected applications in Malwarebytes Nebula.
To follow the steps in this article, enable the New policies experience switch in the Policies page.
If you have the new policies experience disabled, locate these policy settings by referring to: Malwarebytes Nebula policy with new experience disabled.
If you would like to protect other applications using Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit technology, follow these steps:
- Log in to your Malwarebytes Nebula console.
- Go to Settings > Policies.
- Select a policy.
- Select the Protection settings option.
- Under Exploit protection, click Advanced settings.
- Click Manage protected applications. The Protected Applications window displays.
- Click Add. The Add an Application window displays.
- Complete the following fields:

- Application File: Enter the filename for the app.
- Program Type: Select a program type from the drop down menu:
- Chrome-based Browsers
- Media Players

You can Edit or Remove protected applications from the Protected Applications window. We recommend disabling protection for individual applications instead of removing them.
