About one year ago, Malwarebytes gained a new weapon in the fight against cyber-crime to accomplish things it had not been able to before, by releasing a tool known as “Chameleon”.  Since then, very few changes have been made to the tool in helping it continue to evade the offensive efforts of malware against Malwarebytes […]
