If you have been keeping up with the Malwarebytes Facebook or Twitter pages, you might have heard about the interview done on Category5 TV last night with none other than the newest hero in the fight against malware, ANTI-MALWARE MAN!
To Commemorate the halloween season, the hosts of Category5 TV, Robbie Ferguson & Sasha Dirmeitis, donned their super hero outfits and presented the show as Spiderman and Spidergirl. During the show, they were visited by our own local superhero, Anti-Malware Man; wielding the powers of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and protecting users from the evil doings of cyber-criminals.
The interview comprised of talking about malware and specifically the one type of malicious cyber attack which can threaten any person using any operating system, Phishing. Anti-Malware Man provided information on what all internet users need to keep an eye out for, which avenues to be aware of when it comes to phishing and of course how to be protected from phishing attacks.

Is this is the last we will see of Anti-Malware Man? I think not, for as long as there are trusting users being exploited by cyber-criminals, Anti-Malware Man will fight. As long as malware spreads to unpatched and unprotected systems, Anti-Malware Man will be there. As long as it is dangerous for anyone from ages 5 to 500 to be threatened by simply going online, Anti-Malware Man will be there! Stay tuned next time for another episode of Malwarebytes Unpacked!
