The firm revealed that Malwarebytes three.6.1 CU 1.zero.508 Premium was affected by the issue however solely on gadgets working Windows 7 and processors with a number of cores; earlier variations of the safety software program weren’t affected.
Users reported occasional lock-ups and freezes on affected methods with no choice to revive the system.
