Unlicensed Malwarebytes use on campus
We’ve been advised by the cybersecurity company Malwarebytes that there may be unlicensed installations of their Malwarebytes anti-malware software on CSU-owned systems. Unless departments or units have purchased a valid license for Malwarebytes, it should be removed from all machines that are being used in support of university business. In addition, Malwarebytes should not be registered on any computer using an @colostate.edu email address unless a license has been purchased.
The Information Security Office recommends the use of Microsoft Defender for the protection of university-managed devices when compatible. Additionally, ACNS has been piloting the use of Microsoft Defender ATP (Advanced Threat Protection), and will be communicating with the CSU IT community about the campus-wide roll-out of this enhanced protection.
If you have questions or feedback on Microsoft Defender or endpoint security use cases, please contact the Information Security Office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
