Google lumps Malwarebytes with a bad security report and a lot of homework

Project Zero has been kicking sand in the face of Malwarebytes and picking the firm's protection precautions apart.

Malwarebytes usually wears the boot in this kind of thing, but Project Zero has taken a punt in the security firm's direction and accused it of all sorts of bad things.

This is not the first time that Project Zero has pointed fingers, as the gang only recently made Microsoft, FireEye and Trend Micro look bad. Malwarebytes has "multiple security issues" that can open users to man-in-the-middle attacks and other things that you might choose to avoid, according to a Project Zero report from researcher Tavis Ormandy.
