For the last four years, ransomware (like CryptoLocker, CryptoWall, and CTBLocker) has evolved into one of the biggest threats to cyber security that I’ve seen in a long time.


Most of today’s security software simply cannot protect you from ransomware. Ransomware does not act like traditional malware: some are automatically updated every day, and even use polymorphic (shapeshifting!) code to evade detection. This makes it exceedingly hard to detect.


But here are 2 software that can help


CryptoPrevent



CryptoPrevent is an Anti-Virus/Security Software Supplement, originally designed to prevent infection from the CryptoLocker threat which emerged in late 2013. Since that time, CryptoPrevent has grown into a robust solution, providing protection against a wide range of ransomware and other malware.


Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta
