Ransomware - stopping it before it encrypts
« on: June 24, 2016, 06:30:58 AM »
while looking for a program that will stop ransomware from doing its dirtywork.  Or at least notify when it does find something.  I stumbled across this program CryptoMonitor

Has anyone used this or a similar program?

thanks
dave

thanks for the link to the thread about it.  I must have missed this thread when I logged into my account.

FWIW I bought WinAntiRansom Plus a while back when on offer.
It does block and ask permission for things to run.
You can add up to 10 'Safe-zone folders'.
...
how good it is, I have no idea
