Ransom Ware Tool by Cybereason!
« on: December 21, 2016, 06:48:10 pm »
Eliminating Cyber Crime
Cybereason’s mission is to put an end to cyber crime. And in order to put an end to one of the most profitable cyber operations of the recent years – ransomware – we have to make it unprofitable for the criminals. That’s why we are launching RansomFree: free, easy-to-install ransomware protection software, available for download for every individual and business that lacks the budget and skills to fight back.

About Cybereason
Cybereason is a company of elite, former military cyber-security experts. Our deep experience in offensive cyber operations helped us build military-grade technologies that enable companies to stop attacks in real time.
Cybereason raised over 90 million dollars from investors like Lockheed Martin and the Japanese telecommunication giant Softbank. The company and its technology were featured in Fortune and Forbes.

The team at Cybereason released today a new tool that tries to help users stay safe from ransomware infections.

Named RansomFree, this application can help users of Windows 7, 8 and 10, and Windows Server 2010 R2 and 2008 R2 PCs.

According to a test performed by Bleeping Computer's Lawrence Abrams, under the hood RansomFree works by creating randomly-named folders throughout the filesystem that act as honeypots.

These folder names start with characters like ~ or ! because they are low on the ASCII table and thus will be scanned first by ransomware.
