We put CryptoPrevent’s HoneyPot Detection protection up against the latest WannaCry Ransomware (also known as WanaCrypt0r and WCry using the .WCRY extension).
It was able to block and kill the ransomware quickly where only two honeypot files were encrypted and no legitimate files on the system were affected. It was also able to kill the ransomware before it had a chance to add any startup entries so the system could be rebooted and cleaned if needed (but shutting down and cleaning ransomware in an offline state is always preferred and highly recommended).
Sorry for the bad audio this was recorded from a thin client almost 400 miles away from the system doing the video and audio recording, but you get the gist of it well enough I feel.
Also this shows a currently unreleased 126.96.36.199 version but the same protections demonstrated here have been in CryptoPrevent since the initial version 8 release and the update only has minor performance and small bug fixes that are unrelated to the protections shown. If you are on 188.8.131.52 (the latest version you should be protected just as well as shown here). The updated version should be released the beginning of next week, but no need to wait to stay protected now!
