We put CryptoPrevent’s HoneyPot Detection protection up against the latest WannaCry Ransomware (also known as WanaCrypt0r and WCry using .WCRY extension). Plus this time we show it off on WINDOWS XP!!!!!!
Get CryptoPrevent Premium to take advantage of this protection here:
It was able to block and kill the ransomware quickly where only ONE honeypot file was 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).
