Bitdefender Anti-Ransomware is a free computer program to protect the system from infection by Trojans CryptoWall, CTB-Locker, Citroni, TorLocker, etc., which are one of the most dangerous extortionists of CryptoLocker, using encryption of user files to extort money for reverse decryption. Bitdefender Anti-CryptoLocker is an effective solution for fighting malicious programs that prevent the user from accessing certain files and extorting money from him for unlocking.
Bitdefender, a new and innovative company, introduced a free solution designed to protect users’ computers from the most common malicious programs-Locky, TeslaCrypt and CTB-Locker.
The principle of the new Bitdefender protection tool, called Anti-Ransomware, is largely similar to the previous solution of the company – CryptoWall, – the algorithm of which has undergone a number of forced changes, which reduced the effectiveness of the application in the fight against extortionists.
But back to Anti-Ransomware. Many extortion programs have built-in verification mechanisms that prevent you from re-encrypting files in an already infected system. Anti-Ransomware wraps this against intruders: the program causes the extortionist fraudulently to believe that the files on the computer have already been encrypted by Locky, TeslaCrypt or CTB-Locker. As a result, this avoids a real infection.
Unfortunately, the algorithm underlying Anti-Ransomware is imperfect and can only provide protection against certain types of extortion programs. Experts emphasize that users should in no case forget about other precautions: timely install the latest updates for the operating system, browser and plug-ins, and ignore suspicious emails sent by anonym senders.
Application is only used to protect systems that may be infected by some versions of CryptoWall and CTB-Locker. Therefore, for integrated protection it is desirable to use a specialized Bitdefender Internet Security solution.
