Case subject: WannaCryptor(WannaCry) v2 – (Virustotal details)
Following up on the massive WannaCrypt attack, we have tested TEMASOFT Ranstop against several variants and recorded the test against the newest version- WannaCryptor v2.
This version still spreads via email campaigns and combines the ransomware payload with worm spreading capabilities, but it uses a different command and control server (domain), to avoid the security measures implemented to defend against the first variant.
TEMASOFT Ranstop blocks WannaCryptor v2 in a few seconds. During this time, the ransomware encrypts a few tens of files. It starts by encrypting my documents and the desktop as soon as possible, and then continues with other locations but at a much slower pace. During our test, TEMASOFT successfully stopped, quarantined and cleaned up the infection while automatically recovering the files.
