Ransomware is malicious software, designed to block data access in order to extort money. As a form of malware, ransomware is most often used to infiltrate devices through infected emails or links that, in turn, recognize and take advantage of vulnerabilities in the operating system and installed third-party software.

Hello all,

In order to deal with all kind of Ransoms virus I think that the only solution could be snapshots, i have couple of questions regarding this:

1.  is there any tool \ script \ software that able PC encrypted snapshot that could not be encrypt by ransom encryption?
2.  what is the best way to schedule snapshot to  VM (hyper-v environment).

we are searching solution for servers and workstation that we could restore from snapshot in minutes.

Best Regards,

Asaf

Hi, unfortunately our server was hacked and all files encrypted using mkgoro@india.com.wallet ransom. Thankfully we had a backup that's almost saved the day.

Pervious server was SBS2011 with office 365 exchange.

I have created a new server with server 2012 essentials, what should I do to protect from a further attack. I have not enabled VPN for the moment and have closed all ports on our router.

In order to tackle the above issue, I need to write up a report to the management for a short term and long term action plan.

The second thing that comes up in my mind is an intrusion prevention system which detects and stops any abnormal network activity.

Can deployment of intrusion prevention system help to block the spread of ransomware?

This is a new one for me... My client, who is computer illiterate, downloaded a file from FilesAnywhere that he had previously uploaded.  He says that all of a sudden the desktop went haywire and his files were renamed with weird stuff (screen shot attached).  I have never run into this before and I'm not sure what happened but it looks to me like his files got encrypted. This is the destop... note the weird file names that were previously powerpoint presentations and videos, etc.
There is a folder on his desktop called "Ultrasonic.Key" and I'm not sure what that is.  Can anybody figure this out?  Willing to pay for help!This is the ultrasonic.key folder, note the colors.  Not sure what this is.
There have been no "ransomeware" popups and the computer scans clean for viruses.

I have received a work assignment for a recommendation of the best practice and how to deploy a cost-effective solution to mitigate the risks for the subject matter.

If you have completed a project recently, can you share the documentation of your proposal to me?

Thanks!

I am a one person IT consulting company and I want to offer a backup solution to my small and home business clients. What are you feelings towards Carbonite's Partner Program and would you recommend anyone over them?
thanks in advance!
