Bitdefender Anti-CryptoWall 1.0.7

CryptoWall is included in the ransomware category, considered one of the most dangerous threats for computer users. It is a modified version of CryptoLocker, which is used to extort money from users of infected PCs. Created by the popular Bitdefender security company, Bitdefender Anti-CryptoWall promises to protect your system against the aforementioned ransomware by monitoring the PC in real time and automatically blocking CryptoWall's actions. CryptoWall encrypts files in the attempt to gain financial benefit by promising users that the documents will be decrypted for money.

Bitdefender, the innovative antivirus software provider, is offering a new freeware utility to protect users against CryptoWall. This family of file-encrypting viruses has been around for less than 5 months and has already extorted more than $1 million and inflicted inestimable damage on users who refuse to pay ransom.

File-encrypting ransomware has become one of the industry’s biggest challenges in 2014. Because of the industry-grade asymmetric encryption algorithm, there is no reasonable way to recover the files without the private decryption key.

"Ransomware is not only technologically challenging for both users and antimalware companies, but its success in extorting money is inspiring other cybercriminal groups to enter the ransomware business,” said Bitdefender Chief Security Strategist Cătălin Coșoi. ‚"The tool we are releasing today blocks the encryption process even if the computer becomes infected."

Bitdefender Anti-CryptoWall can keep an eye on your computer and block known encryption methods used by CryptoWall. No installation is required, so you just have to launch it in order to activate its protection mechanism.

Aside from real-time anti-ransomware protection, this application integrates an immunization technique that prevents executables from the 'AppData' and 'Startup' folders to launch.

Bitdefender Anti-CryptoWall aims to help you keep your data safe by protecting you and your computer against the CryptoWall ransomware. No complicated configuration is required to have it up and running. It can be launched with Windows and set to run minimized in the system tray, safeguarding your computer without interfering with your work.

However, it is highly recommended that you use a permanent security solution, which can protect your PC against various types of threats, not just ransomware.
