RansomFree is a new tool that promises to stop ransomware attacks before they can get busy encrypting all of your data. Instead of watching specific processes or trying to use signatures to identify ransomware, it observes the behavior of running processes instead, warning you when something’s up.
The service is new, to be sure, but a quick look around for some tests against common ransomware types reveals it seems to work well in the wild. Hit the link below to learn more, and to download and try it out. Oh—it’s worth noting that this is no replacement for traditional antivirus or antimalware utilities. Think of it as a complementary tool instead, one that’s pretty lightweight, to boot. You can read more about it and how it works in its FAQ here.
