Doesn't prevent infection after reboot


Recommended Posts

See http://imgur.com/a/b9oEa. Last image is after the reboot.

Looks like it stops it from cryptolocking all the files at run time, but despite the popup, the UI doesn't show anything in quarantine.

It also doesn't seem to remove the autorun registry entry, which I guess is why it can't stop cryptowall on a reboot after infection.


The sample I used was this: https://malwr.com/analysis/MDQ2YjNhMmQzNTM3NGIyODk0MzRhZGYyMWViNTdkNWM// https://www.hybrid-analysis.com/sample/50b011838c687a7c1cd225c23522ee969596735248e040a6561d07533bd95dd6

It looks like a newer variant of cryptowall4?

I can provide the initial sample if needed. (This was run on an unpatched windows 7 box running nothing but anti-RW)

Thanks for the report kyhwana. We do block this but there's a bug which will be fixed in beta2 to be released tomorrow.


Please re-test with beta2 and thanks again for your help in improving this product!

Question, how will the updates be rolled out with MBARW, auto update or manual? How will it work  Because I see no place in the UI that states "update" ?
