CryptoPrevent is a tiny utility to lock down any Windows OS (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10) to prevent infection by the Cryptolocker malware or ‘ransomware’, which encrypts personal files and then offers decryption for a paid ransom.

YES, this is the original CryptoLocker prevention tool you’ve read about, designed to prevent infection from the first “ransomware” threat which emerged in late 2013, encrypting valuable data on the infected PC and offering decryption in exchange for large payment. Within a few months of it’s release it created quite a buzz with features from Brian Krebs security blog (among many others) and by educators everywhere such as Kim Komando, Ken Dwight ‘The Virus Doctor’, the infamous Britec09 on Youtube, and ultimately reaching televised news such as CNBC and The Today Show.

We are proud to announce the release of CryptoPrevent Version 8!

We’ve re-written CryptoPrevent from the ground up, incorporating new features to bring you the latest protections from crypto-style ransomware and all other forms of malware!
New Features in v8 (Free and Premium Editions)

New: Folder Watch – Monitors and protects common folders from items that match malware definitions.

New: Submit Malicious Files – This will allow you to submit malicious files (which are not in our malware definitions) to review for inclusion in the default definitions.

Improved: Program Filtering Protection – The original ‘BETA’ program filtering protections were very effective, but caused issues with running certain programs; now it offers vastly improved reliability as it is based on the new code platform of the coming 3rd generation ‘d7x’ PC technician utilities, it is thoroughly tested, and recommended for mass usage!

Improved: SRP Protection – The original protection method since CryptoPrevent version 1 was automatically created “SRP” rules (aka “Software Restriction Policies” which are normally only available in “Professional” editions of the Windows operating system and only scriptable across Active Directory/domain environments.) CryptoPrevent v1 created 8 SRP rules for protection and v7.4.21 (the final v7) created just under 400 SRP rules, while version 8.0 currently creates just under 4000! That’s 10x as many as v7 and 500x as many as v1!

New/Improved: Expanded Malware Definitions (Optional) – Expanded malware and ransomware detection definitions add cutting edge detection power to CryptoPrevent, and are updated at least weekly, although they may increase the risk of ‘false positive’ malware detections. (These are entirely optional; you may elect to keep the standard definition set with less risk of ‘false positive’ detections.)

v8.0.4.3 (October 5th, 2017)

Performance increases for save/load of Bulk/White-Label configurations
Performance increases in the application of Bulk/White-Label settings at time of install
Performance increases on application startup
Several other minor performance improvements
Corrected issue where blacklist command line option may have whitelisted in some cases
Bulk registration data is now handled entirely via HTTPS (Note registration data was always encrypted prior to being sent, this mainly eliminated a fallback v7 Bulk communication method)
Several other minor bug fixes
New FolderWatch/HoneyPot options (see more here)
HoneyPot Detection Message shows details about detected event and file detected
HoneyPot Detection Message gives the option to go back into windows explorer (instead of just shutdown or reboot)
Subscription Information shown in a tab in the interface
Debug submission available under subscription tab (so this is a premium only option to email support with debug info attached)
Additional HoneyPot Detections for new ransomware variants
Management Console ready (A management console is in the works and being up to date with this version should prepare the clients for this ability on its release)

We STILL have several more improvements already in development and testing, so there should be additional updates in the coming days.
