I do have to wonder if it spots ransomware pure by behavior or is it signature based?
Probably b oth
Behavior Blocker based, it is not "traditional" signatures per se, but they are rules that receive some updates and tweaks.
Like I said many times in that Malwaretips thread, it was just a cosmetic change, Emsisoft has zero-day protection against Ransomware for years (behavior blocker).
I lost some time in that thread because of this kind of reasoning and posts:
I imagine that Fabian didnt even care to answer this kind of posts.
Off topic but what is SUA I see in your signature? It is probably something obvious but just can't think of anything at the moment. Thank you.
Standard User Account.
My reasoning to not use a full administrator account daily:
Duh I knew it had to be something obvious. Thank you!
I would say both.
Though the change described in blog is connected to behavior blocking part.
Yes, seems like it is truly behavioral monitoring based. The BB is better than I thought:
mm..... maybe you can find some friend still had student position ,
or try to find few people to buy it together , more user buying together can be cheaper ~
As i know the Emsisoft License do not limit the position , it's doesn't matter where you live ,
so you can buy from other local reseller ( if it's cheaper ) ,
than direct register you license key into Emsisoft License Center , it's also legal
WD , you mean Windows Defender ?
if it's , i still suggest you should change to Emsisoft ( or other AV software)
WD is not quite bad , but not good enough ~
I had saw many people asking for help on other forum ,
because their system had be infected ,
and i discover , they are all using WD only .
WD is not quite good at defend PUP、PUA、hijack ,
also it's pretty bad at defend ransomware
Duly noted. Not sure I am definitely going with EAM but I may. Thanks.
In making your decision note that Emsisoft has a Loyalty Program -- 25% off on license renewals + an additional 5% more for every subsequent year you renew.
Yeah, and together with VS, it make a solid defense.
I just found out about that the other day which is nice. One concern I have is that it does not do well with Phishing. I am ok with it but not everyone lol.
VS is something I need to try. Any advice for a VS noob?
Sure, you can send @VoodooShield a personal message with request, he is also very open to questions and issues on his thread. It's relatively simple to use and very recommended for a layered solution.
Got it thanks.
Just renewed my EAM License for 4 years instead of NOD32 due to the fact that they can't get their bugs fixed (pause protection button disappeared for a long time now)
Wow that is awesome.
Emsisoft has a Loyalty Program I've been using it 6+ years 50% off for me.
Well yeah, I use a program called SyncBack Pro to backup my stuff to an external HDD and when I just upgraded my license for that from v7 to v8, they gave me a 1 year free license for EAM, so I thought what the heck, let me upgrade that license for another 3 years so total of 4
anyone knows if Emsisoft Anti-Malware whitelists safe files after an initial scan for better performance in the future for those files that are safe?
Sounds like a great deal. If there were some discounts to be had I would likely purchase a 1 year license. But for now, until that time comes, I am using WD.
Try this link:
It shows a better deal for me.
Thanks but still not enough for me to take the plunge.
Just upgraded my license to a 12 PC/10 year license! It's that good and light! Love how well it does with PUP detections
