The encrypted files were jpg?
Peter- is there really a need to test the product with 2 drives when it isn't certain that it can protect one?
Well it is supposed to be new and improved. So who knows. Lets say I am curious.
Not only jpg, check picture:
Save your time Peter,
From your Feb 4 post it appears you have already tested v. 2.2.3.
Version 2.2.3 was released no later than January 25, 2017.
I downloaded and installed v 2.2.3 on 1/25/17
While the linked article states that CyberReason "launched" v 2.2.3 at The RSA Conference 2017 today*, it was in fact released much earlier.
*Article is dated 2/13/17 and states v 2.2.3 was "launched" "today."
Yeah, it was the same build that I tested previously, with the same issues:
1). MBR lockers ignore honeypots,
2). As there are no exe's dll's etc in the honeypots Fortress class ransomware will have a free reign,
3). fast encryptors (like in my video) will trash everything simultaneously without regard for preferential regard for honeypots.
I would hope by now that this would be intuitively obvious.
Yep, no surprises. I suppose I could be cynical and say coming from the military I am not surprised, but I would never say that.
As ex-military myself, I find that real cute. But coming from you, I'm not surprised. Now I'll let your brave fanboys threaten to send me PMs.
BTW; are you saying that honeypots are all there are in this application, or is it just the shiny objects youtube testers are fascinated by and can't see around?
Well what else is there. The app doesn't perform well.
Still wonder shy a competing software company says otherwise.
I admit, I can't say either way from experience myself, but when self testers like you approach a product with an obvious bias, are reluctant to try newer versions, ignore any evidence that doesn't seem to fit your findings, and seem to only focus on why one aspect of the product can't work, such as;
when it's been pointed out to you before that they claim to incorporate other methods, then I don't trust you to even attempt to be impartial.
(How many of the above extensions you referenced did you actually try anyway?)
What other methods. It's only results that matter. See Hawki's post. No new version. You like and that's fine. You can trust your computer to it, that's fine by me.
New Version -- v. 184.108.40.206
The file version of the dll's and executables are showing v220.127.116.11
Love the suspicious/cautious smiley you use, usually.
I downloaded it again and now it's v18.104.22.168 (signed: 2017-02-27)
Mood- Are you having any issues with RansomFree hanging at shutdown? And if so/not, what OS are you using?
After installing RansomFree v22.214.171.124 it has created some directories with a few files in it (each file 50KB-200KB) :
2 hidden directories in C:\Users\Documents
2 hidden directories in C:\Users
2 hidden directories in C:\
And it has created a Remote Drive A: with the same files.These directories are removed after deinstallation, so there are not leftovers.
But there were problems with shutting down, the process of RansomFree seems to be hanging.
Yes, there were issues with shutting down, RansomFree seems to be the culprit.
OS: Windows 8 (see signature)
Thanks Mood! I wasn't sure if it was just my setup or something intrinsic to the new build.
Now Latest is: v, 126.96.36.199
I guess they fixed the "hang-issue" which was mentioned in #267 and #268 but i can't test it right now.
Seems to be another smallish issue they overlooked....
Right. I think giving RF 12mos to improve, would still net the same results.
Isn't the very definition of insanity, "doing the same thing over & over and expecting dif results" ?
Yes it sure is.
"A bit more tweaking may be in order ..."
After watching the videos, i guess the developers still have a lot of work to do...
