Ransomware Roundup: Attacking Shadow Copies Featuring Cryptowall

September 7, 2017 / Sean Blanton

Ransomware is innovating to spread faster, hit harder and increase its payout potential. New unknown variants pop up daily, and many leverage non-malware techniques to evade traditional defenses.

Cryptowall is a perfect example of how modern ransomware is evolving, using new techniques to disable shadow copies on Windows machines to remove the ability to recover from local backups.

Cb Defense, Carbon Black’s Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution, is able to detect this behavior and, in doing so, prevent the ransomware sample from completing its task.

In this video we give you a behind-the-scenes look at Cryptowall in action, and show you how Cb Defense is able to both prevent it.
