How to deal with the rising threat of ransomware

April 17, 2016

One of the methods ransomware developers use to evade detection is to force their tool to remain in a dormant state while it is under examination by security tools. This enables new variants of the virus to get past antiviruses and even some behavioral-based security solutions without being discovered. Once out of the sandbox, the ransomware is in the ideal environment to unpack its malicious payload and deal its full damage. The workaround to this technique, as discovered by an Israeli cybersecurity startup, is to trick the ransomware that it is always in the sandbox environment, which will convince it to remain in the “sleeping” state and never wake up to deploy itself.
