Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has been a popular tool used by the professionals to fight against the malware threats infecting the Windows computers. I myself have removed malware from my friends’ computers multiple times using this indispensable security software. Now the makers of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware have come up with a new tool called Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware designed to fight with the increasing menace of the Ransomware threats. This new security software provides you with the realtime protection from any known and new ransomware threats. It can protect from known ransomware like CryptoWall4, CryptoLocker, Tesla, and CTB-Locker. But it can also detect any ransomware like activities and block them in time.
Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware is available for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. It installs a system service that keeps monitoring your PC for any ransomware like suspicious activities. It also watches out for the malicious binary files linked to the known ransomware variants. When any such activities are detected, it blocks the processes and quarantines the malicious files.
There are no on-demand scans available, but you can still open the main window of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware from the system tray icon or the desktop shortcut. In this window you can see that you are being protected with the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware, you can explore the files/registry entries kept in the quarantine, and add files or folders in the exclusion list.
Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware is still in the beta mode and perhaps will have many more features added or altered before the final version is released. But in any case, it should be treated only as a second layer of security and must be used in addition to an existing regular antivirus product for the complete protection from malware and ransomware.
