Avast Anti-Ransomware Shield Testing
« on: February 04, 2019, 11:19:38 PM »
This thread is meant for the Avast team ; if you, "Avasters" see this, do some analysis on it ! Would help the overall protection !
There is also a survey on top of the page. Give your opinion about the Anti-Ransomware Shield reactions after reading below !

Hi folks  :), just sharing a test of mine of the Anti-Ransomware shield VS KnowBe4 Ransim (ransomware simulator).

Here, the test folder of Ransim has been set to protected in the A-RW-S settings.
Smart Mode.
Every default file types are selected
Custom file extensions :
exe, dat, fat, rpf, dll, ini, sys, cfg, torrent
(dat, fat : commonly used by Ubisoft
rpf : used by Rockstar Advanced Game Engine games, like GTA V
cfg : ConFiG, used by programs)

At every Avast prompt I select "BLOCK".

Screenshot of my settings



I have done the test atleast two times with less settings !
May not be accurate !

Screenshot of the results

No doubt, my location is totally visible.

If there's any thing you'd like to ask to me, feel free to.
I'm open to questions.

I might also be open to REAL ransomwares testing. Just give me time. These things are dangerous to mess with. I'll test them into a VM.
Good night  ;)

Hi,
I am currently under attack by ransomeware and Avast is unable to detect it. When I download your product, it becomes infected with the Malware.

I have several MacBooks affected (2 that have been totally encrypted), multiple PC's, 8 I Pads/ I Phones, 3 networks, and 2 vehicles.

Nothing works. I have purchased every antivirus on the market, hired the geek squad, paid Apple to reformat computers, paid Xfinity to trouble shoot, paid Frontier, etc....

Forget your VM, you can test on my network.
