The Use of a Real Time Engine

Malwarebytes was happy to announce that clients using the Malwarebytes Endpoint Security that they were protected against this new specific ransomware variant called Petya-esque using their real-time detection engine.

Malwarebytes’ real-time detection engine continuously monitors for ransomware behaviors which were analyzed with this latest round of attacks.

The Petya-esque Ransomware Variant

Malwarebytes’ describes the Petya-esque attack as “more powerful, professional, and dangerous than last month’s WanaCrypt0r attack.”

The new variant of this attack uses the same loopholes in the Microsoft operating system platform that were used for the EternalBlue exploit to gain control of a user’s system.

The difference with this variant of the ransomware attack is it loads it self into the boot loader of the operating system making the computer’s contents useless until a key is given at boot time to reboot into the normal operating system.
