NEWS ADVISORY:

Learn how Trend Micro protects you against the latest BadRabbit Ransomware, WCRY (WannaCry) Ransomware and PETYA (2017) Ransomware attacks.

Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system. This type of malware forces its victims to pay the ransom through certain methods in order to grant access to their systems, or to get their data back.

There are two (2) types of Ransomware: Lock Screen, which limits the users from accessing the computer, and Crypto (File Encryption), which encrypts files to limit users from access their files.

Trend Micro™ Ransomware Screen Unlocker Tool is designed to eliminate Lock Screen ransomware from your infected PC in two different scenarios:

  • Scenario 1: Lock Screen ransomware is blocking “normal mode”, but “safe mode” with networking is still accessible.
  • Scenario 2: Lock Screen ransomware is blocking both “normal mode” and “safe mode” with networking.

SCENARIO 1: Lock Screen Ransomware is blocking normal mode but Safe Mode with networking is still accessible
SCENARIO 2: Lock Screen Ransomware is blocking both normal mode and safe mode with networking
