11/18/2013: Free HitmanPro Alert 2.5
HitmanPro’s CryptoGuard is a universal solution against crypto ransomware. This type of ransomware encrypts your personal files and demands a ransom fee to be paid in order to regain access to your files.
HitmanPro.Alert 2.5 contains a new feature, called CryptoGuard that monitors your file system for suspicious operations. When suspicious behavior is detected, the malicious code is neutralized and your files remain safe from harm.
CryptoGuard works silently in the background at the file system level, keeping track of processes modifying your personal files. CryptoGuard works autonomously, so no user interaction is required.
To protect your files from being taking hostage, simply download and install HitmanPro.Alert.
CryptoGuard is part of HitmanPro.Alert 2.5 (or newer) and supports Windows 8, XP, Vista and 7 (32-bit and 64-bit).
