Vinchin Advice and Solution on Anti-Ransomware
Vinchin Advice on Anti-ransomware Measures
1.The password should be a mixture of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers and special symbols, and the password should be long enough. At the same time, a security policy should be added to limit the number of login failures and the password should be changed regularly.
2.Do not use the same or similar login passwords for multiple machines, so as to avoid the tragic situation of "one machine falls, the whole network is paralyzed".
3.Patch system vulnerabilities in time, and don’t ignore security patches for various common services.
4.Close non-essential services and ports such as 135, 139, 445, 3389 and other high-risk ports.
5.Strictly control the permissions of shared folders, and use cloud collaboration as much as possible in the parts that need to share data.
6.Improve security awareness. Do not click on unfamiliar links, email attachments from unknown sources, and files sent by strangers through instant messaging software. Perform security scans before clicking or running them. Try to download and install software from safe and trusted channels.
7.Install professional safety protection software and ensure the safety monitoring is on and running normally, and update the safety software timely.
8.Business data must be backed up regularly. For important and confidential file data even need to have multiple backups in multiple locations.
By observing the trend of ransomware attacks, it has clearly shifted from a broad and shallow level of ordinary users to medium and large government and enterprise organizations and industry organizations. A security report shows that since June 2018, global blackmail attacks against To B have increased by 363%.
At the same time, the ransomware mutates extremely fast, the transmission channels are increasing, and the decryption ransom is also skyrocketing. These characteristics make the anti-virus software upgrade speed unable to keep up with the virus mutating speed in time, and decryption tools cannot effectively deal with the data decryption after being ransomed. For the unit, once infected with the ransomware virus, the impact will be immeasurable.
Therefore, data backup is the ultimate effective means to deal with ransomware. Before the ransomware event occurs, you can back up important business data regularly or in real time. After the ransomware event occurs, you can quickly restore the backup data and start the business operation without giving up the encrypted data. No need to pay a ransom.
