RanSim Ransomware Simulator will tell you if your computer is protected

  1. completely vulnerable
    BECAUSE I allowed my AV ( Qihoo ) to accept the attack
    I unallowed it afterwards
    So: not vulnerable !!!
    Qihoo recognized every attack
    as well as MalwareBytes AntiExploit did
    No problems whatsover

  2. I am using Windows 10 Pro. I have Windows Defender permanently disabled (using Ultimate Windows Tweaker, courtesy of The Windows Club itself!)*

    Instead of Defender, I use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home (Premium), Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free, Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware (Beta), Cyberreason RansomFree, and portable ClamWin Free Antivirus.

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware alone blocked all 10 ransomware scenarios that RanSim Ransomware Simulator attempted.

    In conclusion, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is good!

    *I disabled Defender because I caught it deleting files Microsoft doesn’t like without providing any notification of its actions or even logging what it had done. I only discovered what it was doing because
    I’d download a file I knew was clean to my desktop, and then a minute later I’d look for the file on my desktop and it was gone without a trace. It wasn’t in my recycling bin and Defender claimed total innocence, but I knew it was lying. I couldn’t even whitelist the file because Defender claimed the file didn’t exist. I found this behavior unacceptable, so I permanently killed Defender for its insolence!

  3. 10/10 vulnerable. Bloody useless Win 10 Defender!!

    OK, now that we know, how do we uninstall this thing? It doesn’t show up on Iobit Uninstaller…

  4. “Panda online virus protection” caught AND neutralized ALL 10 attacks ! — “Simple Software-Restriction Policy” totally prevented the attacks from executing.

  5. This is what I get when trying to run RanSim

    Avast
    Threat blocked
    Object C:UsersusersDocumentsRanSimLauncher.exe
    Infection Win32:Malware-gen
    Process C:UsersusersDocumentsRanSimRanSim.exe
    The threat was detected and blocked just before the file was
    executed.
    Report the file as a false positive
    ? Run Smart Scan
    This checks your entire PC for issues.

    So I have no clue

  6. Or… MBAR detected these tests as false because they are not real ransomware. These “simulation” suites are crapware in my opinion.

    P.S. My other comment did not get posted, I assume censoring has come to this site.

  7. when I try to download this program ” RanSim ” Google Chrome blocks the program and tells me to discard it. Why? Should I try and use this program? I have downloaded other programs from this site and never had this happen until this one instance. Note: also in the article it says something about disabling your antivirus, well when I went to try and get the download at Majorgeeks ( which I trust very well) they said not to disable your antivirus when you run this program)

  8. [1] When Chrome blocks it, select the option to allow the download. It is a safe file. [2] If one knows that a file is safe to be run, one may need to temporarily disable the antivirus to allow it to be installed. This is because an AV software could be giving out false positives. Once installed, before you run it you should reactivate the AV so that this tool takes into consideration all your defense software, etc.
