Software Developed by SMU Stops Ransomware Attacks

Engineers at Southern Methodist University (SMU)'s Darwin Deason Institute for Cybersecurity have developed software that identifies ransomware attacks before attackers can cause catastrophic damage, even if the ransomware is new and has not been previously used. This sensor-based ransomware detection does not rely on data from past ransomware infections to detect new ones on a computer. The software searches for small but distinguishable power surges in certain sensors within computers, in order to detect unauthorized encryptions. The software then alerts the computer to suspend or terminate the infection before the encryption can be completed. SMU's Mike Taylor said the software can scan computers in a fraction of the time that existing software can, identifying malware before extensive damage occurs.  ... "
