On Tuesday, Oct. 24, a new strand of ransomware named Bad Rabbit appeared in Russia and the Ukraine and spread throughout the day.
SonicWall Capture Labs threat researchers investigated Bad Rabbit and the proficiency of the SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) sandboxing service against the previously unknown ransomware. Analyzing three different Bad Rabbit samples, the multi-engine Capture ATP successfully stopped all three attacks.
The SonicWall Capture ATP sandboxing service is designed to provide real-time protection against new strains of malware even before signatures are available on firewalls.
In addition, the SonicWall Capture Labs released signatures to protect customers against Bad Rabbit malware. These signatures are available to SonicWall firewall customers with an active Gateway Security subscription (GAV/IPS) and are applied automatically. More info here.
