Ransomware protection for MAC

Recommended Posts

The Windows version of Eset V7 onwards I believe, now includes Ransomware protection as standard but I don't see the same protection for MAC's. Given that ransomware has been around for MAC's for a while and a new variant called EvilQuest has now hit the scene, which is a particularly nasty piece of work. It encrypts, installs a keylogger and a reverse shell, I'm surprised there is no apparent protection from the MAC Eset Endpoint AntiVirus.

On Mac we don't have HIPS as it is on Windows. However, ransomware can be detected like any other malware with standard or smart detections so Mac users can be protected against it.

According to disclosed hashes ESET detects it as OSX/Filecoder.I.
