Ransomware is innovating to spread faster, hit harder and increase its payout potential. New unknown variants pop up daily, and many leverage non-malware techniques to evade traditional defenses.

CTB-Faker is a perfect example of how modern ransomware is leveraging these new techniques to easily evade traditional defenses.

Cb Defense, Carbon Black’s Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution, is able to detect this behavior and, in doing so, prevent the ransomware sample from completing its task.

In this video we show you what CTB-Faker looks like when it infects an endpoint, and how Cb Defense is able to both prevent it and provide visibility into how CTB-Faker works and how Cb Defense can stop it.
