ColdLock ransomware is devastating organizations, but Intercept X can help to freeze it out.

A new ransomware variant dubbed “ColdLock” has emerged in Taiwan where it’s having a devastating effect on impacted organizations.

Fortunately, Sophos Intercept X gives the cold shoulder to ColdLock, blocking the attack before it can hold you hostage.

Stop ColdLock with Intercept X

ColdLock is a file-less attack. It runs from a PowerShell script where the ransomware code is directly loaded into memory and then executed, all without writing an executable file to the disk.

Intercept X is packed with technologies that protect your organization from ColdLock and other ransomware variants:

  • Exploit protection stops the techniques used in file-less, malware-less, and exploit-based attacks.
  • CryptoGuard technology stops the unauthorized encryption of files by ransomware, rolling any impacted files back to their original state.
  • The deep learning engine uses cutting-edge machine learning to identify and block never-before-seen ransomware before it executes.
  • Credential Theft stops privilege escalation, preventing hackers from moving round your system

Plus, the built-in EDR tools give you detailed insight into what happened, so you can see where the threat got in, what it touched, and when it was blocked.
