General Discussion / Re: Blocking OSIRIS

Here is a possibility, but I can't guarantee anything. Evidently, OSIRIS makes a copy of your files and encrypts them as it does and then deletes the original file. RECUVA suggests that you might be able to restore the deleted files but only after you are sure that the OSIRIS virus has been removed from your computer. It's worth a try.

When you say "infection", are you referring to encrypted files?  Do you mean that the 7 items located by Malwarebytes were all other than OSIRIS? Since Malwarebytes states that it can block OSIRIS, contact them and be sure that it will remove the infection. See if you can identify the seven items that it found. Put them up on Google and see what their identity is and how they might operate.  Since Malwarebytes did not remove the evidence of infection as you found it, contact them for their interpretation. Can you delete the encrypted files?

The retail version of Malwarebytes is advertising that it has an "anti-ransomeware module" that blocks ransomware from activating on a computer.

14-day free trial: https://www.malwarebytes.com/trial/    Reverts to the free version if not bought after 14 days.   

"Anti-ransomware (module) stops ransomware attacks before your data is held hostage (in real time)."

Take a look at these. You can at least read about it and Malwarebytes claims to be able to remove the virus but not restore the encrypted files. Hope this helps.
