Misunderstood. My fault.
But the strange thing about Malwarebytes that I already have Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and Anti-Malware premium, and now I need their third product in order to protect my PC from ransomware... I'd rather have some sort of Malwarebytes Full Protection instead of 3 different applications :oops: .

Nowadays the only way to be secured from different lockers ( like cryptowall, locky, cerber, better call saull etc.) is to make backups of your hard drives !
My friend laptop is infected with locky and he tried almost everything: from manual removal guides (http://manual-removal.com/locky-files/) and Free Bitdefender Crypto-Ransomware Vaccine (https://labs.bitdefender.com/2016/03/combination-crypto-ransomware-vaccine-released/)to official decrypror(from locky creators which he got on Bleeping Computer Forum http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/605607/locky-ransomware-support-and-help-topic-locky-recover-instructionstxt/), and you know - result is 0 files encrypted :(


You are absolutely right! still, to this list add Odin Ransomware((( that's what the tool I used in the fight against Cerber ransomware http://myspybot.com/cerber-virus/ because if you don't have a backup of all important files - you're trapped! :cry:

Beware of a new version of Locky ransomware - .Aesir and all of it's predecessors because at this time there is still no way to decrypt the Locky Ransomware :(

It seems to me that this is impossible. Today, there are so many different types of malware (((( :roll:
