    SECURITY ALERT: Snatch Ransomware Reboots Your PC in Safe Mode to Avoid Detection

    This is a never-before-seen strategy in ransomware and malware. Here’s how the Snatch ransomware will bypass Antivirus detection, and how to stay safe.


    Ransomware is experiencing a resurgence in the second half of 2019 and it will probably grow in 2020, which is about to begin, too. In perhaps the most disturbing ransomware development of the year, a newcomer has developed a novel strategy to bypass Antivirus detection. The Snatch ransomware starts its activity by rebooting Windows computers in Safe Mode.

    This allows it to elude Antivirus detection since it only starts behaving like ransomware after rebooting. Unfortunately, most commercial Antivirus programs don’t initialize in Windows Safe Mode, since that type of booting is only used as a temporary state for troubleshooting a malfunctioning system.

    It’s not the first time malware has found ways to disable Windows defenses and trick it, but the Snatch ransomware has the potential to be the most damaging attack vector yet. I can’t stress the importance of learning about Snatch and taking all defensive measures against it.

    Enabling DNS over HTTPS (DoH): Advantages and Best Practices

    A new internet protocol is making headlines in the world of enterprise security: DNS over HTTPS. Even though this is of major interest especially for businesses and organizations, regular users will be impacted by it as well. Are you ready for this cybersecurity revolution yourself?


    Here’s what all the fuss is about the new DoH protocol. If done right, the hype around it is well-deserved. Once it’s implemented well, DoH can make network communications much more secure.


    The new DNS over HTTPS protocol is still relatively new in the world of network connections. First emerged about two years ago, the new protocol is mostly not implemented yet.


    When it comes to browsers, Google seems to be the first to it. They recently announced they plan to roll out DNS over HTTPS in the near future.
    This guide will tell you what this means and how you can implement DNS over HTTPS yourself, the changes to expect and so on.
    What Is DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and How Does This Protocol Work?
    First thing’s first, let’s clear up the basics. Not everyone understands exactly what DNS is and how it works, let alone the new DNS over HTTPS.
