“AaronLocker” updates (13 May 2019)


Hot on the heels of yesterday's changes, "AaronLocker" now handles EXE and DLL files with non-standard extensions. Scan a directory with, say, "*.pyd" files or "*.api" files or any other non-standard extension, the "AaronLocker" scripts now identify them, distinguish whether they are Win32 EXE or DLL rules, and builds rules to cover them.

  1. This is some great stuff Aaron, thank you. In regards to the Intel batch file issue with the older video driver, what would you recommend for a short term solution for enterprises to deal with that while planning for a rollout of the newer video driver that addresses that problem?

    [Aaron Margosis] There’s no good way to allow those batch files to run. However, I’ve never noticed any problems when they’ve been blocked.
