Cryptocurrency Mining Protection
Cryptocurrency mining injects code into web sites and is used to hijack the visitors’ CPU to mine crytocurrency.
This has been driven by a boom in the value of cryptocoins in general and is a way for hackers to make money.
Ransomware’s goal is to encrypt the files on your device and then hold them to ransom.
You are forced to pay a fee to get back control of your device. BlackFog blocks the distribution and activation of ransomware.

Dark Web Protection
BlackFog recently introduced Dark Web protection to prevent data loss, activation and transfer of malware over the Dark Web. With an exponential increase in activity over the Dark Web over the last 12 months it is crucial that your devices are protected from this new threat. The Dark Web ransomware economy alone is growing by 2,500% annually. But what is the Dark Web and how are you vulnerable?
What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is an anonymous network that can only be accessed by browsers such as Tor. By content alone it is larger than the standard indexable Web that we use everyday by about 50% and represents approximately 6% of all sites. In contrast, the standard Web represents approximately 4%. The remaining sites, often referred to as the Deep Web, include non-indexable content managed by private organizations such as governments, corporations and other institutions.
The purpose of the Dark Web is to enable anonymous access to content and prevent the identification of both the request and destination. This is achieved by anonymizing all transactions by routing requests through multiple servers across multiple continents before providing the content to the end user. It is commonly used for private communications and is a haven for illegal activity. There are few legitimate reasons to be using this network and it cannot be accessed from a standard web browser.
Since this network is anonymized by design, it is used by hackers to hide their true identity. Malware developed by these attackers usually includes (especially when dealing with ransomware) activation and transmission of data over this network. This includes ransom payments to the attackers, which normally consists of Bitcoin transfers (which is also anonymous).
Do Antivirus products protect me?
Any device with Internet access is vulnerable to data loss and malware over the Dark Web. Antivirus (AV) solutions do not provide the protection you need. AV solutions are only useful after you have been infected, not as a preventative measure.
BlackFog provides an additional layer of protection on your device by monitoring network packets in real-time and blocking application access to the Dark Web and many other suspicious activities. Unlike antivirus software which uses signature based techniques, BlackFog uses next generation multivariant behavioral analysis to prevent attacks and reduce the total surface area exposed to cyber criminals. This includes blocks based on geography, DNS and network anomalies, advertising, profiling and tracking and other data harvesting techniques used by cyber criminals.
To ensure you are protected from these new data harvesting techniques over the Dark Web be sure that your solution includes preventative measures for data loss and identity theft.
