Root Cause v. Symptoms
This is a great effort to help those who have already fallen victim to phishing with ransomware. But I worry that not focusing on the root cause and rather the symptoms isn't sufficient for the types of outcomes we so desprately need.

99% of ransomware is delivered to users via phishing, solving the root cause rather than the symptom (malware / ransomware) is the best way to preempt damage.

99% of Ransomware delivered via phishing

Ransomware variant problem solved
I've made it my mission to ensure that the world is aware that Cylance has solved this problem where commodity ransomware is mutated at scale thus bypassing signatures - and we did it by decoding ransomware's DNA. You can change hair color, modify your clothes, even start walking with a limp - but your DNA stays the same! Cylance is using machine learning and AI to ensure problems such as these are addressed - finally!
