Do not rely on MSWindows, Internet explorer, or on the electronic signature: a unsigned download is usually as safe as a signed one, signed just means the author paid Microsoft or Verisign for a stamp, it does not mean verified.

(Prevents Petia from attacking by using a dummy .dat file
RansomAway version 1.0 Prevents the Petia Ransomware from attacking. It has been discovered that the Petya Ransomware checks for a read-only file, C:\Windows\perfc.dat, and if it finds it, it wont run the encryption side of the software. One of ways to fight Ransomware is to 'immune' a PC against it. That is what RansomAway does. This tool creates a dummy readonly file by that name that makes Petia think the PC was already being attacked. By Michael Haephrati, Secured Globe, Inc. UX by Ruth Haephrati.
