The ultimate CryptoLocker script

The ultimate CryptoLocker script

In a previous post I’ve been looking at how to use file screening to help block CryptoLocker. File screening is a great feature of Windows Server 2012 but the set up can be a pain. With this in mind this is a handy script which will make all the configuration changes for you.

Hosted over at GitHub a user called M-Dwyer has posted an awesome script called CryptoBlocker to take care of the entire process for you – from installing File Screening through to adding shares and configuring the file extension restrictions.

I’ve included a copy below but I would encourage you to have a read over the file hosted at GitHub. Just copy the file to a powershell script and then run it on your 2012 server.
