Re: Megacortex Ransomware

Hi @Sam88,

My apologies for the post being unanswered for 2 weeks now. I hope it's not too late. not only for this, but for any Malware campaigns you would like to inquire about, McAfee or any AV vendor for that matter cannot provide a solid answer on coverage information with the malware campaign's name.

This is based on the fact that malwares can vary, there may be several variants used in the same campaign, several can be undetected or detected based on their behavior while the AV vendor may not have any information of the file sample itself.

Hence I would request you to kindly help me with any IOC (Indicators of Compromise) or specific hash values you have for this malware so that we can help you with exact detection names if we already have the sample with us.

Alternatively, you can obtain the information via a Service Request as well.

Also, please bear in mind that we do not depend on Signature based detection alone as we use several components of Endpoint Security to perform detection using different technologies and parameters.
