The Anti-Cryptor task blocks access of remote hosts to the server if encryption attempts have been detected from the host. Untrusted Hosts Blocking blocks access to the server. 

To protect shared network resources from encryption, you must run these tasks. 

To run the tasks:

  1. Open the Kaspersky Security console.
  2. Go to Server Control -> Untrusted Hosts Blocking.
  3. Click Start.

The Anti-Cryptor task does not block aceess to remote computer. It only detects encryption attempts and assigns them as safe or malicious. Information about the computers which are the source of the malicious activity, is displayed in the task statistics and added to the list of untrusted computers. 

Th list of untrusted computers is a link between the Anti-Cryptor and Untrusted Hosts Blocking tasks. The Untrusted Hosts Blocking tasks blocks remote computers which were added to the list of untrusted computers by Anti-Cryptor

When malicious activity of the remote host is detected, Kaspersky Security blocks access to shared network files for this host for 30 minutes by default. You can change the blocking period in the properties of the Untrusted Hosts Blocking task.

The Anti-Cryptor does not block access to the remote host until its actions are identified as malicious. This may take some time, which is why the encryption malware may be able to perform its malicious actions during this time.
