Ransomware has become a serious threat. As such, lots of universities, software companies, and organizations from all over the world are taking precautions to protect their systems from ransomware attacks.

To protect and immunize your machine, download the zipped file from CyberGhos. After you download the file, you have to extract its contents and click on PetyaImmunizer.exe file. You’ll see that within a couple of seconds, a window will be displayed that will show the fact that your system is now immunized.

The complete message will be: “CyberGhost has successfully immunized your system! Your system is now immunized from the current Petya version. We can’t guarantee that this immunization will work for future versions of Petya and recommend installing an Antivirus product. For additional protection, we recommend installing CyberGhost Pro.”

In case your Windows SmartScreen shows a warning, you can safely ignore it and allow the program to run.

There is not much data on the developer’s blog regarding the way that CyberGhost Petya Immunizer functions to prevent the Petya Ransomware from infecting your system, but it would have come in handy to know the exact mechanism the program uses.

CyberGhost Immunizer works on Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista and also on Windows XP. To be installed, the program needs .NET Framework 4.

To uninstall CyberGhost, delete the executable file. To reverse the changes made, you have to open the Windows directory and delete the following files: perfc, perfc.dll, and perfc.dat.
