Little Snitch effective against KeRanger ransomware?

Post by hismaimai8888 » Thu Nov 22, 2018 6:42 am

I'm a longtime user of Little Snitch. With the reports this morning of an effective ransomware attack on Macs - KeRanger - I'm wondering if Little Snitch would be useful in blunting an attack if my Mac was infected. Supposedly, KeRanger contacts outside servers which leads me to think that Little Snitch would at least alert me to this activity. I have Little Snitch set to alert me about any outgoing connection attempt (that I haven't already approved).
