dc.description.abstractCrypto-Ransomware are a type of extortion-based malware that encrypt victims’ personal files with strong encryption algorithms and blackmail victims to pay ransom to recover their files. The recurrent episodes of high-profile ransomware attacks like WannaCry and Petya, particularly on healthcare, government agencies and big corporates, have highlighted the immediate demand for effective defense mechanisms. In this paper, RANDETER is introduced as a novel anti-crypto-ransomware solution that deters ransomware activities.--Excerpten_US
