WCRY-Ransomeware-Mutex

Just a quick console program written in MASM to prevent the WCRY ransomware from encrypting files on a machine. It creates a mutex with the same name that the ransomware uses to stop from running its code more than once.

This does not prevent EternalBlue/DoublePulsar from owning your machine. Update and patch your machine. More Info here: http://willgenovese.com/m17-010-eternalblue/

How to: Run the exe and minimize the window to your taskbar and leave running.
