RansomSaver is an Outlook add-on that detects and protects against emails that contain ransomware.
E-mail is one of the main transporters of ransomware and while there are other ways of distribution, emails are still the preferred option as attackers can send millions of users in a very short space of time.
RansomSaver is an add-on for Microsoft Outlook, which is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Outlook, from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2016 and Office 365 Outlook. It can run on all Microsoft systems that are newer to Windows XP.
The application installs as an Outlook add-on and automatically integrates with Outlook. It seems to work perfectly and with several choices.
The main function of the program is scanning for ransomware. It checks the emails you choose for ransomware attachments and can delete the entire message or the attachment only.
The add-in moves emails to a special folder called RansomSaver that creates as a sub-folder of your deleted ones.

The add-on programmer does not report how his application can determine whether an attachment is malicious or not, but gives a list of the extensions that RansomSaver considers to be suspicious.
With the application, you can enable or disable removing attachments or entire messages, turn off scanning until the next start of Outlook, and disable scanning of the Outlook deleted folder.
RansomSaver can be very useful for inexperienced users because experienced people can protect their systems from malicious attachments.
