    sebus seems to mean: UN-cover Ransomware apps which are normally covered in and/or behind something else! And that's what such 'Anti-' Apps are doing AFAIK!!

    But will it remove ransomware once it's set in and unlock the data?

    Can one avoid ransomware attacks by running Linux?

    Haven't tried so I cannot say with full certainty but Pro version does that. Read it from the website.

    When dealing with risks it is best practice to cover the three bases to prevent a home run :p:
    1=Prevention
    2=Damage control *
    3=Disaster recovery

    * AppCheck alongside many other good products covers point #2 successfully.

    Much has been said of much usefulness, but the only sure-shot way to guard yourself against ransomware, and not only is to have your data fully backed up externally.
