Will using a VPN prevent a Conti ransomware attack?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi there. I have started taking steps to preventing ransomware attacks on my laptop, one of these steps being using a VPN while using public Wi-Fi. However, I was told by a friend that Conti ransomware attacks are different to usual ransomware attacks due to the fact that this type of attack encrypts files at a high speed. I am therefore curious as to whether a VPN is effective for preventing this type of ransomware attack given how fast it encrypts files? Thanks in advance for any responses.

Conti ransomware is a computer virus that starts encrypting your data and then demands money in exchange for access to your files.

If you have an infected server or network, using a VPN will help keep your data safe by encrypting it and making it more difficult for anyone else to access it without your knowledge. While you may be able to prevent a Conti ransomware attack by using a VPN, you should keep in mind that not all VPNs are created equally. The best VPNs, like IP Vanish, will allow you to change your IP address, which can help prevent attacks from happening in the first place.
