Has this new ransomware been tested so as not to evade COMODO sandbox?

Thanks.

The simple solution is to disable macros within Word, specifically Office 365.
Please follow Comodo Forum Policy

Bah! Ban 'em all! The only good member is a banned member
And a member is just a policy violator who hasn't been caught yet. >:-D

Cryptolockers should be contained by the sandbox. Please also add all data folders to the Protected Data Folders just in case.
