  4. Check file type changes to help stop Ramsonware

    Trace file type change.
    This would help with Ramsonware.
    They change the file type from eg. Excel file type to something else due to encryption and they do it on several files within a short period of time.

  7. Monitor directory only during specific times

    Add an option to allow monitoring a directory only during specific times during the day (such as business hours). Outside of the configured range the monitor will be disabled and no events will be logged or acted upon.

    The range should cater for days of the week and times during that day. Would having a month option be useful (to monitor only in January for example)?

    This should be possible now as a directory plugin. This will use the creation/modification date on the files to determine the age and possibly touch the dates when the file is detected. Periodic scans will take place to determine ages and and a new event called “Expired” will be created when old files are detected.

  10. Web View Plugin

    A plugin that allows Directory Monitor to publish events over HTTP or Web Sockets so that you can monitor activity over the internet.

    Using a technology such as SignalR (http://signalr.net/), real-time events from Directory Monitor could easily be consumed from a web page over the internet.

    You would configure an HTTP end-point that SignalR clients could connect to and listen for events on their configured directories. The end-point provided could be a completely custom site. An example monitoring page will be provided as well.

  11. Linux support using Mono

    When v2 of Directory Monitor started being developed, I kept Mono (http://www.mono-project.com/) in mind to also support Linux and had the application running using Mono in Ubuntu.

    I have not been actively testing Directory Monitor in Linux although it is entirely possible to have a functional build that will provide the same features on a Linux distribution running Mono.

    If there is enough interest in this (votes) then I will provide an official build and fully supported version to the public.

  12. SMS Plugin

    A plugin that can send the event information as an SMS to configured mobile numbers.

    Could use a service like CardboardFish (http://www.cardboardfish.com/) to send the SMS. Are there any other services available like this?

  15. Cryptolocker / ransomware

    Hello there, I'm a very happer user of your product, I generally do not use it for anything else but trying to catch a cryptolocker / ransomware in the act.

    I believe I have configured it so it works very well,

    my biggest "issue" is that because I have the software looking at so many servers / pc's it takes forever to edit each job, Could it be possible if that you create a template, let's say a group. a group called "ransomware" and then inside the job under Main -> Filters instead of typing in each Include patterns that…

    This is a very common use case for a lot of users. The actions that users take however varies quite a bit based on their own requirements. Some people configure firewall rules, some run removal tools, some shut-down the PC etc, in almost all cases and email is sent. For us to provide this configuration and necessary filters out -of-the-box would require a significant investment in continued research of crypto malware in order to keep monitoring effective.

    That being said, we may still pursue this because when configured correctly, Directory Monitor is very effective as an early detection system for crypto viruses and has already been successful in numerous live installations. With enough support for this idea we may take this on.

  20. 1st. Show us how-to on Growl; 2nd. Besides email alert, please add text so that DM can send text alert to cell phone
