Ransomware becomes more and more threatening nowadays. In this paper, we propose CLDSafe, a novel and efficient file backup system against ransomware. It keeps shadow copies of files and provides secure restoration using cloud storage when a computer is infected by ransomware. After our system measures file similarities between a new file on the client and an old file on the server, the old file on the server is backed up securely when the new file is changed substantially. And then, only authenticated users can restore the backup files by using challenge-response mechanism. As a result, our proposed solution will be helpful in recovering systems from ransomware damage.
