Enable the anti-ransomeware vaccine

MSP N-central includes a vaccine tool that can protect against known and possible future versions of crypto ransomware families such as CTB-Locker, Locky and TeslaCrypt. This is known as the Anti-ransomware vaccine. The tool does this by exploiting flaws in their methods of spreading the ransomware.
