[email protected] Ransomware is a dangerous file encrypting virus that can also delete those files if the ransom amount is not payed within the specified time frame by the malware. It has been detected that the ransomware is based upon HiddenTear source code which is publicly available and has been exploited by other ransomware before. The virus has been designed to download the file encrypting scripts as soon as it installs within the system. [email protected] Ransomware scans the system for the important files that need to be encrypted and which can help in bringing the system to a stop. Thus users will be left with no other option but to pay the ransom amount that they have been informed about. Upon successfully encrypting the files, it leaves a ransom note behind that is used to inform users regarding the attack and the process that they need to carry out if they want to obtain a decryption key that is promised to help them with restoring their files in working condition. [email protected] Ransomware should not be trusted by users to fulfill its promise as such malware attacks are only designed to obtain money from the affected users. Ransomware such as these are also known to ask users to install a decryption software that will help in the decryption process, however such programs can hide other malicious scripts that can be used to damage the system further and carryout specific attacks.

[email protected] Ransomware gets an easy access to a vulnerable system through means of spam mails and software bundles. The spam messages are specially crafted to deceive users and drop payload within the system. They carry design template of reputed firms that helps in making them appear legitimate. The contents within are embedded with scripts that seek permission from receiver to enable the macros that immediately install [email protected] Ransomware payload. It can also use software bundles to hide itself as a legitimate program and can thus install when users select auto installation option. Such bundles are commonly available on freeware file sharing sites. Soon after establishing itself the ransomware makes changes to registry settings of the operating system to allow auto-run of its executable file. [email protected] Ransomware then encrypts files of various formats using AES and RSA encryption algorithms and renames them with long character strings. The files become unusable as they cannot be executed by the operating system. It leaves a ransom note that warns users to pay the ransom amount or their files will be deleted at regular interval. Instead of paying a ransom amount users can remove it using this guide.
