Threat Database Ransomware Andrianov Ransomware

Andrianov Ransomware

Researchers have discovered a new ransomware known as Andrianov. This threatening software encrypts data, modifies the filenames of all locked files, changes the desktop wallpaper, and drops a file called 'andrianov.txt' containing contact information, payment details and the demands of the threat actors. The filenames of all encrypted files are appended with an extension, such as '.1iyT6bav7VyWM5,' which may vary depending on the variant of Andrianov. It is believed that this threat is based on the Chaos Ransomware family.

Andrianov Ransomware's Demands

Victims of the Andrianov Ransomware are told by the attackers that their personal files, including any documents, photos, PDFs, databases, and other important files, have been encrypted with a unique key. Typically, the only way to restore access to these encrypted files is to pay the ransom and obtain the private decryption key that only the threat actors possess. Victims are warned against attempting to remove the ransomware threat as it may cause permanent data loss. To pay the ransom, victims must send $200 in Bitcoin to the provided BTC wallet and then contact the attackers via email (''). Failure to do so will supposedly result in permanent data loss.

How can Users Protect Their Devices from Ransomware Threats Like the Andrianov Ransomware?

The first line of defense against ransomware is having a robust anti-malware solution. Be sure that your security program and other applications are up-to-date so they can better protect you against new threats as they emerge. Additionally, having regular backups of your data stored in an external location, such as on hard drives or cloud storage, can prove invaluable if attacked by ransomware – enabling you to quickly recover necessary files back rather than potentially paying out significant amounts of money to cybercriminals.
