CoderWare Ransomware Description
The CoderWare Ransomware is a potent malware threat that aims to extort money from its victims after locking up their computer files with uncrackable encryption. So far, CoderWare has not been classified as part of any of the already established ransomware families, and as a result, it can be considered as a unique crypto locker threat.
When CoderWare encrypts a file, it appends '.DEMON' as a new extension to the file's original name. The threat then delivers a ransom note with instructions from the hackers both as text files and displayed in a pop-up window. The text files are named 'README.txt' and will be dropped in every folder that contains the encrypted data. The text from the pop-up window and in the text files is identical.
According to the note, the cybercriminals responsible for unleashing the CoderWare Ransomware want to be paid $1000 in exchange for the restoration of the encrypted user files. The transaction must be completed using the Bitcoin cryptocurrency with the money being sent to the provided wallet address. When the victims transfer the sum, they are expected to reach out to the hackers by using the 'email@example.com' email address. Two additional communication channels also are provided - the @Codersan telegram account and the WhatsApp number +63 997 401 3126.
CoderWare threatens its victims that if 10 hours elapse without the ransom being paid, the hackers will either delete the decryption keys or the encrypted files. A countdown timer ticking down from 10 hours will be displayed in the bottom section of the pop-up window generated by the threat.
