Connect Ransomware Description
The Connect Ransomware is not a wholly unique threat. The Connect Ransomware is another variant of the Bondy Ransomware, which doesn't make it any less threatening. Victims of this threat will find that they can no longer access most of their files. Pictures, documents, databases, etc. all will be encrypted with a powerful cryptographic algorithm that cannot be brute-forced. Each affected file's name will be modified by having '.Connect' appended to it as a new extension. The hackers behind the Connect Ransomware deliver their instructions in text files named 'HELP_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES.txt.'
According to the note, the ransom that affected users must pay for the decryption software is $500 payable in Bitcoin. At the current exchange rate of the cryptocurrency, the amount is around 0.036 BTC. After acquiring the appropriate amount of bitcoins, victims are told to transfer them to the hackers' cryptocurrency wallet address. A single email address is provided as a communication channel - firstname.lastname@example.org. The hackers allow for a single file to be attached to the email message for free decryption.
The ransom note delivered by the Connect Ransomware is:
'Oops All Of your important files were encrypted Like document pictures videos etc..
Don't worry, you can return all your files!
All your files, documents, photos, databases and other important files are encrypted by a strong encryption.
