Threat Database Ransomware FRFO Ransomware

FRFO Ransomware

Any computer system infected with the FRFO Ransomware will effectively be 'locked' - users will not be able to either access or use their private or business-related files as the data will be encrypted with an uncrackable combination of cryptographic algorithms. The FRFO Ransomware is a threatening crypto locker threat belonging to the Matrix malware family. Every enciphered file will have its original name completely changed. The new file names generated by threat follow the pattern [Email address of the hackers].[Random 17-character string].[Ransomware extension]. In the FRFO Ransomware's case, the email address placed in the names of the encrypted files is '' while the new extension is '.FRFO.' The threat delivers a lengthy ransom note in the form of files named 'FRFO_INFO.rtf' that will be generated in every folder containing encrypted data.

The ransom note doesn't mention the exact ransom that the hackers want to receive. However, it has a sizable section dedicated to further scaring the affected user into making the payment. The cybercriminals claim to have obtained confidential data from the compromised device prior to the initiation of the threat's encryption process. If the hackers do not receive a message from their victims within the first 48 hours following the ransomware infection, they threaten to start leaking the stolen data on the Darkweb. If 96 hours pass without communication, the criminals will use any contact lists obtained from the victims to launch new ransomware attacks. In the meantime, they will be looking for any possible buyers interested in the exfiltrated victim's data.

To prevent all of this, users are instructed to send a message to all three of the provided email addresses - ',' ',' and '' Affected users are allowed to attach three small files that do not contain any valuable information to be decrypted for free.
