Hese Ransomware

Hese Ransomware Description

There are countless ransomware threats circulating the Web with new ones emerging daily. Malware researchers are struggling to keep up with all the new data-locking Trojans that pop-up on a regular basis.

Propagation and Encryption

One of the most recently uncovered file-encrypting Trojans is the Hese Ransomware. Once it was dissected, this ransomware threat revealed to be a variant of the notorious STOP Ransomware. Malware experts have not reached a consensus regarding the propagation methods involved in the spreading of this ransomware threat. Some believe that the attackers are using the most common methods of propagating threats of this type, which are mass spam email campaigns, bogus application updates and pirated fake variants of popular software. As soon as the Hese Ransomware infects a host, it will scan it to locate the files of interest. The Hese Ransomware targets a very long list of file types. Next, begins the encryption process. The Hese Ransomware applies an encryption algorithm that will lock all the targeted files. The names of the locked files will be changed because the Hese Ransomware appends a ‘.hese’ extension to the file names. For example, an audio file called ‘conquest.mp3’ will be renamed to ‘conquest.mp3.hese’ once the encryption process is completed.

The Ransom Note

In the next step of the attack, the Hese Ransomware drops its ransom note. The note is called ‘_readme.txt’ and states:

The ransom fee required by the attackers is $980. However, they claim to give a 50% discount to all victims who manage to contact them within 72 hours of the attack, meaning they will have to pay $490 instead of the full price. There are two emails provided as a way to contact the individuals behind the Hese Ransomware – ‘gorentos@bitmessage.ch’ and ‘gerentoshelp@firemail.cc.’ For the users who prefer Telegram over communicating via email, the attackers have given out their Telegram contact details too - @datarestore. As proof that the creators of the Hese Ransomware have a working decryption key, they offer the victim to unlock one file free of charge.

It is best always to ignore the requests of cybercriminals. More often than not, they do not hold up their end of the bargain but will gladly take your money. Instead, download and install a legitimate anti-malware solution and use it to remove the Hese Ransomware from your PC safely and swiftly.
