Kolz Ransomware Description
The Kolz Ransomware is designed to target all popular files and encrypt them with cryptographic algorithms that cannot be brute-forced. This ensures that the hackers behind the ransomware threat are the only ones that possess the decryption key needed for the restoration of the files. When the Kolz Ransomware encrypts a file, it appends the extension '.kolz' to the original filename. The instructions left by the hackers are dropped in the form of a text file named '_readme.txt' that is created in every folder containing locked data. The Kolz Ransomware is a newly discovered ransomware threat that belongs to the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family.
Victims of the Kolz Ransomware are provided with two email addresses for contact with the cybercriminals. The primary address is email@example.com, while the reserve email is 'firstname.lastname@example.org.' The ransom specifies that the sum demanded by the hackers in exchange for the decryption tool and key is $980. If the users affected by the Kolz Ransomware establish contact within the first 72 hours of the infection, they would be offered a 50% reduction and the price goes to $490. They also can send one file to be decrypted for free. The note doesn't mention any restrictions for the file, only that it shouldn't contain valuable information.
Handling the aftermath of a ransomware infection is not easy. Many users might be tempted to make the payment to the hackers. However, it may not be the best unravelment, according to most infosec experts. There are no guarantees that the hackers would honor their end of the bargain and not simply walk away with the money and start working on their next malware threat.
