LambdaLocker Ransomware

LambdaLocker Ransomware Description

The LambdaLocker Ransomware is a ransomware Trojan that was uncovered in January 2017. The LambdaLocker Ransomware will use a combination of the AES-256 and SHA-256 encryption to make the victim's files inaccessible. The files encrypted using the LambdaLocker Ransomware will be identified by the file extension '.lambda_l0cked.' The LambdaLocker Ransomware then drops a ransom note in the form of an HTML file named 'READ_IT.hTml' on the victim's Desktop.

There's no an Available Decryptor for the LambdaLocker Ransomware

The LambdaLocker Ransomware's ransom note delivers a message that is both in English and Chinese. This makes it likely that the LambdaLocker Ransomware infection is designed to target computer users in China. According to the LambdaLocker Ransomware's ransom note, the victim's must pay 0.5 BitCoin (approximately $450 USD) to recover the affected files. Unfortunately, the files that have been encrypted by the LambdaLocker Ransomware cannot be restored with current technology. The same technology that allows computer users to communicate online and software creators to keep their code private securely also allows these people to blackmail computer users by encrypting their files. According to the LambdaLocker Ransomware ransom note, if the ransom is not paid before a month is over, the files will be lost permanently. PC security researchers strongly advise computer users against paying the LambdaLocker Ransomware ransom. In many cases, con artists will ignore the victims entirely or even ask for more money. It is crucial to take preemptive measures to ensure that your files and computer are protected from threats like the LambdaLocker Ransomware completely.
