LANDSLIDE Ransomware Description
So far, the LANDSLIDE Ransomware appears to be somewhat unique as it has not been classified as a part of any of the pre-existing ransomware families. The threat operates as a typical representative of this type of malware, though. Its main goal is to successfully infiltrate the targeted computer and then initiate an encryption process involving a powerful cryptographic algorithm. As a result, users will be completely locked out of either accessing or using their own private or work-related files.
The LANDSLIDE Ransomware follows a complex pattern when it comes to renaming the files it encrypts. The treat first slaps an email address belonging to the hackers, followed by a unique ID assigned to the victim in the front of the file's original name. In addition, '.LANDSLIDE' will be appended as a new file extension. The email address used in naming the files is 'email@example.com.' The ransom note containing the instructions from the hackers is delivered in two forms - as a text file named '#ReadThis.TXT' and as a file named '#ReadThis.HTA.'
The note specifies that the ransom must be paid using Bitcoin. In addition, users are instructed to initiate contact by sending a message to the same email address found in the names of the encrypted files - 'firstname.lastname@example.org.' If there is no answer within 24 hours, the alternative email email@example.com should be used. Victims of the LANDSLIDE Ransomware are allowed to attach a single file between 100 and 200 KB in size to be decrypted for free.
