Threat Database Ransomware Oiltraffic Ransomware

Oiltraffic Ransomware

Another potent VoidCrypt variant has been uncovered by cybersecurity experts. Tracked as the Oiltraffic Ransomware, the threat can impact a wide range of different file types and leave them completely unusable. Affected victims will effectively lose their access to any documents, photos, PDFs, archived, databases, audio and video files and more. The attackers behind Oiltraffic demand to be paid a ransom in exchange for providing their victims with a decryption tool that could supposedly restore the data.

The main distinguishing feature of Oiltraffic Ransomware from other members of the VoidCrypt Ransomware family can be found in the names of the locked files. The threat adds to them an ID string, an email address, and a new file extension. The ID string is generated for each victim specifically while the email ('lokilocker@tutanota.xom') and file extension ('.Oiltraffic') remain the same. After processing all of the targeted data on the breached device, the malware will create a text file named 'unlock-info.txt.'

Inside the file, the victims of the threat will find a ransom note with instructions. According to the attackers' messages, the size of the demanded ransom will be based on the time it takes each victim to contact the hackers. Two emails that can serve as communication channels can be found inside the note - the '' email also found in the names of the locked files and ',' which serves as a reserve address. The note states that only ransom payments made in Bitcoin will be accepted.

The full text of the note is:
