Threat Database Ransomware Piton Ransomware

Piton Ransomware

Cybercriminals have released a new variant of ransomware. The name of this new malware is Piton and it follows a ransomware operation plan typical of the previously detected Babuk Locker Ransomware threat, of which the Piton Ransomware is a variant. First, it is deployed to the fraudulently targeted computer, where the threat initiates an encryption process that will lock most of the victim's files. Documents, PDFs, files, databases, images, photos, etc. they will all be rendered inaccessible and unusable.

Each affected file will have '.piton' appended to its original name as a new extension. When the threat has finished locking the targeted files, it will deliver a ransom note to the system's desktop. The ransom-demanding message will be placed inside a newly created text file named 'Help Restore Your Files.txt.' 

Ransom Note's Details

The file dropped on the compromised system contains the same message translated in four different languages - English, Spanish, Russian and Portuguese. However, the instructions left by the hackers lack most of the vital details that victims of the attack would want to know. The message simply states that the locked files can be recovered by paying the cybercriminals for their decryption tool and key. Only a single email address -, is mentioned as a way to communicate with the attackers. 

The full note is:
