Ranzy Locker Ransomware
Ranzy Locker Ransomware is a cryptolocker threat that for the moment has not been categorized as being part of any previously existing ransomware family. It operates in the typical ransomware manner, though. Its goal is to sneak onto a computer and encrypt nearly all of the user's files. As a result victims of the threat will be effectively locked out from using or accessing any of their personal or business-related files which can have disastrous consequences.
Ranzy Locker Ransomware appends '.RNZ' as a new extension to the original filenames of all encrypted files. After the encryption process has concluded, it drops a 'readme.txt' text file containing a note with instructions from the hackers as well as a file called 'id.key' in every folder containing locked data.
According to the ransom note, Ranzy Locker Ransomware is capable of deleting file backups as well as infecting computers through the local network. No specific sum is mention for the restoration of the data but the criminals are supposed to provide their victims with further instruction after being contacted through an email on the provided addresses -
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. In order to further scare affected users into carrying out their demands, the criminals state that they possess various sensitive data stolen from the compromised computer that will be leaked on their website.
