It acts as typical ransomware, although so far, it hasn't been classified as belonging to any of the already established ransomware families. Nevertheless, the Rastar Ransomware is capable of locking a large array of filetypes by leveraging a powerful cryptographic algorithm to encrypt them. Every file affected in this manner will have its original name changed to include '.rastar' as a new extension. The instructions from the hackers responsible for deploying the Rastar Ransomware are delivered as text files named 'HOW_TO_DECYPHER_FILES.txt' that are dropped in every folder containing encrypted data.

To further pressure their victims into making the payment, the hackers threaten to increase the supposed price after 12 hours, if 24 hours pass without the affected users making the transaction, the decryption keys necessary for the restoration of the locked data will be deleted. To initiate contact, victims are expected to use the provided email address at ''
