'firstname.lastname@example.org' Ransomware Description
The 'email@example.com' Ransomware is an encryption ransomware Trojan. The 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Ransomware was released in the first week of September 2018 and carries out a typical version of a ransomware tactic. The 'email@example.com' Ransomware takes the victim's files hostage and then demands a ransom payment to restore access to the affected files.
How the 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Ransomware Attacks a Computer
Threats like the 'email@example.com' Ransomware are first delivered to the victim's computer through a corrupted email attachment. These attachments are commonly in the form of Microsoft Word documents with damaged embedded macros that download and install the 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Ransomware onto the victim's computer. Once the 'email@example.com' Ransomware has been installed on the victim's computer, this threat will try to encrypt the victim's files using a strong encryption algorithm. Some versions that PC security researchers have studied, however, were not capable of encrypting data, and the 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Ransomware attack may vary from one version to the other. The 'email@example.com' Ransomware, unlike other ransomware Trojans, does not seem to rename the files it targets in its attack. Malware like the 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Ransomware is designed to encrypt the user-generated files, which may include files with the following file extensions:
.jpg, .jpeg, .raw, .tif, .gif, .png, .bmp, .3dm, .max, .accdb, .db, .dbf, .mdb, .pdb, .sql, .dwg, .dxf, .cpp, .cs, .h, .php, .asp, .rb, .java, .jar, .class, .py, .js, .aaf, .aep, .aepx, .plb, .prel, .prproj, .aet, .ppj, .psd, .indd, .indl, .indt, .indb, .inx, .idml, .pmd, .xqx, .xqx, .ai, .eps, .ps, .svg, .swf, .fla, .as3, .as, .txt, .doc, .dot, .docx, .docm, .dotx, .dotm, .docb, .rtf, .wpd, .wps, .msg, .pdf, .xls, .xlt, .xlm, .xlsx, .xlsm, .xltx, .xltm, .xlsb, .xla, .xlam, .xll, .xlw, .ppt, .pot, .pps, .pptx, .pptm, .potx, .potm, .ppam, .ppsx, .ppsm, .sldx, .sldm, .wav, .mp3, .aif, .iff, .m3u, .m4u, .mid, .mpa, .wma, .ra, .avi, .mov, .mp4, .3gp, .mpeg, .3g2, .asf, .asx, .flv, .mpg, .wmv, .vob, .m3u8, .dat, .csv, .efx, .sdf, .vcf, .xml, .ses, .qbw, .qbb, .qbm, .qbi, .qbr , .cnt, .des, .v30, .qbo, .ini, .lgb, .qwc, .qbp, .aif, .qba, .tlg, .qbx, .qby , .1pa, .qpd, .txt, .set, .iif, .nd, .rtp, .tlg, .wav, .qsm, .qss, .qst, .fx0, .fx1, .mx0, .fpx, .fxr, .fim, .ptb, .ai, .pfb, .cgn, .vsd, .cdr, .cmx, .cpt, .csl, .cur, .des, .dsf, .ds4, , .drw, .eps, .ps, .prn, .gif, .pcd, .pct, .pcx, .plt, .rif, .svg, .swf, .tga, .tiff, .psp, .ttf, .wpd, .wpg, .wi, .raw, .wmf, .txt, .cal, .cpx, .shw, .clk, .cdx, .cdt, .fpx, .fmv, .img, .gem, .xcf, .pic, .mac, .met, .pp4, .pp5, .ppf, .nap, .pat, .ps, .prn, .sct, .vsd, .wk3, .wk4, .xpm, .zip, .rar.
