Stampado Ransomware DescriptionType: Ransomware
The Stampado Ransomware is a threat that is available for con artists to use currently. The Stampado Ransomware is being distributed on the Dark Web, available to would-be con artists for a mere $39 USD in exchange for a lifetime license to use this threat. This is extremely cheap, making the Stampado Ransomware particularly threatening because of the possibility of a marked increase in threat attacks as a result of this threat being easily available. Most ransomware Trojans cost con artists hundreds of dollars each month, at least. The Stampado Ransomware is a new development in the RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) model in that the Stampado Ransomware has the potential to become extremely popular. Essentially, when the con artists pay for the Stampado Ransomware, they get a program that allows them to build a version of the Stampado Ransomware that matches the type of attack they are planning on carrying out (allowing them to customize the amount of the ransom or other variables in the attack). The con artist would also gain access to a control panel to control and carry out attacks involving the Stampado Ransomware.
The Stampado Ransomware can be Purchased by a Very Affordable Price
The authors of the Stampado Ransomware offer versions of the Stampado Ransomware with payload files in different file types, including EXE, BAT, SCR, CMD and DLL. Malware analysts noted the attention the Stampado Ransomware was receiving after a video appeared on the Dark Web guiding potential buyers on how the Stampado Ransomware works and how they could purchase this threatening ransomware Trojan at an extremely low price. There are numerous similarities between the Stampado Ransomware and other threat families, including that it uses the '.LOCKED' file extension to identify the files that were encrypted during its attack. Ransom notes written in barely legible broken English are very common, which also makes it worth to point out that the Stampado Ransomware's default ransom note is written in well-worded English that is clear in its content and instructions for the victim.
The Scary Tactic Used by the Stampado Ransomware
The Stampado Ransomware is relatively new. At the price that the Stampado Ransomware is being distributed, it is very likely that we will see the Stampado Ransomware infections in the near future. During the attack, the Stampado Ransomware's ransom and grace period can be customized. Once the grace period is over, the Stampado Ransomware deletes a file at random every six hours. This is very similar to the attack strategy followed by the Jigsaw Ransomware. Since the Stampado Ransomware hasn't been observed in the wild yet, a decryption utility still has to be developed. However, computer users should be on the lookout for this newcomer and take appropriate precautions to prevent these attacks.

The RaaS business is on the rise, particularly because encryption Trojans like the Stampado Ransomware offer ill-minded people a quick and easy way to monetize their attacks. This means that numerous new iterations of this type of threat are hitting the market. Threat distributors are the customers for these threats, and the developers try to outdo their competition constantly. In the case of the Stampado Ransomware, it is clear that the con artists are aiming to attract as many buyers as possible, both through its aggressive advertising campaign on the Dark Web and its very low price in comparison with its competitors.
