Todar Ransomware

By CagedTech in Ransomware

Malware experts have spotted a new ransomware threat emerging recently. This data-encrypting Trojan is named Todar Ransomware and appears to be a variant of the popular STOP Ransomware.

Propagation and Encryption

It is not yet clear what infection vectors are being employed in the propagation of the Todar Ransomware. However, some researchers believe that the creators of the Todar Ransomware may be using some of the most common methods of spreading ransomware threats – fake pirated variants of popular applications, bogus software updates, and spam emails containing infected attachments. Whatever method is employed, the end goal of the Todar Ransomware is one – to infiltrate your PC. Once this is done, this ransomware threat will launch a scan that is used to determine the location of the files, which will be targeted for encryption. Then, the Todar Ransomware will use an encryption algorithm to lock the data targeted. Once this ransomware threat locks a file, it amends its filename by adding an extension ‘.todar.’ This means that an audio file that was called ‘mermaid-song.mp3’ will have its name altered to ‘mermaid-song.mp3.todar.’

The Ransom Note

In the next step of the attack, the Todar Ransomware will drop its ransom note that is called ‘_readme.txt’ which complies with the standard of most STOP Ransomware variants, which have identical names of their ransom notes. The note states:
