VBRansom Ransomware

VBRansom Ransomware Description

Type: Ransomware

The VBRansom Ransomware is a ransomware Trojan that is used to extort computer users. The VBRansom Ransomware was first observed after an encryption Trojan project was uploaded online. According to the VBRansom Ransomware's ransom note, the current version of the VBRansom Ransomware is its 'Version 7,' although it is unclear how true this may be. However, it is clear that the VBRansom Ransomware is still under development and there are aspects of the VBRansom Ransomware that are still unfinished. Analysis of the executable file linked to the VBRansom Ransomware makes it apparent that the creator of the VBRansom Ransomware plans to release the VBRansom Ransomware as a fake version of Adobe Reader, to trick computer users into opening the corrupted executable file. Other file names that have been associated to the VBRansom Ransomware include 'abc.exe' and 'ddd.exe,' both clear placeholder names. Now that the incomplete version of the VBRansom Ransomware has been uncovered by PC security researchers, it is probable that the VBRansom Ransomware's creators will make changes to their original plan of attack.

The VBRansom Ransomware Has the Potential to Carry out a Successful Attack

The executable file associated with the VBRansom Ransomware uses an outdated digital signature. Although the VBRansom Ransomware is not finished, it still can carry out a successful encryption attack by using a combination of the AES and RSA encryption. The VBRansom Ransomware prevents computer users from accessing their files. The VBRansom Ransomware encrypts files using this strong encryption method, which makes the files completely unreadable. The VBRansom Ransomware targets a wide variety of file types, mainly affecting files associated with commonly used applications such as word processing and accounting software, media files, image files, and numerous other file types. The VBRansom Ransomware attack is similar to most ransomware Trojans that are active today, which encrypt the victim's files and hold the decryption key in the Command and Control servers of the attack, out of reach of the victim and the victim's security software. The files that are encrypted by the VBRansom Ransomware are easy to identify because the VBRansom Ransomware will add the file extension '.VBRansom' to the end of each file name. Below is the text of the VBRansom Ransomware's ransom note:

'Warning From the VBRansom 7
Your Document,Photos,Videos,Databases and other Important File Has Been Encrypted by the VBRansom
To Get your File Back You must do This Several Action :
1. Download TOR Browser
3. Follow The Intruction to Decrypt your file
4. If you don't see the VBRansom Screen Your Antivirus Probaly Deleted it For Decrypting your file you must download the VBRansom Screen From :
[DOMAIN ON TOR]/vbr4nsOm.exe
Remember! Don't try to Kill,Delete and shutdown the VBRansom If you Do We will Make Your Computer Unbootable and the encrypted data cannot be decrypted anymore'

This ransom note asks the victim to use TOR, an anonymous network, to carry out the payment of the ransom. This is a method that has been associated with various other existing ransomware Trojans because it allows con artists to remain anonymous more effectively.

Dealing with the VBRansom Ransomware

Unfortunately, the files affected by the VBRansom Ransomware are not readable or recoverable without the decryption key. However, PC security researchers do not advise paying the VBRansom Ransomware's ransom amount. It is common for con artists to ignore the victims' payments or even ask for more money. Furthermore, paying the VBRansom Ransomware's ransom finances the activities of these people, which may result in additional threats. The best method to deal with the VBRansom Ransomware and similar threats is to have backup copies of all files, which allows a quick recovery by restoring the affected files from the backup copy. It is also important to have a reliable security program that is fully up-to-date to intercept the VBRansom Ransomware infection or to remove this threat completely if the infection has already occurred.
