Wana Decrypt0r Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware Description
The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware is designed to mimic the WannaCry Ransomware infection, a well-known ransomware Trojan that received substantial media attention in May of 2017. The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware claims to be a Syrian version of the WannaCry Ransomware, and it is designed to infect computers running the Windows operating system. The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware is not a WannaCry variant, and there is no relationship between the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware and that sophisticated ransomware Trojan. The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware is a variant of HiddenTear, an open source ransomware engine that has spawned countless ransomware variants since it was first made public in August of 2015. Although the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware is not designed as a variant of WannaCry, the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware is still capable of carrying out an effective ransomware attack that can compromise the computer users' files. Because of this, PC security analysts strongly advise taking precautions, especially by establishing backup systems and taking extra care when handling any spam email or email attachments or links.
How the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware Attacks a Computer
PC security analysts have detected various other ransomware Trojans trying to emulate WannaCry, which was responsible for thousands of attacks around the world and received lots of attention. There are two versions of the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware. The first one of these marks the files encrypted in the attack with the file extension '.wannacry' and seems to be an early release of the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware. The second version of the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware uses a longer extension to mark the files: '.Wana Decrypt0r Trojan-Syria Editi0n,' which is added to the end of every file name. The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware also will change the infected computer's desktop image into a pirate flag with the message 'THE INTERNET All the PIRACY, none of the SCURVY.'
Con Artists can Profit from an Attack by the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware
The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware in both versions demands the payment of $50 USD in BitCoins. Although this is not as large as the amount demanded by these threats, criminals will seldom keep their promise to provide the decryption key, instead demanding additional ransom payments or ignoring the victim altogether. Because of this, computer users should use backup copies to recover the affected files. The Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware infection itself can be deleted with a reliable security program. Both versions of the Trojan-Syria Editi0n Ransomware use some variant of the following ransom note to demand payment:
