Mns Cryptolocker Ransomware
We have recently received information about a new ransomware-type computer infection that has been dubbed Mns Cryptolocker Ransomware. It is said that this program encrypts a user’s files and demands a ransom to decrypt them. However, there is no guarantee that you will receive the promised decryption key due to the way this ransomware works. For more information about it, we invite you to read this full description as it contains the most relevant information about Mns Cryptolocker Ransomware to date.
This ransomware was discovered only recently, and we have not acquired a working sample that we could test. Nevertheless, we have managed to dig up some credible and relevant information that will convince you that this application is highly malicious and should not be toyed with. This ransomware should use some kind of AES or RSA-based encryption algorithm, but it might even use both because the AES is used to encrypt files and the RSA key is used to encrypt the AES key. It should target the most widely used file formats which mean that it will encrypt your documents, videos, audios, pictures, and even applications. Obviously, this ransomware targets files that are more likely to contain valuable information for which the victim would be compelled to pay the ransom.
While encrypting the targeted files, Mns Cryptolocker Ransomware does not append them with a distinct file extension, so the files appear to be unmodified. However, if you try to open them, then you will get a message that the file is damaged. This ransomware does not change the background image of the desktop, open any windows or run itself upon next system startup. Moreover, it might even delete itself once it has completed its task. It will also delete Shadow Volume Copies of your files with the “vssadmin DELETE SHADOWS /all /quiet” command.
It should leave a note on your desktop that contains information on what you should do to get your files back. The note says that you need to send 02 BTC which is an approximate 180 USD. The note features a unique ID that you have to send to firstname.lastname@example.org after you send the ransom payment to the provided Bitcoin wallet at 19o4mEEgQhMDSWfsKcDgm8RjT16cCa33Xq. Once you do that, the cybercriminals that created this ransomware will hopefully contact you and give you the decryption key/software.
We have received information stating that this particular ransomware is being disseminated through email spam and/or fake advertisements. Both methods are extremely effective and are proven methods of getting computers of unwary users infected with ransomware. The emails should feature an attachment that might look like a PDF or Word document but download with ransomware when opened. The same goes for the fake ads as they should secretly download it when you click them. There needs to be more information to draw an accurate conclusion about this ransomware.
Still, it is clear as day that Mns Cryptolocker Ransomware is one dangerous application that can enter your computer by stealth if you do not have a powerful anti-malware application. Because we do not know where its main executable is located and how many files this ransomware consist of, we recommend that you remove it using SpyHunter, an anti-malware application that will make light work of this pesky infection.
