Malware researchers have found a new ransomware infection – Rsa-ni Ransomware. It seems that it targets companies only, so individual users should not find it on their computers. Speaking specifically, this threat targets servers and networks belonging to companies and, because of this, they should take all security measures to prevent it from showing up on their computers and servers. This ransomware infection has been developed by cyber criminals seeking to obtain a lot of money from victims, so it does not surprise us at all that Rsa-ni Ransomware is used as the main tool for money extortion. We are strictly against sending money to malicious software developers, but we are not in charge here, so you will need to decide what to do yourself. No matter what you decide to do, you should know that this ransomware infection will not disappear from your network and/or server when cyber criminals behind Rsa-ni Ransomware receive the money transferred to them. You will need to erase it yourself. Ransomware infections belong to the group of harmful malware, so we cannot promise that it will be that simple to delete this threat.
Unlike some other ransomware-type infections, Rsa-ni Ransomware does not lock any files on compromised machines. The only symptom showing that this malicious application has already affected your network/system is the presence of a new .txt file Attention!!! Your data breaches!!!.txt (find the text it contains below this paragraph). This file is dropped on affected computers immediately after it infiltrates them. It becomes clear after reading its first sentence how Rsa-ni Ransomware works. Even though it does not lock any file like some other ransomware-type infections do, it copies important data and then threatens to leak it if the ransom is not paid soon. Since companies have thousands of private files, Rsa-ni Ransomware can really cause serious problems to them if it leaks their data. If you are about to pay money in exchange for the safety of the private data too, you should not rush to do that, in our opinion, because you cannot be so sure that cyber criminals will not leak your company’s data even if you pay the money required. Also, the chances are high that crooks do not even have these files they talk about and, as a consequence, they cannot leak anything to the public. Last but not least, companies should not transfer money to malicious software developers because they will encourage them to develop new harmful threats by making a payment.
Rsa-ni Ransomware is a typical ransomware infection, so our researchers suspect that it is spread exactly like other threats belonging to the crypto-malware category – via malicious emails. Most probably, it infiltrates computers when users click on malicious links they find inside these emails, or it slithers onto their computers and then affects the entire network when the malicious attachment is opened. These attachments and emails they promote do not look harmless at all. For example, these malicious attachments holding the ransomware infection might even pretend to be invoices or other important documents. It is not easy to recognize the malicious email, especially if it has not been filtered to the Spam folder automatically by the email provider, so companies should educate their employees in order to lower the chances of allowing malware to their networks/servers. According to our security specialists, there must be security software installed on all computers connected to the Internet as well because it might not be easy to prevent malware from entering computers in all the cases.
We cannot promise that it will be a piece of cake to remove Rsa-ni Ransomware manually, but if you decide to erase it in a manual way, check the list of active processes first and kill malicious ones. Then, find the malicious file, i.e. the launcher of the ransomware infection and delete it. Make sure you do this on all computers within the network. Alternatively, an automated antimalware tool can be used to erase this harmful malicious application.
