MindLost Ransomware Report and Removal solution

MindLost Ransomware Report

A new ransomware is discovered by security researchers that encrypts files on the attacked computer systems and redirects users to an online payment portal to pay the ransom via credit/debit card. However, the threat is not yet have an active distribution, but is in development phase so it could roll out to attack users.

The ransomware name itself as “MindLost”, but it is detected as Paggalangrypt by Microsoft. The MindLost ransomware however targets a few extensions like .c, .jpg, .mp3, .mp4, .pdf, .png, .py and .txt. It also searches for the file extension within the storage devices and folders to encrypt files.

While the searching and encrypting process within the storage mediums takes a lot of time, so the MindLost ransomware is currently targeting “C:\\Users” folder and encrypting files within.
The encrypted files are appended with .enc extension. For example a doc file named as myfile.doc will be substituted as “myfile.doc.enc”.

After the encryption been done, the MindLost ransomware downloads an image from “http://image.ibb[.]co/kO6xZ6/insane_uriel_by_urielstock_4.jpg” URL and replaces it with the desktop’s wallpaper.

This image contains the ransom note and instructions on how to recover files.

MindLost Ransomware Removal

Further, the MindLost ransomware also adds registry keys to aut0-launch its execution with every reboot of the attacked computer system.
HKU\Administrator\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

The victims are instructed to visit “http://mindlost.azurewebsites[.]net” URL in order to buy the decryption key which will unlock the files.

The strange fact about the MindLost Ransomware is that it asks for direct payment via credit/debit card instead of Bitcoins. As for direct payment the authors should provide a valid information to the merchants. This raises the question of being just scamming users to collect their credit/debit card information by showing a fake window asking for user’s card details that can be later misused for illegal actions and money frauds.

And the another fact about this shady ransomware is that it gives out the victims an “insurance” option that prevent users from getting this infection in future.

However, the Security researchers find MindLost as a garbage as compared to other file-encrypting ransomware threats previously. Also, they analyzed that it is even possible to connect to the database of the ransomware and retrieve the victim’s data including their encryption and decryption keys. Since the ransomware is still in development phase and its distribution sources yet unrevealed. So users just need to be aware of the scam and should not agree to pay to the authors of MindLost ransomware threat as it can lead to other unknown transactions.
