BlackRuby Ransomware Removal Instruction

BlackRuby-Threat In Detail

BlackRuby Ransomware is the first Ransomware threat that integrates cryptocurrency mining component. This means that along with encrypting files on the attacked computer system, the threat will also employ the system’s CPU resources to mine for crypto-mining.

The Ransomware threat uses the common way of intrusion like other Ransomware which is spam mails embedded with macro-enabled document which once run will drop the payloads of the threat and install it without user’s consent. Using the same distribution method example are:‘.justice File Extension’, Xorist-Frozen Ransomware, LockMe Ransomware, Dream_dealer@aol.com and many others.

Once installed successfully, BlackRuby Ransomware uses AES-256 and RSA-2048 enciphers to encode the files like documents, images, music, videos, databases, spreadsheets, eBooks, PDFs and presentations. The encrypted files are given the white icon and the ‘Encrypted_%[random characters]%’ extension. After encryption been done, it deletes the Shadow volume copies created by Windows to make users unable to recover their files from other means.

Meanwhile, BlackRuby ransom threat drops the updated version of “XMRig” and connects to the “h[tt]ps://www.monero[.]how” URL to mine for Monero coins. However, researchers claim that the ransomware deletes its files after data is been encrypted and presents the ransom note for the victims to know about the encryption. The XMRig tool keeps running within the attacked system to continue the mining process and earn huge profit. XMRig is installed within the AppData directory.

The ransom note is a text file named as ‘how-to-decrypt-files.txt’ that instructs user to buy ‘Black Ruby Decryptor’ by paying 650 USD worth of Bitcoin in the given address of the Bitcoin wallet. The victims may communicate with the authors with the provided email address ‘TheBlackRuby@Protonmail.com’.

The ransom note by BlackRuby Ransomware reads as:

LockMe Ransomware Description

LockMe Ransomware is a file-encrypting malware program that is out in the wild and was first detected on 2nd Feb, 2018. Security researchers had reported that the threat uses AES-256 and RSA-2048 encryption algorithm to encode files on the attacked PC and appends ‘.lockme‘ extension to the encrypted files.

It is analyzed that the LockMe Ransomware mostly targets English and Russian-speaking users. And is distributed through phishing email campaigns similar like Dream_dealer@aol.com Ransomware. Unfortunately, if the user downloads the infected mail attachment that is actually a macro-enabled document containing the payloads of the virus. Upon clicking, the document starts running the script and LockMe Ransomware gets installed on the attacked computer system.

After installed, LockMe Ransomware searches for the important documents, photos, video, audio, databases, PDFs and other local drives. The infection uses AES cipher to transcode the data that are locked by the filename and the‘.lockme’ suffix. For example, blackcat.jpg is renamed to blackcat.jpg.lockme.

After the encryption process been done, then the Ransomware drops a file named as ‘README_FOR_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES.txt’ on the desktop and the encryption locations.

The ‘README_FOR_DECRYPT_YOUR_FILES.txt’ file reads as:

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.

MindLost-payment-site

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.

If you are among the one being a victim of “MindLost”, then we would strongly suggest you not to pay any ransom to illegitimate persons behind it. Because even after paying they are not going to give your files back. So it is urged that you must opt for removal solutions for MindLost and try to recover files by automatic data recovery tool or any backup copy if you have.
