What is Ramsey Ransomware?

 

 

There are countless ransomware existing nowadays, Ramsey is one of them. It  is basically a Turkish version of Jigsaw ransomware. This is basically a file-encrypting virus that uses RSA-2048 and RSA-256 algorithms to encrypt files on the infected computer. Tis malware primarily aims at various audio, video, image, text and many other files, and append the .ram file extension to each of the encrypted files that mark the file being infected. Once completed, it displays a ransom note written in the Turkish language that comes in a program window that includes the main information about data encryption, provides data decryption conditions and instructions, demands payment, and gives Bitcoin wallet address, provides contact email address (ramsey34.ramsey34@vfmail.net) has “View encrypted files” button and a timer that counts how much time has left until deletion of one random file being encrypted. Ramsey ransomware asks to pay the amount of 100 Turkish Lira or at least 25 USD. Or else, victims will experience a tremendous damage, it claims. Nevertheless, the ransom size is actually not huge; so don’t bother to transfer it. Even the small amount of money is a motivates cyber criminals to continue their cyber crimes and pushes them to create even more dangerous viruses to generate more revenue. Instead of paying the ransom, you should try either Jigsaw decryptor, use backups for the files or try alternative recovery methods that are safer and do not require having the presence or having business with cyber criminals. But first, you need to scan the computer with SpyRemover Pro or other security tool and remove Ramsey from the system.

Mainly, this malware enters on the system as an obfuscated Ramsey_Ransomware.exe file. Once it has infected on the system, Ramsey starts completing its tasks. The virus usually modifies the system in order to run on system startup, make Registry entries, and install many malicious files. When its presence is strong enough on the device, it starts data encryption procedure. So basically, the ransomware not only damages your files but also  makes the system vulnerable and highly at risk too. Thus, it might open more portals and help other malware to launch other successful cyber attacks through it. It’s another reason why you should not allow the delay the Ramsey removal because it may lead to more computer and privacy-related problems than you already have.

 

 

Sneaky distribution tactics of the ransomware virus

Like the other ransomware, Ramsey is no exception and it might be using several distribution and infiltration strategies, such as attachments through malicious spam emails and their attachments, malvertising, exploit kits, fake software updates and  downloads. Cyber criminals are smart and usually use clever social engineering techniques to trick people into opening an infected email attachment or popup ads. They could take form from reliable organizations or companies such as the banks, hospitals, delivery services, etc.), and inform about serious issues. It would thrill you with a short notice about the issue and more information about the problem is usually provided in the attached document or users have to click on a button and visit a crafted site. Once they are tricked and clicked on that, Ramsey ransomware payload is dropped and executed on the system. The malicious executable will be installed the moment the person clicks on a malware-laden ad or installs software from unknown file-sharing sites or torrents. Besides, ransomware might also be capable of using system vulnerabilities and outdated software to enter the system to do just that cleverly. Thus, not only you should behave carefully online or be cautious but keep your software up-to-date too to avoid crypto-malware.
