What is Scarab Oneway ransomware? And how does it execute its attack?

Scarab Oneway ransomware is yet another one of the latest variants the infamous Scarab ransomware group has released. According to security experts, this new variant might be targeting Russian users mostly as the contents of its ransom note are written, Russian. It uses the .oneway extension to mark the files it encrypts. Ransom note and extension aside, just like other new variants of Scarab, this one has no changes when it comes to how it executes its attack.

The instant it manages to infiltrate a targeted computer, it will drop its malicious payload which will be the one to start the execution of its attack – during which the malicious payload will employ a data gathering module used to gather data about the infected machine and its user. After it gathers data, it will send it into a remote server controlled by the developers of Scarab Oneway ransomware. It then adds more malicious files into the system that helps it from getting detected by any programs installed. It also makes modifications in the Windows Registry to make sure that it can run on every system startup. Following these changes, it will begin searching for files with specific file types to encrypt and once it finds them, the encryption process begins. After the encryption, it adds the .oneway suffic to every affected file and will release a ransom note named Расшифровать файлы oneway.TXT written in Russian such as:
