What is Scarab Ukrain ransomware? And how does it carry out its attack?

Scarab Ukrain ransomware is a new file-encrypting malware designed to encrypt important files in an infected PC. This crypto-malware is also one of the latest additions to the Scarab ransomware family. It uses the .ukrain extension in marking the files it encrypts. Once it starts to carry out its attack, it drops a malicious payload in the system which is used to initiate a connection to a remote Command and Control server managed by the attackers. The instant the connection is established it downloads its malicious components from this remote server and places them on system folders. After that, it employs a data gathering module used to obtain data about the user and the infected computer. The harvested data are then used for another module called stealth protection used to secure the success of the ransomware’s attack without any interference from any security programs.

Once all the changes in the system are applied, Scarab Ukrain ransomware begins to scan the computer in search for files to encrypt. It may target popular files like documents, database, images, videos, archives, audio files and many more. After it encrypts targeted files, it appends the .ukrain suffix to each one of them. It also releases a text file named “HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES.txt” which contains the following ransom note written in Russian:
