“Cancer Ransomware Forgets how to Ransomware”


 

 

 

 

Okay guys, this one is tricky!

“This Trojan behaves like a ransomware, but during our analysis it failed to show a warning or instructions on how to regain files and send the payment – the most common sign of a ransomware infection.” So in other words, this ransomware is turning out to be more annoying than anything. This time though, during infection an image of a face appears multiple times floating across your desktop, and then once your computer is infected the Trojan changes your desktop’s background image.

This “ransomware” makes your computer so unstable that it will just bluescreen and shutdown. At this point you will not be able to reboot because the operating system boot related files are now encrypted. This is where it doesn’t seem like the usually ransomware because there is no warning message for payment or anything. It just completely shuts down.

Make sure you have a backup system in place and that you back up your files frequently so that if one day you find yourself in a situation such as this you still have all of your files to retrieve. Call us today to find out more about how to backup your files.
