DDT Ransomware

What is DDT Ransomware?

DDT Ransomware is a malicious ransomware infection, and it comes with the intention to rip you off. Ransomware programs are really good at scaring users into paying the ransom fees. DDT Ransomware and other similar infections make the impression that the only way to recover affected files is by paying the ransom fee.

Needless to say, you should keep your money to yourself. Paying the ransom may not even solve the problem. You need to remove DDT Ransomware first, and then look for other ways to restore your data. If you find yourself at your wit’s end, do not hesitate to address a professional.test

Where does DDT Ransomware come from?

It is very often that we can indicate the ransomware family, but that barely does any help to the end users who get infected with it. For instance, we could say that DDT Ransomware is a variant of Globe Imposter 2.0, but that wouldn’t say much to you, now would it? Hence, although it is important to know where our enemies come from, it is far more important to know HOW ransomware spreads, so that we could prevent similar infections from entering target systems worldwide.

Our research team says that DDT Ransomware must spread using the main ransomware distribution methods. That would spam email and unsafe RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) configuration. It also means that this infection might be distributed through spear phishing attacks, when only particular targets are targeted by the cybercriminals who create or distribute ransomware.

In fact, it is far more likely that a ransomware infection will target corporate computer systems as opposed to individual desktops. After all, it is far more likely that a business will be willing to pay the ransom, and they will have the funds for it. On the other hand, it doesn’t mean that they HAVE to pay it.

Businesses (and individual users as well) would benefit more from investing in cybersecurity and cybersecurity education. Just reading a little bit on how things like DDT Ransomware spread around would do a lot more. For instance, you would know that this infection enters systems via spam email attachments. Then you would be more careful about the emails you receive and the attachments you download. Finally, you could always scan the downloaded files before opening them, this way limiting the possibility of a malware attack. Therefore, it might not be possible to stop the ransomware infection once it is on the target system, but it is still possible to prevent it from entering your PC.

What does DDT Ransomware do?

As it is a regular ransomware infection, it works just like one. So, it enters your system proceeds to encrypt your personal files. It should be pointed out that ransomware programs seldom encrypt system files because they still need the system to function if they intend to collect ransom payments. However, it is very likely that all the files in the %USERPROFILE% directory will be encrypted, and the system will no longer be able to read them.

Once the encryption is complete, DDT Ransomware will display a ransom note in a pop-up window. The ransom note says the following:



To recover data you need decryptor.
To get the decryptor you should:

Send 1 test image or text file dresdent@protonmail.com
In the letter include your personal ID (look at the beginning of this document).
We will give you the decrypted file and assign the price for decryption all files

As you can see, DDT Ransomware doesn’t even indicate the exact amount you are expected to pay for the decryption. You have to wait for these criminals to contact you with further instructions, and that is totally humiliating.

How do I remove DDT Ransomware?

We also shouldn’t forget that DDT Ransomware might as well just scram with the ransom payment, without even issuing the decryption key in the first place. In fact, the best way to get your files back is to restore them from an external backup. If you are serious about your system’s security, you will have copies of your files saved either on an external hard drive or a cloud drive. This way, you can delete the encrypted files along with DDT Ransomware, and then transfer healthy copies back into your PC.

If, by any chance, you do not have a file backup, you may need to address a professional for other file recovery options. As it is with ransomware, removing the infection doesn’t automatically cancel out the things it has done.
