What is Ransomware?

The malicious Ransomware is almost identical to a different infection knows as Ransomware, and that is not a surprise considering that these two threats are just two different versions of what we know as GusCrypter Ransomware. The versions are recognized by the email addresses that are represented via them, and, in this report, we discuss the infection that uses “” as the main email address. We want to emphasize right away that emailing cyber criminals is a huge risk that is not worth taking. If you email your attackers, they will push you to pay a ransom, and once you do that, they will skip away without leaving a trace. A file decryptor that the infection might promise in return for your money is unlikely to fall into your hands. It is unlikely to fall into anyone’s hands for that matter! So, what are you supposed to do? Even though you might not be able to think about anything else but your files at this point, we suggest that you focus on deleting Ransomware.test

How does Ransomware work?

First, Ransomware has to enter the system, and it is likely to do that using RDP configurations or spam emails. So, if the threat has not slithered in yet, make sure you secure your remote access systems and beware of suspicious emails sent your way. If you were not able to stop the infection, it probably encrypted your precious personal files already. This is where we can start discussing the differences between Ransomware and Ransomware. Both of these threats appear to target different files, with some overlap. According to research team, some of the files that are encrypted by the newer variant include .mp4, .mp3, .ppt, .pptx, .java, .exe, and .msi. Of course, the threat does not encrypt system files in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%, and %Windows% directories, but it can encrypt basically all personal files. To make it easier for you to spot them, the “.bip” extension is added to their names. While you might be assessing the damage, the infection might be doing other malicious things. For example, it could record your system’s language, steal data stored on browsers, and even open a pot and listen for incoming connections.

Besides destroying files, Ransomware also creates one. It is called “Information.html,” and it should be created everywhere where encrypted files exist. The name of this file is not the same as the one used by a previously reported version, but the message stays the same. It informs that encrypted files were, allegedly, “blocked” and instructs to send an ID code and the name of your country to What would happen if you did as told? Once the attackers catch a victim, they can offer to decrypt files for a certain sum of money (a.k.a., the ransom). Do not pay anything because it is VERY unlikely that any amount of money would help you buy your files back. You shouldn’t even think about this if backups for your files exist outside the infected computer. Just delete the corrupted files because you already have replacements.
