Godzilla Loader

What is Godzilla Loader?

Godzilla Loader is a tool that can be used in ransomware distribution. The presence of such tools on the market shows that we have to be really considerate about our system and network safety. Also, Trojan infections are hard to discern when they don’t have a graphic user’s interface, which leaves us with regular system scans as the ultimate necessity. If you do not detect and remove Godzilla Loader at once, your network might get infected with a dangerous ransomware program that could virtually destroy your file library. To prevent that, you have to take good care of your cybersecurity.

Where does Godzilla Loader come from?

Some users might find it unbelievable, but this tool can be purchased easily from its official website. Its developers are selling it for $950 per piece, and it says that “Godzilla Loader is a modern dropper that allows you to download an unlimited number of files bypassing most types of AV protection.” So, if someone needs to find a method to spread their malicious codes and files, this tool could be the answer. In other words, rather than being a genuine infection, Godzilla Loader is used as a malware downloader, and you can never know other programs will be downloaded on your system when this tool slithers inside.

Okay, so we know that the developers can buy Godzilla Loader, but how does it enter target systems? Judging from our research, this tool usually spreads through phishing emails. It also means that users may download Godzilla Loader from their inbox willingly, thinking that the Trojan file is an official document. It also raises security concerns and makes us question the general understanding of cybersecurity. The truth is that it is rather easy to avoid malware that comes with spam, but users often fail to realize they deal with fake content. It is especially important if you work with lots of documents every single day, and answering emails is part of your daily duties. Most of these actions may seem generic, but it is always a good idea to stop and check.

What’s more, if you are not sure about the legitimacy of the files you have received, you should scan them with a security tool. It should be your newest habit because this way you would definitely avoid not just Godzilla Loader, but a whole lot of other potential infections.

What does Godzilla Loader do?

Based on the information provided at the original website, Godzilla Loader can work “without introducing code into other people’s processes.” It means that without additional codes, it might be hard for certain antivirus programs to detect this Trojan.

Working in general obscurity, Godzilla Loader connects to a remote server to receive further commands, and then downloads the actual payload to the affected system. After that, the program deletes itself, and then the infected user is left to deal with the main payload, that could be ransomware or something else equally dangerous and frustrating.

On top of that, some researchers say that Godzilla Loader is also able to delete the Shadow Volume copies on the affected system (provided they have been enabled). It means that it might be hard to restore your data once Godzilla Loader downloads the main payload, and it is run on your system. This raises the importance of file backup.

You should definitely save copies of your files on an external hard drive, or use a cloud drive service to back up your data because that is the best remedy and protection against a ransomware infection. You have to keep it in mind that sometimes a public decryption tool might not be available.

How do I remove Godzilla Loader?

Since Godzilla Loader has a tendency to delete its main file once the main payload is downloaded, there might not be much to terminate at the end of the day. However, you can scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner to see exactly which files you need to remove. If you find the manual removal too challenging, terminate Godzilla Loader and other infections with an automated antispyware tool. Finally, be sure to invest in your cybersecurity because you have to be ready to fight similar infections in the future.
