Unfortunately, more and more ransomware infections emerge, and they even use the same distribution techniques, which indicates that users are still careless.

Downloading freeware can be dangerous as well. Amongst all vulnerabilities, of course, cyber criminals love spam emails the most, and many threats are found to be introduced to victims as harmless attachment files. When the malicious MTXLOCK Ransomware – which shares similarities with Matrix9643@yahoo.com Ransomware – finally invades the system, it immediately encrypts files and attaches the .MTXLOCK File Extension to their names. The data is encrypted using RSA-2048 and AES-128 ciphers, and decrypting files manually is not possible. Furthermore, files are not automatically decrypted when the ransomware is removed.

For example, it reveals that all data with the .MTXLOCK File Extension is encrypted using RSA-2048 and AES-128 ciphers. The purpose of the message, of course, is to make the victim contact cyber criminals. Two different methods are offered: By email (RestoreFile@qq.com, RestoreFile@yahoo.com, and RestoreFile2018@gmail.com must all be emailed) or by BitMessenger (address is BM-2cVeq4HtLaXPGTamXgv5rvwDjypapmy8irR).Cyber criminals need to establish this communication just so that they could provide you ransom payment-related information.
