Rabbit Ransomware

What is Rabbit Ransomware?

Rabbit Ransomware was created to terrorize Windows users. If it is executed on the operating system successfully – which means that the victim does not notice and remove the launcher right away – it can imitate a real lockdown. Considering that file-encrypting infections are some of the most common these days, this might automatically send some victims into panic. Even though this particular threat does not actually claim to have encrypted files, it states that files would be eliminated if a ransom was not paid within 24 hours. The ransom that the screen-locker presents is relatively small (when compared to some other recent threats), and that might lead to higher success rates. On the other hand, even if victims are tricked into paying up, the consequences would not be too horrific. All in all, paying schemers is not something anyone should do, and, luckily, no one has to. There is a special code that should unlock the screen-locker, and, after that, you should be able to remove Rabbit Ransomware.test

How does Rabbit Ransomware work?

If you did not know this already, screen-lockers are not very common. A few other threats similar to Rabbit Ransomware include Giyotin Ransomware, Acroware Cryptolocker Ransomware, Golden Ransomware, and Autismlocker Ransomware. In most cases – although not in all – the attackers behind this kind of malware are using deception to lure out money from the victims’ wallets. Rabbit Ransomware operates in the same way too. First, it must be dropped onto the computer, and spam emails, malicious downloaders, and system vulnerabilities could be used for that. Then, the threat is executed, and the screen is locked. The infection’s launcher is added to the Run registry (in Windows Registry it can be found at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run), and unless the value is deleted, the threat locks the screen even when the system is restarted. The pseudo locker also adds another value (in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System) to ensure that the Task Manager is disabled. This is how the attackers can stop the victims from killing the screen-locker’s process and then, eventually, removing the infection itself.

The ransom that Rabbit Ransomware requests is not too big (0.005 BTC or 0.15 ETH, or ~24-26 USD), and so it is possible that some victims would just pay it to get back into their computers. Unfortunately, that would be the wrong move, even if money is not an issue for you. If you paid the ransom, you would then have to send an email to rabbit.cnannel@gmail.com to confirm the transaction. If you did that, the attackers would learn your email address, and that could allow them to send you phishing and scam emails in the future. They might even give or sell your address to other malicious parties. On top of that, who knows if you would be given the unlock code in the end? There are no guarantees with that. At the time of research, there was a code that worked, and, hopefully, it will work for you too. It is revealed in the first step of the removal guide below. If the code does not work, leave a comment below.

How to delete Rabbit Ransomware

Hopefully, you regain your access to the operating system as soon as you enter the special code you can find in the guide below. After that, you need to remove Rabbit Ransomware quickly. Most likely this is the part that interests you the most. If you are inexperienced, the process might seem overwhelming, but if you know a few things about the Windows Registry and malicious components, you should have no trouble eliminating the threat. You have to remove registry entries created by the infection, and they might help you find the launcher itself. The launcher is the most important file for you to eliminate. What if you cannot delete Rabbit Ransomware manually? That is not a big deal at all. In fact, even if you are experienced, we still recommend using anti-malware software. It is the kind of software that is set up to automatically eliminate malware and, at the same time, provide full protection against malware. As long as this software is installed and is up-to-date, you should not face malware.
