Ranion 1.07 Ransomware

What is Ranion 1.07 Ransomware?

Ranion 1.07 Ransomware is claimed to be an educational project but it appears to be a complete lie. Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this is indeed a RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) sold on the darknet. This also means unfortunately that more and more variants may surface with smaller or bigger differences according to the particular buyers' choices and configurations. If this ransomware, any of its variants, managed to infiltrate your system, you can be sure that your most important files will be encrypted. Causing irrevocable damage is not the main goal here; extorting money from the victims for the decryption key is why this ransomware really exists. Although you may believe that paying the ransom fee will free your files, we beg to differ. As a matter of fact, it is always very risky to pay due to the fact that cyber criminals would rather disappear than send you the decryption key. We recommend that you remove Ranion 1.07 Ransomware immediately after you realize that you have been hit.testtesttest

Where does Ranion 1.07 Ransomware come from?

Since there can be dozens of variants already spreading on the web coming from different cyber crooks, it is hard to tell which distribution method is used. We can only assume that these criminals apply the usual techniques. The most likely way to get infected with this dangerous ransomware is via spamming campaigns. It is possible that you have received a spam mail lately and you thought that it may be important for you to open it. Obviously, this spam does not scream "I AM A SPAM AND I WILL DESTROY YOUR FILES!" so it is not that easy to spot it as you might think. In fact, this spam can be very convincing. Finding it in your spam folder may even make you temporarily think "thank god, I found it." The reason why you would react like this is that this spam may claim to regard an urgent matter like an unpaid invoice, a credit card or bank account issue, a problem with the local authorities, and so on. You would definitely want to know what this mail is about. This is when you click and then, click again to view the attached file.

To your misfortune, this is when you activate this vicious attack. This also means that you cannot stop the encryption of your files in time. By the time you realize what just happened, even if you delete Ranion 1.07 Ransomware, your files will have been rendered inaccessible and will stay that way, too, unless you obtain the unique decryption key.

Another option is that this ransomware is spread via Exploit Kits. In this case, you need to get redirected to a certain malicious page that promotes this infection. The moment your outdated browser loads this page, the drop is triggered. The only way for you to avoid such a cyber attack is to keep all your browsers and drivers up-to-date. If you use remote desktop applications, we also recommend that you configure them properly and safely. If you were to use weak passwords, for instance, cyber crooks could easily hack into your system and initiate this attack. As you can see, there are a couple of ways for you to prevent such a nightmare from taking place. But right now your only choice to restore your system is to remove Ranion 1.07 Ransomware.

How does Ranion 1.07 Ransomware work?

This malicious program uses the AES-256 algorithm to encrypt your files with these extensions: .accdb, .asp, .aspx, .bmp, .cc, .cpp, .cs, .csv, .cxx, .db, .doc, .docx, .htm, .html, .java, .jpeg, .jpg, .jsp, .mdb, .msg, .oab, .ods, .odt, .ost, .pab, .php, .png, .ppt, .pptx, .psd, .pst, .rtf, .sln, .sql, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, .xml, and .zip. However, additional file extensions and types can be requested by buyers of this RaaS. The encrypted files get a ".ransom" extension. This ransomware, depending on the variant, may or may not replace the desktop background image or drop a ransom note based on the settings configured by the individual cyber criminals.

Since the ransom notes can be different for each variant, we cannot really tell you the amount your attackers may demand. We do know though that the usual ransom fee can be anything starting from $10 up to $5,000 or more in Bitcoins (which is the generally used currency in these cases). Whatever the sum, we do not advise you to pay it or to contact your attackers, either. There is never any guarantee that these criminals will send you the key. We suggest that you do not hesitate to remove Ranion 1.07 Ransomware from your PC right away.
