MMM Ransomware

MMM ransomware removal instructions

What is MMM?

MMM is a ransomware-type virus discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie. Following successful infiltration, MMM encrypts stored data using RSA, AES, and HMAC cryptographies. During encryption, the virus appends filenames with the ".0x009d8a" extension (a previous variant used ".0x004867") and creates a .info file for each encrypted file. For example, "sample.jpg" would be renamed to "sample.jpg.0x009d8a", and an additional "sample.jpg.info" file would be created. Once the files are encrypted, MMM creates an HTML file ("RESTORE_0x009d8a_FILES.html"), placing it in every existing folder.
