The Trump Locker Ransomware

The Trump Locker ransomware removal instructions

First discovered by security researcher, Lawrence Abrams, The Trump Locker is a ransomware-type virus identical to VenusLocker. Once infiltrated, this virus encrypts files using RSA-2048 cryptography. Note that The Trump Locker encrypts files in two ways: 1) full file encryption; 2) encryption of the first 1024 bytes. This is unusual for ransomware-type viruses. During encryption, The Trump Locker renames files with a number of random characters. It also appends the ".TheTrumpLockerf" extension if the file is fully encrypted and the ".TheTrumpLockerp" extension if only 1024 bytes are encrypted. For example, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to "Gda22=L9g11~.TheTrumpLockerf". Furthermore, The Trump Locker changes the desktop wallpaper and creates two files ("RansomNote.exe" and "What happen to files.txt"), placing them in each folder containing encrypted files.
