Jigsaw Ransomware

What is Jigsaw ransomware?

Jigsaw is ransomware that uses the AES algorithm to encrypt various files stored on computers. Targeted files include .jpg, .docx, .mp3, .mp4, and many others.

Depending on the ransomware version, one of the following file extensions is added: ".NDGHacks", ".epic", ".HYDRA", ".paycoin", ".pennywise", ".data", .locked_by_mR_Anonymous(TZ_HACKERS), .spaß, .F*ckedByGhost, .#__EnCrYpTED_BY_dzikusssT3AM_ransomware!__#, .lockedgood, .pleaseCallQQ, .hacked.by.Snaiparul, .dat, .tedcrypt, .invaded, .black007, .F*ckED, .##___POLICJA!!!___TEN_PLIK_ZOSTA, .coder007@protonmail.com, .choda, .booknish, .hac, .LolSec, .email-[powerhacker03@hotmail.com].koreaGame, .jes, .Bitconnect, .contact-me-here-for-the-key-admin@adsoleware.com, .paymrss, .justice, .LOCKED_BY_pablukl0cker, .CryptWalker, .F*CKMEDADDY, .##ENCRYPTED_BY_pablukl0cker##, .####CONTACT_US_pablukl0cker638yzhgr@2tor.com####, .game, .#, .pablukCRYPT, .pabluk300CrYpT!, .pabluklocker, .afc, .korea, .kill, .rat, .Crypto, .paymts, .sux, .ghost, .R3K7M9, .tax, .lost, .beep, .ice, .die, .PAY, .Contact_TarineOZA@Gmail.com, .getrekt, .lckd, .crypte, .I'WANT MONEY, .nemo-hacks.at.sigaint.org, .jey, .gefickt, .uk-dealer@sigaint.org, .paytounlock, .hush, .locked, .payrmts, .afd, .paybtcs, .fun, .kkk, .gws, or .btc.

After encryption, this ransomware displays a window with a message listing the encrypted files and stating that victims can only restore them by paying a ransom. In addition, every sixty minutes, .Fun deletes a certain number of files, thus, putting victims under pressure to pay, since delays result in permanent deletion of more files.

   
Paradise Ransomware

What kind of malware is Paradise?

Paradise is a ransomware-type virus promoted as RAAS (Ransomware As A Service). Developers allow affiliates to perform minor changes (for example, change the contact email address and size of ransom) and, in doing so, avoid the task of malware distribution - they use affiliates to proliferate the software.

Developers generate revenue by taking a percentage of ransom payments. Following infiltration, Paradise encrypts stored data using RSA-1024 cryptography and appends names of encrypted files with the "id-[affiliate_id].[affiliate_email].paradise" extension. For example, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to a filename such as "sample.jpgid-3VwVCmhU.[info@decrypt.ws].paradise".

Following successful encryption, Paradise creates three text files ("PARADISE_README_paradise@all-ransomware.info.txt", "Files.txt", "Failed.txt", and "#DECRYPT MY FILES#.txt") placing them on the desktop.

Updated variants of this ransomware use: .[blackblackra@tuta.io].b1, .sambo, __{babyfromparadise666@gmail.com}.p3rf0rm4, .[yourencrypter@protonmail.ch].b29, _V.0.0.0.1{paradise@all-ransomware.info}.prt, id-[affiliate_id].[affiliate_email].sell, id-[affiliate_id].[affiliate_email].ransom, id-[affiliate_id].[affiliate_email].logger , {help@badfail.info}.paradise, .CORP, and .VACv2 extensions for encrypted files.
