What is KyMERA?

Discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie, KyMERA is a ransomware-type virus that stealthily infiltrates the system and locks most stored files.

Unlike other ransomware viruses, KyMERA does not encrypt data. This malware compresses each file to a password-protected zip archive. It also appends filenames with the "locked.zip" extension (for instance, "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg locked.zip"). KyMERA then opens a pop-up window that contains a ransom-demand message.
