Triada is the name of a Trojan targeting Android users. Cybercriminals distribute this Trojan via a modified version of WhatsApp called FMWhatsapp (and possibly other apps).

Wizard Ransomware

What is Wizard ransomware?

Our research team discovered the Wizard malicious program during a routine inspection of new submissions to VirusTotal. It is classified as ransomware - a type of malware that encrypts data and makes ransom demands for the decryption tools.

After we executed a sample of Wizard ransomware on our testing system, it encrypted files and altered their titles. The original filenames were appended with a ".wizard" extension, e.g., a file named "1.jpg" appeared as "1.jpg.wizard", "2.png" as "2.png.wizard", etc.

Once the encryption process was completed, a ransom-demanding message - "decrypt_instructions.txt" - was created on the desktop.

   
TeamDarkAnon Ransomware

What kind of malware is TeamDarkAnon?

TeamDarkAnon is ransomware designed to encrypt files, change the desktop wallpaper, drop a ransom note (the "read_it.txt") file, and append the ".anon" extension to filenames. Files encrypted by ransomware cannot be opened until they are decrypted. We discovered TeamDarkAnon while examining malware samples submitted to VirusTotal.

An example of how TeamDarkAnon modifies filenames: it renames "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.anon", "2.png" to "2.png.anon", "3.exe" to "3.exe.anon", and so forth.

Unique is ransomware that makes files inaccessible by encrypting them, modifies their filenames, and generates two ransom notes ("info.txt" and "info.hta" files). Unique is part of the Phobos ransomware family. We discovered it on VirusTotal (while checking this page for recently submitted malware samples).

Unique renames files by appending the victim's ID, uniqueproject@xsmail.com email address, and ".unique" extension. For example, it renames "1.jpg" to "1.jpg.id[9ECFA84E-3379].[uniqueproject@xsmail.com].unique", "2.png" to "2.png.id[9ECFA84E-3379].[uniqueproject@xsmail.com].unique", and so forth.
