Halloware Ransomware

Halloware ransomware removal instructions

What is Halloware?

Discovered by malware security researcher, Catalin Cimpan, Halloware is a ransomware-type virus designed to stealthily infiltrate the system and encrypt data using the AES-256 encryption algorithm. During encryption, Halloware prepends filenames with "(Lucifer)" [e.g., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "(Lucifer)sample.jpg"]. Halloware then changes the desktop wallpaper and opens a pop-up window, both containing similar ransom-demand messages. Note that Halloware's developer (named 'Luc1F3R') attempts to generate revenue by selling the malware itself, rather than by infecting users' computers and receiving subsequent ransom payments.

TEST Ransomware

TEST ransomware removal instructions

What is TEST?

First discovered by MalwareHunterTeam, TEST is a new variant of high-risk ransomware called CryptoMix. Immediately after infiltration, TEST encrypts most stored data and renames it using a hexadecimal numeral system (32 characters) and adds the ".TEST" extension to each affected file. For example, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to something like "123E7C332654AF453A089F8F26B69385.TEST". From this point, files become unusable and indistinguishable. Following successful encryption, TEST generates a text file ("_HELP_INSTRUCTION.TXT") and places it in every folder containing encrypted files.
