Asasin Ransomware

Asasin ransomware removal instructions

What is Asasin?

Asasin is a new variant of a high-risk ransomware-type virus called Locky. Cyber criminals spread this ransomware using spam emails (malicious attachments). At the time of research, the malicious attachment was a .vbs file, which, once executed, starts the infection chain by downloading and running Asasin malware on the victim's computer. Following successful infiltration, Asasin encrypts stored data using RSA-2048 and AES-128 encryption algorithms. During encryption, Asasin renames encrypted files using a 36-letter and digit combination with a ".asasin" extension (previous variants of Locky used ".aesir", ".ykcol", ".diablo6", and a number of other extensions). Once the files are encrypted, Asasin creates three additional files ("asasin.bmp" [also set as the desktop background], "asasin-5eac.htm", and "asasin.htm"), placing them on the desktop.
