MMM Ransomware

MMM ransomware removal instructions

What is MMM?

MMM is a ransomware-type virus discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie. Following successful infiltration, MMM encrypts stored data using RSA, AES, and HMAC cryptographies. During encryption, the virus appends filenames with the ".0x009d8a" extension (a previous variant used ".0x004867") and creates a .info file for each encrypted file. For example, "sample.jpg" would be renamed to "sample.jpg.0x009d8a", and an additional "sample.jpg.info" file would be created. Once the files are encrypted, MMM creates an HTML file ("RESTORE_0x009d8a_FILES.html"), placing it in every existing folder. Updated variants of this ransomware add .MMM extension to encrypted files and stores it's ransom demanding message in GET_YOUR_FILES_BACK.html file.

8chan Ransomware

8chan ransomware removal instructions

What is 8chan?

8chan is a ransomware-type virus recently discovered by malware security researcher, Michael Gillespie. Immediately after encryption, 8chan encrypts most stored files. It also renames files using a specific pattern, however, since there are a number of 8chan's variants, the filename pattern also varies (e.g., "[random].supdec@8chan.co", "[random].recover@8chan.co", and similar). For instance, "sample.jpg" might be renamed to a filename such as "a87E5J=eeLi89Pf332Kna3rHlY.decrypts@8chan.co". Encrypted files become unusable and indistinguishable. Once encryption is complete, 8chan creates a text file and places a copy in every existing folder. The name of the text file also depends on 8chan's variants (e.g., "HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES-supdec@8chan.co.TXT", "HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES-recover@8chan.co.TXT", and similar).
