BitPaymer is a ransomware-type virus discovered by malware security researcher, S!Ri. Immediately after infiltration, BitPaymer encrypts most stored files and appends filenames with the ".locked" extension (i.e., "sample.jpg" is renamed to "sample.jpg.locked"). Updated variants of this ransomware use ".LOCK" extensions for encrypted files. Compromised data immediately becomes unusable. Furthermore, BitPaymer creates a text file for each encrypted file. For example (a text file named "sample.jpg.readme_txt" would be created for "sample.jpg").
