A new ransomware has been discovered that encrypts your data and appends the extension .id_<victim_id>_email_zeta@dr.com.scl to the end of the encrypted files. When it is done, it will create two ransom notes on your desktop, and throughout the computer, called HELP_YOUR_FILES.HTML and HELP_YOUR_FILES.TXT.

These ransom notes will instruct you to email the malware developers in order to receive payment instructions. The emails they specify are: zeta@dr.com and zeta@oath.com.


Last, but not least, the ransomware will create autoruns that start the infection everytime you login to windows:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\Adobe Reader Update32	"%UserProfile%\AdobeFlashPlayer_6eebe15bed9a75cb.exe"
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\AdobeFlashPlayers32	"%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\AdobeFlashPlayer_bcbef350abcf2f2.exe"
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\*Adobe Reader Update32	"%UserProfile%\AdobeFlashPlayer_6eebe15bed9a75cb.exe"
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\*AdobeFlashPlayers32	"%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\AdobeFlashPlayer_bcbef350abcf2f2.exe"
