Hi, I was purchasing some content from a vendor, he gave me a defunct link with 404 error which downloaded the following file named rukinogi64.exe.bin :

 

https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/70c65bd0e084398a87baa298c1fafa52afff402096cb350d563d309565c07e83/analysis/1459987364/

 

I noticed it has an overwhelming unfavorable rating by analysts at virustotal, and 1 comment even claimed that it is a variant of Locky ransomware.

 

I can't find this file on my computer using unhide or SearchEverything, and I'm worried that something bad might result from this.

 

Would appreciate assistance on this, thanks!

Hi,

 

This file while named rukinogi64.exe.bin is an HTML file.

 

With your virustotal link you will want go to additional information there you will spot: 

 

File type HTML
Magic literal
HTML document text
TrID HyperText Markup Language (100.0%)
 
The Comments do say Ransomware/locky - while this link could of been that infection. The host is down and uploading the 404 page as your file rukinogi64.exe.bin
