A new ransomware was spotted from victim submissions of encrypted files, calling itself LockLock. So far, the victims have had IPs from China.


Thanks to @Seifreed for help acquiring a sample.


This ransomware encrypts files with AES-256, and appends the extension ".locklock". The ransom note "READ_ME.TXT" is left, asking the victim to contact the criminals at the email address locklockrs@aol.com, or the Skype address "locklockrs". It is a variant of the ever-popular previous open-source EDA2 Ransomware.


The following image is set as the background of the system.





There is also a YouTube channel from the developer with a video showing a possible alternate development version.




If anyone has been hit by this ransomware, please contact me via PM for help with decryption.
