Lots of small variants released this week, but surprisingly most are actually active and being distributed. The big stories are new distribution methods for GandCrab, decryptors for Cryakl variants and MoneroPay, and a new ransomware called Black Ruby.
A new ransomware was discovered this week by MalwareHunterTeamÂ called Black Ruby. This ransomwareÂ will encrypt the files on a computer, scramble the file name, and then append the BlackRuby extension. To make matters worse, Black Ruby will also install a MoneroÂ miner on the computer that utilizes as much of the CPU as it scan.
