Lots of new in development and smaller ransomware variants released this week. The biggest ransomware news this week is the release of a decryptor for version 2 of the DXXD Ransomware and the release of LockyDump.
This week really picked up when it comes to ransomware news. Lots of new variants, new decryptors, and new ransomware. Of particular interest this week is Locky switching to using the ODIN extension and for security companies releasing a lot of decryptors this week.
Today a new Locky Ransomware variant was discovered by @dvk01uk that now uses the .ODIN extension for encrypted files. It is important to note that if you are infected with this ransomware, you are not infected with the Odin Ransomware. You are instead infected by Locky, which is using the .ODIN extension. There is a difference.
