A new and active campaign for the CryptON Ransomware is currently underway where attackers are hacking into computers with Internet accessible Remote Desktop Services. Once the attackers gain access to the computer they manually execute the ransomwareÂ and encrypt your files.
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.
Since the end of September, the DXXD Ransomware has been targeting servers and encrypting their files.Â In the past, Michael GillespieÂ was able to create a decryptor based on the encrypted files that were submitted to his ID-Ransomware service, but this was short lived when the developer modified the encryption algorithm.
