What is Razy Ransomware

Razy Ransomware is a malicious software designed to encrypt files on a victim’s computer using an asymmetric encryption algorithm. Once it infects a system, it appends either .razy or .razy1337 as extensions to the names of the encrypted files, making them inaccessible without the decryption key. Following the encryption process, Razy creates three specific files and places them on the desktop: css.vbs, index.html, and razy.jpg. The “razy.jpg” file serves as an initial alert to the user, indicating that their files have been encrypted and directing them to open the index.html file for further instructions. However, unlike typical ransomware that provides detailed payment instructions and demands a ransom in cryptocurrency (usually between 0.5 and 1.5 Bitcoin), Razy’s approach is somewhat different. The “index.html” file contains four links: two for payment and two leading to Razy’s social media pages on Twitter and Facebook. Notably, these links are broken, suggesting that they lead nowhere. This peculiarity has led to the assumption that Razy might still be in development or created for research purposes rather than for financial gain.

Your computer files have been encrypted. Your photos, videos, documents, etc... But, don't worry! We have not deleted them yet. You have to pay 10€ Paysafecard to get the decryption key. Try anything funny and the computer has several safety measures to delete your files. You have one chance to enter the paysafecard code! be careful!

Razy employs asymmetric cryptography, which involves two keys: a public key for encryption and a private key for decryption. The decryption of files without the private key is impossible, and these keys are typically stored on remote servers controlled by the cybercriminals. However, research indicates that the keys generated by Razy are not stored anywhere, rendering decryption unfeasible. Consequently, there are currently no tools available that can decrypt files encrypted by Razy using asymmetric cryptography. The only viable solution for affected users is to restore their files or system from a backup. The emergence of Razy Ransomware underscores the continuous evolution of ransomware threats and the importance of maintaining regular backups of important data. Given its unique characteristics and the impossibility of decryption, Razy serves as a reminder of the sophisticated tactics employed by cybercriminals and the need for vigilance in cybersecurity practices.

How Razy Ransomware infects computers

Razy Ransomware primarily infects computers through malvertising on websites and distribution on file hosting services disguised as legitimate software. It exploits vulnerabilities in web browsers and their extensions, tricking users into downloading and installing the malware. Once installed, Razy can also spread across networks by infecting already-installed, legitimate browser extensions, further compromising the security of the system.
