Jamper Ransomware does not bypass UAC, so users themselves grant an executable the permission to run. The virus uses the file marker V…………….., added to the beginning of the file code. After execution, removes itself and clears the system and application event logs, RDP log, PowerShell log, trusted certificates log. Jamper Ransomware removes shadow copies of files (VSS), disables recovery features of Windows, which makes it difficult to recover encrypted files. Ransomware modifies files of MS Office documents, OpenOffice, PDF, text files, databases, photos, music, video, image files, archives, etc. It does not encrypt the following types of files:

.bat, .cmd, .com, .cpl, .dll, .lnk, .msc, .msp, .pif, .scr, .sys, .vega
