What is LostTrust Ransomware

LostTrust Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to encrypt data on a victim’s computer, making it inaccessible until a ransom is paid. The primary goal of this ransomware is to extort money from victims by encrypting their files and demanding payment for decryption. LostTrust Ransomware appends the .losttrustencoded extension to the encrypted files. The specific encryption algorithm used by LostTrust Ransomware is not yet investigated. However, ransomware often uses complex encryption algorithms, such as AES and RSA, to encrypt files. LostTrust Ransomware creates a ransom note named !LostTrustEncoded.txt. The note informs victims that the attackers have acquired a significant amount of crucial data from their network and promises to provide a detailed list of the compromised files upon request.

It offers to decrypt a few files for free, provided they are no larger than 5 megabytes each. The note assures that payment will lead to the successful decryption of all data and the disclosure of the vulnerabilities used to breach the network. As of now, there are no free decryption tools available for LostTrust Ransomware. Decrypting .losttrustencoded files without the attackers’ assistance is usually impossible due to the complex encryption algorithms used by ransomware. It is generally advised against paying the ransom, as there is no guarantee that the attackers will provide the decryption keys or tools, and paying supports their illegal activities. In case of infection, removing the ransomware from the system is crucial, but it will not restore the encrypted files. The only solution for recovering encrypted files is to restore them from a backup created before the infection and stored in a separate location.
