What is Ran Ransomware

Ran Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts data on a victim’s computer and demands a ransom for its decryption. It was discovered during a routine inspection of new submissions to the VirusTotal site. The primary purpose of this ransomware is to block access to data by encrypting it, and then demanding a ransom for the decryption key. Ran Ransomware modifies the titles of affected files by adding the .Ran extension to filenames. The specific encryption algorithm used by Ran Ransomware is not known. However, it is known that ransomware typically uses sophisticated encryption algorithms, either symmetric or asymmetric. The encryption is usually so complex that only the developer is capable of restoring data, as decryption requires a specific key generated during the encryption process. After the encryption process is completed, Ran Ransomware drops a ransom note named Payment.txt. This note states that the victim’s network and computers have been infected, their personal files were encrypted, and vulnerable data was stolen. To obtain the decryption tools, a ransom of 3 BTC (Bitcoin cryptocurrency) is demanded.

WARNING:We strongly DO NOT recommend using third-party tools to decrypt files.It will not be possible and it will kill possibility of recovery.In this case no one can help you.

Decrypting .Ran files requires the specific decryption key, which is typically held by the ransomware developer. It is generally not recommended to pay the ransom, as this does not guarantee that the attackers will provide a decryption tool and it encourages criminal activity. Instead, victims should isolate the infected device, identify the ransomware infection, search for ransomware decryption tools, and restore files with data recovery tools if possible. If a decryption tool is not available, victims should keep the encrypted files in the hope that a tool becomes available in the future.

How Ran Ransomware infects computers

Ran Ransomware, like other types of ransomware, predominantly infects computers through phishing and social engineering tactics. Malicious software is often disguised as or bundled with ordinary program/media files. These files can come in various formats, such as documents (PDF, Microsoft Office, Microsoft OneNote, etc.), executables (.exe, .run, etc.), archives (ZIP, RAR, etc.), JavaScript, and so on. Phishing emails are the leading cause of ransomware infections, accounting for about 90% of all successful data breaches.
