GlobeImposter 2.0 Ransomware is the second generation of file-encrypting ransomware virus GlobeImposter. The name “GlobeImposter” was originnaly given to it by crypto-ransomware identification service called “ID-Ransomware”, because of the assignment by the extortioners of the “proprietary” ransom note from the Globe Ransomware family. The purpose was to frighten the victims, to confuse the researchers, to discredit the decryption programs released for the Globe-family. Thus, all Globe-imitators, which are not decrypted by the decryption utilities released for Globe 1-2-3, received the conditional name GlobeImposter, and after that – GlobeImposter 2.0. Virus can be detected by various antivirus programs as Trojan.Encoder.7325, Trojan.Encoder.10737, Trojan.Encoder.11539, Ransom_FAKEPURGE.A or Ransom.GlobeImposter.
