GandCrab2 Ransomware is a virus, that uses AES (CBC-mode) algorithm to encrypt user files. During the process ransomware adds .CRAB extension to encrypted files. Following successful encryption, GandCrab2 creates CRAB-DECRYPT.txt file. Unfortunately, due to using TOR payment pages, NameCoin servers and cryptocurrency, there is no way to track the hackers, unless they make a mistake. Decryption key of previous version of GandCrab became public due to data leakage from their servers. GandCrab2 Ransomware asks 0.5 - 0.8 Dash (cryptocurrency) , which is less then before, however it still can estimate from several hundreds to more than thousand dollars.
Arrow Ransomware is new file encryption virus from Dharma/Crysis Ransomware family. Malware uses AES encryption. Unlike previous versions, it appends .arrow extension to all encrypted files. Arrow Ransomware encodes almost all types of files that can be important to users, including documents, images, videos, databases, archives. Arrow Ransomware demands from $1000 to $2000 in BitCoins for the decryption key, that they actually rarely send out. Currently, decryption is not possible, however, you can decrypt your files from backups or trying file recovery software. There is also a slight possibility, that you will decrypt your files using tips and tricks described in this article.
GandCrab Ransomware is file encrypting virus, that uses AES-256 (CBC-mode) encryption algorithm to encode user files. It affects documents, media files, databases - the most important data for users. During encryption process ransomware appends .GDCB extension to encrypted files. After it finishes GDCB-DECRYPT.txt is created. GandCrab Ransomware targets 64-bit systems in Western Europe and South Korea. Its developers demand 1.5 - 2 Dash (cryptocurrency) which estimates in more than $1100. GandCrab checks the system for the presence of .exe files of antiviruses from the popular vendors, and won't run on the computers with such security software or will attempt to disable it.
Cloudnet (Cloudnet.exe) is malicious application from EpicNet Inc. Security specialists categorize this program as adware or potentially unwanted application (PUA). It implements scripts in browser pages to display pop-ups, banners and other types of advertising in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Ykcol Ransomware is newest version of previously described Locky ransomware. New variant uses RSA-2048 and AES-128 cryptographic algorithms and appends .ykcol to he end of all encrypted files. Virus also modifies filenames using the following template: [8_random_hexadecimal_characters]-[4_random_hexadecimal_characters]-[4_random_hexadecimal_characters]-[4_hexadecimal_chars]-[12_random_hexadecimal_characters].ykcol. In order to decrypt your files malware demands 0.25 BTC, which is on the date of writing this article is equivalent to $950. Ykcol Ransomware creates two files named ykcol.htm and ykcol.bmp, both contain instructions to pay the ransom and ID.
Hakunamatata Ransomware is new version of NMoreira Ransomware (NMoreira 2.0). Virus encrypts user files with RSA-2048 and AES-256 encryption algorithms and adds .hakunamatata suffix to affected files. After finishing infection process Hakunamatata creates file "Recovers files yako.html" on the desktop. Hackers offer users to contact them using Bitmessage system and pay the ransom. Amount of ransom is currently unknown, but likely it is somewhere between $300 and $1500. Decryption key is generated during encryption, and currently unknown. Therefore, there is no way to decrypt or restore files unless users has backup.
