Zenis ransomware targeting companies
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:28:41 pm »
A new ransomware threat has been hitting companies in the last 24 hours. The author calls himself "ZENIS" and malware researchers have dubbed the ransomware "Zenis" accordingly. The ransomware encrypts files and changes their names by using both a prefix and an extension, which are custom. The extension is randomized code made of base64 characters.

You can read more about the Zenis ransomware from the following article:

The price for file recovery may differ between individual user victims and companies hit by the malware. Victims should not pay, unless they are in a critical situation as a decryptor may be found in the near future.
