_[RELOCK001@TUTA.IO] Ransomware – Encryption Process

Since the [RELOCK001@TUTA.IO] files virus is a new variant of the previously detected Matrix Ransomware, the malware uses similar encryption techniques regarding the files with few modifications. The virus may look to encrypt the following types of files on your computer:

  • Documents.
  • Pictures.
  • Music.
  • Videos.
  • Archives.
  • Images.
  • Files associated with often used programs.

When the [RELOCK001@TUTA.IO] virus detects those files, it has been programmed to immediately begin to replace blocks of data from those files with data according to what encryption algorithm is used. Quickly after that, the files become no longer usable, until they are decrypted. A decryption key is also generated, but the victim has no access to it. The virus also sets a custom file extension to the encrypted files, while in the same time saving their original file extension as a suffix, for example, if the file is Image.jpg, it would look like the following:

In addition to this, the _[RELOCK001@TUTA.IO] may also execute the following command as an administrator which make sure the encrypted files become no longer recoverable:

→ cipher /W:[Drive Letter]:\
