Title: CryptoHitman Ransomware with a 'Hitman' theme
Post by: Execute on May 12, 2016, 05:05:04 pm
Jigsaw ransomware has been rebranded and now has a new name, extension and screen message.

The new variant is called CryptoHitman and its name is based off the Hitman characters from the video game series of the same name. It is not excluded to be spread through crack executables for famous games like MM Locker (http://sensorstechforum.com/mm-locker-ransomware-spreads-via-far-cry-primal-cracks-and-sets-locked-extension/) did. It would make sense as SquareEnix also has games which are protected with Denuvo protection and they are the publishers of the Hitman game series.

You can read more about CryptoHitman in the blog article about how to Remove CryptoHitman Ransomware (http://sensorstechforum.com/remove-cryptohitman-ransomware-and-restore-porno-encrypted-files-successfully/).
