RemindMe Ransomware
« on: April 26, 2016, 04:46:35 pm »
A ransomware, called RemindMe has been reported to have a devastating impact on user files. The malware encrypts them using a strong cypher and appending the .remind file extension after encrypting the data. The ransomware then drops a ransom message with instructions on how to pay the cyber crooks for the decryption of .remind files.

More to it than that, RemindMe uses a strong combination of two cyphers. To encrypt the user files, it is believed that it uses the AES encryption algorithm which adds a custom decryption key to unlock the files. This key is then believed to be encrypted via an RSA cypher.

Here is more information about RemindMe along with removal and file restoration instructions:
