[email protected] Ransomware – Distribution

To spread, [email protected] crypto-virus may undertake a massive spam campaign with e-mails that may resemble legitimate messages and services, like PayPal, your bank, and others. The e-mails may contain convincing topics, like claiming your account has been suspended, etc.

The body of the e-mail may contain malicious URLs that may cause redirects to websites that can perform the infection via a JavaScript that is malicious or a drive-by download of the malware itself.

Another form of distributing the payload of [email protected] ransomware is to upload an exploit kit file directly as an e-mail attachment. The file may pretend to be a Microsoft Office (Word, Excel) document or a .pdf file that has important information in it, driving users to download it. From, there the infection may begin and the exploit kit may connect to the servers of cyber-crooks and download the obfuscated payload.

[email protected] Ransomware – More Information About It

Upon infection, the payload of [email protected] has been reported to be consisting of a malicious executable file and two ransom note files. Instead of modifying registry entries to run the executables on startup, the malware directly drops them onto the %Startup% folder of Windows, to make them run when you boot your PC.

These are the payload files that may be associated with the [email protected] variant:

→C:\Users\{User’s profile}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Decryption instructions.jpg
C:\Users\{User’s profile}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Decryption instructions.txt
C:\Users\{User’s profile}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\{malicious payload file}.exe
C:\Windows\System32\{malicious payload file}.exe

When [email protected] ransomware has ran, the virus begins to encrypt the files of the compromised computer. It may look for several different types of widely used files, like videos, photos, documents, etc. The file extensions it may scan for to encrypt may vary, but are most often widely used ones, for example:


After encryption, the [email protected] Ransomware may add a file extension to the encrypted files. An encrypted file by this virus may look like the following:


After file encryption, the [email protected] ransomware starts displaying it’s ransom notes, asking users to contact the e-mail address in question. Malware researchers strongly advise against paying any ransom money and if you are to contact them to ask them to decrypt one file as a guarantee. Such file may then later be used for file decryption in combination with the encrypted file if a decryptor is released to the public. In the meantime, we advise removing [email protected] and trying other methods to get your files back.
