Dangerous Ransomware – Insight
Dangerous is a cryptovirus that encrypts your files and extorts you to pay a ransom to supposedly recover them. The virus calls itself Damage ransomware but that has been seen only in its code and not in the ransom note or elsewhere. The virus is a new variant of the Losers Ransomware. The extortionists want you to pay in Bitcoin for the alleged restoration of your files.
Dangerous ransomware might make entries in the Windows Registry to achieve persistence, and could launch or repress processes in a Windows environment. Such entries are typically designed in a way to launch the virus automatically with each start of the Windows Operating System.
That ransom note message is displayed after the encryption of your files is finished. It is inside a file named HOWTODECRYPTFILES.html and can be viewed from the following screenshot down here:
That ransom note message reads the following:

The note of the Dangerous ransomware states that your files are encrypted. You are demanded to pay 500 US dollars in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. However, you should NOT under any circumstances pay any ransom. Your files may not get recovered, and nobody could give you a guarantee for that. Moreover, giving money to cybercriminals will most likely motivate them to create more ransomware viruses or commit different criminal acts.
The payment page along with the chat hosted on the TOR network can both be seen from the image below:
Logging in with your personal identification ID on the box that pops up after loading the site, will reveal the chat window shown at the bottom of the above picture. The criminals do not make discounts and still want 500 US dollars to be paid as seen below:
Thus, there is no reason for you to even contact them, since they probably won’t decrease the price.
Dangerous Ransomware – Encryption
What is known for the encryption process of the Dangerous ransomware is that the cryptovirus places the .Wtf extension to all locked files, as a secondary extension. An example would be Job.pdf.wtf. What is more, the encryption algorithm used by the virus is AES, although it is not confirmed by an official source.
The targeted extensions of files which are sought to get encrypted are currently unknown, unless it encrypts the same files as its previous variant, which encrypted .zip and .pdf files. In case a list of files which are locked is discovered, it will be posted here as an article update. The files used most by users and which are probably encrypted are from the following categories:
- Audio files
- Video files
- Document files
- Image files
- Backup files
- Banking credentials, etc
The Dangerous cryptovirus could be set to erase all the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the help of the following command:
→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet
If the above-stated command is executed that will make the encryption process more efficient. That is due to the fact that the command eliminates one of the prominent ways to restore your data. If your computer device was infected with this ransomware and your files are locked, read on through to find out how you could potentially restore your files back to normal.
