Noblis Ransomware – In Detail

Noblis is a virus that encrypts your files and extorts you to pay a ransom to supposedly recover them. The extortionists want you to pay in Bitcoin for the alleged restoration of your files.

Noblis 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 complete. It is inside a window screen and can be viewed from the following screenshot down here:

The note is written in Spanish, and it states the following:

Los archivos más importantes de este equipo han sido cifrados con un sistema de grado militar (AES-256)
Sus documentos, videos, imágenes y otros formatos (y por supuesto la FLAG) están fuera de su alcance… Y no podrá descifrarlos sin la llave apropiada… Esta se encuentra almacenada en un servidor remoto.
Las únicas formas de obtenerla, será pagando a la billetera antes que el tiempo se acabe.. También puede vulnerar el servidor remoto¿?…
O encontrar alguna falla en este sistema de cifrado¿?…
— Recuerde que este reto es únicamente con fines académicos e investigativos… No pierda tiempo… Pues una vez termine la cuenta regresiva, los archivos serán eliminados de forma permanente —
WALLET ADDRESS: nobliswallet99838399283928392323

Here is a rough translation of the ransom note in English:

The most important files of this equipment have been encrypted with a military grade system (AES-256)
Your documents, videos, images and other formats (and of course the FLAG) are beyond your reach … And you will not be able to decipher them without the proper key … This is stored on a remote server.
The only way to obtain it, will be to pay the wallet before the time runs out. Can it also violate the remote server? …
Or find some flaw in this encryption system? …
— Remember that this challenge is only for academic and investigative purposes … Do not waste time … Well once the countdown is finished, the files will be permanently deleted —
WALLET ADDRESS: nobliswallet99838399283928392323

The note of the Noblis ransomware states that your files are encrypted. You are demanded to pay 1 Bitcoin or 17.000 US dollars at the time of writing. 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 activities.

Below you can see the interface of the decrypter program that comes with it:

Unfortunately, you cannot use it unless you have a decryption key, which is received if you pay the ransom.

Noblis Ransomware – Encryption

What is known for the encryption process of the Noblis ransomware is that every file that gets encrypted will receive the .Noblis extension. The ransomware encrypts files with the AES 256-bit encryption algorithm. Interestingly enough, the ransomware also has the capability to encrypt with RSA 2048-bit but does not implement that kind of encryption. Malware researchers suspect that this encryption method will be used with future iterations in the future.

The targeted extensions of files which are sought to get encrypted are currently unknown and if a list is discovered, it will be posted here as the article gets updated. 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 Noblis 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

In case 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.
