SerbRansom 2017 Virus – Infection

SerbRansom 2017 ransomware could spread its infection via different ways. The payload file that initiates the malicious script for the ransomware in question has been spotted on the Internet. Your computer system will become infected if such a payload file is executed.

Freeware distributed on the Web can be presented as useful but could also hide the malicious script for the cryptovirus in question. Refrain from opening files right after you have downloaded them, especially if they come from suspicious sources like links and emails. Instead, you should scan them with a security tool, beforehand. Also you should do a check on the size and signatures of these files, for anything unusual. Read the tips for ransomware prevention in the forum to see how you can avoid infection.

SerbRansom 2017 Virus – Information

SerbRansom 2017 ransomware is also a cryptovirus. The extension .velikasrbija is to be appended to all files that become locked after the encryption process is finished. The interesting thing about the ransomware is that it originates from Serbia and its creator is an ultranationalist. During the file-encryption process and when the ransom note appears, music will be played. The music is called “Srpska Se Truba S Kosova Cuje” which is about the “Kosovo is Serbia” movement.

SerbRansom 2017 ransomware could make entries in the Windows Registry to achieve persistence or also launch and repress processes in Windows. Some of these entries are designed in a way that will start the virus automatically with every launch of the Windows Operating System.

The ransom note will be displayed when the encryption process is complete. That ransom note contains instructions for decrypting your files along with the demands for payment by the cybercriminals that distribute the malware.

Here is what the ransom note looks like:

That ransom note reads the following:

How to recover?
Your personal info:
Username: %USERNAME%
PC-name: %PCNAME%
Local IP: %IP%
To decrypt all your data you need to pay 500$ with BitCoin here > WALLET_ID_BTC
Send an email to us with payment (screenshot) EMAIL
Every random file will be removed permanently after 05:00 minutes!
Antivirus will not help you to decrypt your data :(

As you can see, the ransom note is very distinctive with the small map of Serbia being depicted inside it. SerbRansom 2017 ransomware demands the amount of 500 US dollars as payment in Bitcoin. However, you should NOT under any circumstances pay the cybercriminals, or contact them. Your files may not get recovered, and nobody could give you any guarantee for that. Moreover, giving money to these criminals will most likely motivate them to create more ransomware or do other criminal acts.

The statement at the end of the ransom note that a random file will get deleted every five minutes is a lie. The ransomware is created with a builder that looks like the following:

At the moment there is no particular list with extensions that the SerbRansom 2017 ransomware seeks to encrypt. If that changes, this article will be duly updated.

Every one of the files that get encrypted will receive the same extension appended at the end of their names, and that is the .velikasrbija extension. The encryption algorithm which is utilized by the ransomware is not defined yet, but malware researchers believe that it’s not something sophisticated.

The SerbRansom 2017 cryptovirus is very likely to delete the Shadow Copies from the Windows operating system by using the following command:

→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet
