Suppteam01@india.com Virus – Spread

Suppteam01@india.com ransomware can infect computers using various ways to spread. Spam emails could be spreading the payload file. Such spam mails will try to make you believe that they are of huge importance. Additionally, the body of the email will be presented in a way to urge you to open an attachment. According to these electronic letters, the attached file is either a continuation of the email message or a document related to it. Opening the file, however, releases the malicious code and infects your computer machine.

The Suppteam01@india.com ransomware could be spreading the payload file on sharing networks or social media sites. Refrain from opening files coming from suspicious links or emails. Scan all files with a security program first and check their signatures and size before you launch them. You should see more tips to prevent ransomware attacks in the topic inside the forum.

Suppteam01@india.com Virus – Description

A new copycat of the CryptoLocker ransomware has emerged on the radar of malware researchers, recently. They have dubbed it Suppteam01@india.com as that email is the only viably distinguishable characteristic of the virus. There have been numerous copycats and versions of the CryptoLocker ransomware in 2016, and this continues to happen.

Whenever the Suppteam01@india.com ransomware executes its payload, it will set automatic launch functionality by configuring values in the Windows Registry. Those values will be set inside new registry entries and function to start the virus automatically when the Windows OS is booted. After encryption, a pop-up window will appear on your desktop screen, containing the ransom message. You can view how it looks like and what its demands are from the below screenshot:

stf-suppteam01-india-com-ransomware-virus-cryptolocker-crypto-locker-copycat-ransom-note

The text of the ransom note will also be included in a file named “Your files are locked !!!!.txt“. The file will be created for every directory that has encrypted files and the instructions provided inside are the following:

Support e-mails: suppteam01@india.com suppteam01@yandex.ru
Your personal files encryption produced on this computer: photos, videos, documents, etc. Encryption was produced using a unique public key RSA-2048 generated for this computer.
To decrypt files you need to obtain the private key.
The single copy of the private key, which will allow to decrypt the files, located on a secret server on the Internet; the server will destroy the key after a time specified in this window. After that nobody and never will be able to restore files.

To obtain the private key for this computer, which will automatically decrypt files, you need pay 1.2 Bitcoin (~761 USD)
You can easily delete this software, but you must know that without it, you will never be able to get your original files back.
Disable your antivirus to prevent the removal of this software.
For more information on how to buy and send bitcoins, click ‘Pay with Bitcoin’. To open a list of encoded files, click ‘Show Files’.
Do not delete this list, it will be used for decryption. And do not move your files.

The main email address that the ransomware virus uses for contacting with the cybercriminals is Suppteam01@india.com. Being a copycat ransomware and not the first of its kind has led to its name to be the same as the primary email address left for contact. You are given a 120-hour deadline to pay up, and the hefty sum of 1.2 Bitcoins which is the equivalent of 761 US dollars. The ransom message in the pop-up window looks almost identical to that of the Sanction ransomware virus.

Other emails that could be used for payment are:

  • Suppteam02@india.com
  • Suppteam02@yandex.ru
  • Suppteam03@india.com
  • Suppteam03@yandex.ru

The thought of paying the cybercriminals shouldn’t even come to your mind, as ransomware makers have proved that many times they will not decrypt your files, let alone contact you back. By not giving this ransomware a brand and mimicking the CryptoLocker one, the crooks have no name to build fame for and no incentive to return your files to their original state. In fact, the extortionists will most likely use the money to create more ransomware or do other criminal acts.

Suppteam01@india.com can encrypt file types similar to ransomware viruses of its caliber – namely, with the following file extensions:

→.bak, .bmp, .dbf, .djvu, .doc, .docx, .exe, .flv, .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .mdb, .mdf, .mkv, .mov, .mpeg, .mpg, .odt, .pdf, .png, .pps, .pptm, .pptx, .psd, .rar, .raw, .tar, .tif, .tiff, .txt, .vob, .wav, .wma, .wmv, .xls, .xlsb, .xlsx, .zip, .rar, .tar

The file extension list might be incomplete, but those file types are probably the ones to become encrypted. The encrypted files will have no name change and no new prefixes or extensions appended to them. In other words, the file names will remain completely untouched. To recognize which files are locked is easy as they will have a bigger size and you won’t be able to access them. The ransomware states to utilize a 2048-bit AES encryption algorithm which is not thought to be possible. That is since a 512-bit key will have multiple errors and be unstable, let alone any bigger key size.

The Suppteam01@india.com ransomware might erase the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the following command-line parameter:

→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet

Read on and see what methods you can try for data and file restoration of your encrypted files.
