Venis ransomware is a cryptovirus that is currently in its development phase. Recently found by malware researchers, this virus is believed to be soon released as a fully functional ransomware. The cryptovirus already has a page set with the name “Venis” as the payment service available to victims. The ransomware creates a user profile on a compromised computer with an enabled Remote Desktop Connection. To see how to remove the virus and how you can try to restore your files if they got encrypted, read the article carefully.

Venis Ransomware – Infection Spread

Venis ransomware can infect your PC using various spread methods. Spam emails might be spreading its payload file. Spam campaigns may be launched to send emails which will try to make you believe that they are important. In addition, they will state that they have files attached to them, which are urgent or contain the entire message which was too long to be conveyed in the body of the e-mail. If open the file, however, the malicious code inside will infect your computer.

The Venis ransomware might be spreading its payload file on sharing services or social media networks. It was already reported that the developer of the virus had put it in comments on various forums saying that it is a decryptor for the new Cerber ransomware virus. Do not open files from suspicious e-mails or links. Scan files with a security application and check their signatures and size before opening. You should check out more ransomware preventing tips on our forum topic.

Venis Ransomware – Technical Details

Malware researchers have found Venis ransomware recently. The ransomware creates a new account profile on the Windows Operating System, named TEST. It enables the Remote Desktop Connection service and adds an exception rule to the Windows Firewall with the following command:

→netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”Remote Desktop” dir=in protocol=tcp localport=3389 profile=any action=allow (PID: 3796)

After Venis ransomware executes its payload file it will modify an auto-execute functionality by setting up values in the Windows Registry. Such values are set inside newly-created entries in the registry and are designed to make the virus automatically start when Windows is booted. If your files are encrypted, as the ransomware is still in a development phase, you should see a ransom message displayed on your desktop. You can view that ransom note from the below image:

stf-venis-ransomware-2016-virus-ransom-note-payment

The note reads the following:

VENIS

All your files has been encrypted with AES 2048. (Military Grade Encryption)
The key has been sent to our private server which we have access to.

There are no tools online that will allow you to decode your files for free.

Venis Ransomware
Email – VenisRansom@protonmail.com

The Venis ransomware virus currently uses the email address VenisRansom@protonmail.com as a contact with the cybercriminals. The encrypted e-mail service ProtonMail is becoming the popular choice for ransomware creators. And that will more than likely continue to be the case as that makes the job of law officers really hard about catching the crooks.

From the drop-down button found below, you can see a list with nearly 400 processes which Venis ransomware seeks to shut down once on a compromised machine. As you can see, the list contains processes of most Antivirus and adware programs that exist, including monitoring programs:

The Venis ransomware gives you a deadline of 72 hours to pay up and decrypt your data. The ransom note states that if the deadline passes, the copies of your files on the hackers’ servers will be deleted. Not only that, but it threatens to release all information gathered from your social media network profiles and other messages to the public. That is entirely possible if they manage to break your passwords and if you have conversations saved on your hard drive.

This is how the payment website looks like:

stf-venis-ransomware-2016-virus-encryption-main-page-for-ransom-payment

You shouldn’t think of paying the cybercriminals, as nobody can guarantee you will get all of your files back to normal after payment. The criminals can always make another ransomware or do other criminal acts with the financial support of victims who paid them. Besides, nothing stops them from extorting you further with your private conversations or releasing them publicly, outright.

The following list with file extensions has been found inside the code of Venis:

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

The list given above with the various file extensions is most probably for file types that will become encrypted. That deduction comes from the fact that a .DLL file contains the payload of the virus, and such a file type won’t get encrypted. The files which will get locked by the ransomware will probably have one, and the same file extension appended to them. The ransomware claims to utilize a 2048-bit AES encryption algorithm which is impossible, as 512-bit will have errors and be unstable, let alone a bigger key size.

The Venis ransomware deletes the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the following command:

→vssadmin.exe delete shadows /all /Quiet

Continue reading and see in what ways you can try to restore some of your data files.

Step 2: Uninstall Venis and related software from Windows

Here is a method in few easy steps that should be able to uninstall most programs. No matter if you are using Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista or XP, those steps will get the job done. Dragging the program or its folder to the recycle bin can be a very bad decision. If you do that, bits and pieces of the program are left behind, and that can lead to unstable work of your PC, errors with the file type associations and other unpleasant activities. The proper way to get a program off your computer is to Uninstall it. To do that:


1. Hold the Windows Logo Button and "R" on your keyboard. A Pop-up window will appear.


2. In the field type in "appwiz.cpl" and press ENTER.


3. This will open a window with all the programs installed on the PC. Select the program that you want to remove, and press "Uninstall"
Follow the instructions above and you will successfully uninstall most programs.


Step 3: Clean any registries, created by Venis on your computer.

The usually targeted registries of Windows machines are the following:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

You can access them by opening the Windows registry editor and deleting any values, created by Venis there. This can happen by following the steps underneath:

1. Open the Run Window again, type "regedit" and click OK.


2. When you open it, you can freely navigate to the Run and RunOnce keys, whose locations are shown above.


3. You can remove the value of the virus by right-clicking on it and removing it.
Tip: To find a virus-created value, you can right-click on it and click "Modify" to see which file it is set to run. If this is the virus file location, remove the value.

IMPORTANT!
Before starting "Step 4", please boot back into Normal mode, in case you are currently in Safe Mode.
This will enable you to install and use SpyHunter 5 successfully.
