Wana Decrypt0r Trojan-Syria Virus – Encryption
As Wana Decrypt0r Trojan-Syria ransomware is a HiddenTear variant it could seek to encrypt files with the following extensions:
→.txt, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .pdf, .pps, .ppt, .pptx, .odt, .gif, .jpg, .png, .db, .csv, .sql, .mdb.sln.php, .asp, .aspx, .html, .xml, .psd, .frm, .myd, .myi, .dbf, .mp3, .mp4, .avi, .mov, .mpg, .rm, .wmv, .m4a, .mpa, .wav, .sav, .gam, .log, .ged, .msg, .myo, .tax, .ynab, .ifx, .ofx, .qfx, .qif, .qdf, .tax2013, .tax2014, .tax2015, .box, .ncf, .nsf, .ntf, .lwp
Any file that gets encrypted will receive the same extension appended to them. Depending on the version that could be either the .Wana Decrypt0r Trojan-Syria Editi0n or the .wannacry. The encryption algorithm which is implemented is undoubtedly AES since it is a HiddenTear variant, but more algorithms could be added in the near future.
The Wana Decrypt0r Trojan-Syria virus might be set to erase all the Shadow Volume Copies from the Windows operating system with the aid of the following command:
