NRansom: Ransomware that demands your nudes

Recommended Posts

Ransomware has been called the scourge of the Internet for quite a while. It’s really one of the twenty-first century’s main cyberthreats, and recently it has taken … quite a turn. Researchers from MalwareHunterTeam have discovered a new strain of ransomware, called nRansom, that blocks victims’ computers, but instead of requiring money to unlock the computer, it demands nude photos.

This ransomware seems to be not a cryptor, but rather a blocker, which means that in case of infection it doesn’t encrypt your files, but simply blocks access to your computer. The ransom note that appears on the screen informs victims that the only way to get back access to their computers is to send the aforementioned pictures: ten of them, nude, and demonstrably of the victims.

They state that they will somehow verify those nudes really belong to the victim before sending the code that unlocks the computer.

 

 

At this point, nRansom has been seen only as a file called nRansom.exe, which means it affects only Windows users.

We can only speculate on what the criminals are planning to do with any photos they manage to get. They’ll probably use the pictures to shame the victims and extort either more nudes or money.

As always, we advise you not to pay the ransom if your computer gets infected. The word “pay” in this case is as legitimate as in any other; private information is no less payment than money.

Kaspersky Internet Security detects nRansom as Trojan-Ransom.MSIL.Agent.zz and neutralizes it right away. In case the blocker has somehow sneaked onto your PC, you can unblock the computer by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Shift + F4 simultaneously. It’s necessary to run a full scan of your system after that. You can

That technique is available in all of our flagship security solutions, and it works against all blockers, in case they somehow get onto your computer. However, if you always keep protection running, that scenario is highly unlikely; Kaspersky Internet Security neutralizes almost all ransomware species before they can do anything at all, and any that manage to sneak in under the radar are detected by System Watcher when they attempt to do anything malicious.

Protonmail will send them to jail, bad choice of e-mail as like send pictures? Not smart people at all.

If someone good send them a crafted jpg exe they will end.

 

If someone that good!! they won't be infected from the beginning :blink:

Good? Professional people ask payment in bitcoins to not be tracked, and know about Protonmail working with proper agencies.

This is a work of teens, with a pre-crafted ransomware generator tool. Their main error is the request of image, after using Protonmail.

I agree with you 100%  but what i'm saying is just look at it from a regular user perspective .! it's not that easy

There is a high chance this people never wrote a line of code in their life, using other malware coder work to gain profit, there are at least 3 index in the metodology that say are newbies.

regular user will send image

Exactly That's what i meant! it doesn'tt matter if it's this ransam  or what ever ,

Regular people will do what ever to get them stuff back.

send nudes or 'think' you lost all your stuff (they would think losing your stuff wouldn't be worse.. haha!).. no one is going to send nudes.. lol even non computer people aren't that stupid, only a teenager would probably think they would be..

Having an unknown person send a nude picture over the internet opens the recipient up for multiple charges on both the state, federal, and international level.  If the person is under 18 or still in school, it is considered child pornography and the FBI is famous for tracking them down internationally.  There are some really stupid people on the internet who want to be 'hackers' or 'pirates' but they are usually easy to find since they use the word hacker in their name or the not often used any more term elite.  Most of them are script kiddies, while some don't even have enough sense to download a script and get it from their friends.

The funny thing is that they opened a new mail every now and then, and they still running! I guess no body is taking them seriously.

I wonder if AV companies are the ones releasing such crap just to get more people to download and buy AV software?   I mean I would toss out lots of malware if I had an AV company then make sure to advertise that we offer protection from it only because it seems like common sense to me.

 

I mean look at the source of the article then at the bottom it reads: " Kaspersky Internet Security neutralizes almost all ransomware species before they can do anything at all, and any that manage to sneak in under the radar are detected by System Watcher when they attempt to do anything malicious."

 

Maybe I just don't trust obvious plug articles but the conspiracy wouldn't surprise me at all.

Antivirus companies intentionally don't detect government spyware, even if they say they can't find it or don't know about it heuristics would go crazy for them normally and at least show as a possibility.. (the trick usually is they can digitally sign things as safe) AV is just a backdoor now to everybody.. A real decent firewall should be able to detect any activity on the network a.k.a. not just yep it's chrome it's safe.. should check okay it's chrome but a new thread / dll / process spawned from chrome is trying to access the internet then memory attacks would be detected very easily (but i guess cause it would be too hard to bypass they never will) ..
