AROS ransomware

Ransomware AROS is the name of malware that has been carrying out attacks by encrypting victims and charging ransom to give the files back.

AROS is spread via social engineering on the internet, advertisements, and also via infected email with the ransomware extension.

After receiving the extension on your computer, the ransomware starts attacking all files by encrypting each of them. The data is given the RSA encryption algorithm that encrypts it and to unlock it, an access key that only the hackers possess is needed.

When the process is finished, all data is given an extension with a randomly generated ID, an email for negotiation and lastly, the acronym “.ARS” is added by AROS, as in the following example: “example.png.[8hfeov6ydr][email protected]

To communicate with the hackers and negotiate the recovery, a ransom note with the name “How_to_decrypt_files.txt.” is assigned to the device’s desktop, containing the information needed to contact the hackers via chat via TOX and start the negotiation. It is worth noting that this action is not recommended.
