Admin Locker Ransomware

The Admin Locker ransomware was first seen in December 2021, the group uses a junction of the RSA and AES algorithms for encryption, this algorithm is extremely complex and produces a decryption key that only the group has access to.

The Admin Locker targets all files stored on the device, as well as the backup system so that all possibilities of restoring the files are compromised.

The group uses numerous strategies to break into the victim’s system, the most used are by distributing pirated media, game cracks, software activators, but these are not the only ways the group can exploit other strategies such as spam email campaigns, phishing, among others.

The group adds extensions to the encrypted files, these are: .admin1, .admin2, .admin3, .1admin, .2admin or .3admin. All files with these extensions cannot be opened without the decryption key.

The group leaves a file on the desktop with the ransom terms as well as explaining how what happened to the victim’s files, some threats that the files can only be accessed with the help of the groups, and a link to the TOR browser for the victim to contact and negotiate the ransom amount.

The ransom amounts can easily reach thousands of dollars, and there is no guarantee from the group that the key will even be released after payment.

Ransomware Recovery FAQ

Every day, ransomware attacks get better and better. After a successful attack attempt, ransomware quickly maps the user’s most important files to begin encryption. Microsoft Office files, databases, PDFs and design are among its main targets.

Ransomware is designed to be unnoticeable, so it can disable all system defenses without being noticed and start the process of encrypting the files. Even though ransomware can go unnoticed by the system, it can still be noticed by the user, because ransomware uses the system’s own resources to do the encryption, this can slow down the system. Ransomware also changes file extensions. So be on the lookout for these signs: System slowdown and extensions being added to files.

Yes, it is possible. You can restart the computer in safe mode which will limit the ransomware’s action as system resources will be locked. You can also disconnect the computer from the Internet which can interrupt the hackers’ connection to your system, it is worth remembering that there is ransomware that works even without being connected to the Internet. You can also start the diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus, the vast majority of antiviruses have this function.
But there are cases where the encryption was interrupted by the user, some files had already been affected and this caused an error in the encryption and even the hackers could not restore the files, even with the decryption key. In these cases only a data recovery company, such as Digital Recovery, can recover the files.
