MedusaLocker Ransomware

The MedusaLocker ransomware targets its attacks on small and medium-sized businesses. The group was first spotted in September 2019, being noticed by MalwareHunterTeam.

The ransomware invades the system from macros, malicious ads, and torrent sites. After execution, Medusa begins to encrypt files by adding extensions making it impossible to access the information. The group uses numerous extensions such as:

  • .1btc
  • .matlock20
  • .marlock02
  • .readinstructions
  • .bec
  • .mylock
  • .jpz.nz
  • .marlock11
  • .cn
  • .NET1
  • .key1
  • .fileslocked
  • .datalock
  • .NZ
  • .lock
  • .lockfilesUS
  • .deadfilesgr
  • .tyco
  • .lockdata7
  • .rs
  • .faratak
  • .uslockhh
  • .lockfiles
  • tyco
  • .fileslock
  • zoomzoom
  • .perfection
  • .uslockhh
  • .marlock13
  • exe
  • .Readinstruction
  • .marlock08
  • .marlock25
  • nt_lock20
  • .marlock6
  • .marlock01
  • .ReadInstructions

It is advisable that in cases of invasion, the machine’s internet is disabled, avoiding the contamination of other systems connected to the same network.

The group uses a strategy to attract trust by offering to decrypt a file of the victim’s choice up to 10Mb. MedusaLocker uses AES 256 + RSA-2048 encryption, an algorithm that prevents any free ransomware tool from succeeding and can cause permanent data loss if used.

To make the negotiation a link is added with the ransom note, allowing the victim to contact the group and make the payment in Bitcoin. However, there is no guarantee of obtaining the decryption key.
Therefore, the best way is to turn to companies that specialize in the problem, and Digital Recovery has the right profile to recover files encrypted by ransomware.

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.

You can also start the diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus, the vast majority of antiviruses have this function.
