Ransom Cartel

The Ransom Cartel has emerged with similarities to the REvil Sodinokibi ransomware, there are certain technical similarities between them, however, it is unclear whether it is really a copy of REvil or a new ransomware that is simply similar.

The files encrypted by Ransom Cartel feature the extension change, ‘.294l0jaf59.‘ is added. The ransom note closely resembles the note from the renowned Revil Sodinokibi. 

The leaders of the REvil group remain with unknown fate, but numerous groups have attempted to take over the legacy left by REvil, which was one of the most lethal groups of recent times. Perhaps the Ransom Cartel is another such group. 

To attack its victims, Ransom Cartel uses Phishing campaigns to access the device, and after the invasion it starts encrypting and blocking access from the administrators. After finishing the encryption process a ransom note is left on the desktop.

In the ransom note is left the information for the victim to contact the group and make the payment of the ransom, this contact is made by .TOR and the payment is made in cryptocurrencies.

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.
