BlockZ Ransomware

BlockZ ransomware has been extremely consistent in its recent attacks; numerous victims have come forward with files encrypted by the group.

The group acts mainly with spam and phishing email campaigns, this campaign consists of sending numerous emails with important messages, such as from banks, post offices, etc. Requesting that the user download a document to analyze the terms and in this document is contained the malware.

The ransomware does not manifest itself immediately, instead it hides in the victim’s system and disables the system’s defenses such as antivirus, firewalls, and others.

After disabling any programs that could counteract the encryption process, the ransomware completely maps the most important files such as PDFs, spreadsheets, documents, photos, etc.

After that it immediately starts encrypting the files, this can take some time, all affected files receive the extension .blockZ and are unable to be opened or changed.

After the process is completed, a document is generated with the ransom note, called ‘How To Restore Your Files.txt’.

The group charges high amounts to release the key to decrypt the files, the amount must be paid in cryptocurrencies and may vary according to the victim and the volume of encrypted data.

It is worth remembering that criminals give no guarantee that the decryption key will even be released after the ransom payment, there are numerous cases in which the victim made the payment and continued with the encrypted files.

In view of this, it is vital to know an alternative to payment, this alternative is the recovery of encrypted data done by Digital Recovery.
