DemonWare Ransomware

The DemonWare ransomware has applied an extremely dangerous strategy for businesses, employee grooming. The groups have sent numerous emails to employees of large companies in order for them to become partners and install the ransomware.

While this tactic is very dangerous, since any access that a disgruntled employee provides renders all the protection that the company has developed to prevent attacks from outside almost irrelevant, it shows that the group is still an amateur in that it cannot hack into systems with its own resources.

But then again, this group is dangerous because of the tactics they apply. They offer 40% of the ransom for employee access.

DemonWare works like other ransomware by encrypting the data. In the process of encrypting the information, the affected files change their extension to “.DEMON”. After that it creates messages in pop-up windows, and creates a “README.txt” file.

Inside this ransom note is a link to some website to solve the payment of the decryption key.
