Ransomware Haron

Haron ransomware is relatively new, along with Blackmatter ransomware and AvosLocker it has been vying for the spot left by REvil Sodinokibi and Darkside and especially Avaddon ransomware which seems to be Haron’s direct predecessor.

The Haron group follows a “good manners” norm, they restrict attacks to specific sectors such as:

  • Hospitals.
  • Critical infrastructure facilities (nuclear power plants, power plants, water treatment facilities).
  • Oil and gas industry (pipelines, oil refineries).
  • Defense industry
  • Non-profit companies
  • Government sector.

If any of these sectors are attacked, the group says it will give away the decryption key for free, this is the same mode of operation as the BlackMatter ransomware.

The group works with RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tactics, which is the outsourcing of attacks. In numerous Darkweb forums the group appears selling its services in exchange for a commission on the ransom value.

The Haron ransomware attacks are focused on the Windows operating system. Most antivirus software cannot identify the presence of the ransomware after a break-in, because the ransomware is hardly noticeable.

Haron’s encryption is so powerful that even after removing the virus the data can remain encrypted. And should this happen, recovery of the encrypted data will be necessary.
