Makop Ransomware

Makop ransomware has been expanding through its affiliate program, RaaS (Ransomware as a Service), a tactic that aims to seek partners to carry out attacks by only charging a commission on top of the ransom value. This tactic is intended to expand the attacks by bringing renown to the group.

The main target of this group has been companies in South Korea, not that they ignore companies in Europe and America, but they focus is on Korea. The group’s main targets are companies in manufacturing, education, media, technology, construction, pharmaceutical, legal, engineering, and defense.

The group uses spam email campaigns, these emails contain employment forms and materials related to copyright infringement, the ransomware is hidden in these files, which once installed disables all programs that could stop it and starts the encryption process.

At the end of the process a desktop file with a name “readme-warning.txt” is left, this document contains the group’s demands and what ways the victim can contact them.

To demonstrate that the group has the decryption key, they decrypt two files for free, but with some conditions such as not containing valuable information to the company and also no larger than 1 MB.

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.
