PayloadBIN Ransomware

The PayloadBIN ransomware is part of one of the world’s most feared groups, the Evil Corp, this group is responsible for numerous attacks in the United States that have generated losses running into the millions of dollars.

The attacks were being so recurrent that the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) imposed sanctions against the group, imposing fines on companies that dealt with the cybercriminals, making it very difficult to pay the ransom.

To try to get around these sanctions, the group created derivatives of its malware, developing the Wasted Locker, Hades, Phoenix, and the more recent PayloadBIN ransomware.

The Evil Corp group tried to mask PayloadBIN to make it look like it was a derivative of the BABUK ransomware. This group made an attack on the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC. This attack put the group that controlled the BABUK ransomware as a prime target for government agencies, which caused them to shut down all activities.

With the emergence of the PayloadBIN ransomware which uses a similar structure to BABUK, it was implied that the group had not shut down, but this was not confirmed, this was just a strategy by Evil Corp to mislead authorities.

PayloadBIN uses the tactic of double extortion, which not only encrypts the data, paralyzing the company’s activities, but also steals the files and threatens to release them if the company does not contact them and pay the ransom.

Unlike other ransomware groups that use only one site for the leak, PayloadBIN creates a site for each company, and there discloses the weaknesses of the companies and releases samples of the stolen data.

A file named ‘PAYLOADBIN-README.txt’ is left on the computer containing instructions on how the victim can contact the group and pay the ransom.

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.

Yes, attacks usually happen mainly on holidays and weekends during the early morning hours. These days are chosen because there are not many active users on the system, which prevents the attack from being discovered before the encryption is completed.
