Ragnar Locker Ransomware acts differently from other ransomware, because in addition to invading the system and encrypting the data, it also shuts down installed programs that could cause you some risk (such as software updaters and anti-malware) and that can somehow fight the ransomware attack and stop its system invasion.
This Ransomware emerged in late 2019, and like many other known ransomware variants, (such as BlackMatter, LockBit 2.0 and REvil) Ragnar Locker uses a double extortion technique, to “force” victims to pay, where data is locally encrypted and filtered before the ransom demand is made. And if the victim refuses to pay, their data is published on a website located on the dark web.
Ragnar Locker also features the “wall of shame,” where a list of victims recently attacked by them is published.
Ragnar Locker only attacks Windows operating systems, and these attacks are completely unobtrusive because the malware is only 55 kb in size.
The first thing they do after the invasion is language scanning on the user’s system. For Ransomware avoids some countries and concentrates on Europe, the United States and Latin America.
Ragnar Locker also attributes attacks to some big companies, such as EDP (Portugal’s energy supplier) and Capcom (game developer), these attacks were million dollar attacks, one example, the group demanded EDP 10 million dollars so they could unlock and not leak the company’s data (which was valued at 10 TB of data).
