ZEON Ransomware

The ZEON ransomware is the newest group on the worldwide ransomware scene, the group has made numerous attacks on businesses.

ZEON uses AES and RSA encryption, which are extremely effective, the .zeon extension is added to the affected files, for example the file image1.jpg will become image1.jpg.zeon.

Files with this extension can only be opened with the decryption key that is kept on a remote server controlled by the criminals.

Ransomware in general works in the same way, the malware breaks into the victim’s system through spam email campaigns, links on malicious websites, unofficial programs, brute force attacks and sometimes by accessing the unprotected RDP port.

After the invasion the ransomware has the ability to hide for some time in the operating system by disabling antivirus and any other program that could prevent or interrupt the encryption process.

After the end of the encryption process the system is locked and a ransom note that is left on the desktop, the note is written in a threatening tone for the victim to pay the ransom as soon as possible.

Payment is not indicated as the group gives no guarantee that the decryption key will actually be released after payment, the criminals have no ties to the victim.

The ransom must be paid via cryptocurrencies that are virtually untraceable, all communication with the criminals is done via the .TOR browser.

Even though the group says that it is impossible to recover the data without the decryption key, this is not true, Digital Recovery is able to recover the encrypted files without it.
