The Magniber ransomware, was identified in 2017 by malware researcher, Michael Gillespie. The research points out that the group is a variant of the Cerber ransomware, and today is already in its Magniber 2022 version.
Its main attack targets have been directed at South Korea, which has already fallen victim to invasions with losses as high as $1 million.
The malware hits computers in a different way than other ransomware that uses spam links, malicious websites, illicit programs and others. Magniber attacks directly through fake updates to Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Windows and Linux operating systems.
Upon entering a website, a pop-up appears saying that your browser or operating system is outdated, and gives you the option to click and download the update. After clicking and downloading, the data starts to be encrypted and becomes inaccessible.
Once the data is encrypted, Magniber adds an extension of random characters, making it difficult to search for a solution and encouraging ransom payment.
The ransomware also creates the ransom note in a .txt file that is left on the desktop. In it the group leaves the means for the victim to make the payment to receive the decryption key.
Usually, the communication channel with the group and payment is done via TOR browser, where their domain is as My Dreyptor. And finally, payment is requested in Bitcoin.
Payment is never recommended in any scenario, as there is no guarantee that the key will be delivered after payment.
