Magniber ransomware hits computers in a different way than other ransomware that uses spam links, malicious websites, rogue programs and more. Magniber attacks directly through fake Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge updates.
Upon entering a website, a pop-up will appear saying that your browser is outdated and giving you the option to click and download the update. After the victim clicks and downloads it, the data is encrypted and becomes inaccessible.
Once the data is encrypted, Magniber 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 channel for communication with the group and payment is done via TOR browser, payment is made in cryptocurrencies.
Payment is never recommended in any scenario as there is no guarantee that the key will be delivered after payment.
