AROS Ransomware

Ransomware AROS is the name of malware that has been carrying out attacks by encrypting victims and charging ransom to deliver their files back.

AROS is spread via social engineering on the internet, advertisements and also via infected email with the ransomware extension.

After receiving the extension on your computer, the ransomware starts attacking all the files by encrypting each of them. The data is given the RSA encryption algorithm which encrypts it and to unlock it, you need an access key that only the hackers possess.

When the process is finished, all data is given an extension with a randomly generated ID, an email for negotiation and lastly, the acronym “.ARS” is added by AROS, as in the following example: “example.png.[8hfeov6ydr]”

To communicate with the hackers and negotiate the recovery, a ransom note with the name “How_to_decrypt_files.txt.” is assigned to the device’s desktop, containing the information needed to contact the hackers via chat via TOX and initiate the negotiation. It is worth noting that this action is not recommended.
