Buybackdate ransomware is the name of the newest extension that was discovered by cybersecurity researchers through VirusTotal. According to experts, buybackdate belongs to the same ransomware family as ZEPPELIN.
Like other ransomware groups, buybackdate follows the pattern of attacks through contaminated email, pirated programs, and other techniques to break into the victim’s system and start the encryption process.
Once the malware finds a breach, all files begin to receive the extension “.bbd2.[id_victim]” and access to them is blocked until a decryption key is used or the encryption is broken.
On the victim’s desktop after infection, a ransom note called “ALL YOUR FILES ARE ENCRYPTED.txt” is left. In its content is possible to find an explanation of what happened to the victim and the processes to enter into negotiations with the hackers and possess the data back.
To prove that they really have a key to access the data again, a single file can be sent to have it recovered. After that, to gain access to the rest of the files, it is necessary to pay bitcoin to the hackers.
It is worth noting that negotiation with ransomware groups is never recommended due to the poor security this medium provides.
