The Lorenz Ransomware has been growing, even though it has not been active for a long period of time, it has already managed to target twelve different organisations. This shows the power of the group. It is similar to ThunderCrypt, apparently Lorenz used its source code.
The Ransomware works internally on a local network, making it find the accesses of the Windows domain administrators.
After that, it selects the files, and moves them to another remote server, making it impossible for the administrators to access them, thus beginning the encryption of the files.
The ransom charged by the group costs an average of US $500,000 to US $700,000 and with each passing day, the threats to victims increase.
If the victim does not want to pay the ransom, the group releases the files bit by bit as well as offering access to the network that was attacked.
Lorenz uses AES encryption and the embedded key RSA. Each file will have the specific name ‘.Lorenz.sz40’, thus changing its original name and also its extension.
Each victim receives in their folders the file called ‘HELP_SECURITY_EVENT.html’, which exists within it the link to the website, with the ransom information, the amount that must be paid in Bitcoin, and offering a chat for negotiations with the hackers.
The group’s strategies to access computers are through software cracks, game patches, and illegal key activation programs, or even purposeful direct attacks.
After knowing how its attack and encryption works, we know that it is not so simple to solve the problem. Being that it encrypts the systems and the network attacked.
However knowing this, we also need to understand that only professionals specialized in recovering data encrypted by Ransomware, can solve the problem.
