More Details

This ransomware was basically spread in Scandinavia utilizing spam mails, which accompanies with a Word report. when the mail opens it executes and downloads the ransomware on the casualty's PC.

The ransomware then goes ahead to encode the client's most vital archives, by renaming documents with the ".breaking_bad" record expansion.

Access to the scrambled documents is bolted, and proprietors can recapture their information only after they pay the payment by sending messages to two diverse Gmail accounts. This forces the victim to interact with the criminals in order to retrieve their data. This ransomware also provides a link which shows the victim how to use the bitcoin.

While the ".breaking_bad" document expansion and the two diverse Gmail records is a creative touch, the way the ransomware is conveyed is entirely unimportant, being additionally utilized by numerous other malware campaigns, not simply ransomware.
