What is DelphiRansomware ransomware? And how does it carry out its attack?
DelphiRansomware ransomware, also known as InducVirus ransomware, is a crypto-virus that was discovered recently. It uses “.FilGZmsp” extension in marking its encrypted files. In its encryption procedure, it employs the AES/RC6 encryption algorithm. But before the encryption, it makes system modifications first. It starts by connecting the infected computer to a remote server controlled by the attackers.
DelphiRansomware ransomware downloads its malicious components from the remote server and places them on system folders. Some of these components are executed in order to launch or repress system processes while the other ones are used for the data gathering and stealth protection modules. The first module is used to obtain data from the infected system which will be used for the second module. The stealth protection module is the one that scans the system for any security programs that might interfere with the attack and disables or removes them once they are found. In addition, DelphiRansomware ransomware also alters the Windows Registry so that it can automatically run on every system startup. After that, it looks for its targeted files and encrypts them using the AES/RC6 cipher. Once the encryption is completed, it appends the .FilGZmsp extension to each one of the compromised files. It then opens a program window which contains the ransom note that states:
“You files have been encrypted using RC6 Algorythm.
For decrypt contact to [email protected]
You have a 10 hours to contact us.
If your contacts after 10 hours – your files has flushed to toilet!
[Im fucking faggot! PLEASE DELETE MY SYSTEM!|BUTTON]”
If you are one of the unfortunate victims of this crypto-malware, it would be best if you cease to contact the crooks behind it and get rid of it from your computer as soon as you can instead.
How is the malicious payload of DelphiRansomware ransomware distributed?

- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\
- HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\
Step 10: Delete the registry keys and sub-keys created by DelphiRansomware ransomware.
Step 11: Close the Registry Editor.
Step 12: Empty your Recycle Bin.
Try to recover your encrypted files using their Shadow Volume copies
Restoring your encrypted files using Windows’ Previous Versions feature will only be effective if DelphiRansomware ransomware hasn’t deleted the shadow copies of your files. But still, this is one of the best and free methods there is, so it’s definitely worth a shot.
To restore the encrypted file, right-click on it and select Properties, a new window will pop-up, then proceed to Previous Versions. It will load the file’s previous version before it was modified. After it loads, select any of the previous versions displayed on the list like the one in the illustration below. And then click the Restore button.
