What is 0010 SYSTEM FAILURE 0010 ransomware? And how does it carry out its attack?
0010 SYSTEM FAILURE 0010 ransomware is a file-encrypting Trojan infection that corrupts a victim’s files and extorts money from them in exchange for file recovery. It is one of the ransomware threats discovered in May 2019. It uses random string in marking its encrypted files.
Once 0010 SYSTEM FAILURE 0010 ransomware is up and running in the system, it will connect the system to a remote Command and Control server and then download its malicious components from there. These components are used to employ an information gathering module used to collect information about the infected computer and send them to the remote server. After that, it runs another module called stealth protection which is used to bypass security programs like Firewall, antivirus and other programs like sandbox environment and virtual hosts. Moreover, it also makes alterations in the Windows Registry in order for the crypto-virus to run on every system startup. Right after applying these changes, 0010 SYSTEM FAILURE 0010 ransomware will begin the encryption process and once it’s done, it will drop an html file named “DECRYPT-FILES.html” which contains the following message:
“0010 SYSTEM FAILURE 0010
