KRider Ransomware is a file encryption Trojan that get launched into your machine, without user awareness. This unwanted application get submitted to an online security platform on March 3rd, 2017. KRider Ransomware is named after “Krider.exe”, that is main encryption engine in one of the sampled submitted online. In the initial report for the KRider Ransomware that is said that its not tied to documented crypto-threat families that are based around EduCrypt, Hidden Tear, Dharma and Crysis. Furthermore, this harmful KRider Ransomware behaves as the same way as most encryption Trojans, that aimed at regular computer users. Krider ransomware completely scans the machine for connected storage disks and then makes a list of targeted objects. Hence, the in-Dev version of the KRider Ransomware always suggests that, its get aimed at home computers, as opposed to server networks, and it also prioritizes the encryption of text, images, spreadsheets and presentations. However, at the time of writing this ransomware, the research on the KRider Ransomware is underway and its also safe to stay that compromised users may also find that the KRider Ransomware encrypts following types of files:-
.3GP, .7Z, .APK, .AVI, .BMP, .CDR, .CER, .CHM, .CONF, .CSS, .CSV, .DAT, .DB, .DBF, .DJVU, .DBX, .DOCM, ,DOC, .EPUB, .DOCX .FB2, .FLV, .GIF, .GZ, .ISO .IBOOKS,.JPEG, .JPG, .KEY, .MDB .MD2, .MDF, .MHT, .MOBI .MHTM, .MKV, .MOV, .MP3, .MP4, .MPG .MPEG, .PICT, .PDF, .PPS, .PKG, .PNG, .PPT .PPTX, .PPSX, .PSD, .RAR, .RTF, .SCR, .SWF, .SAV, .TIFF, .TIF, .TBL, .TORRENT, .TXT, .VSD,.WMV, .XLS, .XLSX, .XPS, .XML, .CKP, .ZIP, .JAVA, .PY, .ASM, .C, .CPP, .CS, .JS, .PHP, .DACPAC, .RBW, .RB, .MRG, .DCX, .DB3, .SQL, .SQLITE3, .SQLITE, .SQLITEDB, .PSD, .PSP, .PDB, .DXF, .DWG, .DRW, .CASB, .CCP, .CAL, .CMX, .CR2.
Therefore, the extent of the encryption that can be looking at the file names that get modified by the KRider Ransomware. The first samples of the KRider Ransomware were programmed to add the “.kr3” extension to the name of its enciphered files. For example, ‘Water.hyssop.jpeg’ is get replaced with ‘Water.hyssop.jpeg.kr3’ and the file does not have a thumbnail. Also, Windows Explorer may use a white icon to represent the data that are encrypted by KRider Ransomware. This threat functions like the “email@example.com”, and employs double encryption standards. Hence, the Trojan at hand uses the AES-256 cipher, to lock your targeted objects and uses the RSA-2048 cryptographic algorithm, to hide the decryption key, that is sent to the servers of the operators. Even if the PC Security investigators that are manages to intercept the data packages that are exchanged by the Trojan and it manages the private decryption key would remain out of the reach because it is an encrypted format. So, you should not rely on this unwanted application, and remove KRider Ransomware permanently from your system.
