Commandline Myransomware Ransomware Description

The Commandline Myransomware was just discovered by security specialists. As the name suggests this is a commandline utility that is able to execute ransomware actions against the computer victims that have been infected with the threat. What this means is that the ransomare can be triggered by another payload, such as a virus or a Trojan, to encrypt and modify target user files. And while the program cannot operate on its own (without any passed arguments to it), it can be used in complicated attack campaigns.

There are several options that the hackers can use to cause damage to the infected victims:

    Encryption Options

  • E1 (Encryption) – This encrypts and then deletes the target file(s)
  • E2 (Encryption) – This encrypts and then renames the target file(s)
  • E3 (Encryption) – This encrypts and then overwrites the target file(s)
  • E4 (Encryption) – This renames and encrypts the target file(s)
  • Decryption Options

  • D1 (Decryption) – Decrypts the target file(s)
  • D2 (Decryption) – Decrypts the target file(s) except the header
  • File Type Target Options

  • / JPG (File Type) – Targets the JPG file name extension (default setting)
  • /HWP (File Type) – Targets the HWP file name extension
  • /DOC (File Type) – Targets the DOC file name extension
  • Miscellaneous options

  • /MBR – Attacks the Master Boot Record of the Disk (MBR)
  • /VOL – Deletes the Volume Shadow Copies
  • /CRS – Instigates a system crash
  • Injection Options

  • /INJ (Target PID) – Injects into the target system process and encrypts the given target file name extensions

There is still not information available about the hackers who have devised the ransomware. Fortunately anti-virus and anti-spyware vendors have started to include the new threat in their definition lists.
