Ramsomeer Ransomware Description

The Ransomeer ransomware is a newly discovered virus which originates from Turkey. This assumption is given as the ransomware note is delivered in two languages – English and Turkish. At the moment it is still under investigation and we do know if the threat contains any special features other than the observed encryption module.

Ransomeer ransomware uses the AES cipher to encrypt target user data – particularly the most often used multimedia files such as photos, audio and videos, as well as various configuration files, databases, office documents and other sensitive information.

Once the encryption is complete the virus displays the ransom note using a screenlocker which prohibits any further user interaction:
