Reyptson Ransomware – Dissemination Details

At this point, it seems that Reyptson Ransomware attacks Spanish-speaking users. However, it is likely that its authors will spread it globally soon. Reyptson Ransomware attack campaigns are likely to distribute its payloads via spam emails. That emails usually pose as legitimate services or even acquaintances attempting to trick users into interacting with an attached file or clicking a deceptive link. File attachments that disseminate ransomware infections are crafted by hackers. They may be PDF files that contain malicious JavaScript code, documents with malicious macros, and other files that contain code that can exploit system vulnerabilities once it is opened on the PC. Deceptive links, on the other hand, may redirect you to a web page that will unnoticeably download Reyptson payloads on the system.

One of the first attack campaigns of Reyptson Ransomware follows the stream:

    1. A crafted email delivers fake details about an invoice and provides a download button for the invoice.
    2. Once the button is clicked, a RAR file is downloaded on the PC.
    3. The RAR contains the malicious Reyptson Ransomware payload so after it is opened the infection process is triggered as well.
    4. While Reyptson Ransomware is encrypting data it distracts user’s attention by displaying a fake PDF document with a Windows notification window pop up. The pop up states that the PDF file could not be opened because its file type is not supported or it is corrupted.
    5. Upon infection, Reyptson ransomware collects SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) credentials and sends the same fake invoice email to every Thunderbird contact. So it is self-replicating via email and acts like a worm which makes it a very dangerous threat.
