The Week in Ransomware – May 24th 2019 – Smacking ‘Em Down With Decryptors



This was not a very busy week, with mostly new variants of STOP Djvu and Dharma being released.

The bad news is that the RIG exploit kit was discovered distributing the GetCrypt Ransomware through PopCash malvertising campaigns. The good news is that Emsisoft was quickly able to come up with a decryptor for that ransomware and also released a decryptor for JSWorm 2.0.

Contributors and those who provided new ransomware information and stories this week include: @malwareforme@BleepinComputer@PolarToffee@fwosar@jorntvdw@demonslay335@hexwaxwing@LawrenceAbrams@FourOctets@struppigel@DanielGallagher@malwrhunterteam@Seifreed@nao_sec@VK_Intel@Emsisoft@NirajC@WDRBNews@x42x5a, and @GrujaRS.
