Emotet, one of the most advanced and dangerous botnets in the world in circulation for years, returns later a four-month break through a new malspam campaign, aimed at organizations and users. Starting from 16 September 2019 the botnet has completely resurfaced and resumed spamming operations.
Syrk Ransomware set a trap for Fortnite gamers, it disguise as a cheat hack, but actually encrypts files and then deletes them every two hours unless the victim pays up.
This Wiper is named as GermanWiper due to its targeting of German victims and it being a destructive wiper rather than a ransomware. It destroys its victim's files by filling zeros in it and yet ask for 0.15 BTC or $1500.
LooCipher encrypts the files using AES-128 and adds the extension .lcphr. Emisoft publish a free decryptor for it.
