Kaenlupuf is cryptocurrency ransomware that was discovered by researchers in July 2018. The Kaenlupuf Ransomware targets Windows systems and encrypts the user’s files using the AES-256 encryption algorithm. Kaenlupuf then demands a ransom be paid in Bitcoin for the decryption key.

Attackers usually spread this ransomware through email attachments or malicious websites. The email attachment will generally be a .zip file that contains a .js file. When the .js file is executed, it will download and execute the Kaenlupuf Ransomware payload. They may also spread it through exploits kits such as Blackhole Exploit Kit or Rig Exploit Kit.

Also, attackers may spread it through legitimate websites that have been hacked and are displaying malicious advertising. These websites generally have been compromised by injecting malicious JavaScript code into their web pages. When visitors to these websites browse the web pages, the malicious JavaScript code will execute and download Kaenlupuf Ransomware onto the victim’s computer.

Kaenlupuf will drop a ransom note named READ ME NOW.txt in each folder that contains encrypted files. The Kaenlupuf Ransomware ransom note contains instructions on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files. It will also change the desktop background to an image that contains these instructions.

What types of files will Kaenlupuf Ransomware encrypt?

Kaenlupuf will target all files on the infected computer. This ransomware will append the .kaenlupuf extension to the encrypted files. Some of the file types that Kaenlupuf will encrypt are:
