LambdaLocker Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts files on your computer and demands a ransom from you to decrypt them. This ransomware is particularly dangerous because it uses strong encryption algorithms that make it very difficult to recover your files without paying the ransom. We also know LambdaLocker for its ability to spread quickly through networks, making it a serious threat to businesses and organizations. If attackers have infected you with LambdaLocker, it is important to act quickly to minimize the damage and protect your data.


This ransomware was first discovered in early 2016. It is believed to be the work of a Russian cybercrime group known as Evil Corp. LambdaLocker is a successor to another piece of ransomware known as Locky, which was also created by Evil Corp. LambdaLocker uses the same encryption algorithms as Locky, but adds a few additional features that make it more dangerous.

For one, LambdaLocker uses a new technique for spreading itself through networks. This allows the ransomware to infect multiple computers very quickly and easily. Additionally, LambdaLocker employs some anti-detection mechanisms that make it more difficult for security software to detect and remove the malware.

Because LambdaLocker uses strong encryption algorithms, it is very difficult to decrypt files without paying the ransom. Even if you can remove the malware from your system, your files will remain encrypted. This makes LambdaLocker a particularly dangerous form of ransomware.

What encryption algorithm does LambdaLocker use?

LambdaLocker uses the RSA-2048 encryption algorithm.

How do I know if I am infected with LambdaLocker?

There are a few signs that you may be infected with ransomware. First, you may see a message on your screen that demands a ransom to decrypt your files. This message will usually include instructions on how to pay the ransom. Second, you may notice that some of your files have been encrypted. These files will usually have a new extension that is appended to the end of the file name. Finally, your computer may run more slowly than usual or crash more frequently.

What types of files does LambdaLocker encrypt?

It will encrypt nearly all types of files on your computer. This includes documents, pictures, music, videos, and more. LambdaLocker will also encrypt any file with a common file extension, such as .doc, .xls, or .jpg.

What is the ransom payment like?

The ransom payment for LambdaLocker is typically between 1 and 2 Bitcoins. The exact amount depends on the victim’s location and the number of files that have been encrypted.

If you do not pay the ransom within 7 days, LambdaLocker will delete the private key needed to decrypt your files. This means that you will no longer be able to decrypt your files even if you do pay the ransom.

Should I pay the LambdaLocker ransom?

Paying the ransom is not recommended, as there is no guarantee that you will get your files back even if you do pay. Additionally, paying the ransom only encourages the creators of LambdaLocker to continue their activities.


There are a few things you can do to prevent yourself from this ransomware and others like it:

– Keep your software up to date: LambdaLocker exploits vulnerabilities in outdated software to infect computers, so it is important to keep all of your software up to date.

– Use a reputable antivirus program: Antivirus programs can detect and remove LambdaLocker ransomware before it has a chance to encrypt your files.

– Be careful with emails and attachments: attackers often spread LambdaLocker through email attachments, so it is important to be careful when opening emails and attachments from unknown senders.

– Back up your data: This is the best way to protect your data from ransomware. LambdaLocker will only be able to encrypt files that are on your computer, so if you have backups, you will still be able to access your data even if your files are encrypted.

What should I do?

If they have infected you with LambdaLocker, it is important to act quickly to minimize the damage. The first step is to isolate any infected computers from the rest of your network. This will prevent the ransomware from spreading further. You should then run a scan of your system with an anti-malware program to remove the LambdaLocker malware.

Even after removing the malware, however, your files will remain encrypted. To recover them, you will need to use a data recovery program. These programs are designed to decrypt files that have been encrypted by LambdaLocker and other types of ransomware.

Public decryption tool

The No More Ransom Project offers a free decryption tool for LambdaLocker Ransomware. This tool is not always effective, but it may be worth a try if you cannot restore your files from backups.

Paying the ransom

As mentioned above, we do not recommend paying the LambdaLocker ransom. However, if you decide to pay the ransom, you should first try to negotiate with the attackers. You can do this by contacting them through the email address provided in the ransom note. LambdaLocker’s developers have been known to offer discounts on ransom payments if victims contact them directly. You should only pay through Bitcoin. Do not use a service that requires you to provide personal information, such as your credit card number. Additionally, make sure to keep a record of the transaction in case you need to contact the LambdaLocker creators later on.

Should I format my hard drive?

Formatting your hard drive will not remove LambdaLocker from your computer. Additionally, it will delete all the data on your hard drive, which means that you will no longer be able to decrypt your files even if you do pay the ransom.

Contact a data recovery service

If the No More Ransom Project’s decryption tool is not effective, you may be able to decrypt your files by working with a data recovery service. These services often have access to more sophisticated decryption tools that can decrypt LambdaLocker ransomware.

SalvageData Recovery Services is one such service that offers LambdaLocker decryption.
