Magic is a new type of ransomware that has been created specifically to target businesses. This ransomware is unique in that it uses a novel technique to encrypt files, making it nearly impossible to decrypt without the unique encryption key. Magic is also notable for its ability to spread quickly throughout an organization, as it can replicate itself and infect other computers on the network. Magic is particularly dangerous because it targets critical data and systems, which can render a business completely unable to operate.

History

It was first discovered in the wild in early 2017. Since then, it has become one of the most prevalent types of ransomware, with variants appearing regularly. We believe Magic Ransomware to be created by a Russian cybercrime group known as Petya/NotPetya. This group is also responsible for creating the infamous Petya ransomware, which caused billions of dollars in damage when it was released in 2016.

How does Magic work?

Magic Ransomware is a form of malware that is designed to encrypt files on your computer, making them impossible to open without a unique encryption key. Magic is a serious threat to businesses and individuals alike. It will target all types of files, including documents, images, and even databases. Once this ransomware has encrypted your files, it will display a ransom note that instructs you on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your data. Attackers typically spread Magic through email attachments or malicious websites. Once Magic Ransomware has infected your computer, it will scan your network for other computers to infect. It is particularly dangerous because it can quickly spread throughout an organization, causing widespread damage.

Protection

There are several steps you can take to protect yourself from Magic Ransomware. First, make sure that you have a reliable anti-virus program installed on your computer. Secondly, be cautious when opening email attachments or clicking on links in emails. If you receive an email from an unknown sender, do not open any attachments or click on any links. Finally, always back up your data regularly. This will allow you to restore your files if Magic Ransomware encrypts them.

What encryption algorithm does Magic use?

Magic Ransomware uses the RSA4096 encryption algorithm, which is a very strong form of encryption. This type of encryption is virtually impossible to break without a unique encryption key. Magic will generate a unique encryption key for each computer it infects. This key is then used to encrypt your files. The only way to decrypt your files is to pay the ransom and obtain the decryption key from the attackers.

How much does Magic Ransomware cost?

The amount of the ransom varies depending on the variant of Magic Ransomware that attackers infected you with. However, this ransomware typically demands a ransom of 1-2 Bitcoin. It will give you a deadline to pay the ransom, typically 7 days. If you do not pay the ransom within the specified period, Magic will delete your encryption key and you will be unable to decrypt your files.

Should I pay the Magic Ransomware ransom?

Paying the ransom is not advisable. First, there is no guarantee that you will receive the decryption key even if you do pay the ransom. Second, paying the ransom only serves to encourage the attackers and fund future attacks. Finally, by paying the ransom, you are supporting a criminal enterprise.

How can I remove Magic Ransomware?

If attackers infected you with Magic Ransomware, your best course of action is to restore your data from a backup. There is no guaranteed way to remove Magic Ransomware from your computer without losing your data.

Public decryption tool

There is no public decryption tool available for Magic Ransomware.

What should I do?
