Marlboro Ransomware is a virus that encrypts your files and demands a ransom for the decryption key. It is a type of malware known as ransomware. Marlboro is a particularly dangerous form of ransomware because it uses a strong encryption algorithm that makes it very difficult to decrypt your files without the key. Attackers spread this ransomware through email attachments and links to websites that contain exploit kits. Once Marlboro Ransomware has infected your computer, it will scan your hard drive for certain types of files and encrypt them. Then, it will display a ransom note on your screen that demands you pay a ransom to receive the decryption key.

History

Marlboro Ransomware was first discovered in June 2016. Marlboro is a variant of CryptXXX Ransomware. Marlboro uses the same encryption algorithm as CryptXXX, but Marlboro Ransomware uses a different ransom note and contact information.

What encryption algorithm does Marlboro Ransomware use?

It uses the AES-256 encryption algorithm.

What types of files does Marlboro target?

Marlboro Ransomware targets certain types of files, such as documents, spreadsheets, and photos.

Protection

Marlboro is a serious threat to your computer and your data. It is important to take precautions to protect yourself from Marlboro and other forms of ransomware. Here are some things you can do to protect yourself:

– Keep your operating system and software up to date. Install security updates as soon as they are available.

– Use a reputable antivirus program and keep it up to date.

– Do not open email attachments from unknown senders. If you must open an attachment, scan it with your antivirus program first.

– Do not click on links in email messages from unknown senders.

– Be cautious when downloading files from the Internet. Only download files from trusted websites.

– Do not click on links in pop-up windows.

– Do not provide personal or financial information to anyone who contacts you unsolicited.

How much does Marlboro Ransomware cost?

The price of the decryption key depends on how much data you have and how quickly you need it. Marlboro Ransomware will give you a discount if you pay within 24 hours. The ransom note states:

“If you want to decrypt your files, send us 0.5 bitcoins and we will send you the decryption key. If you don’t pay within 24 hours, the price will increase to 1 bitcoin.”

What should I do?

If they infected you with Marlboro Ransomware, it is important to take steps to remove the virus and protect your computer from further infection. Here are some things you can do:

– Do not pay the ransom. There is no guarantee that you will receive the decryption key even if you do pay the ransom. Also, paying the ransom just encourages the attackers to continue their malicious activity.

– Use a reputable antivirus program to scan your computer and remove Marlboro Ransomware.

– Use an anti-malware program.

– Use a ransomware removal tool.

– Restore your files from a backup if you have one. If you do not have a backup, try using file recovery software to recover your files. Some file recovery programs may be able to recover some of your encrypted files.
