Nuke is a type of malware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom for the decryption key. It is unique in that it uses the Windows Command Line Utility to encrypt your files.


When Nuke infects your computer, it will scan for all the files on your hard drive and encrypt them. Once your files have been encrypted, Nuke will display a ransom note that demands you pay a certain amount of money to get the decryption key.


It was first discovered in early 2016. Nuke is a variant of the Hidden Tear open-source Ransomware. Nuke is written in the C++ programming language.
