Everything you need to know about Roga Ransomware

Roga is a type of malware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom to decrypt them. This ransomware is particularly dangerous because it uses a strong encryption algorithm that makes it very difficult to decrypt your files without the proper decryption key.

How does it work?

This ransomware is believed to be distributed through email attachments and infected websites. Once your computer is infected with Roga, it will scan your hard drive for certain types of files and encrypt them. Then, ransomware will display a ransom note on your screen that instructs you on how to pay the ransom and decrypt your files.

Encryption algorithm

Roga uses the AES encryption algorithm, which is a strong encryption algorithm that makes it very difficult to decrypt your files without the proper decryption key.

Types of files

Roga will encrypt most types of files, including documents, images, videos, and more.

Extension

It will add the .Roga extension to the encrypted files.

Ransom amount

The ransom amount demanded by Roga Ransomware can vary depending on the number of files encrypted and the size of the files. However, the average ransom amount is around $500.

Payment method

Roga Ransomware demands that you pay the ransom using Bitcoin. This is because Bitcoin is a decentralized currency that cannot be traced back to a specific person or organization.

Paying the ransom

There is no guarantee that Roga Ransomware will decrypt your files even if you do pay. Additionally, by paying the ransom, you are supporting the criminals behind Roga Ransomware and encouraging them to continue their activities.

History

Roga Ransomware was first discovered in May 2017. Security researcher Michael Gillespie discovered it. Roga is believed to be a variant of Crysis Ransomware.

The biggest Roga Ransomware attack

Roga Ransomware was used in a major attack against the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) in November 2017. Roga Ransomware encrypted over 2,000 computers and servers at the SFMTA, causing major disruptions to the agency’s operations. The SFMTA did not pay the ransom and was eventually able to restore its systems from backups.

Protection

To protect yourself from ransomware, you should always keep a backup of your files. This way, if someone ever infected your computer with ransomware, you will not have to worry about losing your files. Additionally, you should install a reliable anti-virus program and make sure that it is always up-to-date. Finally, you should be careful when opening email attachments and only visit websites that you trust.

What should I do if I’m infected?

If attackers infected your computer with Roga, you should try to restore your files from a backup. If you do not have a backup, you can try using a ransomware decryption tool. However, there is no guarantee that this will work. Finally, you should scan your computer with a reliable anti-virus program to remove the ransomware and any other malicious files.
