This article covers SerbRansom, a new ransomware that is currently active. SerbRansom is file-encrypting ransomware that was first spotted in the wild on May 15th, 2019. SerbRansom Ransomware is written in the C++ programming language.

How does it work?

SerbRansom uses two different types of encryption methods: AES-256 and RSA-2048. AES-256 is a symmetric key cipher that is used to encrypt files. This means that the same key is used to encrypt and decrypt files. SerbRansom Ransomware developers generate a unique AES-256 key for each victim and then use this key to encrypt their files. RSA-2048 is an asymmetric key cipher that uses two different keys, one for encryption and one for decryption. The SerbRansom Ransomware developers generate a unique RSA-2048 key pair for each victim and use the public key to encrypt files. The private key is needed to decrypt the encrypted files.

 

This ransomware will append the “.serb” or “.rsa” extension to encrypted files, depending on which encryption method was used. SerbRansom Ransomware will also drop a ransom note named “!Recovery_For_Your_Files!.txt” that contains instructions on how to contact the SerbRansom Ransomware developers and make a payment to get your files decrypted.

 

SerbRansom Ransomware is currently being distributed through phishing emails that contain malicious attachments. When this attachment is opened, it will download and install SerbRansom Ransomware on the victim’s computer. SerbRansom Ransomware will then scan the victim’s computer for files to encrypt. SerbRansom Ransomware will target a variety of file types, including images, videos, documents, and more.

How to protect yourself from SerbRansom Ransomware?

SerbRansom is a serious threat that can result in the loss of important files. It is important to take precautions to protect yourself from this and other ransomware threats. First, you should always keep a backup of your important files in a safe location. This will ensure that you have a copy of your files even if they are encrypted by SerbRansom Ransomware. Secondly, you should be cautious when opening email attachments from unknown senders. If you are unsure about an attachment, you can scan it with a virus scanner before opening it. Finally, you should consider installing an anti-malware program that can detect and remove this ransomware and other threats from your computer. Also, make sure that you keep this program up-to-date to ensure that it can protect you from the latest threats.

Ransom demand

The amount of ransom demand varies depending on how SerbRansom Ransomware encrypts files. In some cases, SerbRansom Ransomware will encrypt files using the AES-256 cipher. So, in these cases, the ransomware will demand a ransom of 0.5 Bitcoin, which is currently equivalent to $1900.

SerbRansom Ransomware developers have also been known to use the RSA-2048 cipher to encrypt files. And in these cases, SerbRansom demand a ransom of 1 Bitcoin, which is currently equivalent to USD 3800. SerbRansom Ransomware developers have also been known to target businesses with higher ransom demands.

What should you do?

If SerbRansom Ransomware has infected your computer, we recommend that you do not pay the ransom and instead use a reliable anti-malware program to remove SerbRansom from your system. Paying the ransom does not guarantee that you will get your files back, and you may also be putting yourself at risk of identity theft or financial fraud.

Is there a public decryption tool?

There is currently no public decryption tool available for SerbRansom Ransomware.
