All about WonderCrypter Ransomware

WonderCrypter is a ransomware that encrypts the user’s files and demands a ransom for the decryption key. It uses an AES-256 encryption algorithm.

 

This ransomware was first seen in the wild on February 8th, 2016. Security researcher Wonder Woman discovered it.

 

The ransomware is distributed through exploit kits, such as Nuclear Exploit Kit and Angler Exploit Kit. WonderCrypter checks if it is running in a virtual machine or sandbox environment. If the malware detects that it is running on a virtual machine, it will not encrypt the user’s files.

 

It appends the “.wonder” extension to the encrypted files. For example, “sample.jpg” would be renamed to “sample.jpg.wonder”. WonderCrypter drops a ransom note named “!Recovery_file!.html” in every folder that contains encrypted files.

 

This ransomware demands a ransom of 0.5 Bitcoin. But the price doubles if the ransom is not paid within 72 hours.

 

WonderCrypter uses the Tor network to communicate with its command-and-control server. It deletes the volume shadow copies from the user’s computer to prevent the user from restoring their files using this method.

Prevention

You can prevent WonderCrypter by using good cybersecurity practices and reliable anti-malware software. Cybersecurity practices include not clicking on links or attachments in email messages from unknown senders, not downloading files from untrustworthy websites, and updating the operating system and other software regularly.

This ransomware uses social engineering to trick users into clicking on malicious links or attachments. So, users should be aware of these tactics and not fall for them.

Also, WonderCrypter Ransomware can be prevented by having a robust backup strategy. Backups should be stored offline and not connected to the computer all the time.

Detection and Removal

WonderCrypter can be detected and removed by using a reliable anti-malware program. Anti-malware programs scan for ransomware and remove it from the infected computer.

 

You should not try to remove WonderCrypter yourself because you could end up damaging your files or infecting your computer even more.

 

Some variants of WonderCrypter Ransomware can be decrypted without paying the ransom. So, you should check if a decryptor is available before you pay the ransom.

Is there a public decryption tool?

At the time of writing this, there is no public decryption tool available for WonderCrypter Ransomware.

 

If you will try to find a decryption tool by yourself, you should be very careful because there are a lot of fake decryption tools out there. These fake tools can infect your computer with malware or damage your files.

 

You should only download decryption tools from trusted sources, such as the websites of well-known security companies.

How can you restore files?

If you have backups, you can restore your files from them.

 

If you don’t have backups, you can try to use data recovery software. But there is no guarantee that data recovery software will work because, as we said, WonderCrypter deletes the volume shadow copies from the user’s computer.

 

Anyway, try using SalvageData data recovery software. This software has a free trial, so you can try it before you buy it.
