This particular malware distributes itself through malicious websites, which – when visited – downloads several different malware kits onto the host computer. All of these files are either infected directly or contain a payload designed to deliver HDDCryptor. It is also worth noting the payload uses multiple open source tools, including DiskCryptor and Network Password Recovery.
