Today’s widely reported WannaCry ransomware attack is widespread, growing and has already yielded ~USD$12k in profits according to a Bitcoin Who’s Who analysis of the BTC addresses involved. On May 12 the 3 bitcoin addresses known to be receiving extortion payments show receipt of 6.49372428 BTC in 39 separate transactions with ransom varying between .15 to .30 BTC each. None of the balances have been moved to new bitcoin addresses since receipt.

If these guys get their 1000's of BTC they are demanding from the NHS they will likely be the ones selling it to them, then receiving it back to their wallets before reselling it on the market. IDK.

Sketchy. The ETF is 100% sure to be disapproved.

It is showing up all over my news feeds as you pay $300 in Bitcoin or your data will be erased then woops your files have been encrypted 3 days to pay or else your price will be doubled.

It really sucks to be in the UK their hospital servers were broken into because they don't put much into security or updating but Bitcoin malware has been a known vector for a while the ones that bought the auction deal from the shadowbrokers knew how to maximize their return the problem is that the servers are not updated else this would not be as bad. This was an old FBI tool only hits non-patched pcs wannacry indeed.

why? only because a bunch of incompetent don't know what a malicious email is and click on "ifyouclickhereistealyourbitcoin.com", if they are base their decision on this

they don't have a clue what bitcoin is about, which is not about criminal activity and don't deserve to approve it

anyway these balance are very low amount, i doubt someone like the ETF care about this thing

Oh yes, I am sure that the regulators don't care if the 'currency' looking to get an ETF was just used in the largest ransomware exploit of all time.

I'm sure the fact that England's NHS was put on lock-down preventing patients from receiving care will not factor into their decision whatsoever.

Na this virus was advanced it detected vulnerable computers in a network and automatically infected them without a user needing to do anything.
Basically once inside a system it spreads like a bloom.

But true enough it takes one incompetent to compromise the network, sucks to be SYSADMIN that said it was targeted.

"On one occasion a computer in the United States was compromised but, following infection, an uninstaller was launched within hours, which may indicate this victim was infected unintentionally," Symantec noted.
The malware contained logs documenting changes that closely mirrored such records in Vault7 malware, the firm claimed.

---

Unlike many other malicious programs, this one has the ability to move around a network by itself. Most others rely on humans to spread by tricking them into clicking on an attachment harbouring the attack code.

By contrast, once WannaCry is inside an organisation it will hunt down vulnerable machines and infect them too. This perhaps explains why its impact is so public - because large numbers of machines at each victim organisation are being compromised.

How does the ransomware actually work?

I cannot see how the payment could be connected back to the person who paid it, as all payments seem to go to just 3 Bitcoin addresses.  Also $300 means different amounts of Bitcoin would be sent by different people.  

It looks as if you pay up you have done your money.  There appears to be no way the ransom people can connect a PC to the payment.

That ETF portion doesn't even make sense. Why would the ETF not be approved because there are some people who clicked on something they shouldn't have or got everyone's machines infected by bringing something in? Considering that they were only asking for $300 it shows it wasn't a targeted attack and was a generic ransomware that infected their systems.

It was already going to be turned down because bitcoins can't be regulated. It wasn't going to be approved and this doesn't change that decision in any way.

Why no one is crying how much fiat money is stolen everyday from banks using the same old phishing method:
Fake banking websites designed by phishers, links are usually distributed via email spam as well.

Really it's shocking that they've only received such a tiny amount of Bitcoin in ransom payments.  I would expect it to be upwards of 50 Bitcoin by now if they've really infected the amount of computers people seem to be saying they are, especially since it would cost a lot more than $300 in Bitcoin to replace most of those computers and people need their sensitive files.

As for networks like the NHS, even if a file is very suspicious there are thousands of people who could click on it.  When they're as vulnerable as they were, someone was bound to get them a virus eventually.

Today’s widely reported WannaCry ransomware attack is widespread, growing and has already yielded ~USD$12k in profits according to a Bitcoin Who’s Who analysis of the BTC addresses involved. On May 12 the 3 bitcoin addresses known to be receiving extortion payments show receipt of 6.49372428 BTC in 39 separate transactions with ransom varying between .15 to .30 BTC each. None of the balances have been moved to new bitcoin addresses since receipt.

The WannaCry Ransomware Attack is up to 14.08007493 BTC on 92 payments as of 11:30am ET on May 13. Balance has more than doubled in 12 hours to ~USD$25k. Coincidence BTC hits all-time high while people are scrambling to pay this ransom?

No. The NSA is not the guilty party here. Microsoft is. Security is not the primary design goal of Windows. DRM and the protection of "intellectual property", followed by up-selling are the primary design goals of Windows.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card

Multiple ransom payments being received on the same address? How does the malware know which systems to decrypt and which not to?
After sending the ransom payment, are you supposed to send a mail?

They say it's the largest ransomware attack ever made, NSA is guilty of this because hackers apparently used their tools to spread it. https://intel.malwaretech.com/botnet/wcrypt

No. The NSA is not the guilty party here. Microsoft is. Security is not the primary design goal of Windows. DRM and the protection of "intellectual property", followed by up-selling are the primary design goals of Windows.

Was Windows XP the only OS affected? Or the newest ones too?

The newer ones are also affected. The difference is that Windows XP was not patched. Windows XP by the way still accounts for over 7% of market share This also illustrates a significant additional failing in the proprietary software business model. When the manufacturer chooses to no longer support the proprietary software nobody else can. This creates an additional breeding ground for malware infarctions.

Most of the affected systems had Windows XP (perhaps more than 90%). It was quite irresponsible from the part of Microsoft to end their support for Windows XP. The severity of this particular attack could have been significantly reduced if there was support.

Sure and kill networking with other Windows computers? Also the malware is also spread via email.

the problem is not WinXP ... but the WinCE deployed on industrial platform.  Grin




that's why most developpers use Raspberry Pi 3 (or VGA output) to develop display and industrial process now (since 3 years).

but, it's new.
need 10 years to adapt old industry.

There is already a thread which is constantly monitoring total bitcoin collected through this ransomeware here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1916199.0

I have heard that atleast Windows 10 is safe from this, am i right? (source : http://thehackernews.com/2017/05/wannacry-ransomware-unlock.html)

some months back one of my friend faced the same problem in his laptop that all his files are not opening and when he came to me i saw the same message of asking the ransomware to open the files , and he told me that he used the tor browser and downloaded some files and this problem faced it, he was lucky that he had his backup of his laptop so immediately we deleted the partition and rebuild new one and installed fresh copy of win 8 and now he is happy and not installing or downloading any unwanted files

Microsoft released patch on March 13, 2017 to fix this on all supported OS versions!

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx

This means, people who pay ransom are noobs and:

a) never did a backup. Just one image of C: drive plus rar/zip whatever, of data drives, per MONTH would have been needed (at 20% of the cost, for a nice Acronis or Ghost imaging tool)

and

b) badly neglected Windows updates or, even worse, use unsupported old Windows version

I look at it as a penalty for stupidity.... Wink

WORST THING IT MAKES BTC LOOK BAD!!! Angry

I agree, Win XP was working nicely and they should provide support, at least for critical fixes!

I read that today, it’s pretty interesting to see that people are willing to try to patch the software even after they get hit by the ransomware. I am pretty sure that once those people that get the ransomware installed into their computer the system is pretty much corrupted. My suggestion would be just get a new computer instead of trying to buy out a virus lol.

Paying a hacker or a software has no real point to it, it’s all just credibility.

The data is gone unless on pays the ransom and gets the decryption key.  Also network drives that the infected Microsoft Windows computer has write access to are also vulnerable. The best solution is to avoid the real cause of the problem in the first place by using GNU/Linux instead of Microsoft Windows. It is also important to ensure that the Microsoft Windows computers do not have write access to  Samba shares on the GNU/linux computers or servers.

Looks like 6,5+ BTC buying on market wasn't making any difference on price.
News however were talking all day long about BTC and outcome will be neutral IMO.

Got that trash on my PC yesterday. I just laughed, did a full format and a quick reinstall of Windows. I strive to keep my PC as empty and free of important stuff as possible, and this finally paid off! I gotta say I'm kinda proud. Shame about my collection of porn though Sad

Microsoft released patch on March 13, 2017 to fix this on all supported OS versions!

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx

This means, people who pay ransom are noobs and:

a) never did a backup. Just one image of C: drive plus rar/zip whatever, of data drives, per MONTH would have been needed (at 20% of the cost, for a nice Acronis or Ghost imaging tool)

and

b) badly neglected Windows updates or, even worse, use unsupported old Windows version

I look at it as a penalty for stupidity.... Wink

WORST THING IT MAKES BTC LOOK BAD!!! Angry

The joke is that they can pay so much for doctors in the healthcare system but not to secure their IT infrastructure.
A good IT person has a very important role in the hospital system it's a playground where they can mod efficiency XD.

Would have tried a linux boot just to see what porn was encrypted out of curiosity ha-ha

Most of the affected systems had Windows XP (perhaps more than 90%). It was quite irresponsible from the part of Microsoft to end their support for Windows XP. The severity of this particular attack could have been significantly reduced if there was support.

I agree, Win XP was working nicely and they should provide support, at least for critical fixes!

I'm glad that it forced them to do an XP patch though

https://askubuntu.com/questions/914623/microsofts-wanna-cry-ransomware-possible-impact-on-linux-users

May 13th, 2017 Update 2 Today Microsoft took the extraordinary step of releasing a patch for Windows XP which has been off of support for 3 years.

No word if wine is doing anything about a security update. It was reported in a comment below that Linux can be infected too when users run wine.

An "accidental hero" registered a domain name that acted as a kill-switch to the ransomware. I presume the non-existant domain was used by the hackers on their private intranet so they didn't infect themselves. Next time they will be smarter so don't rely on this current kill-switch. Installing the Microsoft patch, which prevents exploiting a vulnerability in the SMBv1 protocol, is the best method.

make mmoney is not very hard lol. Spend 10 years learning about computer and then make a good malware to obtain money and Bitcoin. WEll, I have to protect myself in this case. Everyone please buy window 10 or your computer will be totally elimated.
That's the instant way also risky, don't you think that the police will always be trying to find the criminals? Even if he could obtain that damned amount of bitcoin, his life is not peaceful anymore.
And about windows 10, after Microsoft giving a free license to their users a few months ago, I really confused about why people still weren't updating their OS.

In my country, two big hospitals have this virus, it's very disturbing. There is a suggestion that tomorrow does not directly turn on the PC, this is a recommendation from the government. The positive impact is that some people are curious about the BTC, but the negative impact of BTC impresses the currency used for crime. Hopefully, does not endanger the current BTC price.

If these guys get their 1000's of BTC they are demanding from the NHS they will likely be the ones selling it to them, then receiving it back to their wallets before reselling it on the market. IDK.

Sketchy. The ETF is 100% sure to be disapproved.
That ETF portion doesn't even make sense. Why would the ETF not be approved because there are some people who clicked on something they shouldn't have or got everyone's machines infected by bringing something in? Considering that they were only asking for $300 it shows it wasn't a targeted attack and was a generic ransomware that infected their systems.

The SEC was worried about the pricing of the ETF - it would have been based on the price on the many exchanges, and those exchanges were unregulated.

Now throw into the mix that the price might be manipulated upwards by ransonware attacks (where people are forced to buy bitcoin). Yes, some ransomware demands cash, but that cash is such a small proportion of all the dollars in circulation, it has no effect on the USD/EUR level. But there are so few bitcoins, and it has such a low market price that a small amount of buying due to ransomware can move the price.

So they're going to refuse on the grounds that the price can be manipulated by criminals.

This claim just won't hold water

First, a few bitcoins (which is what the hackers got so far) won't affect the price in any meaningful way, and if you doubt that, you may want to visit Bitfinex and see for yourself. Further, you implicitly assume that the hackers are never going to cash out, which is a very, very far-stretched assumption. As to me, they are going to cash out as fast as possible since it just makes no sense to keep the bitcoins which are of no particular use to them. Therefore, these bitcoins aren't going to change anything in respect to Bitcoin prices

Isn't the deadline for payments on this Friday? There aren't too many payments at the moment but this thread will be very interesting to track as the week goes on.

Surely payments will have to be madr? The NHS can't let patients medical records be deleted surely?

This virus focuses on the server because most are still using windows 8 and below version, ordinary workers are accustomed to receive email every day so do not accidentally get this virus. It's disastrous and hard to decrypt manually if it's already infected. Hopefully the antivirus do their best in the next few days.

Whatever happened is not good for the bitcoin community. Bitcoin will now be seen as a crime for most of the enforcement agencies and if they start cracking down the innocent bitcoin users, then we are doomed. Most of us try to earn bitcoin legally and not by any other means here. But these hackers have made a bad name for bitcoin now.

The attack is widespread and almost 72 countries effected. This way the respective government will think twice before legalizing bitcoin now. Whatever the good reputation earned by bitcoin, is all gone now and more governments will now be aware about bitcoin circulation in their country. Not good for us!

Yeah it such a shame that people need to do bad things to get bitcoin, it sure going to affect bitcoin and there is a possibility that the government is going to banned bitcoin and this incident give a negative reputation to bitcoin, this is one of the reason people rejected to used bitcoin, it is going to affected all of the user that earned bitcoin legally

Bitcoin has been used in many criminal activities long time ago before this issue happened like drug dealers,terorism etc and people already know it that it's clearly not bitcoin's fault but the person it's just like cash. On the other hand the price is still stable as you can see the price at this point it's about 1750 dollars it means there is no panic selling are caused by WannaCry ransomware attack. Besides that bitcoin become more popullar even though in bad way but i trully believe people can see advantage of the bitcoin, those who didn't know it before finally knew it . Well seems like they the hackers giving free promotion for the bitcoin itself. For your information Australia will start accepting bitcoin as a currency from July 1st.

Got that trash on my PC yesterday. I just laughed, did a full format and a quick reinstall of Windows. I strive to keep my PC as empty and free of important stuff as possible, and this finally paid off! I gotta say I'm kinda proud. Shame about my collection of porn though Sad

how did you get it? what you installed recently? so we can watch out better against this shit

In my country, two big hospitals have this virus, it's very disturbing. There is a suggestion that tomorrow does not directly turn on the PC, this is a recommendation from the government.

It's disastrous and hard to decrypt manually if it's already infected. Hopefully the antivirus do their best in the next few days.

still not an excuse for those windows 8 user to not have a backup for sensible data like they have at their job, the first to do when you have something important is always a backup

they still want it more and might not give the decryption key even you have paid for it, beware. because all of the ransomware's address to pay the fund is different, you are hard to make a fake transaction to it and get back the key, such as double spending. i know that bitcoin could be abused by criminal, but once this incident is addressed, the policy towards bitcoin is revised.

out of ability to use the signature, i want a new ban strike policy that will fade the strike after 90~120 days of the ban and not to be traced back, like google | email me for anything urgent, message will not be instantly responded
i am not really active for some reason

This claim just won't hold water

First, a few bitcoins (which is what the hackers got so far) won't affect the price in any meaningful way, and if you doubt that, you may want to visit Bitfinex and see for yourself. Further, you implicitly assume that the hackers are never going to cash out, which is a very, very far-stretched assumption. As to me, they are going to cash out as fast as possible since it just makes no sense to keep the bitcoins which are of no particular use to them. Therefore, these bitcoins aren't going to change anything in respect to Bitcoin prices

It's not a reasonable claim at all I totally agree. Even the last time some "hacker" stole funds either BTC or ETH the two most recent ones I remember, price dropped for what, maybe a day or a few days? And that was panic sell. If all the fiat in the world were in a few big banks and people suddenly panicked, same concerns for fiat.

Like when suddenly a whole lot of investors went out of Asia in 1997, all the Asian currencies dropped. But they recovered.

So not a good claim, because it's not true and if it's true, then same issue for fiat.

Whatever happened is not good for the bitcoin community. Bitcoin will now be seen as a crime for most of the enforcement agencies and if they start cracking down the innocent bitcoin users, then we are doomed. Most of us try to earn bitcoin legally and not by any other means here. But these hackers have made a bad name for bitcoin now.

The attack is widespread and almost 72 countries effected. This way the respective government will think twice before legalizing bitcoin now. Whatever the good reputation earned by bitcoin, is all gone now and more governments will now be aware about bitcoin circulation in their country. Not good for us!
Let us try not to over react on this issue. Bitcoin is still in a very good standing and would remain to do so because there's just so much more good things happening compared to this latest news on hacking. Kidnap for ransom groups demanding for huge amounts of dollars don't affect the dollar value, so why should this have so much effect on bitcoin? Even if they are able to get over 10 bitcoin, that is not a big amount compared to what other criminal activities are being committed using fiat.

Pffff why is that. Bitcoin is money, it's like blaming USD/GBP because drugs exist.

It is quite worrying that an organisation like the NHS has not paid attention especially when only recently it was all over the place that a cache of malicious software and numerous viruses were stolen from the US, 

I just hope the banks and other major institutions are paying attention now.  I don't think this will have a negative impact on bitcoin, I am surprised that the mention of bitcoin has o ly been a sidenote in the articles I have read, I thought it would be more of a headline as it usually is.

Don't shoot Bitcoin!

If they are going to crack down on Bitcoin users, why don't they first crack down on US dollar or Euro users since the dollar and euro are used a lot greater for a lot wider range of crimes (especially as cash)? It kinda looks it is more about you willing to see Bitcoin as a crime, not so much about law-enforcement agencies. The very fact that hackers chose Bitcoin proves its validity and usefulness in real life

Even though the hacking part isn't good but this is surely making more people of bitcoin as many people who got hacked are not aware of bitcoin and i also saw a local newspaper posting an article about this and in that article they are explaining it's readers what bitcoin is and why the hackers are asking payments through bitcoin.

Maybe people will finally research a little bit about OS other than microsoft bluescreen.

There is always something good out of the bad sittuation. People need to make more care into their bitcoin wallett security, so that there will be less stories that someone lost their coins.

There is a need of a linux bitcoin users not affected memes Tongue.

I am wondering if this ransomware virus is going to hit a lot of ordinary people or did they mainly attack organizations, schools and government offices? How did this virus come about and what do you download to get this ugly sh*t? I hope none of us here contract it.

Bitcoin has been used in many criminal activities long time ago before this issue happened like drug dealers,terorism etc and people already know it that it's clearly not bitcoin's fault but the person it's just like cash. On the other hand the price is still stable as you can see the price at this point it's about 1750 dollars it means there is no panic selling are caused by WannaCry ransomware attack. Besides that bitcoin become more popullar even though in bad way but i trully believe people can see advantage of the bitcoin, those who didn't know it before finally knew it . Well seems like they the hackers giving free promotion for the bitcoin itself. For your information Australia will start accepting bitcoin as a currency from July 1st.

I agree with avikz, I think it gives "bitcoin" a bad name especially with
people who dont understand how it works. When I heard that the ransom
was t be paid in Bitcoin I thought "FFS this is not good" especially at a time
where it is getting good press in Japan and Australia.

I think bitcoin could be seen as something underground and linked to criminal
activity, i know, i know - just like FIAT

I wonder why the ransom was not requested in DASH?

Basically, because no one gives a fuck about Dash

I'm absolutely sure that the total majority of the MakeMeCry victims have never heard about Dash before (and won't hear thereafter), so it might not make a lot of sense to request payments in this coin. On the other hand, Bitcoin is pretty well known, and it is as easy to buy it as well as transact with it (e.g. via web wallets). Apart from that, the hackers can't be 100% sure that with Dash its blockchain (or what they use for the blockchain) wouldn't be rolled back once the victims are done with payments. This is an unlikely event with Bitcoin

For such a widespread attack I'm really surprised they earned so little. When the news first hit I thought they were going to earn in the millions of dollars.

Obviously its still a lot of money but it could have been way worse, and hopefully the relatively low rewards for such sophisticated attacks will limit the amount of people doing this again in future.

Hmm I would have assumed that their respective IT departments or Technicians would
be making the payments and they would certainly know about Crypto.

I'm not sure I understand the "rolled Back" bit" sorry  Huh

From what I am hearing on various news bulletins on radio here
is that now they know this form of virus attack works it may become more frequent.

This kind of hacking need to be stop as soon as possible because if this kind of hack will not be stopped then it will damage more computers and invade more countries and also it will be a huge impact for our bitcoin because it can get bitcoins then they can dump it to the market which can cause a loss for us.

What does this have to do with the current situation? It has nothing to do with Bitcoin wallet security, it's about randsomware...
Most victims of this attack haven't even heard about Bitcoin. 

Besides, some linux distro's were also mentioned in the leaked NSA/CIA exploits, do you shouldn't think that Linux users are completely immune.

Sketchy. The ETF is 100% sure to be disapproved.

why? only because a bunch of incompetent don't know what a malicious email is and click on "ifyouclickhereistealyourbitcoin.com", if they are base their decision on this

they don't have a clue what bitcoin is about, which is not about criminal activity and don't deserve to approve it

anyway these balance are very low amount, i doubt someone like the ETF care about this thing
Why no one is crying how much fiat money is stolen everyday from banks using the same old phishing method:
Fake banking websites designed by phishers, links are usually distributed via email spam as well.

https://www.fraudhelpdesk.org/fake-banking-websites-designed-phishers/


Oh, Bitcoin will always be the bad guy in this story. You have a highly disruptive technology that threatens the Fiat financial systems of the world.

The villain in this story will never be the people behind these attacks, but rather the method they are using and the targets they used. Is this

not strange timing for them to use Bitcoin as a payment method... when Bitcoin has reached these record high prices.  Huh

I wonder why the ransom was not requested in DASH?

Basically, because no one gives a fuck about Dash

I'm absolutely sure that the total majority of the MakeMeCry victims have never heard about Dash before (and won't hear thereafter), so it might not make a lot of sense to request payments in this coin. On the other hand, Bitcoin is pretty well known, and it is as easy to buy it as well as transact with it (e.g. via web wallets). Apart from that, the hackers can't be 100% sure that with Dash its blockchain (or what they use for the blockchain) wouldn't be rolled back once the victims are done with payments. This is an unlikely event with Bitcoin

Hmm I would have assumed that their respective IT departments or Technicians would
be making the payments and they would certainly know about Crypto

They might have heard, and so what?

I also heard about Dash (nothing particularly good, just in case), and what does it change? It would still require me some time to get the hang of how it works (basically, how to transact with it). Regarding rolling back the blockchain, that means going back to a point in the past before some action took place and restarting the blockchain from there. In this case that would mean that the victims didn't pay the ransom and the hackers would be effectively left with nothing (unless they already converted their coins to fiat or other coins, of course). If I remember correctly, something to that tune was done with Dogecoin after a big time hack some time ago. Or was it NXT?

they are the worst ransomware attack and they can only collect a small amount. What a disappointing situation. I expect that they have collected more than $1000000. But from what I have known, only $50000 has been sent to their wallets

This is not about crypto as such, but a rollback would still be a viable option in smaller currencies

These currencies primarily depend on a small, tightly knit group of developers or just one developer, as is often the case (don't know about Dash though). Regarding IT boys, if they allowed such thing to happen in the first place (i.e. let some vicious code encrypt the files which they should have protected), I think they might have issues even with paying the Bitcoin ransom (let alone Dash or some other fancy currency like Monero). So, as to me, the choice of Bitcoin is quite justified even if it is not the most anonymous kid on the block

*********Ransomware**********

By now all of we have heard of the global ransomware attack. It has created a lot of confusions in the mind of computer users. Over 60,000 companies of more than 100 countries have become the victim of this malware. So how this ransomware works and what are the possible solutions......

The term 'RANSOMWARE' itself gives the idea of its nature. It is somehow related to some kind of ransom. Yes, exactly it is. It is a type of malware which gets into your computer and locks down all the files. Afterwards it seeks for money from the user in order to get access to the locked files. The recent ransomwares are smarter than ever. It just not only locks down the files rather it encrypts the files which makes it really impossible to crack open the locked files. As a result the users do not have any other way to regain access to their locked files but to pay the money and get the decryption code.

So how does it get into your computer..Huh

The easiest to get into someone's computer is through attachments of spam emails or by entering into any unknown link. The extension of these files are different than the conventional files. Usually users turn off the file extensions, so they can not know what kind of file they are clicking on. The virus file pretends like a doc file or any other text file. But if you turn on the file extension of your computer you will see that the file extensions are different. As you click on the file all your data start encrypting and eventually asking you for ransom.

In case if you are interested these are the possible real extensions of ransomware files......( .ecc, .ezz, .exx, .zzz, .xyz, .aaa, .abc, .ccc, .vvv, .xxx, .ttt, .micro, .crypto, _crypt, .crinf, .r5a, .XRNT, .XTBL, .crypt, .R16M01D05, .pzdc, .good, .LOL!, .OMG!, .RDM, .RRK, .encryptedRSA, .crjoker, .EnCiPhErEd, .LeChiffre, .keybtc@inbox_com, .0x0, .bleep, .1999, .vault, .HA3, .toxcrypt, .magic, .SUPERCRYPT, .CTBL, .CTB2, .locky or 6-7 length extension consisting of random characters.)

The recent ransomware which is causing mass loss is known as #WannaCry. This asks for opening a javascript file in your email in the format (.js). So it is now recommended not to open any unknown attachments sent through emails.

How to recover a ransomware infected computer........?

Well, for now there is no way to open the encrypted files. As I mentioned earlier you have to pay through bitcoins in order to get the decryption code.

Safety measures :

1. Keep your Operating System up to date.
2. Keep you Anti-Virus up to date.
3. Create back up for the most important files either in a secured hard drive or in a secured cloud storage.
4. Do not open any email attachments from unknown senders.
5. Be careful while opening and downloading from any unknowing third party websites.

Stay safe.......... Smiley

hacking is a term used in the places where hackers find some weakness left by the developers while building the system. As we know windows are the secure network is because they do not allow access to anything related too root. They do access but that needs a lot of complications. But Linux  provides easier access to root commands and hence if someone hacked the root controls he can easily hack your full computer. So I will say running away from a is in not the solution here

I wonder why the ransom was not requested in DASH?

Basically, because no one gives a fuck about Dash

I'm absolutely sure that the total majority of the MakeMeCry victims have never heard about Dash before (and won't hear thereafter), so it might not make a lot of sense to request payments in this coin. On the other hand, Bitcoin is pretty well known, and it is as easy to buy it as well as transact with it (e.g. via web wallets). Apart from that, the hackers can't be 100% sure that with Dash its blockchain (or what they use for the blockchain) wouldn't be rolled back once the victims are done with payments. This is an unlikely event with Bitcoin

Hmm I would have assumed that their respective IT departments or Technicians would
be making the payments and they would certainly know about Crypto

They might have heard, and so what?

I also heard about Dash (nothing particularly good, just in case), and what does it change? It would still require me some time to get the hang of how it works (basically, how to transact with it). Regarding rolling back the blockchain, that means going back to a point in the past before some action took place and restarting the blockchain from there. In this case that would mean that the victims didn't pay the ransom and the hackers would be effectively left with nothing (unless they already converted their coins to fiat or other coins, of course). If I remember correctly, something to that tune was done with Dogecoin after a big time hack some time ago. Or was it NXT?

What i meant was that the people whose computers have been affected may know

Regarding IT boys, if they allowed such thing to happen in the first place (i.e. let some vicious code encrypt the files which they should have protected), I think they might have issues even with paying the Bitcoin ransom (let alone Dash or some other fancy currency like Monero). So, as to me, the choice of Bitcoin is quite justified even if it is not the most anonymous kid on the block

Good points made and taken!, if the systems were protected
and up to date . . . as their job description would suggest the
infection in general would be minimised.

This happens when you use windows system,you get infected by all the crap in the world and end up loosing money for using a paid service,what an irony ,now it is time that people start using linux and other open source OS to safe guard their personal stuffs.

my only sadness is when windows itself is late to telling the other members so they are choose to walk in for some good reason. i think the new admin is know the email password from the old admin. if this is not yet to touch, then you are safe and you don't have to thinking too many, you need to be active again.

It is a case of NSA finding all these vulnerabilities and does not bother or care about the citizens of America nor the whole world by not informing about these vulnerabilities to microsoft and they could not even handle the tools they created to monitor and hack other people,it is a complete mismanagement and they have to be held responsible for this disaster.

hacking is a term used in the places where hackers find some weakness left by the developers while building the system. As we know windows are the secure network is because they do not allow access to anything related too root. They do access but that needs a lot of complications. But Linux  provides easier access to root commands and hence if someone hacked the root controls he can easily hack your full computer. So I will say running away from a is in not the solution here
Lets evaluate how these wanna cry ransomware exploit the system.Hope you are aware that it is a vulnerability in the windows operating systems and it has not affected any other operating systems.You really do not need much complicated methods to get a root access,i am not getting more into that,but the truth of the fact is it is a glitch in the windows operating system that NSA found to exploit and monitor their potential targets and the tools got out of hand and now we are seeing all these attacks.

They really showed why we shouldn't allow them full reign when they get hacked and leak tools.

the issue with hacked tools or tools for hacking? several years ago about the only decent thing people could find were BACKTRACK and some of the individual apps inside of it! but still it was a very select group who could advance! the NSA didnt create... they mashed together ! and certainly if they could have controlled what they had this might not have happened but it did! a leak here and a leak there and the entire suite of apps is off to the dark side!
all summed up if we look objectively at things its not much different then the few mining aps developers of today! new coin ?
new algo?
new app for mining... half of them open source but poorly coded and the other half always late because their friends use it till the diff goes up!

it happened)) now the idea is how to make those coins scatter enough to make  following their track backs insanely hard to find !
time heals all wounds! and the more time goes by and the more advanced the tech gets the easier it will be to simply fall thru the cracks!
we have created this beast by supply and demand! and any script kiddy can hack so really??? who is to blame?

Definitely, just their shit tools could make people suffering. Even though Microsoft had released the update to fix this vulnerability but there's no further announcement that results in many uninformed people and not all people have a damn good internet to always update their windows.
Though, pretty confused about why Microsoft doesn't give a special announcement to hospital or such.

It's all about money and, simply put, microsoft has a lot more to gain from having organization take time to upgrade their systems rather than giving out a notice about the software and having everyone upgrade all at once. Like something to do with either a security money perspective or they may simply not want to do anything like that because it may hurt their brand. Don't ask me though, I'm just speculating.

Microsoft is a big corporation in the world, they have the most advanced technology development platform in computer technology, and it's not good for hackers to make holes in their systems to commit crimes. Although it's not their fault, their reputation has been affected, and they will definitely have new moves to overcome it.

Nah, I think that it's all because of the NSA intervention towards Microsoft. It's all been revealed that NSA that causes this disaster on the internet, believe it or not, that to keep NSA have the privilege watching over so many people's device, this vulnerability need exists. That's actually just my 2 cents though.

Whose reputation is it going to affect?

If that of Microsoft, then how come that it's not their fault? If not theirs, then whose is it? Apart from that, Microsoft has a very long history of security vulnerabilities and successful attacks against every flavor of Windows existing or ever existed out there, so yet another one won't hurt them much. In fact, port 445 used in Windows networking is one of the most vulnerable and hacked ports in history, up to a point where you seriously question whether Microsoft is not deliberately leaving it vulnerable. If not, then we can only imagine how crappy is the rest of the Windows code

One billion flies cannot be wrong

Other than that, it is not the most used OS out there. At least, not any more. Android seems to be the one. But please don't tell that you actually meant desktop OS'es since ransomware would be just happy to infect anything that it could potentially be run on (if that were possible). After all, we are talking about that WannaCry thing, right? Though I don't really think that Android is somehow much better or less crappy overall than any flavor of Windows (if only for the Linux kernel hidden under the hood)
