Dou you know what Rijndael Ransomware is?

Rijndael Ransomware is a mysterious infection that is likely to be the newer version of the already obsolete Dnransomware (also known as Dnransomware Steps). At the time of research, there was very little information about this infection, but our research team has managed to figure out how this threat works. If you have not encountered it yet, you should read this report to learn how to protect yourself against it. If this malicious infection has invaded your operating system and encrypted your personal files, you can find important information as well. Keep in mind that although the malicious ransomware demands a ransom fee, it is possible that you could unlock your operating system (if it was locked) and decrypt your files for free.

At the moment, it seems that Rijndael Ransomware might be spreading in two different ways. Just like Kirk Ransomware, Zinocrypt Ransomware, and most other infections of this kind, the ransomware could conceal its .exe file within misleading spam emails. It was also found that the infection could imitate a BitCoin Miner. In any case, the threat slithers in silently, and then it proceeds to encrypt files. It is not yet known which encryption method this malware employs, but it was found that the obnoxious “.fucked” extension could be attached to the encrypted files. It is most likely that you will find photos, documents, and other types of personal files encrypted by this malicious infection. Besides that, Rijndael Ransomware could also lock your screen. If that happens, you should try launching the Task Manager and terminating malicious processes. Do not rush to do that right away as we discuss the process later in the report.

Have you been introduced to the ransom note? Rijndael Ransomware displays a pop-up window (it might be used to lock the screen) and informs you that you need to pay a ransom of 0.5 Bitcoins to have your files decrypted. Since there is no more information regarding the payment, you are introduced to an email address, Riptours01@gmail.com. You are expected to email it to receive additional instructions. If you fulfill all of the demands, you should receive a decryption code, but we cannot guarantee that you would. The ransom note displays a dialog box with the “Decrypt” button next to it, and this is where you need to insert the code. You can try entering 83KYG9NW-3K39V-2T3HJ-93F3Q-GT, but bear in mind that this might only unlock your computer. If your files are not decrypted after you enter this code, you should look into free file decryptors. The word on the street is one that could help you exists.
