To be honest, our research has confirmed yet no specific distribution method. But we can tell you how it is possible that this threat enters your system. 1st, the cybercriminals in general use spamming campaigns as a relatively simple and effective way to infect unsuspecting users. A such spam E-mail for you seems quite normal to look; also she could give you the feeling that you must open it immediately, together with its annex. However, they should know that the attached file is actually a malicious executable file, even if it is disguised as a picture, video, or text document. It is easy to be tricked, he seems by any authority or by a well-known company to come from such a spam. Furthermore, the subject seems a “magical power” of your curiosity to have and you wanted to see the content immediately.
Once you open this email however, download its appendix and run it, you can no longer delete the Erebus 2017 Ransomware without dark consequences. It is true even for the most of the Ransomware infections, because they encrypt your files very quickly if you use the built-in Windows algorithms such as AES-256 and RSA-2048. Therefore, you must be careful every time when you go through your emails and think twice before you click on it. We do not recommend you to open questionable E-Mails at all, let alone look at their attachments.
Another possible way of this dangerous threat to get into your system via exploit kits (E.g. fishing). This is a very unfortunate way to infect your system with such a dangerous threat, because you could easily avoid them by regularly updating your browser and driver (Java and Flash). Exploit kits use outdated software errors that allow criminals to acquire such infections as the Erebus 2017 Ransomware in your system, without you knowing it. It is enough to be redirected, on a malicious site full exploit kits and as soon as the page loads, malicious scripts are triggered and placed in the background. No matter how this infection has found its way into your system, we believe that you should remove the Erebus 2017 Ransomware at the moment, if you discover.
This Ransomware is attempting to bypass the UAC (user account control) your Windows security feature, which discourages the user from accidentally to change system settings operating system. This infection creates a directory key, “HKCU\Software\Classes\mscfile\shell\open\command\%UserProfile%\[random].exe”, which ensures that these Ransomware instead and with the same privileges as the application starts Event Viewer, i.e. it bypasses the user account control. This attack is targeted to your document -, audio -, image -, and other program files with these extensions: .arw, .accdb,. bay, .cdr,. .cer, .crt, .crw, .dbf, .dcr,. who, .dng, .doc, .docm, .docx, .dwg, .dxf, .dxg, .eps, .erf, .indd, .jpe, .jpg, .kdc, .mdb, .mdf, .mef, .mrw,. nef,. North Rhine-Westphalia, .odb, .odp, and .odm. .ODS, .odt,. orf, .pdd, .pef, .pem, .pfx, .png, .ppt, .pptm, .pptx, .psd, .pst , .ptx,. raf, .raw, .rtf, .rwl, .srf, .srw, .txt, .wpd, .wps, .xlk, .xls, .xlsb, .xlsx and. xlsm.
Affect the file extension of the files is changed by using the method of Red-23 (“13 places rotate”), which is a simple letter substitution. Once this done, informed this Ransomware in a small message box about the encryption and it should review “README.html” file saved on your desktop. When you click OK, a more detailed ransom note appears on your screen. This tells you that you should connect via the TUR-browser with erebus5743lnq6db.onion, when clicking on the button “Recover my files” (“my files”) does not work.
This malicious website, you will find that you will transfer 0.11 Bitcoins (130 USD), which can be dependent on the number of encrypted files. You have 96 hours for the transfer. Since this insidious program deletes the Windows volume shadow copies of your files, it is impossible to restore it without the unique decryption key. This fact should not power but in a corner, to pay the ransom. I hope you’re a security-conscious user who already has learned another of the many and save regularly important files on an external hard drive. If you have such a backup copy, you can transfer easily back your clean files, after you have removed the Erebus 2017 Ransomware from your system. We do not recommend that you pay only 1 cent these crooks, but that’s in turn solely your decision.
