This is obvious, because all of the text in this Ransomware in Portuguese is, why their distribution limited to in Portuguese speaking countries such as Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola and some other.

We have received information that pretend that the KillerLocker Ransomware uses the AES encryption system with a 256 bit key. AES-256 is a strong encryption algorithm, and this file will create a public encryption key and a private decryption key that is uploaded on the C2 server of this ransomware. To maintain this decryption key and decrypt your valuable files, you would have to pay the currently unknown ransom in Bitcoin. During the encryption of files, the files are provided with the extension “.rip”, and once the encryption is complete, a window appears with the image of a morbid clowns.
This window also has a line in which you should enter the decryption code. Also, the window States that you have 48 hours to pay the ransom. We don’t know what would happen next, but we believe that one can assume that she start the jigsaw Ransomware is similar, to delete the files.
