    Default Ransomware on Steroids: Cryptowall 2.0

    Ransomware holds a userís data hostage. The latest ransomware variants encrypt the userís data, thus making it unusable until a ransom is paid to retrieve the decryption key. The latest Cryptowall 2.0, utilizes TOR to obfuscate the command and control channel. The dropper utilizes multiple exploits to gain initial access and incorporates anti-vm and anti-emulation checks to hamper identification via sandboxes. The dropper and downloaded Cryptowall binary actually incorporate multiple levels of encryption. One of the most interesting aspects of this malware sample, however, is its capability to run 64 bit code directly from its 32 bit dropper. Under the Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit (WOW64) environment, it is indeed able to switch the processor execution context from 32 bit to 64 bit.

    If you are in the IT industry, you should really read this article. The 1st one Ransomware on Steriods is the real one. The 2nd is based on the 1st. Some seriously messed up stuff. Those hackers are freaking brilliant. I cant stand what they do to people but I can respect the level of skill and insight to create something so sinister and intelligent. Just wow. Watch your back folks and dont go clicking on stuff in emails.

    And this is only the dawn of the internet, just think about it, in a year or so they will be checking out your house through your webcam to see if you have any stuff to steal.
