Cccmn Ransomware is a file encrypting malware associated with CrySis family. Like a file encrypting malware, is secretly gets inside the marked PC and locks it to make it inaccessible. It appends a file name “.cccmn” on every file that it can encrypt. Along with .cccmn, victim ID and email ID of this malware developer is also added. For example, the file name ABC.jpg will change to ABC. .id-1E857D00.[firstname.lastname@example.org].cccmn. The file becomes inaccessible and when you try to access it, a ransom note (“FILES ENCRYPTED.TXT”) pop-ups up on the screen. You would realize that the ransom note has replaced the screen wallpaper of the PC.
The ransom text files contain messages asking the victims to pay the ransom money. They ask the victims to contact the cyber-criminals through email. It also threats that if you tried to recover the files, it will get destroyed or corrupted permanently. According to cyber-experts, it is unknown whether it uses symmetric or asymmetric cryptography. In either of the case, you require a unique decryption key for encrypted files access.
The amount of ransom money is not disclosed in the ransom note. Actually, it depends on how fast you contact with the cyber-criminals. Normally, it ranges from $500 to $1500. The money is asked to be paid in crypto currency like Bitcoin, Monero, DASH and so on. In order to the victims trust, it asks to decrypt one of the file for free. However, this the trick and you should never trust cyber-criminals. According to cyber-experts, the original decryption keys are not provided even after making full payment of ransom money. The victim will not receive anything and will lose their money as well as time.
