12 Sep Lukitus Ransomware
Lukitus is an updated variant of a ransomware-type virus called Locky. During encryption the virus renames encrypted files using the “32_random_letters_and_digits].lukitus” pattern.
The desktop wallpaper and HTML file contain identical ransom-demand messages stating that files are encrypted and can only be restored via a specific decryption program using a unique key. Unfortunately, this information is accurate. As mentioned above, Lukitus uses RSA and AES cryptographies and, therefore, unique decryption keys are generated for each victim
