HTML ransomware encryption process
HTML ransomware is a new kind of well known Dharma ransomware. Usually this type of a virus changes the structure of the definite files (encrypts) in order to make you pay for the restoring (decryption). In the most cases, hackers use spam campaigns in order to spread the virus, but there are other ways too (direct injection, bundles, malicious websites and etc). The encryption itself splits in two processes: searching for the appropriate files and encryption itself. When it’s done, your files are unreadable, as the extensions of them have been changed to .[Backdatacompany@aol.com].HTML.
