What is One?
One is a fresh ransomware-type virus which originated in Portugal. After infiltration, this malware encrypts your files and appends “.one” extension to their filenames. For example, myfamily.jpg turns into myfamily.jpg.one. The encryption process takes a little time so the ordinary user may not even notice anything suspicious. AES-256 cryptography algorithm is used for this purpose making your files almost unavailable since you can’t open or edit them. Next, One Ransomware places text file (Recupere seus arquivos aqui.txt) containing ransom message on the system. And though, the message is written in Portugal, it’s distributed all around the world.
This is what One ransom note Recupere seus arquivos aqui.txt contains:
