Revoyem Ransomware Sinks to New Low
A strain of the Revoyem ransomware, also known as DirtyDecrypt, is aggressively spreading beyond Germany and Great Britain, the first two countries in which it was spotted back in March. A researcher who goes by the handle Kafeine reports on his Malware Don’t Need Coffee website that Revoyem is being aggressively distributed internationally.
Victims are generally infected on pornographic websites with the malware, Kafeine reports in a blogpost. It then takes a turn for the worst, redirecting victims via a TrafficHolder malvertising ad to page hosting child pornography which drops the Styx exploit kit on the victim’s machine and the DirtyDecrypt ransomware locking the victim’s computer and informing the victim they’ve just viewed illegal content.
