$100 malware kit lets anyone build their own CryptoLocker
The CryptoLocker ransomware is one of the most alarming developments in malware we’ve seen in recent years. Things may get much, much worse, however. Someone is selling a DIY malware kit that builds custom CryptoLocker knock-offs for just $100.
Malware kits are nothing new. For years, cybercriminals looking for low-hassle ways to generate quick, illicit revenue streams have leaned on kits like Zeus and SpyEye. This new one — called PowerLocker or Prison Locker — adds a familiar and unwelcome new twist.
Like CryptoLocker, PowerLocker is designed to take an infected system’s files hostage. They’re encrypted using Blowfish and locked with a 2048-bit private RSA key.
