Enc1 ransomware aimed on english-speakers, but it's already penetrated thousands computers all over the world. It uses AES algorith to encrypt the files.

Virus infected systems in various countries by scam messages with dangerous attachments and using non-secure RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). It brute force the victims computers. Also, hackers use exploits to penetrate the computer, but big software developers promptly correct them. This is the base for impressive success of this type of viruses in last years: an ordinary PC operator, even having a pretty good knowledge of the computer, won't ever restore the files, and will need to pay ransom. The single way to get back files is to find the scammer's site and obtain the encryption keys. Also there's a chance to obtain encryption keys due to flaws in viruse's program code.

There is one thing in common between all kinds of ransomware: it's much easier to dodge it than to cure it. For ransomware this is most relevant, since, unlike normal malicious programs, after uninstalling ransomware from the computer, the fruits of its actions won't disappear anywhere. To defend your data, you should keep in mind a three basic principles:

    • Be careful with the messages which contain files. If the message was sent from an unknown address and it tells about winning any prize, a lost parcel or anything like that, this could be a fraud message. The other efficient kind of scam letters is a "business messages". lawsuits, Invoices for products or services, summaries, reports and other sensitive information don't be sent accidentally, and the addressee should know the person who sent it. In all other cases it is a scam.
    • Do not ignore the symptoms that your workstation displays. It takes a lot of computing resources to encrypt the data. If you observe a significant fall in computer capacity or detect a suspicious process in the Process Manager, you need to unplug the laptop, load it in safe mode, and search for threats. This, in case of infection, will guard some of your data.
    • Don't admit any alterations to the PC, coming from suspicious programs. The most effective way of information recovery is the recovery through Shadow Copies, so hackers have included the elimination of shadow copies in the primary functionality of malware. However removal of copies needs administrator rights and verification from the operator. Thus, not confirming changes from a unknown program at the right moment, you will save the opportunity to restore all corrupted information free of charge.
