It is common to have ransomware demanding for cryptocurrency to allow access to your computer system. Now, there is a new ransomware named “Ransomwared” that has been implied to demand for explicit nude pictures instead.
Notably, ransomware has actually outstripped cryptojacking and the decrease of crypto price recently is considered as the possible reason for this scenario, which expects victims to send their nudes instead of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.
Upon receiving the threat, and the machine gets attacked, the data is encrypted with .iwanttits and .ransomwared file extensions. Then, the victims will be asked to send a picture of their breast to unlock the captived data.
With the use of Emsisoft, an anti-malware & anti-virus software company, it is possible to retrieve the data without sending nudes. This is made feasible with the tool developed by Emsisoft, although the process of decrypting is not revealed.
Surprisingly, Emsisoft is offering their decryptor for free and has made their support available for those who need help decrypting their files.
