Ransomware

How Petya ransomware works?

On June 27, 2017, a ransomware cyber attack known as Petya (detected by ESET as Win32/Diskcoder.C Trojan) began spreading rapidly around the globe.

Petya ransomware attacks a computer's MBR (master boot record), a key part of the startup system. If Petya is successful, it will encrypt the whole drive

You’ll then get a message that your files have been encrypted, and that a ransom be paid to release them. This malware is too dangerous to risk infection, once the system gets infected it can't be recovered even after paying the ransom.

How WannaCry ransomware works?

On May 12, 2017, a ransomware cyber attack known as WannaCry (detected by ESET as Win32/Filecoder.WannaCryptor.D) spread rapidly across the globe. 

Like the Petya ransomware attack, WannaCry encrypts all of your PCs files, effectively locking them up and making them unavailable.

A ransom is demanded in the form of Bitcoin in exchange for restoring access to your PC and files. The price for unlocking your data and hardware increases with time. So, If the payment isn’t made by the deadline, the computer is rendered permanently inaccessible.
