New Satan Ransomware


A new Ransomware as a Service, or RaaS, dubbed Satan has been discovered. This service allows any wannabe criminal to register and create their own customized version of the Satan Ransomware. For this service, Satan RaaS customers agree to pay its developers up to 30 percent of the revenues generated from ransom payments
Satan is a ransomware that encrypts a victim's files with RSA-2048 bit and AES-256 bit encryption, which is virtually impossible to decrypt. Consequently, victims are forced to pay the ransom to be able to recover their data, by going to a Dark Web payment page using a Tor browser and handing over the required amount in Bitcoin currency.
