Deriving Ransomware Formulation Complexity and Compromisation Topology
Abstract: The Ransomware family, notably, is outspreading itself amongst major organizations and institutions. The family has gained several of its members in the recent two years, increasing the infection rate by 68.5%, as per Statista?s Annual Ransomware report. Investigation: This paper demonstrates ransomware created by the authors in a testing lab with the use of Python, acquainting the ease of developing the malware and deploying it into remote machines. Method: The Ransomware is constructed from utilizing already available python libraries, inside a python environment. The Ransomware is deployed into a remote machine, along with a Reverse Channelized Socket connection, and cryptographic keys are exchanged to maintain access and to supply the attacker with the decryption key, upon a successful compromise. Principle Result: Heuristics performed by the ransomware to compromise the system derive a similar methodology used by sophisticated ransomware to carry out organizational attacks. Domestic ransomware made with python libraries is as effective as other members of the family.
