BISAMWARE Ransomware

BISAMWARE is a newly discovered ransomware strain. The new malware does not belong to any of the bigger ransomware families.

BISAMWARE encrypts the victim system and most files on it. Encrypted files receive the ".BISAMWARE" extension. This means that the encryption process will rename a file called "document.doc" and turn it into "document.doc.BISAMWARE" upon successful encryption.

BISAMWARE will encrypt documents, archive files, databases and media files.

The ransomware changes the system wallpaper with an image containing instructions on how to locate the ransom note. The actual ransom note is deposited inside a file named "SYSTEM=RANSOMWARE=INFECTED.TXT" and contains the following text:
