BlackByte Ransomware Virus

As with other ransomware or crypto-virus, BlackByte’s operations begins by spying on the entire system. It locates certain files where users possibly written their important credentials and information.
After the scan, BlackByte will encode the data using an advanced algorithm technique.
Files infected by BlackByte ransomware will continue to be inaccessible unless victims decided to acquire the services of attackers.

Then, it will leave a note with a file name BlackNote and BlackByte_restoremyfiles, which contains the ransom message and instructions of the attackers.
It also specifies how to retrieve locked files and how much it would cost to purchase the decryption program.
Normally, the BlackByte ransomware authors will huge amount of money that is in the form of crypto currency like Bitcoin. Note that the majority of these file coder virus only accepts cryptocurrency for their transaction that is hard to track.
Research shows that malware can spread through mass spam and intrusive online advertising.
Typically, data encrypting criminals happen to act as a person of a known company and send emails to random email users.
By using an engaging topic to get the attention of online users, the ransomware were unknowingly executed and infects the computer.
The moment that victims opens it, malicious software will be active on the operating system. Then, it will start working and locating precious information as well as vulnerable settings that it can exploit.

The developers of BlackByte work like any other ransomware handlers to contaminate the computers.
These types of cyber criminals still have a goal of generating revenue by charging ransom fees for their victims.
