Cukiesi Ransomware

Posted: February 1, 2021

The Cukiesi Ransomware is a new file-locker being spread online. The criminals behind it are targeting countries worldwide, and they rely on diverse malware propagation channels such as abusing torrents, fake downloads, pirated content, deceptive advertisements, and threatening emails. Users who end up with the Cukiesi Ransomware on their computers will be unable to access a large portion of their files because the threat will encrypt their contents. The ransomware targets a wide range of file types, such as images, documents, archives, databases and many others.

The Cukiesi Ransomware adds a new extension to locked files, which also includes the victim's unique ID generated by the ransomware – '_cU{<VICTIM ID>}.Cukiesi.' However, these are not the only changes the Cukiesi Ransomware brings. It also will wipe out the System Restore Points and the Shadow Volume Copies, which could potentially be used to restore some of the damaged data.

The last action of the Cukiesi Ransomware is to create the file 'nooode.txt' that contains a message from the perpetrators. Of course, the criminals are saying that they own a working decryptor and that their victims will be able to purchase it by making a payment via Bitcoin. They list the emails agreemaster@protonmail.com and agreemaster@tutanota.com.

Accepting the offer of anonymous cybercriminals is a terrible idea that you should not consider. Instead, use a reputable anti-virus tool to ensure the full removal of the Cukiesi Ransomware. Once the threat is eliminated, you will be able to experiment with legitimate data recovery software.
