Jdokao Ransomware Description
The Jdokao Ransomware is a file-locking Trojan that's part of the larger family of the Snatch Ransomware. This Trojan runs in most Windows versions and encrypts the user's media files for blocking and ransoming them. Solutions to this threat include having backups for data restoration and letting anti-malware services contain and remove the Jdokao Ransomware.
The Snatching of Corporate Files Continues
As a Trojan family, the Snatch Ransomware is a quieter and more particular example and lacks the extreme proliferation of counterparts like the Djvu Ransomware or the Crysis Ransomware. Even so, it's a legitimate threat to any user's files and is a problem for corporate business entities especially. With variants like the Jdokao Ransomware, it's also becoming apparent that the Snatch Ransomware business is ramping up operations and victims.
The Jdokao Ransomware may reboot the PC into Safe Mode as an ironic anti-security step before its encryption routine. As is tradition, the Trojan uses a secure encryption method with a dynamic key kept by the threat actor, and in this attack, blocks most media files of any value on the PC. Malware experts also generally note attempts at deleting the Restore Points from most file-locker Trojans, including the Snatch Ransomware family.
With the files in a hostage scenario, the Trojan creates a text note that displays its demands for the victims. The Jdokao Ransomware uses a new e-mail address for negotiations but is, in other respects, similar in content to relatives like the Cndqmi Ransomware, the Fxmwtv Ransomware, the Mcauwpjib Ransomware and the Tkoinprz Ransomware. Users taking advantage of the decryptor's demonstration should be careful about interactions with any threat actor files. Some attackers will deliver fake 'unlocked' media that install other threats.
The ransom proceedings also hold another danger: the threat actors may take the money but do not give any unlocking assistance back.
Blocking a Trojan Foray before It's Files Getting Blocked
Users should always be careful when choosing their passwords for any accounts with admin privilege, particularly. The Snatch Ransomware family is a noted abuser of brute-force attacks, through which attackers can access the PC and install Trojans like the Jdokao Ransomware at will. Other infection vectors popular currently include fake Coronavirus applications and news, e-mailed documents with disguised exploits and illicit torrents.
The Jdokao Ransomware is of little relevance to non-Windows users, who only are at risk from other Trojan families. However, anyone on most versions of Windows should have secure, non-local backups for recovering their files. The Jdokao Ransomware infections tend to include attacks against the Restore Points that prevent local backup recovery from occurring.
However, malware experts find no significant protection in this threat versus traditional anti-malware tools, which should block and delete the Jdokao Ransomware.
The random choices of e-mails and names make the Jdokao Ransomware seem like a Trojan without much thoughtfulness. Unfortunately, it has more craftsmanship than many users have for their files, making even a Trojan family's clone into an awkward ransom.
