WannaCryOnClick Ransomware Description
Fake versions of the WannaCryptor Ransomware (WanaCrypt0r Ransomware) are yet to become a thing of the past because researchers encountered another copycat that comes from Turkey, and also pretends to be the infamous WannaCryptor Ransomware. In the past month, we talked about several other WannaCryptor Ransomware impersonators like the CryForMe Ransomware and the Blooper Ransomware. The topic of today's publication is the WannaCryOnClick Ransomware – a wannabe file-encryption Trojan, which uses a ransom note written in Turkish, and it is very likely that Turkish users will be the primary targets of its attacks. Thankfully, the authors of the WannaCryOnClick Ransomware have not added any compromised modules that will allow their product to cause long-term damage to the victim's system or files. The WannaCryOnClick Ransomware is incapable of using any encryption to lock files on the victim's computer so that it is a fake file locker ultimately, which hopes to trick some naïve user into paying the staggering ransom amount that the attackers demand.
When the WannaCryOnClick Ransomware is deployed to a computer, it will display a new program window immediately, which is designed to look like the one used by the original WannaCryptor Ransomware exactly. However, some differences are noticeable such as the fact that the text of the ransom message is written in Turkish. In addition to this, the attackers demand a ransom fee of $7,000, which should be paid via Bitcoins. The 'Check for Payment' and 'Decrypt' buttons seen beneath the ransom message don't serve the purpose they claim to. Instead, whenever they are clicked, they will send an e-mail message to email@example.com informing which button was clicked automatically. This is likely to be done to inform the attackers if any victims agreed to pay the staggering ransom fee.
If you encounter the WannaCryOnClick Ransomware's Turkish ransom note, then you should keep cool and remember that none of your files were harmed during the attack, regardless of what the ransomware may state. Since the WannaCryOnClick Ransomware might leave some of its files behind even if the primary executable is deleted, we advise victims of this low-quality threat to deal with it by using a credible anti-malware tool.
We'd also like to remind victims of the WannaCryOnClick Ransomware that their computers are not very secure probably if they have to deal with this fake file locker. Next time they might not be so lucky so that it is recommended to make sure their computers are protected by a reputable anti-malware software suite. In addition to this, they should be more careful about the websites they browse and the files they download since nowadays cyber crooks may use all methods to propagate their threats.
