The Ransom-ware campaign targeting the Russian government is a new phenomenon and is taking place at an unprecedented pace, a security firm has warned.
In the past 24 hours, the Ransomeware campaign has targeted the Russian Federation, Ukraine, China, the United States, and others.
The firm, Kaspersky Lab, said the campaign started on January 1 and is still in progress.
A similar campaign in 2015 targeted the United Kingdom.
The new campaign targets Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Defense, the Federal Security Service (FSB), the Federal Agency for Preventing and Combating Crime, and other agencies, the company said.
The malware, which encrypts files, is similar to ransomware, but with different methods.
The attack requires a specific command and control server that can only be reached by the victim.
Once it is accessed, the ransomware encrypts and demands money for the download.
The ransom can be paid with a USB drive or through Bitcoin.
The latest Ransom campaign has been distributed via email, via social media, and via email and social media notifications.
The Ranny ransomware is a variant of the ransomware known as Ransom.
Ransom is a type of malware that encrypts data files with a digital signature to create a digital trail.
It is used to force victims to pay a ransom for the data.
The ransomware, which is also known as the “Ransomware Trojan” or the “Crimeware” malware, is used by cyber criminals to encrypt data files.
The digital signature allows it to be easily traced back to the source of the infection, so it can be removed.
Ranny is a threat to governments, companies, and individuals.
RannaCrypt, the second ransomware campaign targeting Russia was also released on January 12.
The attacks hit businesses and individuals in Russia, Ukraine and other countries, according to Kasperska.
