Elmers Glue Locker Ransomware

In this article we will tell about a threat we recently encountered; it is known as Elmers Glue Locker Ransomware. For starters, we should say our researchers are not sure if the infection is fully developed. What makes us believe it is the malicious application's message and working manner. The hackers ask to transfer a huge amount of money, but the malware does not do anything bad enough that would at least make the user think of paying the ransom. To be more precise, the asked payment is sixteen Bitcoins or approximately thirty-eight thousand US dollars. Usually, if ransomware creators tell the price they ask for a sum less than one Bitcoin or between one and two Bitcoins, so in this case, the demanded amount is highly irregular. Nonetheless, the cyber criminals could spread it just to test how it works and possibly even try to upgrade it and distribute it again. In any case, if you somehow encountered Elmers Glue Locker Ransomware or want to know more about it, we recommend reviewing our report. Read more »
