Frozrlock Ransomware

What is Frozrlock Ransomware?

The files encrypted by the malicious Frozrlock Ransomware can be very hard to identify because they are not marked with a unique extension, which is what usually happens when ransomware encrypts files. Because of that, the only way to know which files were corrupted by this threat is by trying to open every single file. Of course, the chances are that every single file on your computer – except Windows elements and files in %WINDIR%f – was encrypted. This malicious threat, of course, targets documents, media files, and photos first, but it can also corrupt the files of downloaded applications. Due to this, you might find that you can no longer use your browser and other apps. While you can restore your web browser, restoring personal files might be more complicated. Hopefully, these files are backed up; otherwise, they might be lost for good.

How does Frozrlock Ransomware work?

Frozrlock Ransomware might have many different names because it might have many different versions. According to researchers, the structure of this dangerous infection is available to anyone via As long as you have 150 US Dollars, and you can follow the instructions to build the ransomware, you can create your own threat using the resources of the Dark web. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that cyber crooks would pass up the possibility. Another well-known open source code is Hidden Tear, and we have seen hundreds of different ransomware infections to emerge from it. Some of them include Mordor Ransomware and Kindest Ransomware. Whichever version of the malicious Frozrlock Ransomware you are dealing with, the chances are that you attracted it by opening a corrupted spam email attachment. Although you might figure out that the file you downloaded is fake, it is unlikely that you would be able to stop the ransomware by removing it. That is because it immediately creates a copy of itself in %APPDATA%. If you do not delete this copy as well, all of your files are encrypted in just about 5 minutes.

Once the encryption is complete, Frozrlock Ransomware places a file named “THIS_YOU_MUST_READ.txt” on the Desktop. In the sample we tested, the message within the file was represented in Korean, and it informed that a payment of 0.1 Bitcoin was expected. At the time of research, this equaled $172. You are asked to pay this ransom via the link that is provided to you via the TXT files as well. You are also instructed to install the Tor Browser to access the site. Unfortunately, your personal files are encrypted using complex AES-256 and RSA-4096 algorithms, and only a special decryption key can help you unlock them. It is suggested that if you pay the ransom and email, all of your files will be unlocked; however, that is unlikely to happen. Of course, the creator of Frozrlock Ransomware might have the ability to decrypt them, but that does not mean that they would. So, if you choose to take the risk of paying the ransom, note that you might be left empty-handed. Unfortunately, at the moment, a legitimate and free file decryptor that could assist you does not exist, and so you do not have many options.
