Attackers are developing an aggressive new ransomware program for Windows machines that encrypts user files as well as the computer's master boot record (MBR), leaving devices unable to load the OS.
The program is dubbed Satana -- meaning "Satan" in Italian and Romanian -- and, according to researchers from security firm Malwarebytes, it is functional but still under development.
New Satana ransomware encrypts user files and master boot record | PCWorldUsers might be able to repair the MBR by using the Windows recovery options, but this requires working with the Windows command line and the bootrec.exe (boot recovery) tool, so it is likely beyond the abilities of typical users.
The current version of Satana hasnít yet been widely distributed, and the researchers donít expect that it will because the code is not yet mature and has flaws. However, they believe this version will likely serve as a base for future improvements.
