Bad news with CryptoLocker

New variant of Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B that encrypt all documents and ask to pay a ransom in order to unlock their files.
On December 3, 2013, there has been a new variant of ransomware CryptoLocker, classified as Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B
The CryptoLocker is a ransomware that encrypts documents all drives (local and remote) connected to your computer, demanding a ransom of 300 $ / EUR or in equivalent currency.

The CRAM (Anti-Malware Research Center of TG Soft) team has analyzed this new variant of CryptoLocker.

Name: Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B
Size: 761856 byte
MD5: 7f3cc059ffc6c11fe42695e5f19553ab

The Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B is downloaded and installed in the computer of victim by a trojan dropper, that arrives via email with attachment a false PDF document of invoice, order or payment.

When the dropper is executed, this has downloaded in the computer of victim other malwares.
In this case, the trojan dropper has downloaded and executed the Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B.

When running the Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B, starts 2 processes of himself, and copies itself in:
%userprofile%\%local settings%\%appdata%\<random>.exe

c:\Documents and Settings\luigi\Local Settings\Application Data\SSFVRXKYWGOTRL.EXE

Inside the .EXE file of Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B the "Time Date Stamp" is : 12/03/2013 14:50:58

The threat adds itself to the registry to start when Windows starts:

[*CryptoLocker] = %userprofile%\%local settings%\%appdata%\<random>.exe

[CryptoLocker] =  %userprofile%\%local settings%\%appdata%\<random>.exe

When executed the Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B connects to one of the following sites:
  •  lobrtucswpyeajq.net
  •  nrtroiauihtcmys.org
  •  opunyapqmiavvtg.co.uk
  •  pjrinsnwctgotet.info
  •  qhsexkdsgumitmp.com
  •  usyusdoctfpnee.org
  •  ybcgtpgmkqlxrrr.biz
In our case, the Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B sends the following encrypted request (POST):

sends an encrypt packet of 192 bytes.

The site of CryptoLocker reply with an encrypted packet of 200 bytes.

At this point the Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B starts to search all documents  (doc, cer, pdf, xls, rtf, etc) inside the computer to encrypt with the RSA-2048 algorithm.

The Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B creates the following key of registry:


[PublicKey] = hex:06,02,00,00,00,a4,00,00,52,53,41,31,00,08,00,00,01,00,01,00,8b [..]
[VersionInfo] = hex:26,30,9c,81,21,b3,3d,d3,ae,33,9c,81,ae,33,e9,f2,d7,46,ef,e5, [..]
[WallPaper] = hex:00,00,37,82 [..]

where #### is a number.

In our case: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CryptoLocker_0388

The data of value of  "PublicKey" is a RSA key.

Inside to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CryptoLocker_0388, there is a subkey  "Files":


here there is the list of encrypted files:
[name of encrypted file] = <number dword>

After that has been encrypted files, the Trojan.Win32.CryptoLocker.B changes the image of desktop with:

and shows the following windows for the document's ransom:

The ransom can be made with the following payment methods:
  • MoneyPak
  • Bitcoin

Inside the body of malware is visible the following string:

Info payment: Your important files encryption produced on this computer: photos, videos, documents, etc. Here is a complete list of encrypted files, and you can personally verify this.

Encryption was produced using a unique public key RSA-2048 generated for this computer. To decrypt the files you need to obtain the private key.

The single copy of the private key, which will allow you to decrypt the files, located on a secret server on the Internet; the server will destroy the key after a time specified in this window. After that, nobody and never will be able to restore files...

To obtain the private key for this computer, which will automatically decrypt files, you need to pay 300 USD / 300 EUR / similar amount in another currency.

Click «Next» to select the method of payment.

Any attempt to remove or damage this software will lead to the immediate destruction of the private key by server.
