Ok. The Medusa Ransomware doesn’t REALLY turn your files to stone, but it makes them just as useless and inaccessible. This latest ransomware burst on the scene in late September and according to Bleeping Computer it appears to be getting distributed worldwide with victims scattered around the globe. Researchers have not yet identified just how Medusa is being spread though we can surmise it is through the usual channels such as phishing, downloads and watering holes.
Just Getting Started
Only time will tell just how big and ugly Medusa will get but submissions to ID Ransomware have been streaming in.
Despite the steady stream of victims reporting in, Medusa is so new very little is known about how it is being spread and even whether or not if you pay the requested ransom you will receive a decryption key!
According to the ransom note generated by Medusa you can email them one of your encrypted files and they will decrypt it for free to prove that they can indeed unlock your files before you send them payment. Speaking of payment, at this time it is not clear from the ransom note posted on Bleeping Computer (shown below) exactly how much you need to send! Perhaps these guys should get some third party help with their ransom demands?
