Reyptson Ransomware Spams Your Friends by Stealing Thunderbird Contacts

July 17th 2017 By Lawrence Abrams

 

Over the weekend, Emsisoft security researcher xXToffeeXx discovered a new ransomware called Reyptson that is targeting Spanish victims. Since then, we have seen increased activity in the ransomware’s developmen. Today security researcher MalwareHunterTeam took a deeper look and noticed that Reyptson conducts its own spam distribution campaign directly from a victim’s configured Thunderbird email account.

 

This is a new feature that has not been seen in ransomware before, so I decided to take a deeper dive into this ransomware to see what we could find. For those who have been infected with the Reyptson Ransomware, unfortunately there is no way to decrypt this ransomware currently for free. We have, though, setup a dedicated Reyptson Support & Help Topic for those who wish to discuss it or ask questions.
