GandCrab Ransomware Infects Old Computers

ransomware

Opening a webpage on a WordPress website with a Windows XP computer can infect your computer with ransomware.


Experienced Russian hackers are selling GandCrab cheaply on the Dark Web. This file-encrypting malware doesn't need a current internet connection to lock up all your files once you've been infected by a phishing email or compromised website.

GandCrab encrypts files much faster than before, displaying a PDF error message to fool you into thinking that nothing is happening.

Your files are encrypted and given the file extension, ".KRAB". It can spread to other computers on your network using an SMB exploit.

GandCrab appeared in January 2018 and quickly became one of the most popular types of ransomware.
