What is SATANA virus? How does it work?

SATANA virus is a new version ransomware. It is good at to seizing the files on a victim’s PC and encrypting them. the virus places the file with the contact information of SATANA ransomware in the registry of the operating system. Another peculiarity of this threat functions silently without triggering any windows errors, such as BSOD. In fact, it waits for the system reboot. Once SATANA virus enters your computer, the names of the infected files are then changed to [email protected]_[original file name] and from this point on become inaccessible. !satana!.txt file containing file recovery instructions is also added to the infected folders.

However, this victim is given a seven-day deadline to pay for the data in this ransom note. Every infected computer is given an individual ID and should send it to the indicated email to receive the decryption key. After the specified time runs out, the criminals threaten to delete the decryption key which means that the encrypted files will be lost forever. What is also typical to this particular ransomware is that it alters the system’s settings as well. It changes the Master Boot Record settings and modifies them to load the ransomware at the system’s startup. This means that if you create some new files on your hard drive, they will most likely be encrypted the next time you reboot your computer.
