What is BlackMatter Ransomware and How Does It Work?
BlackMatter ransomware was first spotted in July 2020, and it is unique in that it brings together various features of some of the most potent and dangerous ransomware variants we’ve seen. In total, it combines features from the following:
- LockBit 2.0
BlackMatter will first infiltrate your system–typically via phishing or unpatched software–and then encrypt your files and replace the extensions with randomly generated numbers and letters. As a result, you’re unable to open any of your files until they have been decrypted.
There are two massive problems with BlackMatter that make it so dangerous:
- It’s fairly new to the scene, meaning not enough time has passed for there to be any free decryption tools for businesses to use. It is unlikely that a free decryption tool will be developed, but if so, it could take months to years to arrive.
- It uses SHA-256 encryption, which is extremely high-level encryption that’s almost impossible for the average person to crack and decrypt.
Upon breaching your system, the attackers will demand some form of payment to decrypt your files for you. Currently, BlackMatter is targeting enterprise-level businesses that make a lot of money. Consequently, you need to ensure you’re protected from ransomware attacks, and that you can find a swift solution if your defenses are breached.

What to Do If You’ve Been Affected by BlackMatter Ransomware
The first step is identifying if you have been attacked by this ransomware. As there are so many different variants around, it’s easy to think you’ve been attacked by one ransomware, when really another was at fault. This link is a free tool to help you identify which ransomware variant has infected you.
Thankfully, it is relatively easy to spot BlackMatter ransomware on your system. Firstly, you will see a .txt file magically appear on your desktop, usually titled “README”. It will direct you to a dark web internet browser with information on how to speak to the hackers. Also, as mentioned before, a telltale sign of BlackMatter is seeing your file extensions changed to a series of random numbers and letters.
If you have spotted these signs and believe you’ve been infected with this ransomware, be sure to do the following:
- Disconnect the compromised systems from the network
- Determine if you have cyber breach insurance
- Don’t follow any instructions in the text file on your desktop
- Call us immediately at (949) 428-5001! We are available 24x7x365.
- Report the attack to the authorities
We also urge you to avoid all communications with the hackers. In our experience, negotiating with hackers is pointless, as they have all the control while you have nothing. Therefore, the only possible outcome is one that’s worse than the situation you’re already in.
