HelloKitty ransomware is a file-locking Trojan that can find its way into your system undetected usually through phishing attacks or unpatched vulnerabilities.
What is HelloKitty Ransomware?
HelloKitty ransomware encrypts PC files and causes major issues for many businesses. Typically, this ransomware targets businesses, schools, and state and local governments of all types. It has been active since November 2020 and made the news after claiming to have stolen numerous games’ source codes from high-profile developers CD Projekt Red.
If you are the victim of a HelloKitty ransomware attack, you must get support right away.
How Does HelloKitty Ransomware Work?
In essence, it is a file-locking Trojan that finds its way onto your system undetected. Typically, this is via phishing attacks that deceive you or your employees, or through unpatched software on your network. Unpatched firewall vulnerabilities, such as the recent flaws in FortiGate’s, was cause for numerous outbreaks. Regardless of how it made it into your system, HelloKitty will then encrypt your files to prevent file content from opening. This creates a debilitating situation for anyone infected.
A ransom demand is then made by the hackers, stipulating that they will unlock your files once you have paid the ransom. It is crucial to seek guidance if you feel you need to pay. There are federal regulations related to the Treasury Department Office of Foreign Asset Control that can get you in trouble if you violate them. You can also never truly be sure that the hackers will keep their word, although we have not seen this to be a common issue.

HelloKitty ransomware attacks aren’t subtle, and they are easily identified by a text file appearing on your desktop. It will explain that your files have been encrypted, detailing more specifics, and telling you what to do to pay them.
