New ransomware uses Remote Desktop to spread

Analysis of the ransomware was conducted by malware analyst, Nathan Scott. When the ransomware executable is run, it first scans all mapped drives, removable drives, and network drives for data files to encrypt. “When the ransomware executable is run it will scan all mapped drives, including removable and network drives, for data files to encrypt.  When it encounters a file that contains certain file extensions it will encrypt them using AES encryption and then add the oorr. string to the beginning of the file name.”
