TSPY_KOLLAH.F - Files held for ransom
by Marianna Schmudlach / July 17, 2007 12:30 AM PDT

July 17th, 2007 by Roberto Tayag
This morning (TrendLabs time), we have received news of a new ransomware by the so-called ?Glamorous team?, which claims to encrypt its hostaged files using RSA-4096 encrpytion tool. Detected by Trend Micro as TSPY_KOLLAH.F, this ransomware is said to have affected several customers, including a couple of large companies in the United States.

TSPY_KOLLAH.F usually arrives as file downloaded from the URL http://{BLOCKED}-golf.net/pajero/pajero.exe. When executed, it encrypts files with certain extensions in all available drives on the affected system. The said files include Microsoft Office files (.DOC, .XLS, .PPT), PDF documents, and archived files (.ZIP, .RAR) ? essentially files that contain private data, and therefore are most important to computer users. Once this spyware is finished with this routine, it drops the file READ_ME.TXT in all folders. This file serves as the ?ransom note?, telling users that unless they buy the decryptor (for $300), the affected user?s private data will be shared.

Below is a screenshot of its ransom note:

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
