Abstract [en]

This paper contains an analysis of the payload of the popular ransomware for Windows, Android, Linux, and MacOSX platforms. Namely, VaultCrypt (CrypVault), TeslaCrypt, NanoLocker, Trojan-Ransom.Linux.Cryptor, Android Simplelocker, OSX/KeRanger-A, WannaCry, Petya, NotPetya, Cerber, Spora, Serpent ransomware were put under the microscope. A set of characteristics was proposed to be used for the analysis. The purpose of the analysis is generalization of the collected data that describes behavior and design trends of modern ransomware. The objective is to suggest ransomware threat mitigation techniques based on the obtained information. The novelty of the paper is the analysis methodology based on the chosen set of 13 key characteristics that helps to determine similarities and differences thorough the list of ransomware put under analysis. Most of the ransomware samples presented were manually analyzed by the authors eliminating contradictions in descriptions of ransomware behavior published by different malware research laboratories through verification of the payload of the latest versions of ransomware. © 2017 IEEE.
