Ransomware has been a huge problem for several years now.
The first wave of money-grabbing ransomware didn’t even bother with encryption, but simply locked up your computer.
Almost as soon as you logged in, you’d be shoved into a programmatic cul-de-sac in which the only software running was your browser in full-screen mode, and the only web page visible was one squeezing you to pay a “fine” to remove the software lock.
Eventually, however, word got around that you could simply boot from a recovery CD or USB such as Sophos Bootable Anti-Virus, and get rid of the malware without paying.
Also, the crooks alleged to be behind the main strain of lockscreen ransomware, known as Reveton, were arrested in Spain, which put the kibosh on things.
The next wave of ransomware left your computer unlocked, and all your apps running just fine, but scrambled your data instead.
Instead of buying a PC unlock code, you bought a data unlock code – literally, the cryptographic secret needed to decrypt your scrambled files.
Leaving your operating system and your browser running correctly actually helps the crooks to close the deal.
You don’t need to find another computer to get online and pay up, thus making the whole process easier and giving you less time to talk yourself out of dealing with the crooks.
How ransomware works
Until 2016, most cryptographic ransomware, or cryptoransomware for short, used a two-stage encryption process something like this:
Encrypt the data using AES with a randomly chosen key. Encrypt the random AES key with an RSA public key. Discard the AES key and keep the RSA-encrypted version only.
There are numerous slight variations on this approach, but many ransomware samples, including families we’ve written about before such as CryptoLocker, CryptoWall, TeslaCrypt, Locky, Zepto and Odin, use RSA on top of AES to handle their cryptographic needs.
But 2016 seems to be the year that the ransomware scene began to fragment, with various newcomer crooks trying their hand at new strains of malware using similar, yet, different, attack techniques.
Petya, for example, left your files alone but scrambled what’s known as the Windows Master File Table (or MFT) instead.
The MFT acts as an index to the raw data sectors that make up the directories and files on your disk.
Wiping out the MFT is like having a map from which all the roads have been erased, and where names of all the towns and cities have been cut out, put into a hat and shuffled up.
You can still tell that there’s a place in England called Oxford, for example, if you go carefully through all the names in your hat, but you won’t have any idea where where it is, let alone how to get there.
Mamba took this idea one step further, and scrambled your entire disk, just like Apple’s FileVault or Microsoft’s BitLocker.
In fact, Mamba “cheated” by simply installing an actual full-disk encryption product – a ripped-off open source project called DiskCryptor – but keeping the boot-time key secret, so the crooks could sell it back to you.
Here comes CryPy
Here comes another proof-of-concept ransomware sample with a new twist, going by the name CryPy.
It’s written in Python, it does encryption, and it doesn’t exactly make its victims want to smile, thus Cry and Py.
There’s no real cause for alarm, at least from the sample we’re describing here, because CryPy relies on a web server that’s offline now, and we can’t get the malware to work reliably even by simulating the now-missing web backend.
Neverthless, the malware has been compiled into a Windows .EXE file (executable program) from which the Python source code can easily be extracted, so we may yet see other cybercrooks having a crack at CryPy’s experimental approach.
The big difference between CryPy and the CryptoLocker sort of ransomware is that CryPy calls home to a control server each time it finds a new file to scramble.
The malware makes an HTTP request containing a unique identifier for the victim plus the original filename for each file; the server replies each time with a replacement filename and a one-time random AES encryption key.
Every file has its own unlocking key. Every file gets a new and meaningless name. The crooks end up with a complete list of all your filenames. New angles on... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Media’s greatest fear is that the election could turn out to be a referendum on the media.
Donna Brazile, a CNN contributor and at the time DNC Vice Chair (now Chair), was caught through the Wikileaks Podesta email dump feeding to Hillary’s campaign a question to be used at a CNN presidential town hall.

“Instead of talking about favoritism among journalists toward a candidate or cause, Trump is making a more extreme claim: doing politics and doing journalism are the same thing,” journalism professor Jay Rosen told CNNMoney. “In this way of thinking, ‘the media’ and ‘the left’ have an equal sign between them.” ….
In recent days, Trump has cited a stolen cache of documents published by Wikileaks to claim that “the media collaborates” with Clinton. But the documents show only isolated examples of questionable journalistic behavior — not the systemic fraud he alleges….
Accusations of bias are as old as the craft itself. Media watchdogs on the left and the right seek to hold journalists accountable.
But Trump’s accusations are different. They suggest he sees no difference between the practice of journalism and the practice of politics.
Trump is reflecting a growing view on the right that journalists are nothing more than “Democratic operatives with bylines,” as conservative blogger Glenn Reynolds likes to say.
Burying the Brazile revelation is part of a pattern of the mainstream media burying Wikileaks documents that expose collusion between the Clinton campaign and the media. We covered several such instances from the latest rounds of disclosures:

For those unaware, in 2008 California voters passed Prop 1A requiring the state to modernize the train service between SF and LA. In particular, it called for an express train capable of going from downtown SF to LA Union Station in under three hours. This means building completely grade separated, electric, 220 mph trains.
Progress would have begun in 2010 if it was not for CHSRA (California High Speed Rail Authority, the agency charged with building and managing this) fucking over Caltrain, the train between San Jose and San Francisco. CHSRA would have had two modern tracks built six meters above but adjacent to Caltrain's, which is really fucking stupid. After everyone on the Peninsula (except SF who wants to destroy Caltrain and replace it with BART) told them to fuck off they redid their plan (for blended service with both Caltrain and HSR) and HSR construction began outside Fresno in 2014. Caltrain began construction on their part this year, with the installation of power transformers for electrification. A handful of major grade separation (ie road tunnels under tracks) will begin next year. CHSRA will eventually cut a new Bay-to-Basin tunnel underneath Pacheco Pass.
Looking south, CHSRA's priority is tunneling under the San Gabriel Mountains as the current tracks there (a 25 mph single track loop at Tehachapi) are unsuitable for modernization. People in Burbank are crying over it, and funding for this critical part (ie the keystone) of the line is uncertain at the moment because Congress technically wants to kill CAHSR.
Funding: the cost is still the originally projected $70 billion. Half would be paid by California, the other half the federal government through the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement act (PRIIA) of 2008. California has already accepted $10 billion through this, the money being from the cancelled HSR projects in Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin. When Prop 1A passed, it only did so with a 55% majority and not the 66.8% required for a tax increase (pursuit to 1978 Prop 13). As a result, Governor Jerry Brown moved to try and net HSR money through the state's carbon tax/carbon... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
