Last week, MalwareHunterTeam spotted a new ransomware named Saturn. As per a detailed report from Bleeping Computer, Saturn ransomware is being actively distributed at the moment, but the methods used for its distribution are unknown. Also, this ransomware is not decryptable at the moment.
After infecting the machine, Saturn ransomware executes commands to disable Windows repair and clear Windows backup catalog. It encrypts the files and adds Saturn to their name. The ransomware also leaves a ransom note in each folder, which contains a link to the payment site. The ransom amount is set to $300 at the moment, which doubles after seven days.
