It takes only a few seconds to create and set up your custom ransomware.
👉Just create an account on the Tox website, without the need to provide your email address or any other identifying information.
👉Once a user register with the site, follow these three simple steps to creating your own malware:
👉Type a desired ransom amount you want to ask victims for.
👉Provide an additional note in the “Cause“, presumably the message that will alert victims that they are being held hostage to a piece of malware.
😍Finally, you are prompted to fill out a captcha, and click “Create“.
- This process creates an executable of about 2MB that is disguised as a .scr file,” McAfee explains. “Then the Tox users distribute and install as they see fit. The Tox site (runs on the TOR network) will track the installs and profit. To withdraw funds, you need only supply a receiving Bitcoin address.
🤭The most important part is that, the bitcoin paid by the victim will be credited to users account. Tox will keep a 30% fee of the income.
– As it seems tox ransomware is a new breed of malware as a service allowing anyone to earn Bitcoins without requiring any hacking or programming skills. Thus creating a new trend of malware spreading.
