Cyberpunk 2077 Mobile Android Ransomware Scam

Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the release of Cyberpunk2077, one of the most anticipated games of 2020. The cybercriminals create new Android ransomware disguised as the #Cyberpunk2077 game and trick potential victims into downloading and installing it on their Android devices from a fake website imitating the Google Play Store.

As per Kaspersky, RC4 algorithm with hardcoded key (in this example – “21983453453435435738912738921”) is used for encryption. That means that if you got your files encrypted by this #ransomware, it is possible to decrypt them without paying the ransom.
