security: Synology Advises Users of SynoLocker

Posted on Friday, August 08, 2014 @ 09:44:40 EDT by meshal

NAS and storage server manufacturer Synology sends word this afternoon that they are informing their customers of a currently ongoing and dangerous ransomware attack that is targeting Synology devices.
 
Dubbed SynoLocker, the ransomware is targeting Internet-exposed Synology servers and utilizing a hereto-unknown exploit to break in to those systems. From there SynoLocker engages in a Cryptolocker-like ransom scheme, encrypting files stored on the server and then holding the key ransom. The attackers are currently ransoming the key for 0.6 Bitcoins (roughly KWD 99.04 ($350 USD)), a hefty price to pay to get your files back.
