Manamecrypt (a.k.a. Cryptohost)

Analysis from Sabrina Berkenhopf for G DATA: Manamecrypt – a ransomware that takes a different route. Somewhat unusual in that rather than spreading via attachments or exploit kit, the sample analysed by G DATA is bundled with legitimate software, it blocks a number of applications from running where processes include certain strings – for instance, the names of security products. In its present incarnation, the data can, however, be recovered.
