What is Bad Rabbit?

Bad Rabbit is a new cryptographic virus which has attacked computers in Russia, the Ukraine, Bulgaria, and Turkey since late October 2017. Also among the victims are The Interfax RIA, The Fontanka RIA, a number of Ministries of the Ukraine, as well as Odessa Airport. The principle of operation is simple: it uses the Mimikatz utility in order to retrieve the account data from your PC’s memory. It also searches for the admin’s active account data. Bad Rabbit then tries to gain access to the workstations in the local network by using SMB and WebDAV. As soon as it gets access to your PC, the virus encrypts all the data that it managed to reach, and after that it changes the Master Boot Record. When this procedure is complete, Bad Rabbit resets your computer and pops up its message with a demand for 0.05 Bitcoins (about $300 as of the end of October 2017).
