Step 4- Create a Readme.txt file which gives you all steps to unencrypt all files

Step 5- If the person paid then the attacker will send the desencryption software

Step 6- Enjoy the money 🙂

The story of steal wallet

Cryptocurrencies are a popular target for hackers because crypto transactions are pseudonymous and typically irreversible. This makes it challenging to associate stolen crypto with the real-world identity of the hacker and essentially impossible to reverse nefarious transactions.

We have multiple scenario when wallet is compromised for example

90% malware

20% other

Malware and Stealer

Campaign Based

In this method for any service or hot exploitation(CVE-2021-40444) run campign for comromise users and drop malware.

Spreader

Broadcast malware to users with website(download for free anything), document(docx, xlsx, …)

Stealer Cloud Log

Lot of malware have leakage in server side and in dark/deep web seller sell it.

For example Nocryi Logs sell redline stealer such as below

Phishing

run campaign for compromise users and drop malware.

For example run binance method for binance breached ids document and drop malware to victims

Fake Airdrop

Scammers will use free airdrop events with posters or links to promote in the community. If the user scans the code, enters the website and approves to receive airdrop tokens. After approval, the scammers obtain permission to transfer away user assets easily. 

Fake QR Code

Fake QR code scam refers to that fraudsters use fake QR codes to let users perform operations such as approval. Usually, the user will enter the transfer interface or phishing pages after scanning the code. Actually, this transfer operation is an approval process. If the user clicks “Approve”, the fraudster will obtain permission to transfer the asset, which leads to the loss of the asset. 

Phishing App

The scammer will develop Apps that are highly similar to the official App. When the user creates or imports a wallet, the data will be recorded and synchronized to the scammer’s specific server. As a result, users have a great risk of being stolen by scammers.

Phishing Website

“Phishing website” refers to a fake website used to deceive users. Its page is basically the same as the real website. Scammers use fake sites to deceive and steal users’ private keys or mnemonics. In general, Phishing websites have only one or a few pages, which are slightly different from real websites. They usually spread fake giveaways/airdrops, or impersonate official supports, or other means on communities to attract users to use their fake websites. 

Fake Token

Scammers counterfeit tokens by using similar token names and symbols, and then they will exchange for real tokens that are well-known tokens. The main victims are mostly new users since users who get familiar with the blockchain can judge a token by checking the contract address of the token, such as the common USDT, ETH, BTC, etc. 

Fake Customer Service

Most people will contact customer service for help when there are some problems that need to be solved. At this time, scammers get the chance to impersonate official supports. Usually, they have the same name and logo (not ture) with the official supports and then hide in the various communities/groups. Once users send their issues on the group, these scammers will send messages to users privately attached unknown links/QR codes to fraud users’ private key or mnemonic.

DApp Approval

When it comes to currency exchange in the DEX platform, the approval step will be used. Only after the first operation of “Approve“ can the swap be performed, and this is only one of the application scenarios. 

Since the “Approve” operation essentially grants the exercise authority of part of your token to another address or smart contract address, scammers will use codes or links to maliciously let users perform “Approve” operations. For example, users may receive airdrop tokens attached memo and link, noted that the airdropped tokens can be exchanged for other tokens. If the user opens the link and executes the exchange, they will fall into the trap that maliciously approves Dapp. As a result, the user’s assets will be transferred by the Dapp easily.
