Magniber Ransomware Expands To The Asian Region

Satendra Kashyap

Published

Anti-Ransomware

The ransomware and their reach have been growing to a considerable extent. This is exactly what is shown through the expansion of Magniber Ransomware. Once limited to the South Korean region, the ransomware has now expanded to include the entire Asian region. Essentially spread by Malvertisements, the virus makes the infected computers to redirect to the Magnitude Exploit kit pages. In fact, it should be noted that the Magnitude kit has been one of the oldest malware servicing kits and has been still active. 

Initially limited to the South Korean region, the Magniber ransomware has now reached its new, improved version targeting other Asian countries. It now comes with a few improvements that include refined source code, newer obfuscation techniques, and new targets. 

Once the Magniber Ransomware gains access to your computer, it begins encrypting all the files and data. All the encrypted files will get a .dyaaghemyextension. The original authors of the code limited the malware to South Korea and had been opting for the country-specific malvertising chains. However, recent reports indicate that malware is becoming one of the global threats. A few recent reports state that the virus has been found to attack the users in regions like Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other countries. 

The new version of the ransomware has been updated to include the different languages, and this includes a few Asian languages like Chinese (Macau, China, Singapore) and Malay (Malaysia, Brunei). The developers have also been into improving and refining the ransomware and its code. While the initial version had no options to obfuscation, the new version has now introduced obfuscation and evasive technologies. 

“Its source code is now more refined, leveraging various obfuscation techniques and no longer dependent on a Command and Control server or hardcoded key for its encryption routine,” the researchers at MalwareHunterTeam recently indicated. 

How to get rid of the Magniber Ransomware attack on your computer? Well, by using a powerful anti-ransomware solution. Services like ZoneAlarm can be one of the best options to address it effectively. Of course, other techniques can include manual intervention to take care of the issues. Regularly backing up your data and files, keeping all your applications and operating systems always updated, and blocking unwanted file extensions can be some of the good remedies you can apply to resolve the issues. The anti-ransomware you use should be capable of controlling the spread of malware through an effective PC shield. 

Given the fact that the Magniber Ransomware has now been able to add up Chinese and Malay language settings and has even attacked China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Brunei, and Malaysia as of now, it may be extremely necessary to check out if the anti-malware solution you choose is capable of handling the threats. A constantly updated database and screening techniques should be the basic features you are expected to have a look at – if you really care for the perfect protection to your computers. 

Since the Malware detects the actual targets based on the language settings, you may be at risk if your computers are using the proxies with Chinese or Malay IP. The cybercriminals have been into maximizing their efforts into the reduction of collateral damage. Given the precision with which the ransomware handles its operations, it would be extremely important to take the right type of precautions. 

Once the ransomware has attacked your device, the only way would be to pay up the ransom as there is no practical solution available. The best way to stay safe would be to ensure that you have taken precautions by installing appropriate ransomware protection.

Which Social Media Platform Are Best for Real Estate

Optimized used of social media platforms has become a very crucial part of real estate marketing. It helps in generating potential leads, increasing traffic, and also increasing sales. To make social media marketing work, it is essential to know the “what” and “where” of the use of social media platforms. Today numerous social media platforms are available on the internet. To make your social media approach a success, you need to devote time and money. Hence, if you are looking to maximize your ROI, having a clear understanding of which social media platform would give you the best results is very important.

Below we have discussed the best social media platforms and how to use these Social Media for Real Estate

1. Facebook

Checking Facebook account daily has become a daily routine of millions of people. You can start using Facebook by opening a Facebook account in the name of your business. This would give it a more professional look. Once the page is created, next comes ways to attract and engage your viewers. So, post your listings, share information about the neighborhood of those listings.

Update your Facebook account regularly either by posting images of your listings or by posting news about the current events that are taking place in the neighborhood. This way, you can connect your viewers to the neighborhood. The more positive things they know about the listings, the more interested they would become.

You can engage your clients by conducting contests.

Last but not least, you can use your Facebook account to show your clients that you care about them. Follow them on Facebook and congratulate them on their possession day. This would further show other viewers that you genuinely care about your clients. To increase sales, as a “real estate broker,” winning your client’s trust is very important.

2. Instagram

Beautiful pictures and attractive videos are the best way to get the attention of potential buyers. The social media platform, which is best as far as visual displays are concerned, is “Instagram.” You can use these visuals either as a part of a blog post or can even post them as a standalone post. While using Instagram, you need to be sure about the content you are posting. Figuring out the likes of your target clientele might take some time and effort. But once you get the hack of it, be ready to get lots of attention.

3. LinkedIn

If you want to show your seriousness and expertise in the field of real estate, “LinkedIn” is the right platform for you. LinkedIn is known for its professional approach. Create a business page and make sure you fill it with all relevant and essential information about your business. Post original and informative content related to real-estate. You can use this platform to keep in touch with your existing customers and even ask for new references from them.

4. Zillow

Though we cannot consider Zillow a social media platform, having your presence felt on this website would be highly beneficial for your business. Zillow is a listing site which gets millions of viewers daily. You can use this site for building a bond of trust with viewers. By answering the queries on the site’s Discussion Forum, you can let people know about your professional knowledge and experience. This would further help in increasing brand awareness.

5. Twitter

Twitter is all about posting images and videos accompanied with short, to the point and engaging tweets. It also allows you to link content from other sources. Post links to articles, videos, and other contents related to real estate. Though hashtag is a language of Instagram, it is equally used on Twitter.

6. YouTube

It’s considered one of the most effective platforms for sharing video contents. You can use this platform to give a video tour of the property to the potential buyers. You can also create videos of the neighborhood of the listing. To add a personal touch, be a part of the video tour of the listing and tell viewers about the features and other amnesties of the listing.

Conclusion

Using all the social media platforms might take lots of time, effort, and investment. However, focussing on few and relevant social media platforms is always advisable.
