The Haxerboi Ransomware is a file-encryption Trojan that has not been spotted in the wild yet, but it appears to be part of a cybercrook toolkit dubbed ‘HaxerBoi malware builder V 0.1.’ Currently, this harmful tool does not seem to be advertised anywhere so that we can’t say for sure whether it will gain popularity in the crypto-threats field. However, what we can confirm is that it contains a ransomware builder, which is able to generate a fully working file-encryption Trojan, which possesses the ability to leave its victims with a large number of encrypted files swiftly.
The default version of the Haxerboi Ransomware uses the ‘.haxerboi’ extension to label the locked files, but we suspect that the file extension used will be changeable via the builder. As for the ransom message that the Haxerboi Ransomware delivers, the author has opted to take advantage of a ransom window, which is styled to imitate the infamous WannaCryptor Ransomware (WanaCrypt0r Ransomware). Naturally, the contents of the ransom message can be edited according to the likenesses of the attacker so that they are likely to change if the ransomware builder starts being sold.
If you suspect that a variant of the Haxerboi Ransomware has infiltrated your system and locked up your files, then we advise you not to contact the perpetrators of the attack since they are unlikely to offer help for free. Ransomware authors are almost always after the money of their victims, and they are likely to demand a ransom payment in exchange for a decryptor that might not even exist. The advice is to use a credible anti-virus tool to dispose of the Haxerboi Ransomware and then look for alternative file restoration solutions.
