What is Bomber virus?


Bomber virus is a variant of Scarab ransomware that encrypts files on a computer using AES-256-CBC grade encryption algorithms, renames encrypted files with Base64, and affixes the .bomber file extension to the encrypted files. The ransomware will then produce a text file named HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES.TXT on the desktop and every folder it encrypted files in.

Here’s what is written in the text file:
