What is Petya?

The Petya ransomware started to spread around the globe on June 27, 2017. This onslaught, which targeted Windows servers, PCs, and laptops, looked to be an updated version of the Petya malware worm. It spread to unpatched devices using the same Server Message Block vulnerability as WannaCry did and to vulnerable machines using a credential-stealing mechanism. While Petya was a cyberattack that affected the entire world, Ukraine was its main target during its time in June 2017.

How Does Petya Ransomware Work?

Petya takes use of the Server Message Block protocol implementation flaw CVE-2017-0144 in Microsoft. This attack first exploits the weakness before encrypting the master boot record and other files. The system is unreachable once the user receives a notification telling them to reboot it. Because of this, the operating system is unable to locate files and there is no way to decrypt the data, which turns Petya from the ransomware that it was once thought to be into a wiper.

By including a spreading mechanism similar to what we observed in WannaCry in May 2017, the new variant has significantly enhanced its capabilities. Microsoft issued a set of critical updates on March 14 to fix the underlying vulnerability in supported versions of Windows, but it’s possible that many businesses haven’t yet installed them.

What happens when a Petya attack is initiated?

Like most ransomware, Petya is difficult to remove after it has infected a system. In most cases, the victim has to decide whether to pay the ransom (in hopes of actually getting the encryption key) or erasing everything and restoring it from backup. The best approach to avoid ransomware altogether. Here’s what to do before, during and after an attack.
