Reversing the petya ransomware with constraint solvers

Recommended Posts

Extreme Coders

Ransomware is very common these days. Once it installs on a user machine it begins encrypting files.
When the user comes to know about the ransomware attack it is already too late. Unless the user has a backup, he/she must must pay the ransom to recover the files.
Luckily there has been cases where due to a faulty implementation of cryptography breaking such malware becomes feasible.
The recently discovered petya ransomware is an example.

This blog post is a short walk through on breaking the petya ransomware with a constraint solvers. Hope you like it & find useful.
