The ransomware spreads using weaponized Word document.The Command and Control is hosted on the TOR Network, at the following onion address “hxxp://hcwyo5rfapkytajg[.]onion” .The attackers leverage several Tor2Web proxy services to easily allow the access to the Tor C2.The binary can work both as cryptor and decryptor.The C2 dynamically generates a different Bitcoin address for each infection.“LooCipher encrypts the victim’s files using AES-128 ECB, and adds the extension “.lcphr“.” states Eminsoft.

“No ransom note file is left, but the malware does leave a screen telling the victim to make a BitCoin payment and then use the same malware to decrypt their files once payment is complete.”
