Kraken Cryptor - Ransomware

The ransomware appends random extensions to encrypted files and requires the victim to email the threat actor for the decryption key. Some variants of the malware are disguised as the SuperAntiSpyware anti-malware application in an attempt to deceive users. Kraken Cryptor was discovered in the summer of 2018 and continues to evolve with new variants discovered on a regular basis.
