After WannCry there is new Variant named Petya Ransomware Emerged Spreading fast

Following the recent WannaCry ransomware attack, a new variant leveraging Petya ransomware emerged globally on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 starting in the Ukraine and spreading to millions of potentially affected people around the world. Machines which are up-to-date with Microsoft updates and security patches has a low probability of exposure. Unfortunately, this attack includes the ability to leverage one vulnerable machine on a network and propagate to other machines that were actually current. This has been reported second major ransomware attack in two months.




The malicious software will reach to machine through attachment or from melicious websites. The ransomware infects computers and then waits for about an hour before rebooting the machine. Thereafter it will started encrypting files on the computer. The ransomware takes over machine and will demands $300 as ransom. This ransom is paid in Bitcoins. This is not clear yet who is behind it, but thinkers assume someone who wanted the malware to look like ransomware. It is also guessed that the motive of this attack is destructive against Ukrainian Government. Security researcher Nicholas Weaver told cybersecurity blog Krebs on Security that ‘Petya’ was a “deliberate, malicious, destructive attack or perhaps a test disguised as ransomware”. Pseudonymous security researcher Grugq noted that the real Petya “was a criminal enterprise for making money,” but that the new version “is definitely not designed to make money.




This is designed to spread fast and cause damage, with a plausibly deniable cover of ‘ransomware’. The payment mechanism in the malware was inept to the point of uselessness because it has a single hard coded payment address, meaning the money can be traced. The requirement to email proof of payment to a webmail provider, meaning that the email address can be – and was – disabled; and the requirement to send an infected machine’s 60-character, case sensitive “personal identification key” from a computer which can’t even copy-and-paste, all combine to mean that “this payment pipeline was possibly the worst of all options (sort of ‘send a personal cheque to: Petya Payments, PO Box … ’)”

Steps once infected
Almost after one hour of infection Petya will reboot the computer. If you observe that you computer is infected, turn it off completely; Disconnect from Internet. Don’t think of paying ransome because the contact details provided may or may not be correct. Format your hard disk and reinstall operating system. Restore your files from backup.

Make sure you have genuine windows and all updates installed including all Microsoft security patches. Ensure good anti virus or Malware protection software is installed. Keep a good backup of important data. Don’t open attachment from unknown source. Understand well that nothing on internet is free now-a-days; everything comes packaged with something. Stay protected !!!!

The Tower Of Shadows Chandigarh

The Tower of Shadows is a uniquely built structure which is not only interesting but also adds to the beauty of Chandigarh city. Located close to the Legislative Assembly in the Capitol Complex, this airy, partially-open pavilion is a symbolic structure which reflects Le Corbusier’s interest in studying the penetration of sunlight inside a building. It traces the path of the sun through shadows, which are cast both inside and outside the tower.

This historical landmark was planned and built by the Swiss Architect Le Corbusier who also created the beautiful city Chandigarh. The Tower of Shadows is an architectural brilliance that describes the architect’s theories of sun control. The structure is specially designed in a way to study the solar movement. He wanted to prove that sunlight can be controlled within the four corners of the building. This will help in obtaining low temperatures in hot countries when the temperature is so high. Consciously, the tower of shadows was built between the Palace of Justice and the Parliament building in the Capitol Complex area. It is a tall, open sided hall which provides sufficient shade. The place is calm and beautiful, perfect for meditation. The structure is precisely aligned on the north-south axis so that it agreeably interrupts the severe symmetry of the enormous square. The tower’s north side is completely open and the other three faces are furnished with Brise-Soleil. Brise-Soleil is an architectural feature of a building that reduces heat gain ranging from simple patterned concrete walls to wing like structure. The simple pattern concrete wall structure was popularized by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier in which the sunlight was deflected to reduce the heat effect. Then there is a ramp which leads from this square to the Sunken Park.

The Tower of Shadows is a beautiful place to visit. Before visiting this place one needs to take necessary permission from the capitol complex. This place comes within the sensitive area where one has to follow security protocol.
