Computer viruses can range from annoying but innocuous bugs to technological catastrophes. The ESXiArgs ransomware is pretty bad, especially when it evaded a recovery script created by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and FBI with an updated variant in a week. Low Level Learning took a look at the virus (I’m not sure if this was the original or updated variant) and tried to reverse engineer it, “to see if there was anything fishy that we can take advantage of to decrypt the files.”
This stuff is way over my head but it’s always cool to see people take computer viruses apart.
