Proof of Concept Linux Ransomware

This is a simple ransomware

The idea is to prove that writing a blindly destructive piece of software is not only very simple, but can be achieved with less than 200 lines of code.

CTF questions are here.

Feel free to post the write-up anywhere

Building & Usage (DO NOT EXECUTE)

$ clang randomware.c -o ~/randomware
$ strip --strip-all ~/randomware # Skip this step for easier analysis
$ sudo ~/randomware


This software was created purely for research purposes.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
