ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware Description
The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware is an encryption ransomware Trojan that has been associated with previously released encryption ransomware threats, including the BansomQare Wanna Ransomware, released shortly before. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware can be recognized because it encrypts the victim's files and adds the file extension '.ZaszyfrowanePliki' to the end of each affected file's name. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware will then deliver a ransom note to the victim. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware functions as most encryption ransomware Trojans, making the victim's files inaccessible and then demanding a ransom to restore access to the affected files.
How the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware Attack Works
Attacks like the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware are quite common and, unfortunately, very effective. Because of this, PC security researchers advise computer users to take steps to ensure that their data is well protected. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware uses strong encryption algorithms to make the files inaccessible and then demands payment of a ransom. At this time, the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware's ransom is of 100 USD to be paid using Bitcoin. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware uses a ransom note that includes a countdown timer, which supposedly makes the ransom cost increase as soon as it reaches zero. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware targets the user-generated files, which may include the following file types:
.3dm, .3g2, .3gp, .7zip, .aaf, .accdb, .aep, .aepx, .aet, .ai, .aif, .as, .as3, .asf, .asp, .asx, .avi, .bmp, .c, .class, .cpp, .cs, .csv, .dat, .db, .dbf, .doc, .docb, .docm, .docx, .dot, .dotm, .dotx, .dwg, .dxf, .efx, .eps, .fla, .flv, .gif, .h, .idml, .iff, .indb, .indd, .indl, .indt, .inx, .jar, .java, .jpeg, .jpg, .js, .m3u, .m3u8, .m4u, .max, .mdb, .mid, .mkv, .mov, .mp3, .mp4, .mpa, .mpeg, .mpg, .msg, .pdb, .pdf, .php, .plb, .pmd, .png, .pot, .potm, .potx, .ppam, .ppj, .pps, .ppsm, .ppsx, .ppt, .pptm, .pptx, .prel, .prproj, .ps, .psd, .py, .ra, .rar, .raw, .rb, .rtf, .sdf, .sdf, .ses, .sldm, .sldx, .sql, .svg, .swf, .tif, .txt, .vcf, .vob, .wav, .wma, .wmv, .wpd, .wps, .xla, .xlam, .xll, .xlm, .xls, .xlsb, .xlsm, .xlsx, .xlt, .xltm, .xltx, .xlw, .xml, .xqx, .xqx, .zip.
There is very little, if anything, to differentiate the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware's attack from the many other encryption ransomware Trojans that are active today. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware delivers a ransom note in the form of a text file and a pop-up window. The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware's ransom note contains the following text:

Preventing the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware Attacks
The ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware may enter a computer via several ways. The most common of these ways include spam email attachments, peer-to-peer file-sharing networks, fake software downloaded from shady websites, and other threats that may download and install the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware onto the victim's computer. The con artists also may take advantage of poor security protections, such as weak passwords and poorly guarded RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) connections. All of these weaknesses can be exploited to install the ANDRZEJ DUPA Ransomware or threats like it onto a victim's computer. Once these threats have been installed, the victim's files become unrecoverable in almost every case. Because of this, prevention is key. Malware analysts strongly advise taking strong security precautions and, most importantly, having file backups on secure places so that the affected files can be replaced quickly.
