Threat Database Ransomware Bbbw Ransomware

Bbbw Ransomware

The Bbbw Ransomware belongs to the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. This particular malware family has been enjoying continued popularity among cybercriminals, due to the ease with which new variants can be created. Despite possessing nearly identical behavior and functionalities, the numerous STOP/Djvu variants remain extremely potent and destructive.

The Bbbw Ransomware is not an exception, and any computer that it infects will be impacted significantly. Victims will suddenly find out that they are unable to access or open their files stored on the device. Documents, PDFs, databases, archives, photos, images, etc, will all be locked with a military-grade encryption algorithm. Each affected file will have its name changed with '.bbbw' being added as a new file extension.

Ransom Note's Overview

Bbbw's ransom-demanding message is dropped on the breached devices as a text file named '_readme.txt.' The instructions of the threat are close to identical to the notes dropped by other variants from this family. It mentions that to restore their data, victims will need to pay a ransom to the attackers. In exchange, they will supposedly send back a special decryption tool that can unlock the affected files.

The price of the ransom is set at exactly $980, but users can apparently cut it down to $490 with the only requirement being that they contact the hackers within the first 72 hours of the attack. As part of their messages, affected users also can attach a single encrypted file. The cybercriminals state that they will unlock and send the file back for free.
