Bbnm Ransomware

Bbnm Ransomware Description

The STOP/Djvu Ransomware family is still being used extensively by cybercriminal groups to create new destructive malware variants. One such example is the Bbnm Ransomware threat. It is another variant of the STOP/Djvu Ransomware with few distinguishing characteristics, but its potential to cause damage is significant. Once a system is infected by Bbnm, it will be subjected to data encryption that will affect most of the files stored on it.

The locked files will no longer be accessible. Users also will also notice that each encrypted file now has '.bbnm' appended to its original name as a new extension. Another change made by the malware is the appearance of a new text file named '_readme.txt.' The role of this file is to deliver the ransom note of the attackers containing instructions for their victims.

Ransom Note's Overview

Reading through the note reveals that the sum that the cybercriminals attempt to extort from the affected users as ransom is $980. However, if users establish communication with the hackers during the first 72 hours of the attack, they will supposedly receive preferential pricing, which will be 50% lower. Victims also can send a single locked file to be decrypted for free as a demonstration that the hackers are actually capable of restoring the encrypted data. The note contains two email addresses that act as communication channels. The main one is 'manager@time2mail.ch,' while 'supportsys@airmail.cc' is described as a reserve address.
