Bopador Ransomware Description
The Bopador ransomware is a new name for a Djvu ransomware clone. Djvu is also commonly referred to as the STOP/Djvu ransomware, as it is part of a family of threats that share a lot of common features. A huge amount of STOP/Djvu ransomware variants were decrypted in late 2019, with even more variants added to the free decryption tool towards the end of the year.
In light of the ransom amount that Bopador demands, the ransomware is obviously intended for spam email campaigns and targets individual users and not large businesses. It's not too clear when exactly Bopador started infecting victims but it's safe to say that the influx of infection reports started in the second half of 2019.
Bopador copies STOP/Djvu in almost every respect. Its only defining feature that separates it from Djvu is that encrypted files receive the ".bopador" extension appended after the old one once the malware scrambles them, preserving the original filename. Bopador places the ransom demand in a plain text file named "_readme.txt" and the ransom note is as follows:
