Dehd Ransomware Description
It seems that cybercriminals are not wasting any time and immediately after the holidays have started unleashing more variants based on the extremely prolific STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. Despite the fact that most of the variants do not exhibit any meaningful changes or improvements, they still being harmful malware threats that can lock users completely from accessing their own files. The new threat named Dehd Ransomware is not an exception.
The Dehd Ransomware uses a strong encryption routine and as a result, can render all of the victim's documents, pictures, photos, databases, archives, etc., unusable entirely. As part of its nefarious activities, the threat also will append '.dehd' to the name of each locked file. Finally, the threat will create a new text file named '_readme.txt' on the compromised systems. The file carries a ransom note with instructions for the affected users.
Ransom Note's Details
The text of the note follows the established STOP/Djvu pattern. It clarifies that the only way to restore the locked data is by paying a ransom to the attackers in exchange for the decryptor tool and the decryption keys in their possession. The price set for the ransom is $980. By messaging the attackers within 72 hours of the Dehd Ransomware infection, users can supposedly reduce the demanded amount by 50% to $490. The ransom note also mentions that the cybercriminals are willing to decrypt a single file for free. Two email addresses under the control of the attackers can be found in the note - 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and 'email@example.com.'
