Threat Database Ransomware Dfwe Ransomware

Dfwe Ransomware

A potent variant from the infamous STOP/Djvu Ransomware family, the Dfwe threat can devastate the computers it manages to infect. By using a military-grade encryption algorithm, the threat can lock numerous file types, rendering them completely inaccessible and unusable. The harmful operators of the threat will then proceed to extort their victims for money in exchange for assisting with the restoration of the valuable information. Indeed, affected users or companies very rarely can unlock their files without the decryption keys held by the attackers.

Whenevthe Dfwe Ransomware encrypts a file, it also will change that file's original name. This is a typical behavior observed in ransomware threats. In this case, the locked files will have '.dfwe' appended to their names. Another change made by the threat will be to create a new text file on the breached system. The file named '_readme.txt' will contain a ransom note with the hacker's demands and instructions.

Ransom Note's Details
