Doydo Ransomware Description
The Doydo Ransomware is a new variant of the previously detected Babuk Ransomware threat. Despite lacking any significant improvements when compared to the Babuk Ransomware, Doydo's destructive potential should not be underestimated. Once the threat has infiltrated the victim's computer successfully, it initiates an encryption routine that locks a wide range of filetypes with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm. Every single encrypted file will be marked by having '.doydo' appended to its original name. Then, a ransom note with instructions will be dropped on the system. More specifically, the malware creates a text file named 'Help Restore Your Files.txt' on the victim's desktop.
Ransom Note's Details
According to the ransom-demanding message, the hackers behind the Doydo Ransomware want to receive $300 from the affected users. The money must be sent to the provided crypto-wallet address and must be in Bitcoins. After making the payment, victims are expected to send proof to the email address mentioned in the note - 'firstname.lastname@example.org.' They also can attach a single encrypted file that will supposedly be unlocked for free and sent back.
