Efji Ransomware Description
The Efji Ransomware is a new crypto locker threat that is a variant belonging to the Stop/Djvu Ransomware family. As such, it displays minimal variance when compared to the rest of the members of the infamous Stop/Djvu Ransomware family. The Efji Ransomware attempts to infiltrate the targeted computer without being detected and then proceeds to encrypt the files stored on it. The result is that the users will be 'locked' from accessing their private or business-related files. Upon encryption, every file will have '.efji' added as a new extension to the original filename. The customary ransom note with instructions from the cybercriminals is dropped as a text file named '_readme.txt.'
Victims of the Efji Ransomware are told that they will have to pay $980 to the hackers in exchange for the restoration of the files. If communication is established within the first 72 hours following the ransomware infection, the price will be lowered by 50% to $490. For that purpose, two email addresses are provided - firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Exactly one file can be attached to be decrypted for free.
It is never a good idea to submit to the demands of criminals. Every amount of money sent their way will only be used to sponsor their threatening activities further.
