Efvc Ransomware

Efvc Ransomware Description

The Efvc Ransomware is another addition to the ever-growing STOP/Djvu family of ransomware threats. However, do not let the notion that Efvc is a simple variant lead you to think that the threat is any less potent. If executed on a breached device, the threat can impact nearly all of the data stored there and leave it in an unusable state. Due to the strength of the utilized encryption algorithms, restoration of the locked files without having the proper decryption keys is practically impossible.

What sets the Efvc Ransomware apart from the numerous other STOP/Djvu variants is the file extension it uses to mark the affected files. Indeed, users will notice that their documents, PDFs, archives, databases, and more, now carry '.efvc' as a new extension. The threat also will drop a text file named '_readme.txt' that carries a ransom note with instructions.

Reading the note reveals that the attackers demand to be paid $980. That initial ransom amount can potentially be reduced by half if the affected users contact the hackers within the first 72 hours. To do so, the note leaves the victims with two email addresses and a Telegram account - 'restorealldata@firemail.cc,' 'gorentos@bitmessage.ch,' and '@datarestore.' The attackers also are supposedly willing to unlock a single file for free, as a demonstration of their ability to decrypt all of their victims' data.

The full text of the note is:
