Eijy Ransomware

Eijy Ransomware Description

The Eijy Ransomware targets the data of its victims and encrypts it with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm. The threat can be used by cybercriminals in financially-motivated attack operations. The attackers can unleash the ransomware on the breached devices, and then extort the victims who wish to recover their valuable data for money. It should be noted that the Eijy Ransomware is a variant from the infamous STOP/Djvu malware family, but that fact has no bearing on its destructive capabilities.

One of the first signs that something is wrong affected users will notice, is that nearly all of their files will now carry a new file extension. Indeed, the threat marks all locked files by adding '.eijy' to their original names. Another change in the system will be the creation of a text file named '_readme.txt.' Inside the file, users will find a ransom note with instructions from the cybercriminals.

According to the ransom-demanding message, Eijy Ransomware's victims will need to pay the sum of $980 if they wish to receive the necessary decryption keys from the hackers. If the ransom note can be trusted, that initial amount may be brought down by 50% to $490. The only mentioned requirement is for users to contact the attackers within the first 72 hours. They can do so by sending a message to the two email addresses found in the note - 'support@bestyourmail.ch' and 'supportsys@airmail.cc.
