The Errz Ransomware is a treacherous malware that cybersecurity experts have classified as being a STOP/Djvu variant. Despite lacking any major improvements over the rest of the threatening variants, Errz Ransomware's destructive capabilities remain significant. Computers infected by the threat will have the data stored on them encrypted with a strong cryptographic algorithm. Afterward, victims will find themselves unable to access any of the locked files.

As part of its actions, the threat also will modify the names of the targeted files, by appending '.errz' to them as a new file extension. Affected users also will notice the appearance of a new text file on the breached device. The file will have a name similar to '_readme.txt' and be responsible for delivering a ransom note with instructions from the cybercriminals.

Demands' Overview

The ransom-demanding message left by Errz, reveals that the hackers expect to be paid a ransom of $980 if they are to assist in the restoration of the encrypted files. After paying the money, users are told that they will receive a software tool and the necessary decryption keys. However, like most STOP/Djvu variants, Errz also mentions that users who establish contact with the attackers within the first 72 hours will only need to pay 50% of the initial ransomware amount.

According to the ransom note, victims can message the cybercriminals via two email addresses ('' and '') and a Telegram account at '@datarestore.' A single locked file can be attached to the message. The attackers state that if the chosen file doesn't contain any valuable information, it will be unlocked and returned to the user for free.
