Although Ewdf is a simple variant without any major improvements, its potential to cause damage remains significant.

All processed files will no longer be accessible or even usable. Furthermore, they will be marked by having '.ewdf' appended to their original names, as a new extension. The ransom note of the threat will be dropped on the infected machines as a text file named '_readme.txt.'
