Threat Database Ransomware Gcyi Ransomware

Gcyi Ransomware

Part of the STOP/Djvu family of threats, Gcyi Ransomware's main goal is to infiltrate the computers of its victims and encrypt the data stored there. Although, as a variant, it is almost completely identical to the rest of the STOP/Djvu threats, Gcyi's encryption process is strong enough to render all affected data unusable and inaccessible.

One of the characteristics that separate this particular piece of malware from the rest of the threats, is the unique file extensions it employs. Indeed. All encrypted files will have their original names modified to now include '.gcyi' as a file extension. One of the final steps of the threat involves delivering a ransom note with instructions for its victims. This message will be dropped to the breached systems as a text file named '_readme.txt.'
