Gtys Ransomware

Gtys Ransomware Description

The Gtys Ransomware is another addition to the STOP/Djvu malware family. It appears that cybercriminals are continuing to use this particular strain to easily create new destructive threats. Being a ransomware threat, the main goal of Gtys is to infiltrate the targeted victims' computers and then run an encryption routine. As a result, victims will be locked out from accessing nearly all of the files found on the breached devices.

Gtys distinguishes itself from the numerous other STOP/Djvu threats by appending '.gtys' to the names of all encrypted files. The instructions of the cybercriminals responsible for unleashing the threat will be dropped on the infected devices as a text file named '_readme.txt.'

Demands Overview

According to the text of the ransom-demanding message, the threat actors demand to be paid a ransom of $980 if they are to assist their victims with restoring the encrypted data. The note also mentions that affected users who initiate communication with the hackers during the first 72 hours of the ransomware attack will receive a 50% discount, bringing the ransom to $490.

Two email addresses can be found in the ransom note - 'support@sysmail.ch' and 'supportsys@airmail.cc.' As part of their message, affected users can send one encrypted file to supposedly be unlocked for free. Of course, making any kind of contact with cybercriminals carries significant security risks and is not recommended.
