Threat Database Ransomware Hhjk Ransomware

Hhjk Ransomware

The Hhjk Ransomware may not be an entirely unique malware but that fact is irrelevant when it comes to the potential damage that the threat can cause. Indeed, even though Hhjk has been classified as a variant from the notorious STOP/Djvu Ransomware family, it can wreak havoc on the systems it manages to infiltrate. The threat will engage in its encryption routine and go after numerous popular file types, including documents, PDFs, photos, images, archives, databases and many more.

Each affected file will be locked with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm and left in an unusable state. Victims will notice that nearly all of the files stored on the breached system now have '.hhjk' added to their names as new file extensions. Another change caused by the malware will be the appearance of a text file named '_readme.txt.' The role of this file is to deliver a ransom note with instructions from Hhjk Ransomware's malicious operators.
