Threat Database Ransomware Isal Ransomware

Isal Ransomware

The infosec community has detected another threatening STOP/Djvu variant. Named Isal Ransomware, the threat operates similarly to all other STOP/Djvu Ransomware family variants. The Isal Ransomware is targeted at individual computer users predominantly. Once inside their computers, the Isal Ransomware will initiate a robust encryption process that will lock the files stored there. As a result, victims will no longer be able to open any documents, databases, archived PDFs, images, photos, etc. Each locked file will have the '.isal' file extension attached to its original name. Finally, the threat will generate a new text file on the compromised systems named '_readme.txt' that will contain a ransom note with instructions for the users.

Isal Ransomware's Demands

The ransom note is consistent with the ransom-demanding messages of other STOP/Djvu malware variants. It states that to receive the hackers' decryption key and software tool, victims will have to pay a ransom of $980. If victims can trust the note, that sum can be reduced by 50% to $490. All the affected users have to do is initiate communication with the attackers within the first 72 hours following the ransomware attack. The criminals also allow a single file to be sent to them that they will supposedly unlock and return to the user for free.
