Threat Database Ransomware Jhbg Ransomware

Jhbg Ransomware

The Jhbg Ransomware is a potent variant based on the STOP/Djvu malware family. Although this fact means that the threat is largely identical to the other variants from the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family, victims will find that the destructive capability of the Jhbg Ransomware is massive. Indeed, compromised systems will be subjected to a data encryption routine that will affect almost all of the user's files. The uncrackable cryptographic algorithm ensures that only the hackers have the right decryption key that could unlock the affected data.

When Jhbg locks a file, it will change the original filename simultaneously as well. More specifically, the threat will mark each encrypted file by appending '.jhbg' to its name. Victims will also find that a new text file has been created on the breached device. This file named '_readme.txt' carries a ransom note with instructions from the cybercriminals.

Ransom Note's Details

Reading the message left by the Jhbg Ransomware reveals that the attackers are trying to extort the sum of $980 from their victims. In exchange, they promise to send a decryption tool and the key needed to restore the affected files. Of course, trusting the words of people responsible for the distribution of malware threats is extremely risky.

Still, the hackers try to lure their victims by also promising to drop the demanded price by 50% if they receive a message from the victim within 72 hours. As potential communication channels, the note left by the Jhbg Ransomware mentions two email addresses ( and and a Telegram account (@datarestore).
