Threat Database Ransomware Jhdd Ransomware

Jhdd Ransomware

The Jhdd Ransomware is a threat for the sole purpose of locking the data of its victims and leaving it in an unusable state. The threat is capable of impacting numerous different file types including PDFs, documents, archives, databases, pictures, audio and video. The goal of the attackers is to leverage the encrypted data to extort money from their victims. It should be noted that analysis of Jhdd has revealed that the threat is a variant from the STOP/Djvu family. The main characteristic that sets this variant from the rest is the '.jhdd' file extension it uses to mark each locked file. A ransom note will be created on the breached devices in the form of a text file named '_readme.txt.'
