Threat Database Ransomware Jjyy Ransomware

Jjyy Ransomware

Ransomware threats are still being used by crooks to pest computer users all around the world. The Jjyy Ransomware, another member of the STOP/Djvu family, was uncovered by security researchers this week. The Jjyy Ransomware is programmed to perform the following actions on the infected computers:

  • Use a strong encryption method to encrypt as many fil as it can, to make them unreachable by the computer user.
  • Change the files' names by adding a new file extension to the end of their names.
  • Display a ransom note that will be contained on a text file '_readme.txt.'

The ransom note will guide the victim in the process of contacting the crooks handling the Jjyy Ransomware, via two email addresses - and and how to pay the ransom. It also contains an offer to decrypt one of the encrypted files so that the victim can be certain that the crooks have a working tool to recover the compromised data.

The '_readme.txt' file presents the following content:

The Jjyy Ransomware can infect a computer when its users visit torrent sites and dubious pages, click on corrupted advertisements, open unknown email attachments and more. This is why malware researchers always counsel computer users to be very careful with what they access.

The payment of a ransom fee or contact with hackers should be avoided. Therefore, victims should disregard the instructions on the ransom message. Instead, they need to remove the Jjyy Ransomware with an anti-malware solution and use any decryption method available to recover their data.
