Threat Database Ransomware Koom Ransomware

Koom Ransomware

The Koom Ransomware belongs to the STOP/Djvu family of ransomware threats and, as such, doesn't display any meaningful improvements over the typical variants from the STOP/Djvu family. To distinguish itself from the rest it uses a different file extension to mark the files it encrypts. In this case, users will notice that their locked files have '.koom' appended to their original names.

When the Koom Ransomware has finished encrypting all files that match its list of targeted file types, it will proceed to deliver a ransom note to the infected system as a text file named '_readme.txt.' The note contains the usual instructions associated with STOP/Djvu threats.

Victims are told that to receive the decryption key and software tool necessary for the restoration of the files, they will have to pay the sum of $980 to the hackers. However, if the affected users initiate contact within the first 72 hours, the amount of the ransom will supposedly be decreased by 50% to $490.

To receive further instruction on how to transfer the money, victims are directed to contact the two email addresses found in the ransom note - '' and '' They also can attach a single locked file that the hackers promise to decrypt and return for free.
