The purpose of the Miia Ransomware is to block access to affected files by encrypting them. Subsequently, it generates a ransom note. The malware’s ransom note is located in a file named '_readme.txt,' and it provides victims with instructions on how to pay the amount required for the data recovery. The characteristic of the Miia Ransomware is also that it appends the '.miia' extension to the names of all locked files. For example, a file called '1.jpg' will change to '1.jpg.miia' after encryption, 'image.png' to 'image.png.miia' and so on.
The file '_readme.txt' containing the ransom note gives the attackers’ contact and information about the payment. It also states that the victim cannot recover the encrypted files without a decryption tool and a unique key, that only the attackers can provide. Victims are asked to send a message to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org email addresses to get additional information about how to recover their data. If they do this within the initial 72 hours after the attack, the ransom amount would be $490; otherwise, they will have to pay twice as much. The Miia Ransomware belongs to the Djvu Ransomware family.
Malware researchers do not advise ransomware victims to pay a ransom since that often results in losing both the encrypted files and the money. In many cases, threat actors do not provide a decryption tool as promised. Therefore, users can limit the damage from a ransomware attack by backing up regularly their most valuable data.
