Mpaj Ransomware is a threatening ransomware infection that encrypts files on your computer with a military-grade cryptographic algorithm and then asks for a ransom to decrypt them. Once the Mpaj Ransomware is executed, it will look for all files with file extensions like .doc, .html, .jpg, .png, .xls and so on. Your files will be encrypted with this extension: .mpaj. The Mpaj Ransomware is part of the infamous and extremely prolific Stop/Djvu Ransomware family.
When the threat has finished locking the files stored on the system, it will proceed to display a ransom note with instructions for its victims. The message is contained inside text files named '_readme.txt.' When the affected users open one of the generated note-bearing files, they will learn that the hackers want to receive the sum of $980. Almost a thousand dollars is not something that many people can get their hands on quickly, especially during difficult times brought on by the COVID-19 global pandemic. So, the cybercriminals offer to reduce their demands in half to $490 but only if the victims reach out within the first 72 hours after the Mpaj Ransomware infection.
Two email addresses are mentioned in the ransomware's note. The main address is 'helpmanager@mail[.]ch' while the reserve email is 'helpdatarestore@firemail[.]cc.' A single locked file can be attached to the message and will supposedly be decrypted for free.
