Threat Database Ransomware Myday Ransomware

Myday Ransomware

The Myday Ransomware is a threatening variant from the Dharma malware family. If the Myday Ransomware manages to infiltrate the targeted computer, the threat will initiate an encryption process with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm. As a result, users will be cut off from accessing their private or business-related files. PDFs, documents, archives, databases, pictures, photos, etc. will all be rendered unusable. Myday, as other Dharma variants, also will change the original names of the affected files drastically. The threat follows the pattern - original name, a unique ID for the victim, email address of the hackers and finally new file extension. The email address used by the threat is '' while the file extension is '.myday.' The Myday Ransomware drops two ransom-demanding messages in the form of a pop-up window and a text file.
