The Nnuz Ransomware is a threat, which sole purpose is to lock its victims' data so they will not be able to reach it. The Nnuz Ransomware will impact crucial file types, including archives, databases, pictures, PDFs, documents, audio and video. That is the way the attackers found to make easy money by demanding a ransom payment from their victims. Security researchers that analyzed the Nnuz Ransomware code, concluded that the threat is a variant from the STOP/Djvu family. The Nnuz Ransomware exhibits the same behavior as other members of the family. However, it uses a different file extension to mark the locked files, 'nnuz.' The Nnuz Ransomware will then create a ransom note, which will take the form of a text file named '_readme.txt.'
