Nvetud Ransomware Description
The Nvetud Ransomware is a data-locking Trojan, which has been uncovered by malware experts recently. They dissected this threat and determined that it is a variant of the infamous STOP Ransomware.
Propagation and Encryption
Malware experts cannot determine what the exact infection vector used in the spreading of the Nvetud Ransomware is. It is likely that the creators of the Nvetud Ransomware may have used spam emails containing macro-laced attachments, fake application updates, and pirated bogus copies of legitimate software to propagate their file-encrypting Trojan. When the Nvetud Ransomware gains access to your system, it will perform a scan quickly, which is meant to locate all the data that this threat was programmed to target. Then, the Nvetud Ransomware will start encrypting the targeted files. Once a file has undergone the encryption process of the Nvetud Ransomware its name will be changed. The Nvetud Ransomware appends a ‘.nvetud’ extension to the newly locked files’ names. For example, an audio file called ‘My-American-Boy.mp3’ will be renamed to ‘My-American-Boy.mp3.nvetud’ and will no longer be playable.
