When deployed and executed on the targeted computers, the Oflg Ransomware will scan for a diverse range of file types - documents, PDFs, images, photos, archives, databases, and many others, and subject them to data-encryption with a strong cryptographic algorithm. Each encrypted file will be marked by the addition of '.oflg' to its original name, as a new file extension. The Oflg Ransomware may be classified as another STOP/Djvu variant, but that fact doesn't make the Oflg Ransomware any less threatening.
Cybercriminals running ransomware attack operations are almost always financially motivated. As such, they will try to extract money from their victims in exchange for the supposed restoration of the locked data. The ransom note delivered as a text file named '_readme.txt' shows that the Oflg Ransomware follows this exact behavior. The message from the attackers states that victims who wish to recover their files will need to pay a ransom of $980. Establishing contact with the attackers within the first 72 hours of the malware infection will apparently result in a 50% discount on the initial ransom. The hackers provide two email addresses ('firstname.lastname@example.org' and 'email@example.com') and a Telegram account ('@datarestore') that affected users or organizations can message.
Of course, victims of ransomware attacks should consider their options carefully before trying to communicate with cybercriminals. After all, there are no guarantees that the hackers will be able to successfully recover all of the affected files. In addition, the victims may be unnecessarily exposing themselves to additional privacy or security risks.
