Threat Database Ransomware Orkf Ransomware

Orkf Ransomware

The Orkf Ransomware is a variant belonging to the infamous STOP/Djvu malware family. Despite lacking any meaningful modifications or improvements when compared to the other threats from the family, Orkf's threatening capabilities are extremely harmful. If the threat manages to infect a targeted computer successfully, it will lock nearly all of the files stored there with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm.

In essence, the threat will take the locked data as a hostage and then extort its victims for money by promising to provide them with the decryption key needed to restore the files. Affected users will notice that each encrypted file will have '.orkf' appended to its name as a new extension. At the same time, a ransom note will be dropped on the compromised system. The message from the cybercriminals will be contained inside a text file named '_readme.txt.'

Ransom Note Overview

The ransom note delivered by the threat follows the typical STOP/Djvu format. It states that victims must pay a ransom of $980 but if they initiate contact in the first 72 hours of the malware attack, the demanded sum will be decreased by 50% to $490. To reach the hackers, affected users are told to send a message to the '' and '' email addresses. A single locked file can be attached to the message. The Orkf Ransomware hackers will then supposedly decrypt it and return it to the user.
