The Oxva Ransomware targets the data of its victims and locks it via an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm. In the vast majority of cases, ransomware threats are used in financially-motivated attack operations. The cybercriminals seek to extort money from the affected individual users or corporate entities by promising assistance with the restoration of the encrypted files, but only after being paid a certain ransom amount.
When it comes to the Oxva Ransomware, in particular, infosec researchers have confirmed that it belongs to the STOP/Djvu malware family. When the threat encrypts a file, it also appends '.oxva' to the file's original name. Victims will notice that the threat has created a new text file on the infected devices. The file is typically named '_readme.txt' and its role is to deliver a ransom note with instructions to the impacted users or companies.
The Oxva Ransomware's message indicates that the threat mostly targets individual users. Its operators demand to be paid exactly $980, after which they will supposedly send a decryptor tool and the required decryption keys to their victims. Users who initiate communication with the hackers within the first 72 hours are promised a discount of 50%. According to the ransom note, two email addresses (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org), as well as a Telegram account (@datarestore), can be used for this purpose.
