Threat Database Ransomware Pozd Ransomware

Pozd Ransomware

The Pozd Ransomware is not a unique malware threat. Analysis by infosec researchers has revealed that it is another variant based on the popularity among cybercriminals of the STOP/Djvu ransomware strain. However, the fact that it lacks any meaningful modification doesn't make the threat any less unsafe. The Pozd Ransomware encryption capabilities can impact a diverse range of file types - from documents and photos to archives and databases. All target files will have '.pozd' attached to their original names and will be left in an inaccessible state.

Victims of the Pozd Ransomware should be warned that their computers may have been infected with additional malware threats, as well. Cybercriminals delivering STOP/Djvu variants have been observed to drop info-stealers on the infected devices, as well. Two such tools are the Vidar Stealer and the RedLine Stealer.

The ransom note delivering the instructions of Pozd Ransowmare's criminal operators will be dropped on the breached computers as a text file named '_readme.txt.' The text of the message follows the typical STOP/Djvu pattern. The attackers try to extort the sum of $980 from their victims. However, the offer to reduce the price of the ransom by 50% to those victims who establish contact within the first 72 hours of the malware infections also is mentioned. Victims also can send one chosen file to be decrypted for free, with the only listed requirement being that the file doesn't contain any important data. The email addresses found in the note are '' and ''
