Threat Database Ransomware PPHG Ransomware

PPHG Ransomware

The PPHG Ransomware has been identified as being yet another addition to the nefarious STOP/Djvu family of ransomware threats. Although it may be considered a variant largely identical to the other threats of this family, the strong encryption algorithm of the PPHG Ransomware ensures that it can do significant damage to the computer systems it infects.

Indeed, affected users will find themselves completely locked out from accessing or using nearly all of the files stored on the breached devices. PPHG can lock documents, images, audio and video files, archived, database and more. All encrypted files will have '.pphg' appended to their names. In addition, the threat will create a text file named '_readme.txt' on the compromised system. This file will carry a ransom note detailing the demands of the attackers.

Ransom Note's Overview

Reading the message in the file left by PPHG Ransomware reveals that the attackers want to be paid a ransom of exactly $980. According to the note, they will then send back a software tool and the decryption key necessary for the restoration of the locked data. The typical offer to reduce the price of the ransom by half observed in other STOP/Djvu threats also is present. Apparently, the only requirement is for the victims of the threat to initiate communication with the cybercriminals within 72-hours following the ransomware attack. Furthermore, as part of their message, victims can attach a single encrypted file to be unlocked for free.

The entire note left by PPHG Ransomware is:
