Threat Database Ransomware Qnty Ransomware

Qnty Ransomware

Cybercriminals are still unleashing more and more potent ransomware threats based on the STOP/Djvu malware family. One such example is the Qnty Ransomware threat that is practically identical to all the other variants from the family. However, this fact in no way means that its disruptive potential is any less potent. Qnty Ransomware's victims will lose their access to most of the files stored on the compromised device. This means that they will no longer be able to open any of their personal documents, images, photos, videos, etc., or important business projects, archives, database and more.

All encrypted files will have '.qnty' added to their original names. Victims will be left with a ransom note in the form of a text file dropped on the system's desktop. The file will be named '_readme.txt.'

Demands Overview

The note of the threat contains many of the same details found in other STOP/Djvu malware. Victims are told that to restore their data, they will need to pay a ransom to the attackers. In exchange, they will receive a decryptor software tool and the key necessary for the decryption of the files. The price of the ransom is initially set at $980 but the attackers provide a way for their victims to cut the amount in half to $490. Apparently, the only requirement is to contact the cybercriminals at any point during the first 72 hours of the Qnty Ransomware attack.

According to the message, users can use two email addresses for communication - 'support@sysmail.ch' and 'helprestoremanager@airmail.cc.' As part of their message, victims are told that they can attach one encrypted file. If the chosen file doesn't contain any important data, it will supposedly be unlocked and sent back for free.

The full text of the note is:
