The Qqjj Ransomware is classified as a malware variant from the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. Although the threat doesn't exhibit any major deviation from the typical behavior of this malicious family, the Qqjj Ransomware has retained the destructive capabilities observed in the STOP/Djvu variants, as it targets numerous file types and renders them unusable via a strong encryption process.
Victims will lose their access to any documents, archives, databases, photos, images, PDFs, etc., stored on the infected devices. In addition, each affected file will be marked by having '.qqjj' added to its original name. Finally, the threat will drop a text file named '_readme.txt' on the system. Inside the file, victims will find a ransom note with instructions.
The delivered message states that the operators of the Qqjj Ransomware want to be paid a ransom of $980. In exchange, the hackers 'promise' to send back a decryptor tool and the required decryption keys. To lure users into reaching out to them, the cybercriminals also promise to lower the amount of the ransom by 50% for all victims who message them within the first 72 hours of the attack. The note leaves two email addresses that could be used for communication. The main address is 'firstname.lastname@example.org,' while 'email@example.com' is described as a reserve email.
