Threat Database Ransomware Qqqr Ransomware

Qqqr Ransomware

The Qqqr Ransomware is a powerful malware threat aiming to take the data of its victims as a hostage. Malware threats classified as ransomware are typically equipped with encryption routines that utilize military-grade cryptographic algorithms. This allows the threats to lock the vast majority of files found on the breached device and render them unusable. The Qqqr Ransomware is not an exception and, despite being another variant from the STOP/Djvu family, its destructive capabilities should not be underestimated.

During its encryption process, Qqqr will mark all affected files by modifying their original names. More specifically, the threat will append '.qqqr' as a new file extension. When it has finished locking all target file types, the malware proceeds to drop a file carrying a ransom note with instructions for the victim. This newly-created is named '_readme.txt.'

Qqqr Ransomware's Demands

The ransom note left by Qqqr is virtually identical to the messages used by the other variants from this family. It states that affected users will need to pay a ransom of $980 if they want to receive the software tool and decryption key from the cybercriminals. However, if victims establish contact within the first 72 hours of the attack, the demanded ransom will be reduced by 50% to $490. As part of their messages, users also may send one encrypted file that the hackers promise to unlock and return absolutely for free, as a demonstration of their ability to revert all files to their original states.
