Sglh Ransomware Description
The Sglh Ransomware is one of the latest variants that have been spawned from the prolific STOP/DJVU malware family. Although this particular threat doesn't deviate much from the standard behavior displayed by the STOP/DJVU family of threats, that doesn't make its destructive potential any less threatening.
If the Sglh Ransomware infiltrates a computer successfully, it will proceed to lock nearly all of the stored files with a potent cryptographic algorithm, rendering them inaccessible and unusable effectively. Most file types can be affected, including MS Office files, pictures, audio and video files, databases, PDFs, etc. The names of all encrypted files will be changed to include '.sglh' as a new extension. The criminals behind the Sglh Ransomware deliver a note with instructions for their victims through text files named '_readme.txt' that are dropped in every folder containing the encrypted data.
According to the note, affected users are expected to pay the sum of $980 to the hackers if they want to receive the decryption tool or key necessary for the restoration of their data. There also is an offer to slash that price in half to $490, but only if victims initiate contact within 72 hours of the ransomware infection. For that purpose, the hackers provide two email addresses - the main one is 'email@example.com,' while 'firstname.lastname@example.org' can be used as a reserve communication channel. A single file can be attached to the email message to be decrypted for free.
