Urnb Ransomware Description
Urnb is one of the latest ransomware threats to be spawned from the prolific STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. Despite being just a variant without any meaningful improvements over the typical STOP/Djvu Ransomware threat, Urnb is still capable of causing severe damage to any system it manages to infect. The encryption routine employing an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm ensures that the files locked by the threat cannot be restored with the decryption key possessed by the hackers.
Users affected by the Urnb Ransomware will notice that nearly all of their files have become unusable, and their original filenames have been changed to now include '.urnb' as a new extension. After the encryption process has been completed, Urnb will proceed to deliver its ransom note with instructions for the victims. The note will be dropped in the form of text files named '_readme.txt.'
Urnb Ransomware's victims are told that they will have to pay the sum of $980 to the cybercriminals to receive the decryption key and software. Close to 1000 dollars is not a small sum that anyone can just fork over. The hackers must also have realized this fact as they attempt to tempt their victims into establishing contact by offering to slash the price in half to $490 if they receive a message within the first 72 hours after the Urnb Ransomware infection. Two email addresses are provided as communication channels - the main one is 'email@example.com' while the reserve address is 'firstname.lastname@example.org.' Affected users are told that they can attach a single non-important file (no spreadsheets, databases, etc.) to the email message that will then be decrypted for free.
