V3JS Ransomware Description
The V3JS Ransomware is a threatening malware that can lock users out of their own computers. The V3JS Ransomware exploits a powerful encryption algorithm to render nearly all of the files present on the compromised devices inaccessible and unusable. Indeed, the consequences could be dire if the affected data had significant personal value or is related to important work projects. The main targets of the V3JS Ransomware appear to be users from Poland, as the ransom note delivered by the threat is written in Polish. The criminals are not picky, though, and they have included an English translation.
Unlike most ransomware threats, the V3JS Ransomware does not change the names of the files it encrypts in any way. This means that there is no new extension attached to the files. As for the ransom note, it is delivered in an interactive pop-up window. There the criminals state that they demand the sum of 40 Euros paid in Bitcoin to be sent to their cryptocurrency wallet address. The pop-up window includes a 'DECRYPT FILES' button and a countdown timer placed right below it. There is no additional information about what will happen when the timer runs out.
The original text of the note displayed in V3JS Rasnomware's pop-up window is:
