Threat Database Ransomware Vtym Ransomware

Vtym Ransomware

After analyzing the Vtym Ransomware threat, cybersecurity researchers have come to the conclusion that is a variant belonging to the notorious STOP/Djvu malware family. Although the threat is mostly identical to other variants from the family, this is not a sign that its destructive capacity is less potent. On the contrary, if the Vtym Ransomware manages to infiltrate the targeted computers successfully, it will proceed to encrypt nearly all of the data stored there. Users will lose their access to nearly all of the PDFs, documents, archives, databases, and more, found on the breached device.

During its encryption process, the threat also will mark each locked file by changing the file's original name. Indeed, victims of the threat will notice that their files now carry the '.vtym' extension. In addition, a new text file will be created on the computer system. This file named '_readme.txt' will carry a ransom note with instructions from the attackers.

Ransom Note's Details

The note dropped by the Vtym Ransomware is effectively identical to the ones observed with other STOP/Djvu threats. It states that the hackers demand to be paid a ransom of $980 if they are to assist in the restoration of the locked files by sending a decryption tool and key. However, victims can lower that price by 50% if they contact the attackers at any point during the first 72 hours of the Vtym infection.

According to the ransom-demanding message, two email addresses can be utilized as communication channels. The main one is '' while '' is relegated to a backup address. Affected users can attach one file to their message that the attackers are supposedly going to decrypt and return for absolutely free.
