Threat Database Ransomware Vvwq Ransomware

Attackers can deploy the Vvwq Ransomware to breached devices and execute it to encrypt any documents, PDFs, archives, databases, photos and other file types stored on the system. In the vast majority of cases, the utilized cryptographic algorithm makes the restoration of the locked files without having the proper decryption keys practically impossible.

The file is dropped by the Vvwq Ransomware as a way to deliver a ransom note with instructions from the cybercriminals.
