Vvyu Ransomware

Vvyu Ransomware Description

Cybercriminals have released another threatening ransomware Trojan. Named the Vvyu Ransomware, it is based on the STOP/Djvu family of malware threats. Ransomware infections are designed to lock the data of their victim specifically. Numerous file types, such as documents, images, photos, PDFs, archives, databases, and more will be subjected to encryption via a military-grade cryptographic algorithm and left in an unusable state. The goal of the cybercriminals is to then extort the affected victims for money in exchange for the promise of assisting in the restoration of the data.

When it comes to Vvyu specifically, the threat appends '.vvyu' as a new extension to the files it locks. Affected users also will notice that a new text file has appeared on the breached device. Named '_readme.txt,' the file contains a ransom note with instructions for the victim. Vvyu's operators state that they want to be paid a ransom of $980. However, if the victims contact them within the first 72 hours, the size of the ransom will be reduced by 50%. The note mentions two email addresses that could be used as communication channels. The main email is 'support@bestyourmail.ch' while 'datarestorehelp@airmail.cc' acts as a reserve address.
