Threat Database Ransomware Vyia Ransomware

Vyia Ransomware

Cybercriminals have unleashed another destructive ransomware threat that is based on the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. Tracked by cybersecurity experts as the Vyia Ransomware, the threat is capable of rendering a long list of filetypes completely unusable via encryption, with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm. All victims will then be extorted for money if they want to restore access to their personal or work-related data.

What distinguishes this threat from the countless other variants from the STOP/Djvu Ransomware family is the file extension it uses to mark each encrypted file. Indeed, users will notice that nearly all of their files have had '.vyia' appended to their original names. The exact instructions of the attackers will be delivered to the victims as a text file named '_readme.txt.'
