Threat Database Ransomware Wnlu Ransomware

Wnlu Ransomware

Infosec researchers have caught another variant from the notorious STOP/Djvu Ransomware family. The new threat is tracked as the Wnlu Ransomware and its destructive capabilities allow it to lock users out from their own files. The ransomware runs a strong encryption process with an uncrackable cryptographic algorithm. The numerous targeted file types - documents, PDFs, archives, databases, etc., will be rendered unusable completely.

Each locked file will have '.wnlu' appended to its original name as a new extension. The Wnlu Ransomware will drop a ransom note on the breached systems with instructions for its victims. The ransom-demanding message will be delivered via a newly-created text file named '_readme.txt.'
