Wrui Ransomware Description
The STOP/Djvu Ransomware family has remained popular among cybercriminal circles incredibly, and new ransomware variants belonging to the STOP/Djvu Ransomware are still being unleashed in the wild. One of the latest to be observed by the infosec community is a threat called Wrui Ransomware. Although it operates as a simple variant without any major improvements or deviations from the established formula, the Wrui Ransomware is still capable of causing a massive amount of damage to any infected computer system.
Users affected by the threat will notice that nearly all of their files have become inaccessible and unusable suddenly. The only ones that may have been spared are the files for critical system processes that would have otherwise caused the whole system to become unstable. The goal of the hackers is to extort their victims for money in exchange for the decryption key and software that could potentially restore the locked data.
Whenever the Wrui Ransomware encrypts a file, it would append '.wrui' to that file's original name as a new extension. Meanwhile, the threat also will deliver a ransom note with instructions for its victims. The note will be contained inside text files named '_readme.txt.' According to the message from the hackers, they expect to receive the sum of $980 if they are to help the affected users. As close to $1000 dollars is a sizable amount of money that not everyone has just laying around, the hackers also offer to slash the ransom in half to $490 if they receive communication from their victims within the first 72 hours after the ransomware infection. Two email addresses are provided for that purpose - the main email is 'firstname.lastname@example.org' while the reserve address is 'email@example.com.' Victims of Wrui Ransomware are allowed to attach a single non-important file to their email message that will be decrypted for free.
