Infected Computers: 2
First Seen: August 30, 2022
OS(es) Affected: Windows

The Xbtl Ransomware targets the victim's data and leaves it in an unusable state. Like most ransomware threats, Xbtl Ransomware's encryption process is strong enough to make the restoration of the affected file types practically impossible without having the proper decryption keys. It should be pointed out that the threat is not original or unique ransomware. Instead, it is yet another variant created from the prolific STOP/Djvu malware family.

Following the established behavior of this threatening family, the Xbtl Ransomware also modifies the names of the locked files by appending a new file extension to them. In this case, '.xbtl' is added to the original names. Afterward, the threat will drop a text file named '_readme.txt' containing a ransom note.

The message left by the Xbtl Ransomware is largely consistent with those of other STOP/Djvu threats. It mentions that victims must pay a ransom of $980 if they want to receive a decryptor tool and the decryption keys in the hackers' possession. Affected users who contact the threat actors within the first 72 hours are promised preferential terms of having to pay only 50% of the original ransom amount. The '' and '' email addresses are provided in the note as ways to contact the threat actors. Malware victims should keep in mind that communication with cybercriminals is strongly discouraged, as it could lead to additional privacy or security risks.
