Threat Database Ransomware Znto Ransomware

Znto Ransomware

The ceaseless flood of harmful STOP/Djvu Ransomware threats isn't slowing down. Cybercriminals continue to release more ransomware threats based on this malware family. An analysis performed by infosec experts has confirmed that the Znto Ransomware is such a variant. Despite not being entirely unique, the threat can lead to losing access to precious or essential data. The threat actors will use the locked documents, images, photos, databases, spreadsheets, etc., as leverage to extort money from their victims.

Once the Znto Ransomware has been fully established on the infected device, it will run its encryption routine. All of the targeted file types will be encrypted and have their names changed by the addition of '.znto' as a new file extension. The threat also will create a new text file named '_readme.txt' on the breached device. The file contains a ransom note detailing the demands of the cybercriminals responsible for spreading it.

According to the provided message, which is used by all of the STOP/Djvu family members, the threat actors are looking to blackmail their victims into paying them the sum of $980. Users who contact the two email addresses of the hackers - '' and '' will supposedly only have to pay half of this original amount. The threat actors also offer to decrypt a single file for free. Trusting the words of people responsible for malware attacks is extremely risky. Victims often pay the demanded money but receive nothing in return, or the provided decryption tool fails to recover all of the affected data.
