Nnuz Ransomware


The Nnuz Ransomware is a threat, which sole purpose is to lock its victims data so they will not be able to reach it. The Nnuz Ransomware will impact crucial file types, including archives, databases, pictures, PDFs, documents, audio and video. Security researchers that analyzed the Nnuz Ransomware code, concluded that the threat is a variant from the STOP/Djvu family. The Nnuz Ransomware will then create a ransom note, which will take the form of a text file named _readme.txt. The people responsible for the Nnuz Ransowmare distribution also offer to decrypt 1 file for free, as a way to demonstrate that they can restore the damaged data.
