Ggeo Ransomware Asks for Modest Ransom

ransomware

Another week - another Djvu ransomware clone. The latest clone joining the Djvu family of ransomware variants is called the Ggeo ransomware.

Ggeo encrypts the majority of files on a targeted system and scrambled media, document, archive and database file types. Files that are essential to the operation of Windows are left untouched. Once encrypted, files receive the ".ggeo" extension appended to their names. This will make a file originally named "picture.jpg" transform into "picture.jpg.ggeo" once it has been encrypted.

The ransomware follows the ransom note pattern seen in all recent Djvu clones, asking for a modern ransom of $490 that increases to twice that sum if it's not paid within 72 hours.

The full text of the ransom note contained in the "_readme.txt" file is as follows:
