The Eijy ransomware is a newly discovered strain of file-encrypting malware. It belongs to the family of Djvu ransomware clones, which is growing by a dozen every couple of weeks.
Eijy will act like most other strains of ransomware - it will encrypt databases, media files and documents, as well as archive files. Once encrypted the files receive the ".eijy" extension appended after their original one, hence the name of the malware.
This means that a file that was formerly called "document.docx" will transform into "document.docx.eijy" once it has been encrypted by the ransomware.
The ransom note is placed in a plain text file called "_readme.txt", just like with all other Djvu clones.
The full text of the note follows the template all recent Djvu variants use and goes as follows:
