Another day, another Djvu ransomware variant that joins the endless host of similar clones in the same broader ransomware family.
The newest addition to the Djvu clone lineup is called the Errz ransomware, for the extension it appends after encrypted files.
The ransomware will scramble documents, media files and databases, then append the ".errz" extension after the original one. In this way, a file formerly called "skiing.mp4" will turn into "skiing.mp4.errz" once it has been fully encrypted and renamed.
The hackers operating this version of Djvu reuse the same ransom note template seen in many other recent Djvu clones. The initial demand is for just $490 in ransom, rising to double that amount if payment is not made within 72 hours of encryption. Naturally, there is no way to know if you would get a decryption tool from the hackers operating the ransomware.
The ransom note's full text goes as follows:
Don't worry, you can return all your files!
