Vvyu Ransomware Joins Ranks of Djvu Clones

A new ransomware variant has been spotted in the wild, this time it is another Djvu clone, named the Vvyu ransomware.

Vvyu does absolutely nothing to set itself apart from other Djvu clones. It will encrypt files, affecting media, document, archive and database file types. Encrypted files will receive the ".vvyu" extension appended past their original one.
