WHAT IS UUDJVU RANSOMWARE AND HOW TO REMOVE UUDJVU RANSOMWARE?

WHAT IS UUDJVU RANSOMWARE?

Uudjvu is a high-risk virus or ransomware that belongs to the STOP malware family. It is a new version of file-encrypting ransomware that locks the victim’s file using an algorithm or cryptography. Mainly affecting and running on the Windows operating system, this ransomware adds a uudjvu file marker at the end of your encrypted file which locks data or the whole server using AES/RSA ciphers. This makes it almost impossible for the user to open or make use of his files.

You will also find some other versions of this kind of ransomware, such as Djvu viruses or Djvuq ransomware. These are different because they typically show a popup window that asks you to login using your account name and password. These look similar to The Pirate Bay login window, which is why these viruses are also referred to as the PirateHumanSetup ransomware.

HOW DOES THE UUDJVU RANSOMWARE SPREAD?

The uudjvu virus is distributed through spam emails, often from suspicious senders, which usually contain links or other attachments to malicious websites. Cybercriminals compose the emails in such a way that they appear to closely resemble the content of the actual websites. Building this level of trust increases the likelihood of people like us clicking on it and opening it which allows the malware to enter your system and corrupt your files. This is why it is important for one to simply delete all suspicious emails, especially if they are not familiar with the sender. Another way of the transmission of this ransomware is through infected payloads, like malicious documents such as presentations, spreadsheets, and databases. Uudjvu may also spread through the inclusion of codes in application installers and fake user profiles.

WHAT DOES UUDJVU DO?

Uudjvu can disable all the programs on your system, including your antivirus software such as Norton.com/setup. It alters the entries and adds new keys to the Windows registry, installs many unwanted files and programs and allows processes within the system to keep running in the background, and then displays a window that leads to a ransom payment system. This also causes the leakage of sensitive information from the user’s computer system. The main goal of this ransomware is to steal your credentials as soon as you try to log in.

HOW TO REMOVE UUDJVU RANSOMWARE?

It is possible to remove UUDJVU ransomware by using Antivirus software such as Norton.com/setup along with some additional tools like Reimage and Malwarebytes. An antivirus program like www.Norton.com/setup Antivirus can scan the whole system thoroughly and detect if there are any corrupted files. Norton.com/setup would then remove them once and for all. To make sure the virus is detected permanently, double-check the system by scanning your PC once again using Norton.com/setup Antivirus’ manual scanning feature.
