Uyro is another file-encryptor developed and spread by the STOP/Djvu family. It copies all traits and capabilities of older versions issues by the STOP/Djvu group. The virus encrypts PC-stored data and demands crypto ransom for unique decryption software that will decipher this data. Most often, malware like Uyro targets vital data like images, music, videos, and documents containing important information. After detecting such files, the ransomware program will generate unique ciphers and write them over the files to prevent users from accessing them. Apart from this, ransomware infections also append new extensions to highlight the encrypted data. In the case of Uyro Ransomware, users will see their data changed with the .uyro extension. This means a regular file like
1.pdfwill change its look to something like this
1.pdf.uyro. After this, Uyro developers create a text note called _readme.txt that explain decryption instruction. Note that all of these changes happen in a blink of an eye, so it is impossible to track which part of encryption occurred first. This is what you can see written inside the text note with ransom demands.
