Cdcc ransomware is file-encrypting malware from the Djvu/STOP ransomware family. It’s a dangerous piece of malware that essentially takes personal files hostage. Once files are encrypted, they will be very difficult to recover without a backup.



As soon as the ransomware is initiated, it will start encrypting files. It mainly targets personal files like documents, photos, videos, etc. While the ransomware encrypts files, it shows a fake Windows update window to distract users. Once it’s done, all encrypted files will have a .cdcc extension added to them. For example, an encrypted text.txt file would become text.txt.cdcc. You will not be able to open these files unless you first use a decryptor on them.

The ransomware drops a _readme.txt ransom note in all folders that have encrypted files. The note explains that files have been encrypted and that a decryptor is necessary to decrypt them. Unfortunately, that is mostly true. A decryptor is necessary to decrypt the files.

According to the note, to get the decryptor, users need to pay $1999 to the malware operators. Supposedly, there’s a 50% discount available for users who make contact within 72 hours.

When it comes to ransomware, paying the ransom is never recommended. Mainly because it does not guarantee that a decryptor will be sent. If you’re considering paying the ransom, you need to keep in mind that you are dealing with cybercriminals. There is nothing to force them to keep their end of the deal after you pay. Furthermore, if you pay, your money would be used to finance future criminal activities.

If you have a backup of your files, you can connect to it and start file recovery as soon as you remove Cdcc ransomware from your computer. To avoid additional damage, use an anti-malware program to delete Cdcc ransomware. Once the ransomware has been fully removed, you can safely connect to your backup.

For users with no backup, file recovery will be much more difficult, if not impossible. The only option is to wait for a free decryptor to become available. There currently is a free Djvu/STOP ransomware decryptor by Emsisoft but it will not work on newer Djvu versions because they use online keys to encrypt files, which means that all users have unique keys. Without those keys, a decryptor is unlikely.

If a decryptor does get released in the future, it would become available on NoMoreRansom. If you cannot find a decryptor on that site, it’s unlikely that you’ll find it anywhere else.

How did ransomware enter your computer?

Ransomware is distributed via email attachments, torrents, malicious ads and links, etc., Users who have bad browsing habits are much more likely to pick up malware because they engage in riskier activities. To avoid future malware infections, we strongly recommend becoming familiar with how malware is distributed and developing better browsing habits.

Ransomware is commonly spread via email attachments. Malicious actors launch malicious spam campaigns and target hundreds, if not thousands, of users with the same generic email that contains a malicious attachment. When users open the file, they initiate the malware on their devices.

Because these emails target a lot of users at the same time, they are very generic and quite easy to recognize as malicious. Senders claim to be from legitimate companies, supposedly sending a document that needs to be urgently reviewed. Commonly, malicious senders pretend to be from parcel delivery companies, government agencies, the tax office, etc. But what often gives these emails away is grammar/spelling mistakes. The mistakes are usually very glaring. You would never find such mistakes in legitimate emails sent by legitimate companies.

Another sign of a malicious email is a sender who should know your name using generic words like User, Member, Customer, etc., to address you. Usually, when senders email users with important business, they address users by name because it looks more professional but also personal. Malicious senders use generic words for several reasons. For one, they send the same email to hundreds of users. They also do not have access to users’ personal information besides the email address.

As a precaution, we always recommend scanning all unsolicited email attachments with anti-malware software or VirusTotal before opening them. These scans will ensure that you won’t open anything harmful to your computer.

Malware is also often found on poorly regulated torrent sites, particularly in torrents for popular movies, TV series, and video games. So using torrents to obtain copyrighted content is not only content theft but also dangerous for the computer.
