What is a .DJVUS file?

A file that ends in .djvus is a file that has been locked by a specific kind of harmful computer program called STOP Djvus ransomware. This means the file, whether it was originally a text document, picture, video, or another type, has been changed by this ransomware so that you can't open or use it like you normally would. The ransomware does this by scrambling the information in the file and then adding ".djvus" to the end of the file's name. For example, a document that used to be called "report.docx" would be renamed to "report.docx.djvus" after the ransomware attacks it.

To deal with files that have been affected by this ransomware, there is a specific tool called Emsisoft Decryptor for STOP Djvu. This program is designed to help unlock the files that have been encrypted by the STOP Djvus ransomware, although success can vary depending on the ransomware version and other factors.

STOP Djvus ransomware is part of a larger group of harmful software known as STOP ransomware. This particular version started causing problems for computer users around the end of 2018. It works by locking up your files and then leaving a note, usually named "_readme.txt", in any folder that has files the ransomware has locked. This note typically asks for money in exchange for unlocking the files.

Computers usually get infected by this ransomware through downloading and installing software that seems safe but is actually harmful. These can be programs that are bundled with unwanted software, including adware and malware, which then secretly install the ransomware on your computer. So, if you've recently downloaded something from a source that wasn't completely trustworthy, that might be how the ransomware got onto your computer.
