  • Kcvp Ransomware (.kcvp encrypted files)
  • Uyit Ransomware (.uyit Files) - What is it? Keep Your Privacy Well

    The appearance of the .uyit files on your computer mean that you are attacked by Uyit ransomware. This malware is targeted at your wallet - it encrypts the files and then asks you to pay the ransom to decrypt them. Before the encryption, it makes several changes in your system to disable any security mechanisms and prevent the launch of antivirus programs.

    Uyit ransomware uses Salsa20 encryption. This cipher is not the most strong encryption but still cannot be decrypted in familiar ways.

    The changes Uyit virus does to the security of your system are pretty heavy. The malware disables the Microsoft Defender and alters some configurations, so you will not launch the installation files of most antivirus tools. It also changes the HOSTS file, leading to an inability to open some of the websites with ransomware removal and file decryption guides.

    Encryption process

    The Uyit ransomware uses the Salsa20 encryption algorithm. That is not the strongest method, but it still provides an overwhelming amount of possible decryption keys. To brute force the 78-digit number of keys, you need 3.5 unvigintillion years (1*10^65), even if you use the most powerful regular PC. Quantum computers can show a bit better results, but it is still too slow to get your files back while you are alive.

    The exact algorithm of encryption is next: malware scans each folder for the files it is able to encrypt. Then, when it finds the target, it makes a copy of your file, removes the original one, encrypts the copy and leaves it instead of the removed original. Such a procedure is done to prevent the situation when you have already opened the file, so ransomware is not able to read it because of the Windows restrictions. To each encrypted copy, the virus adds the specific extension - ".uyit". Then, ransomware creates a _readme.txt file in the folder where the encrypted file is located, and goes to the next folder.

    .UYIT Files

    Such an encryption method can be exploited for file recovery. Since the original file is deleted, you may try to recover it using the file recovery tools. The less time is passed - the bigger the chance to get your files back, so hurry up!

    Another specific moment that can help you to use the files even after the encryption is the fact that Uyit ransomware encrypts only the first 150KB of each file. Hence, you can try to run a big file, such as video or music, without the encryption. Similar feature also works with other ransomware families - Dharma, Conti and Makop encrypt the same 150KB.

    Ransom note: _readme.txt

    Ransom note is the same for the whole ransomware family. In fact, it is one of the main signs of to which family the certain ransomware belongs. Here is the typical note for STOP/Djvu family:
