If you can’t open your images, documents, or data and see the .wdlo extension on them, your computer is surely infected with Wdlo ransomware. It belongs to STOP/Djvu ransomware family
Wdlo ransomware ciphers personal files located on the victim’s PC with the extension “.wdlo” and after that leaves the ransom note in each folder which contains encrypted files. The instructions are placed on the victim’s desktop in the “readme.txt” file. Its activity is pretty much comparable to other samples of the same ransomware family: Pphg, Ssoi, Hfgd.

Wdlo is file-encrypting ransomware that prevents normal access to your text files, Excel tables, videos and images by encrypting them. It marks the encrypted files with the “.wdlo” extension. Then Wdlo ransomware adds a ransom note (readme.txt) to each folder. In it, you can see the instructions to pay the ransom ($490-$980 in Bitcoin) to a specified Bitcoin address. The AES-256 or RSA-1028 cipher it uses to cipher the documents is not decryptable with modern computers. Even quantum computers that currently exist will likely spend hundreds of years to get the decryption key.
How dangerous is the Wdlo ransomware?
When Wdlo ransomware appears in your system, it will scan your computer for photos, videos, and important documents. It [ciphers all widespread file formats- .psd, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .pdf, .jpeg, .png, et cetera. When these files are located, the ransomware will encrypt them and change their extension to “.wdlo” to ensure that you understand what happened.

How did the Wdlo ransomware get on my computer?
The Wdlo ransomware spreads by posting links to download hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all buzz themes which can be chosen to spread ransomware. New games releases, new popular films – Wdlo creators make everything to get their victims on that. One of the most favored tactics these criminals apply is one-day websites with torrent downloading links. Nevertheless, using the current trends is not the only manner these burglars use. Methods that have already become standard, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise usual for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.
Preventing this ransomware does not require a lot of effort. Using the standard rules of PC hygiene will considerably decrease all risks. Keep in mind that launching all files you get on e-mail is not a great option. Even worse case is to enable macros in Microsoft Office documents. But it is better to prevent the malware intrusion at the moment when you have only opened the e-mail message. Examining the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can anticipate, and when you see things like “firstname.lastname@example.org”– it is likely a genuine email. Meanwhile, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipment alert, but uses the email address of “email@example.com”– must make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.
Outlaw sources of various digital things need some additional explanation. Violating copyright regulation surely exposes you to the chance of being fined. However, utilizing torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to different malware. Nobody can oversee anonymous individuals that start the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the website with pirated software.
