.Djvu Virus File Ransomware

This page aims to help you remove .Djvu Ransomware for free. Our instructions also cover how any .Djvu file can be recovered.

Ransomware cryptoviruses like the malicious .Djvu can be insidious pieces of malware as you pretty much never know about their presence on the computer until their task has been completed and now you are left to deal with the unpleasant consequences of the infection, which in this case are encrypted personal files and a ransom-demanding note on the Desktop of your computer that states you have to pay the hackers a certain sum of money if you want to make your data accessible once again. So, what can you do in such a situation assuming that you really need the locked up files as they are important to you. Because, in case the said files aren’t that valuable and you don’t mind that much losing them, there are actually many ways to remove the infection itself and make your PC clean again. But, again, let’s assume that the encrypted data is important to you and you need it back – what are you options then if a malware like .Djvu  Ransomware has infected your computer and locked-up your files?

Well, the first and probably most obvious one is paying the money that the blackmailers want of you and hope that everything will go smooth afterwards. While this may sound tempting especially if the requested sum isn’t too high, you must understand that this isn’t the same as buying something from the store in the sense that giving your money to the hackers doesn’t necessarily mean you will get anything in return, in this case, the decryption key for your files. You can still try it but don’t be surprised if you eventually find out that you have simply wasted a good few hundreds without really getting any of your files unlocked. Because of this, what we would normally advise our readers with Ransomware like .Djvu on their computers is to try to remove the malware using our removal guide and then try out some of the suggested alternative data recovery options.

    How to Decrypt .Djvu files

    We have a comprehensive (and daily updated) guide on how to decrypt your files. Check it out here.

    Regarding data recovery

    There are different things that can be tried when it comes to getting your files back after a Ransomware attack from a cryptovirus like .Djvu. Unfortunately, no method can guarantee full recovery in all cases. As you can see, even paying the money the hackers require of you is still not a surefire way of unlocking your files (and you can also lose quite a lot of money in the process). Still, we have done our best to include the most popular methods and the ones that have the highest success rate in side a separate section of the removal guide so that you can use them to hopefully restore some of your data. Just remember to first eliminate .Djvu so that it can’t lock any newly created files in your system or any of the files you may manage to unlock. Also, be sure to always backup new data you have on your PC which you don’t want to lose as this really is one of the most effective and easy to take precautions against potential Ransomware attacks.


    Name .Djvu
    Type Ransomware
    Danger Level High (Ransomware is by far the worst threat you can encounter)
    Symptoms There may be some RAM and/or CPU spikes while the cryptovirus is encrypting your data but not much else that could be seen as a potential symptom.
    Distribution Method The methods used to distribute Ransomware vary from spam messages and malicious ads to pirated software downloads and Trojan backdoor infections.

    • Hello, is it safe to keep the encrypted files on my pc or other pcs? i scanned them and they were safe.. will there ever be a decryptor for this ransomware? my files end in .gero and the ransom note is named _readme. Thanks

      • It is safe to keep the encrypted files – they aren’t infectious. As for the release of a decryptor, we cannot know if and when one would be released for this particular Ransomware.

    • Hello,
      I’am Saad. My PC got infected with .meka extension and it’s certainly a DJVU ransomware .
