How does Andrzej Dupa Ransomware work?

There are many infections similar to Andrzej Dupa Ransomware, including Autotron Ransomware, Ransomware, or Nmcrypt Ransomware – all of which require removal – but none of them compare in similarity to Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware. Our research team reports that the infection discussed in this report is a new variant of the said ransomware. Based on the report we have on this threat, it is believed that the new variant could corrupt system files, which is not common for this kind of malware, considering that it cannot operate on a system that starts crashing or running disorderly. This indicates that this malware might have been created by amateurs or that it was not completed appropriately. In fact, it is not known if Andrzej Dupa Ransomware spreads at this point in time. All in all, this infection exists, and so we need to analyze and discuss it. After all, it can encrypt files and demand a ransom in a highly aggressive manner. First, it needs to find its way into the operating system, and it can do that using corrupted spam emails, malicious downloaders, and by exploiting various system vulnerabilities.

When the files are encrypted, the “.ZaszyfrowanePliki” extension is added to their names. This extension translates to “Encrypted Files,” and it is also the name of the ransom note file, “ZaszyfrowanePliki.txt.” This one should have copies all over your computer, and you should find it placed in folders that have corrupted files within. The purpose of the ransom note within the TXT file is to make you contact the creator(s) of Andrzej Dupa Ransomware, as well as to pay the ransom. Our research team informs that there are two different versions of this note. In one of them, the victim is urged to pay a ransom of $100 in Bitcoins to the 1PjzRWy213gxLoJsvKVAivQPEFfeD1mCfh Bitcoin Wallet, as well as to email cyber crooks at The second version of the ransom note simply orders to email cyber criminals for further instructions. We do not recommend following the steps introduced to you by cyber crooks because they do not have your best intentions in mind. All they want is your money, and they are likely to ignore you after they get it.
