How to remove Vehu Ransomware and decrypt .vehu files

Vehu Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts files on a computer and demands a ransom in exchange for decrypting them. It typically infects computers through phishing emails, malicious websites, or software vulnerabilities.

When Vehu Ransomware infects a computer, it adds the extension “.vehu” to encrypted files. It uses strong encryption algorithms, such as AES or RSA, to lock the files and make them inaccessible without the decryption key.

The ransom note created by Vehu Ransomware is usually named “README.txt” or “HOW_TO_DECRYPT.txt” and is placed on the desktop or in folders containing encrypted files. The note provides instructions on how to pay the ransom and receive the decryption key.

Currently, there is no specific decryption tool available for Vehu Ransomware. However, users affected by this ransomware may try using the Emsisoft Stop Djvu Decryptor, a tool that can decrypt some variants of the Djvu ransomware, which Vehu Ransomware is based on.

To decrypt .vehu files without a decryption tool, users may try restoring encrypted files from backups, using shadow copies, or seeking assistance from cybersecurity professionals. It is important to avoid paying the ransom as there is no guarantee that the cybercriminals will provide the decryption key or that the files will be successfully decrypted.
