This is a type of malicious software that threatens to delete or publish the victim’s data unless a ransom is paid. Shujin is a Japanese word that means “captive.” This type of ransomware is also known as doxware or blackmailware.


Shujin Ransomware was first discovered in 2016. It is distributed through email attachments and exploits kits. When the ransomware infects a computer, it encrypts the victim’s files and appends the “. Shujin” extension to them. It then displays a ransom note that instructs the victim on how to pay the ransom and decrypt their files.


Ransom payment instructions may vary depending on the version of Shujin Ransomware. Some variants demand payment in Bitcoin, while others request a ransom in Japanese Yen.


The amount of the ransom demanded also varies but is typically between 1 and 5 Bitcoin. Shujin uses strong encryption, making it difficult to decrypt files without paying the ransom. However, some victims have been able to successfully recover their data without paying by using data recovery software.

How do I know that my computer is infected with ransomware?

There are several ways to tell if your computer has been infected with Shujin. One way is to look for the “. Shujin” extension appended to your files. You may also see a ransom note on your desktop or in your documents folder that contains instructions on how to pay the ransom.


This ransomware may also disable your antivirus software and prevent you from accessing certain websites, including security-related websites. If you suspect that your computer is infected, you should run a malware scan with a reliable security program.

How can I protect my computer?

There are several things you can do to protect your computer from Shujin and other types of malware. One is to install a reliable security program and keep it up-to-date. You should also avoid opening email attachments from unknown senders and be cautious about clicking on links in emails and on websites.


It’s also a good idea to create regular backups of your important files so that you can recover them if your computer is infected with ransomware. You can store your backups on an external hard drive, USB flash drive, or online storage service. File recovery software may also be able to help you recover your data if your computer is infected.

How to remove Shujin from my computer?

You should remove Shujin as soon as possible. You can use a security program to scan for and remove the malware. If you cannot access your security program or it will not run, you can try using a free malicious software removal tool.


You can also try to remove Shujin manually. However, this is a complex process, and we recommend that only experienced users attempt it. If you do not know what you are doing, you could accidentally delete important system files and make your computer unusable.

Public decryption tool

There is currently no public decryption tool available for Shujin Ransomware. However, some victims have been able to successfully recover their data without paying the ransom by using data recovery software.

SalvageData data recovery software is recommended by Shujin Ransomware victims as a possible solution.

Paying the ransom

Paying the ransom is not recommended as it does not guarantee that your files will be decrypted. In addition, by paying the ransom, you are supporting the activities of cybercriminals.


If you decide to pay the ransom, we recommend that you use a Bitcoin wallet that cannot be traced back to you. You should also avoid using your personal credit card as some victims have reported that they stole their credit card information after paying the ransom.

I have paid the ransom, but my files are still encrypted. What should I do?

If you have paid the ransom but your files are still encrypted, you should contact the Shujin Ransomware support team and request a refund. You should also run a malware scan on your computer to check for other infections.

I think my computer is infected with Shujin, but I don’t have any important files. Should I pay the ransom?

No, you should not pay the ransom if you do not have any important files on your computer. Instead, you should run a malware scan to check for other infections and then reformat your hard drive.
