There is no doubt that the file is encrypted and could no longer be accessed if it has the new filename extension, e.g. ID).{}.xtbl. Unfortunately, it might be impossible to decrypt those files because this threat uses the RSA-2048 encryption, which means that the private key is required for the decryption of files. It is known for cyber criminals only. Of course, you can buy this key from cyber criminals. We can assure you that you will be offered to purchase it if you do as the ransom note says, i.e. write an email to Paying money does not guarantee that you will have the decryptor in your hands. To be frank, cyber criminals have already fooled users many times, so we do not find the decision to make a payment very wise. What we recommend for you today is the deletion of the ransomware infection. Once you erase it fully, you should try to use several different free tools for recovering files. One of these tools might help you to recover, at least, several important files, so it is worth trying.

As you already know, the one and only goal of ransomware infections is to encrypt files and extort money from users. Ransomware is no exception, so it will encode all personal files and third-party applications it finds on the computer. Cyber criminals know that users might not immediately understand what has happened to their files, so they have programmed Ransomware to change the Wallpaper and create the Decryption instructions.txt file. If you expect to find information about the decryption of files here, you will be disappointed when you find out that it only contains one sentence:

All of your files are encrypted, to decrypt them write me to email: In case of no answer in 24 hours, write to

We know exactly what cyber criminals want from you, so we believe that you should not even bother contacting them if you are sure that you are not going to pay the money they demand. Yes, we are sure that you will receive instructions on how to make a payment if you write an email to cyber criminals. The decryptor is not a free tool, so you should consider carefully whether you really need it. In our opinion, there is no point in paying money they demand if you do not have any valuable files, or you have their copies and can easily recover them without the special tool. In such a case, you, of course, still need to delete the ransomware infection from your computer. If it happens that you do not have a backup of your files and need to gain access to those files badly, you should try to use the free decryptor or data recovery tool (you can download them from the Internet) after the deletion of this infection. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that you will recover your personal data successfully.

You need to know something about the distribution of ransomware infections if you do not want to allow any of them to enter your computer again. Ransomware infections are very prevalent these days, for example, you might allow Ransomware, Saraswati Ransomware, Ransomware, or a bunch of similar threats to enter the computer if you are not careful. All these ransomware infections that contain the email address in their names are known to be spread through spam emails. Their executable files come as attachments, and they often look harmless, so users often open them without fear of causing harm to their systems. Ransomware infections might be disseminated using other methods as well, so you need to be cautious all the time. According to our security specialists, every user who wishes to ensure the maximum protection needs to have a security tool installed on the computer as well. If you have a tool but it has still allowed Ransomware to enter the system, it means that it is ineffective, unreliable, and should be erased.

Even though your personal files will not be unlocked, you need to remove Ransomware ASAP. It is always a bad idea to keep malware on the computer. You can get rid of this threat manually or automatically. If you are going to delete it yourself, follow our step-by-step instructions. Those who decide to erase this infection automatically should acquire the reliable scanner first. You will be sure that you have really good software if you download and upgrade SpyHunter.
