Please continue reading our article to find out how you can avoid similar threats and eliminate this ransomware.
If you are infected with this beast, you must have opened a spam mail and saved its attachment to view it. This is exactly how most ransomware infections end up on victims' computers. However, you should be aware that it is also possible to get infected by simply opening a spam mail. This means that you might not even need to download and run the attached malicious file. In other words, one single click can bring this nightmare to your computer. This is why it is so vital that you do not open any questionable or random-looking e-mails, let alone try to view their attachments. As a matter of fact, it is quite easy to be fooled by such a spam mail. These criminals may take advantage of your curiosity and fear combined to push you to want to open this mail.
Many users fall for this unfortunately and end up with their precious files lost for good. By looking at the sender you may not even spot that this is a spam; although, you may think that this mail may not relate to you or it is a mistake. Yet, when you see the subject, you may start wondering and out of curiosity or fear, you will quite likely want to see its content. This subject can be anything that could make you feel like this, such as an overdue parking fine or speeding ticket, a notification from a state authority, a warning of possible misuse of your credit card, and so on. Do you think you could resist this kind of temptation? Well, you had better. Because one single click could cost you all your important files. You need to understand that when you finally delete Loveserver Ransomware, it will not bring your files back from encryption.
Most ransomware programs use the AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt your files. This one, however, uses an unknown algorithm; therefore, there is less chance that there will ever be a free tool that you could use to recover your files. While most other similar infections append a unique extension to your file names, this ransomware deletes the affected files from their original location and constructs one huge file that contains all your encrypted files. This file is called "BACKUP DONT DELETE" for a reason obviously. This seems to be an archive of some sort, such as .zip and .rar, but it is hard to tell because this file has no extension.
This malware has a rather short ransom note that is stored in a text file called "R-E-A-D-M-E.txt" and dropped onto your desktop. This file simply informs you in plain and broken English that your files have been encrypted and you have to send an e-mail with your IP address to email@example.com. You will get a reply with all the details you need to know to be able to make the transfer to these criminals. We have no information about the amount of the ransom fee, but it could be anything from below one hundred up to one thousand dollars worth of Bitcoins. Before even thinking of paying, you should first consider whether your old documents and pictures are worth this much at all. We do not advise you to pay these crooks, though, but this is really your call. We believe that your computer will only be safe again if you delete Loveserver Ransomware ASAP.
This time we do not really suggest that you try to remove this dangerous threat manually because it is possible that you might leave some leftovers on your system. We have prepared a guide for you that you can find below this article, but this is a rather general way to eliminate ransomware infections. If you would like to be certain that you have cleaned your computer of this and any other potential threats, we recommend that you use a reliable malware remover, such as SpyHunter or any other you may know or prefer. With such a security tool, your virtual life will be so much more secure that you will not even know why you have never tried it before. But even if you decide to use such software, it is still essential that you update all your drivers and programs regularly for best results in the fight against malware infections.
