The suspicious Haters Ransomware might still be in development, but we need to discuss it so that you can take measures to prevent this malware from slithering into your operating system. The purpose of this threat, of course, is to encrypt your files. While it is possible to decrypt files using a special key in this stage of the infection, we cannot guarantee that this will be the case in the future as well. It is very possible that this ransomware will be upgraded and that cyber criminals will be able to push you into paying huge ransom fees. At the moment, that is not even a demand, which is good news. Overall, whether or not this ransomware has invaded your operating system, we recommend reading this report to learn what you need to do. We discuss the removal of Haters Ransomware, as well as the security measures that you need to take in order to protect your operating system and your personal data.
According to the researchers working in our internal lab, Haters Ransomware might spread via spam emails. That is not a surprise, considering that most ransomware threats are distributed in the exact same manner. A few of them include Rans0mlocked Ransomware, Crypto-Blocker Ransomware, and Fatboy Ransomware. The launchers of all of these threats can be camouflaged as harmless-looking files represented using highly misleading spam emails. As soon as you click the file to open it, the ransomware executes without your notice. Speaking of different ransomware threats, FuckTheSystem Ransomware is worth mentioning as well because both of these infections were created using very similar codes. Unfortunately, we cannot say whether or not they were created by the same people. What we can say is that you must delete either of these threats because you do not want malware running on your operating system; especially malware that might be capable of encrypting your personal files. It was found that while encrypting files, Haters Ransomware should add the “.haters” extension to all of them. Do not remove the extension because it is not linked to the encryption of your file.
At this stage (as mentioned already, the threat might be in development), Haters Ransomware does not change the background or create files that would represent ransom demands. In fact, it does not have any demands at all. When encrypting your files, this threat opens a window entitled “Form1.” Next, you are introduced to the “Form2” window that informs that your files were encrypted. This window includes a box where the decryption key must go. If you enter the right decryption key, you should be introduced to a decryption window (“Form3”), and then a pop-up entitled “Done” stating that your files were decrypted. Our researchers recommend using the “masihmaubullyguaanjeng” key. If that does not work, you should look into third-party decryption tools. Just do not make the mistake of installing the first tool that promises to help you. Cyber criminals are smart, and they can exploit your need for reliable and useful software to make you install dangerous malware. Hopefully, the decryption key we have found will help you decrypt all your personal files at once.
We are sure there is no need to explain why it is important to delete Haters Ransomware. We should focus on how you can remove this infection from your operating system quickly and efficiently. As we have mentioned already, this threat is most likely to slither into your PC via a spam email attachment, and if you have opened it yourself, you should be able to recognize the launcher of the ransomware. If you cannot do that, you might have trouble with the manual removal of Haters Ransomware. Luckily, that is not the only option you have got. You can install anti-malware software, and the guaranteed removal of all existing threats is not the only reason to do that. If you want to have your operating system malware-free in the future, you need reliable security software, and anti-malware software can provide you with that. Just like with decryption software, you need to install anti-malware software you can trust. We are ready to answer any remaining questions you might have, and you can add them to the comments section.
