If your PC were to become infected with eBayWall Ransomware, then it will start encrypting your files immediately. We do not know the type of encryption algorithm used by this ransomware, but it is evident that it is secure enough because the cyber security industry has not created a decryptor for it yet. This ransomware is set to target a wide range of files that include images, videos, executables, audio files, file archives, documents, and so on. Basically, this program uses a unique cipher to rearrange the information bytes to corrupt the file and render it useless. After encrypting your files, this ransomware adds a ".ebay" file extension to each encrypted file. Once it has completed the encryption, it drops a ransom note in each folder where a file was encrypted. The note is named "ebay-msg.html, " and it is an HTML file to be opened using your web browser. The file features a long complaint about eBay’s insufficient security. Furthermore, the note spins it like its eBay’s fault that your files were encrypted.
The cyber criminals behind eBayWall Ransomware want you to pay 200000 XMR (Monero) coins which are an approximate 9660000 US dollars. Clearly, not everyone can pay this sum of money and even if someone did, there is little chance that their file would be worth paying that kind of money. Nevertheless, it appears that the cyber criminals are serious about it because they want you to send the ransom to 47w1UAErjv3X7e4YnFBLa2HbnsdM9yP8A9eUDhTGrs7Q4Ekd564AWZySAULfLQZ3G92p1VMvPFdTy8WGLz5TDrA4KuJo3tM. However, no further instructions are given, and there is no telling whether you would receive the decryption tool if you paid. Therefore, we recommend not paying the ransom.
It has been suggested that the primary distribution method of eBayWall Ransomware is email spam. Some have suggested that its developers have set up an email server that is dedicated to sending fake emails to ransom email addresses in the hopes of infecting as many computers as possible. The emails can be disguised as receipts, invoices, business-related correspondence, and so on. The main ransomware file is most likely attached to the email and can pose as a PDF document with the help of a second extension and an icon change. Email spam is the most likely distribution method, but let us not forget that there are plenty of other distribution options and one of them is malicious links that can be featured on infected websites. In such cases, the ransomware is downloaded secretly to a hidden location, so it can be difficult to identify it. That is all we have to say about its distribution methods because, unfortunately, there is not enough factual information.
In short, eBayWall Ransomware is a malicious program set to encrypt your personal files after infecting your PC by stealth and then demand that you pay a hefty ransom. Paying the unreasonably large ransom is impossible. Therefore, your only option is to remove this ransomware either using an anti-malware program such as SpyHunter or delete it manually. See the guide below not how you can potentially remove this ransomware because its executable file is named randomly and can be placed anywhere on your PC.
