Rotor Ransomware

The first thing you should know about Rotor Ransomware if you came across it is that you have to get rid of it first if you are thinking about placing new data on the computer. It looks like the malicious application can encipher various private files belonging to the user, and it might continue doing so as long as it is running in the background. Therefore, if you think this malicious program could have entered your system, we recommend erasing it before adding new files on the infected computer. If you decide to remove Rotor Ransomware, keep it in mind the instructions at the end of the article can make it easier for you if you wish to eliminate the malware manually. Of course, if you need more information before deciding what to do we invite you to read the rest of the text.

The infection might be spread via malicious software installers, Spam emails, and so on. Thus, as in many cases with such threats, users have to be cautious with any data that raises a suspicion. Unfortunately, if Rotor Ransomware manages to infect the computer, it may do a lot of damage. It could be after user’s photographs, pictures, documents, videos, or other valuable personal files. As soon as the threat is launched, it should encrypt targeted data, and consequently, it should become unreadable. In other words, once the data becomes affected the user might be unable to open it. If you have a unique decryption key, generated during the encryption process and a decryption tool the locked data can be deciphered. The problem is the mentioned key could be placed on a secret server belonging to Rotor Ransomware’s creators, and the decryption tool is available only to these hackers too.

Users who encounter this threat should see a particular email address added at the end of all enciphered data titles (e.g., ______DILIGATMAIL7@tutanota.com______.OTR). Specialists say that since the malicious program does not create a text document with instructions on how to get the mentioned decryption tools, the email address is most likely placed for the user to see it so he would contact the hackers and ask how to recover his data himself. We did not try to write them ourselves, but from our experience with other threats alike, we can say the malware’s creators would probably ask the user to pay a specific price for the mentioned tools or in other words a ransom. If you consider such option, you should know the hackers could trick you and take the transferred money without sending you the promised decryption tools. However, if you can survive without the enciphered files or there is a way you could recover them (e.g., copies on a removable media device) you should not even think about contacting Rotor Ransomware’s developers or wasting your money for the tools you might never receive. For users who feel this way, we advise not to hesitate anymore and get rid of the infection at once.

The malware’s deletion cannot restore files that were already encrypted, but it can protect your future data from ruin. As a result, we recommend eliminating Rotor Ransomware for any user who has no intention of paying the ransom. To complete this task manually, you should kill the malicious program’s process, find the threat’s installer, and then erase it manually. This who process will be described in the instructions available below this paragraph, so if you do not know how to remove the threat manually, you should follow the provided steps carefully. For less experienced users we would suggest using a reliable antimalware tool. Pick a tool created by trustworthy developers, install in on the infected device and set it to scan the system. Then wait till the results show up and click the deletion button to remove all identified malicious programs at the same time. Lastly, should you need more assistance or have some questions about the infection let us know by placing a comment below or contacting us via social media.
