Ranion 1.07 Ransomware
Ranion 1.07 Ransomware is an extremely dangerous computer infection that has been created to steal your money. Perhaps it is a good thing that this infection does not do that surreptitiously, but it does not make the entire experience any easier. The worst is that you can remove Ranion 1.07 Ransomware from your system, but the repercussions of this threat do not disappear so easily. You may need to look for ways to restore your affected files, keeping in mind the possibility that you may need to delete the encrypted files and then start anew. Do not let that discourage you.
Perhaps the most dangerous thing about this program is that there might be many versions of it out there. Why? That is because Ranion 1.07 Ransomware is a RaaS. RaaS sands for Ransomware as a Service, and it means that the program is available for sale on the darknet. Users who know how to access secure networks through the TOR browser or any other channel can find this and many other ransomware programs ready to be used as long as they have the money to buy them. What’s more, Ranion 1.07 Ransomware might also end up being modified by its buyer.
So the Ranion 1.07 Ransomware we are talking about here is the “clean” version that is sold on the darknet, but perhaps you may encounter a slightly customized version as well. Due to the fact that the program can be used by several owners, there might also be several distribution methods employed. The most common ransomware distribution method is spam. This means that users can easily avoid getting infected with ransomware, but they often do fall into the trap because they are not careful about the emails they open. Just because an email lands in your main inbox, it does not mean it is trustworthy!
Spam campaigns have been evolving pretty fast these days. Now spam messages often look like invoices from online stores and even financial reports from banks! But here is the trick: if you do not have an account in a particular bank, why would you be getting a report? Even our team often receives random messages that urge us to check out some document, but if they come from an institution we are not familiar with, why should we open it? And in fact, you can always scan the attached file with a security tool before opening, this way getting rid of the possibility of getting infected.
As far as the Ranion 1.07 Ransomware program itself is concerned, it functions like your usual ransomware. The specifications may differ depending on the modifications performed by its owners, but normally, it uses the AES-256 algorithm to encrypt user files, and once the encryption is complete, it adds the “.ransom” extension at the end of the filename. This way, users can immediately tell which applications or files have been affected by the infection. Depending on the version of Ranion 1.07 Ransomware, the program may also change your desktop background and drop a ransom note.
With this infection on-board, you can expect most of your personal files getting encrypted. Documents and pictures will definitely be affected, so it is very important that you have copies of those files saved on an external hard drive or perhaps somewhere on a virtual drive. We cannot give you more details on the infection because it has not been seen in the wild much, but from what we have gathered from its sales site, there are at least three Ranion packages one can purchase. All these packages include access to the command and control server that is provided by the program’s creators. The difference in packages lies in the period of use: it can be one month, six months or one year. From that, we can see that Ranion 1.07 Ransomware might be active for quite a while, so you need to do everything in your power to protect your system from this intruder.
You will find the manual removal guidelines below, but it may not be enough to delete all the malicious files from your computer. To safeguard your system, please consider acquiring a powerful antispyware tool that would make sure your PC is safe and sound 24/7.
