Protecting your operating system is crucial because Ransomware might be hiding behind any corner. Though this threat usually hides behind corrupted files attached to spam emails, other methods of distribution could be employed as well. This malicious threat uses concealment to slither in and initiate malicious processes, the most destructive of which is the encryption of your files. Photos, documents, and even software files can be encrypted using the RSA-2048 encryption key, and, unfortunately, deciphering it, at the moment, is impossible. Well, what does that mean? That means that if cyber criminals manage to execute the ransomware, you are under their control. They are the only ones who have the decryption key, and they are only ones who have the power to disclose it. Will they disclose it for free? Of course, they will not. Instead, they will demand a huge payment. Are you trying to remove Ransomware? That is what needs to be done, but keep in mind that this will not decrypt your files.

Other infections that are most similar to Ransomware include the vicious Ransomware and Ransomware. In fact, the family that these ransomware infections belong to is extremely vast, and all of its members are based on CrySIS Ransomware. It is not surprising that malware creators have chosen to develop their own infections using the source code of this ransomware because it has been proven to be unbeatable. Once the files are encrypted, it is impossible to crack the algorithm, and the decryption key is stored on a remote server. This means that all files with the ".id-[ID]" extension are fully in the hands of cyber criminals. Do not try to delete the extension or the ransomware itself to decrypt your files because that will not work. The bottom line is that only cyber criminals can provide you with the decryption key, and they know it. That is why the fee for a decryptor is very high. Of course, many users cannot put a price on the files that might hold sentimental value, and the creator of Ransomware expects that to bring in the profit.

The developer of Ransomware does provide its victims with a lot of information. Instead, it employs TXT and JPG (the Desktop wallpaper) files to introduce them to the email address that you are expected to write to. If you do, the creator behind the ransomware knows that you can be convinced to pay a ransom. As mentioned previously, the control is in the hands of cyber criminals, and they will use the situation to demand a huge ransom fee. We cannot claim that you will not get the decryption key if you pay the ransom, but it is very possible that you will not. If you are putting your savings on the line, think if the files decrypted are worth it. All in all, we hope that cyber criminals will not get your money and you will not lose your personal data. If you do, make sure you set up reliable backup systems to keep your personal files safe in the future. At least back up your most sensitive files that you do not want to risk losing again. If your files are backed up already, what are you waiting for? Delete Ransomware ASAP.

Hopefully, you are ready to remove Ransomware from your operating system. While we cannot say that the elimination of this ransomware is the easiest thing you will ever do, you should be able to get rid of it successfully using the guide below.
