Have you been infected with Ransomware? The malicious infection will not try to hide from you because it needs your undivided attention to succeed in its goals. Its main aim is to rip you off by pushing you into paying the ransom fee. Supposedly, after the paying the money you should receive the decryption key that would restore your files. It would be nice if it were true, but no one can guarantee that the criminals keep their word. Your best bet in this situation would be removing Ransomware for good and then investing in a powerful antispyware tool for protection.

To be absolutely honest, we have covered similar infections many times before, so there is nothing new we can say about this ransomware program. Our main regret is that ransomware infections from this family do not have a public decryption tool. As a result, users infected by these dangerous programs cannot decrypt their files. In such a case, it is extremely important to have a file backup. You can regularly back up your files on an external hard drive. Although quite a few users store a lot of files on cloud drives, an external hard drive might be a better option because sometimes mapped cloud drives get encrypted by ransomware, too.

Either way, since you have already been affected by Ransomware, perhaps it is time to find out more about this application. We have already mentioned the program is part of a big group of infections, and this group consists of such threats as Green_ray Ransomware, Ransomware,, and many others. They all function according to the same principle, so whatever was applicable to its predecessors, you can be sure that Ransomware can do the same things as well. In fact, there is a good chance that this program is Ransomware-as-a-Service, and it has been customized by someone who bought the program.

The application itself must have entered your system via spam email attachments. Of course, it would be possible to avoid this infection if you were more careful about which attachments you download and open. Take note that financial institutions and online shops rarely send attachments with shipping invoices and various reports. They are mostly presented in the email message itself, so if someone urges you to download an attachment, the chances are it is a scam that can lead to a severe malware infection.

Now that the program is already on your computer, you probably should know that Ransomware encrypts your files using the RSA-2048 encryption algorithm. It is extremely hard to decrypt this algorithm unless you have the decryption key, and this is how the criminals expect to make easy money out of you. After the file encryption is complete, it displays a message on your screen that says “Your data is encrypted!!! To return the file to an email email” Albeit the message is in a very poor English, it is probably enough to understand the general message: contact us or else.

However, even if you contact the criminals who infected you, who can guarantee that their server connection is stable enough to issue the decryption key? After all, paying would mean you fell straight into the hands of these crooks, and you could enable them to continue working on this malevolent scam.

Thus, instead of paying the ransom fee, please refer to the manual removal instructions that you will find below this article. If you think that removing this infection on your own is a bit too much for you, scan the system with the SpyHunter free scanner.

An automated antispyware tool is always a good idea when you do not know just how many suspicious and dangerous files you have on your PC. Also, you need to remove this infection first if you want to transfer backup files into your hard drive. If left alone, Ransomware may encrypt the newly transferred files too, and you most certainly would not want that to happen.

If you have any further questions about this ransomware program or your computer’s security in general, do not hesitate to contact us by leaving a comment. Also, if you find the instructions complicated, do let us know. We are always ready for your feedback.
