Danger level 7
Type: Trojans
Common infection symptoms:
  • Slow Computer
  • System crashes
  • Connects to the internet without permission
  • Installs itself without permissions
  • Can't be uninstalled via Control Panel Ransomware Ransomware is a dangerous infection that changes your background image and installs itself without permission. It is obvious that you cannot remove it from your system via Control Panel, so you have to take specific security measures to protect your computer and yourself from malicious exploitation. In this description, we will tell you more about this ransomware program, and we will also give you detailed manual removal instructions. Some users may not feel too comfortable with manual removal, and if so, then you should rely on a professional antispyware tool that would help you terminate all the malicious threats automatically.

Ransomware programs are malicious Trojans that enter your computer uninvited and encrypt your files. Encryption is a type of mechanism that is originally used to protect data from being read by potentially harmful parties. Some file-sharing websites encrypt the uploaded data too and issue the main decryption key for the user alone. Unfortunately, this mechanism is also exploited by cyber criminals as ransomware applications are the most common type of computer infections right now. When the file encryption occurs, the infection takes the bytes the comprise your file apart and then puts all the pieces of information back together, but not in the appropriate order. In other words, the information your files carry get scrambled and the only way to restore it is to get the decryption key. Ransomware requires you to send an email message to As you can see, the name of this infection is taken from the email address it uses for ransom fee collection. Usually, similar infections display the ransom note on your desktop with the time limit and the ransom amount users are expected to pay. However, this program does nothing of the sort. Supposedly, you will find out just how much you need to pay once you contact these criminals. But security experts suggest that sending emails would not help much because cyber criminals are known to run away with the money, without even issuing the decryption key.

This program uses the same pattern as Ransomware, Ransomware, Green_ray Ransomware, Saraswati Ransomware, and others. It will not lock your screen, but it will use the RSA-2048 encryption key to alter your files. This program is not too picky when it comes to the file types it encrypts. During our tests, we have found that it affects all third-party program files, pictures, and documents. The Windows system files will be left untouched because the malware still needs your system to function: How else would you be able to contact the criminals if your system went off the grid?

The encrypted files with have an additional extension that reads: The ID in the extension refers to your own infection ID. Every single computer that gets affected by this infection receives a unique ID. This way, the criminals can count just how many systems have been infected, and they can also recognize their own doing. Practically, this is not in any way useful to you, but it is a good thing to know how these infections work.

The question is, however, you should try and buy this decryption key? We would strongly discourage you from doing that. Ask any security professional around, and they will tell you that succumbing to these threats has many negative aspects. For starters, you cannot be sure that you will get the decryption key. Second, by paying you would “encourage” the criminals to continue aiming for multiple innocent users online.

Albeit it may not be your favorite piece of cake, you have to remove Ransomware from the system immediately. And only after the full malware removal can you restore your file. There might be a public decryption tool coming up sometime in the future, but it is a lot faster to restore your files from a backup. If you have some place where you keep copies of your files, you can simply copy and paste them back into your system. But do that only when you delete the infection!
