Uncrypte Ransomware

Cyber criminals keep developing malicious software encrypting files and then demanding a ransom for their decryption. Uncrypte Ransomware is one of their newest creations. This computer infection enters computers without permission and then encrypts all files it finds on the affected computer, meaning that only those files belonging to the Windows OS are left unencrypted. Even though the operating system running on the computer will not be ruined, users could no longer access any of their files, including documents, pictures, music, videos, and many more. Since people find the most valuable data locked too, some of them rush to send the required money to cyber criminals. Researchers at pcthreat.com do not think that it is a good solution to the problem because nobody knows whether cyber criminals will do as they say, i.e. give the decryption key to users after receiving their money. It might be impossible to decrypt files without the private key cyber criminals should have, but users should still not risk sending the required amount of money to crooks. Instead, they should try out all other data recovery methods after the deletion of Uncrypte Ransomware. Actually, users who send money to cyber criminals still have to take care of the ransomware infection themselves because it will not be removed automatically.

Uncrypte Ransomware starts performing its activities immediately after it enters computers. In other words, it immediately goes to encrypt users’ files no matter where they are located. Those encrypted files can be easily recognized by the extension they receive: unCrypte@INDIA.COM_{random letters and numbers}. If all files have already received this new filename extension, you should be able to find a new .txt file (Readme.txt) in places containing encrypted files too. This file is a ransom note. It informs users that their all files have been encrypted “due to a security problem”, and their only chance to decrypt them is to write an email to unCrypte@india.com and “pay for decryption in Bitcoins.” The amount of money users will have to transfer for the decryption of their files depends, as it is stated in Readme.txt, on how fast they establish contact with cyber criminals. In order to show users that they can decrypt files, crooks are willing to decrypt 3 files with a size less than 10MB for free. If it happens that these three decrypted files are received, it does not mean that they are going to decrypt the remaining files, so users should not rush to make a payment. What they can do instead is to recover files from a backup or using a free data recovery tool. Do not have high hopes – there are no guarantees that it will be possible to decrypt files without the special decryption key.

Even though ransomware infections enter computers illegally in most cases, users are the ones who allow them to enter their systems without realizing that. Therefore, in the opinion of security specialists, users should be able to protect their PCs from untrustworthy software too. What they need to do first is to ignore all spam emails received because spam emails are the ones which distribute ransomware infections actively. These threats travel as attachments in these emails, and they immediately appear on computers when users download these attachments they contain. Uncrypte Ransomware comes as a spam email attachment in most cases too, but it does not mean that it is the only way to disseminate file-encrypting infections. According to specialists, they might wait for users on untrustworthy third-party websites too. On top of that, their entrance might be directly associated with the presence of malicious software existing on the computer and performing activities behind a user’s back. It is not always easy to protect the system from malicious software, so users should go to install security applications on their computers too. This piece of software will ensure the maximum protection of the computer 24/7.

Uncrypte Ransomware does not block the screen or system utilities, so users should be able to delete it from their PCs manually. All they need to do to ensure that this infection is gone and cannot encrypt new files that will be created in the future is to find and erase all suspicious recently downloaded files. They might be located in %TEMP%, %APPDATA%, %USERPROFILE%\Downloads, %USERPROFILE%\Desktop, or other places. If you cannot find those files associated with the ransomware infection, use an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter. It will detect and erase them all quickly.

Delete Uncrypte Ransomware

  1. Press Win+E.
  2. Go to %TEMP%, %APPDATA%, %USERPROFILE%\Downloads, and %USERPROFILE%\Desktop (these are the main places malicious files are located).
  3. Find suspicious files and delete them all.
  4. Empty the Recycle bin.
