Wisperado@india.com Ransomware is a dangerous type of malicious software. Just like similar infections, e.g. Happydayz@india.com Ransomware, Supermagnet@india.com Ransomware, and Guardware@india.com Ransomware, it sneaks onto computers with the intention of encrypting users’ files. At the time of writing, it affects such files as .bmp, .pptx, .py, .xls, .xss, .zip, .acrodata, .au3, .chm, .wpl, .json, .jpg, .html, and others. Frankly, the list of files it targets is quite long, so, after its entrance, you might notice that it is impossible to access the most important files. Ransomware infections do not perform this process just to make users angry. Cyber criminals develop these malicious programs just to make it easier to get money from computer users. Yes, you have made a logical conclusion – these infections encrypt users’ important files and then offer them to purchase a decryption key. Unlike similar ransomware infections, Wisperado@india.com Ransomware does not tell users about the ransom they will have to pay to get their files back. The certain amount of money and payment instructions are sent to users when they write an email to Wisperado@india.com. People should not even bother writing an email to cyber criminals because they will not find out anything new. There is, especially, no point in wasting your time on contacting them if you are sure that you are not going to support crooks by transferring them money.
Ransomware infections usually show up on users’ computers without permission, but, in most cases, users find out about their presence very quickly. It should not take long to realize that Wisperado@india.com Ransomware is inside the system too because it performs the encryption procedure the moment it enters the system, and you will definitely discover files having the .viper1 filename extension soon. Needless to say, you could not open any of these files as they will all be encrypted. After encrypting important users’ data, Wisperado@india.com Ransomware drops a Read Me Please.hta file on computers too. It opens a window with a ransom note. It informs users that all their documents, photos, databases, games, and other important files have all been encrypted, and a special decryptor is needed to unlock them. Even though users are told that they can get it by writing an email to Wisperado@india.com, without a doubt, nobody is going to give that tool for them for free. The price of the decryptor is unknown, but, judging from ransom sizes other ransomware-type infections demand, it will not be a cheap piece of software. On top of that, there are no guarantees that you will get it, so in the opinion of specialists at pcthreat.com, you should not transfer the required money by any means. Sadly, a tool for decrypting files for free does not exist, so it might be impossible to unlock the personal data. The only way to get files back is to restore them from a backup. If you have never backed up any of your important files, you can only hope that a free file decryption tool is released soon by specialists.
Since the infection rate of Wisperado@india.com Ransomware is not that high at the time of writing, it is hard to talk about the distribution of this ransomware infection. It is, of course, already clear that it enters computers illegally. Users find out about its presence only when they discover a bunch of encrypted files on their computers. Even though we do not have much information about its distribution yet, it is very likely that it is spread through spam emails like similar threats do. Of course, users are not told that there is malicious software attached. Instead, they might see some kind of document which might seem to be completely harmless. After opening it, users allow ransomware to enter their computers. Of course, it would be smart to stay away from all spam emails and even emails received from unknown people, but this, unfortunately, might still not be enough to prevent malware from sneaking onto the computer. Therefore, users should install a legitimate antimalware tool on their computers too. Keeping it enabled will help users to avoid dangerous threats.
Wisperado@india.com Ransomware is not one of these malicious applications which make modifications in the system registry or creates several copies of its executable file. Of course, it does not mean that it does not have any files. Malware analysts have noticed that it drops a trust.exe file in %APPDATA% after infiltrating the computer. On top of that, the malicious file downloaded by a user, e.g. from a spam email will not disappear from the system too, so go to delete those files right now if your top priority is to clean the computer.
