It is very unfortunate that such programs like Nm4 Ransomware have been on the rise for more than two years now. Ransomware programs are probably the most popular type of computer infections at the moment, and it does not look like they are going to disappear any time soon. In this description, we will tell you more about the program that entered your computer when you expected it the least. Also, we will show you how to remove Nm4 Ransomware from the system. Please bear in mind that deleting the application does not decrypt your files automatically.
It should be possible to restore your files with a public decryption tool if such gets released later on. Therefore, rather than removing your encrypted files, it is recommended that you store them in some external storage for the time being, as there is always a chance that a decryption tool will be developed sometime in the future.
Does that mean there is no way to restore the files at the moment? Unfortunately, yes. However, even if you do not keep a file backup consciously, you may have most of your files saved someplace else without even realizing. For instance, you could have the most recent files in your inbox. Perhaps your photos are saved on your mobile device or on your virtual drive. You should check out all the possible options before declaring surrender.
Of course, the best way to fight this infection would be avoiding it in the first place. Therefore, it is important to recognize the main ransomware infection routes. If you know how these applications spread around, it should be possible to get out of the way before they even reach you.
The most common ransomware distribution method is spam email attachment. Fake messages enter your main inbox carrying an attachment that is supposed to be important. For instance, the message might tell you that the attachment in question carries a crucial invoice you may have to open at once. It might also tell you that the supposed report in the attachment file has to be checked immediately. Whatever it might be, opening the unfamiliar attachment could easily lead to the Nm4 Ransomware infection, and so, you should never download and open files that are sent by someone you do not recognize.
It is always possible to get infected with ransomware if you open a link on a website that is full of pop-up ads and other suspicious content. The ransomware download could be initiated automatically, and sometimes such infections exploit operating system vulnerabilities to spread as far as possible. If you do not update your OS regularly, the chances of getting infected only grow!
If Nm4 Ransomware enters your computer, it will encrypt most of your personal files, leaving quite a few of your system files intact. Why does that happen? Nm4 Ransomware needs your system to function properly so that you could transfer the ransom fee. Here is what it says about it:
Needless to say, you should not open any of the links because that would not solve anything. The people behind this infection hope that you will succumb to panic, and you will pay the ransom without giving it a second thought. It should be pointed out that the cyber criminals might as well scram the moment you pay the money, and they may not even issue the decryption key. Hence, you should never do what the criminals ask of you.
The installer file for Nm4 Ransomware might still be on our system, so you should check the directory where you store all of the downloaded files, and remove it. The directory is usually called Downloads, but you may have some other settings on your PC. Also, you should scan your PC with a security tool, to see whether your system is safe and clean. After that, you can delete the encrypted files and transfer healthy files back into your computer. For more information, please feel free to leave us a comment.
