When there is one big bad guy on the block, you can be sure that you will find a lot of copycats, trying to bask in their supposed glory. Blooper Ransomware happens to be one of such copycats that appears to be mimicking the notorious WannaCry Ransomware. Fortunately, this program seems to be more about scaring users than actually doing any harm. So it should not be a problem to remove Blooper Ransomware from your computer. On the other hand, if this copycat managed to enter your system, it means that the real deal could access your computer too, so you need to be careful.
To avoid such infections you need to know how they spread around. Our research suggests that Blooper Ransomware spreads via spam email messages. The same could be said about WannaCry Ransomware, although so far security researchers have not figured out the exact distribution method. They only know that WannaCry Ransomware employs a worm infection, allowing it to infect all the system on the network the moment it gets into one target computer. Of course, Blooper Ransomware is nothing of the kind, but it still does not deny the fact it can trick users into installing it on their systems.
Normally, spam email messages get filtered into junk folders these days, but sometimes they could be really sophisticated and land in your main inbox. Since the spam messages that distribute Blooper Ransomware and other malware may look like invoices from online shops or other important messages from financial institutions, you should take note whether the message seem to be random or not. Have you bought anything lately? Are you really a member on the site that claims to have sent you the message? Is the email in your language in the first place? Consider a number of signal questions before opening the message. If it has an attachment and you feel that you must open it, take your time and scan it with a security tool of your choice. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
Now, if you get infected with Blooper Ransomware, there is no need to panic because this program DOES NOT encrypt your files. It only says it does so you would think this is the end and you must pay the ransom fee. The program, on the other hand, does collect the ransom fee, and if users are too shocked to check whether their files are okay, they might transfer the payment without any second thought. After all, this is the notification that appears on your screen:
The program also says that you have five hours to transfer the fee, otherwise, the ransom amount will go. Users, who are too terrified to see such a notification on their screens might feel inclined to pay the so-called ransom, and so that it one of the main reasons you need to remove Blooper Ransomware at once.
If you try to look around ignoring this pop-up on your desktop, you will see that you can close the Blooper Ransomware message without any difficulty. As mentioned, the program also does not affect your files in any way, so you will find them intact if you were to check your folders. Finally the program does not disable the Task Manager and does not lock your screen, so it does not present you with any difficulties if you want to focus on the removal right away.
To delete Blooper Ransomware from your system, please remove the files you have recently downloaded from your inbox. The files should be in your Downloads folder (by default) or in some other directory, if you have changed your downloaded files location settings.
After the manual removal, be sure to scan your PC with a licensed antispyware tool because there might be more unfamiliar and even dangerous threats on-board. Likewise, you can also remove this infection with an automated antispyware application, without bothering to look for the malicious files yourself. Automatic malware removal is fast, efficient, and you also ensure your system is protected against various threats, too.
