Crbr Encryptor Ransomware
Crbr Encryptor Ransomware is a new version of a ransomware infection Cerber Ransomware, which used to be quite prevalent some time ago. These are definitely not identical versions, but they share the same goal – to obtain money from users. Ransomware infections are usually set to block users’ Desktops or files so that the money could be extracted from users easier. Crbr Encryptor Ransomware is one of them – it will lock your personal files, including pictures, videos, music, and documents, if it ever successfully enters your computer. We can only imagine how badly you need your files back, but we still cannot let you send money to cyber criminals in exchange for the special decryption tool “CRBR Decryptor.” Paying money is not such a good idea because cyber criminals behind this infection might break their promise to send users the decryptor after receiving their money. It is more the rule than the exception already, so go to delete Crbr Encryptor Ransomware from your computer instead of going to send malware developers money. Since this threat deletes itself after encrypting users’ personal files, you will not need to do much to clean your system. Read the rest of the article to find more about the deletion procedure.
Ransomware infections are considered extremely harmful because their entrance always results in a bunch of problems. In the case of Crbr Encryptor Ransomware, users lose their files if this threat ever enters their computers. It does not take long to realize that files have been encrypted by the ransomware infection because, first, it is no longer possible to open them and, second, they receive a new extension consisting of 4 random letters/numbers, for example, .aldd. Users also discover a ransom note on Desktop after Crbr Encryptor Ransomware encrypts their files successfully. The first thing users find out is that they cannot access their “documents, photos, databases and other important files” because they have all been encrypted. Then, they find out that they can decrypt their files with the “private key and decryption program.” Of course, this tool can only be purchased from cyber criminals. Users need to download and install the TOR browser on their PCs and then open the “personal page.” Further instructions should be available there and, on top of that, users should find out how much the decryptor costs. There might be no other ways to restore files, but we still do not recommend sending cyber criminals money because nobody knows whether it will be possible to unlock them after transferring the ransom. There is one group of people who do not even need the decryption tool, specialists at pcthreat.com say. These are users who have a backup of their files. If you are one of them, do not even consider purchasing decryption software from cyber criminals – you could restore your files easily after you erase Crbr Encryptor Ransomware fully from your computer. Yes, the ransomware infection must be erased fully before the restoration of files. As has been mentioned above, it deletes its executable file after encrypting files, so you will not need to do much to get rid of it fully.
Crbr Encryptor Ransomware always enters computers without permission. Research conducted by our malware researchers has shown that this threat mainly travels in spam emails. It travels as an email attachment, so the only way to get infected with it is to open it. In some cases, it is enough to click on a link found in a spam email to get infected with malicious software too. Therefore, we highly recommend staying away from spam emails in the future. Of course, it is not the only distribution method that can be adopted to spread this threat. New ransomware infections might enter your PC again using the same tactic, so it is highly recommended to install security software to make sure that malicious software cannot enter the system.
Since Crbr Encryptor Ransomware deletes itself after the encryption, all you need to do is to remove its launcher. It might have a random name, so it would be easier to delete all recently downloaded files. These files are usually located in %USERPROFILE%\Downloads and %USERPROFILE%\Desktop directories. All suspicious files can be erased with an automatic malware remover as well, so do not force yourself to delete it manually if you do not know much about malware removal and/or computers.
