SucyLocker Ransomware

SucyLocker Ransomware is one of the many programs that have been created to steal money from innocent computer users and even corporations. The bottom line is that when you get infected with this program, you should not panic. Yes, it is true that the application will encrypt your files, and it will be rather hard to restore them. However, your main task right now is removing SucyLocker Ransomware from your system because you will not be able to work on restoring your data as long as this infection remains on your computer. Thus, do what is necessary to get rid of it.

Origins wise, this program is not something spectacular. In fact, it is based on the Hidden Tear ransomware that is an open-source infection. It means that anyone could make use of this open-source code to create their own infection. Needless to say, there are many ransomware programs out there based on the same Hidden Tear code. For example, we could say that SucyLocker Ransomware is indirectly related to CryForMe Ransomware, Unikey Ransomware, Executioner Ransomware, Resurrection Ransomware, and many others. The fact that this code is openly available and can be modified by anyone to create their own application makes it a near-perfect source for malware creators.

What’s more, this program might also be described under a different name, too. The original name of this infection is $ucyLocker, so if you find descriptions with the latter keyword, it is still the same SucyLocker Ransomware program. The thing is that malware infections seldom have “official” names, and computer security experts come up with these titles when they need to use some sort of a keyword to describe it. Usually, the first line in the ransom note ends up serving as the name for the infection. And the keyword in the ransom note displayed by SucyLocker Ransomware does say “$ucyLocker.”

Now, what else does this notification say? Well, here is a full text of the ransom note that this program shows on your desktop:

Your computer is locked. Please do not close this window as that will result in serious computer

Your Files are locked. They are locked because you downloaded something with this file in it.
This is Ransomware. It locks your files until you pay for them. Before you ask,
Yes, we will give you your files back once you pay and our server confirm that you pay.

As you can see, this program tries to convince you that pay the 0.16BTC (~$420USD) for the decryption code is virtually the only way to restore your files. However, computer security experts strongly object paying the ransom. Even if this program says that it will surely get your files back, there is no 100% guarantee that it would do so. In fact, it is very likely that the criminals would simply collect your money and then scram. And you would be left with the corrupted files and the malicious programs on your computer.

Although there is no public decryption tool, it is still possible to retrieve your files, if you restore them from a file backup. You probably have your text files saved on various devices, and you do not even realize just how many copies of the same file you might have. When you remove SucyLocker Ransomware from your system, you should look for all the potential ways to get the healthy copies of your documents back. For instance, you might even have a lot of latest files saved in your outbox! There is usually a way to get the data back, so please do not panic.

As far as SucyLocker Ransomware is concerned, you can remove it manually. However, this program kills Task Manager, so you will also have to restore it as well. If you are not sure about this, you can use an automated antispyware tool that will make sure all the modifications performed by the ransomware infection get fixed.
