Diablo6 Ransomware might seem like a unique threat, but, in reality, it is a new variant of the well-known Locky Ransomware infection. According to the analysis conducted by our research team, this infection can successfully encrypt your personal photos and sensitive documents without any warning. All that this infection needs is to slither in unnoticed, and it is very good at that. The infamous Locky infection was spreading via corrupted spam emails, and it is believed that the new threat is being distributed in the exact same way. Do you remember opening an unfamiliar file right before your files got encrypted? If you do, you probably know how the infection was unleashed. Unfortunately, once the threat encrypts files, there is no turning back, and it is possible that the files will remain encrypted for good. That is why many do not know whether to remove Diablo6 Ransomware or follow the demands of cyber criminals instead.
According to the information that the ransomware shares itself, it appears that Diablo6 Ransomware uses AES and RSA ciphers – both of which are strong – to encrypt data. It is most likely that one of these ciphers is used to encrypt the private key that you need to get your data decrypted. This information is represented via a file named “diablo6.htm”, and it should be created on the Desktop. Copies of this file should also be created in the folders containing your personal files that were encrypted by Diablo6 Ransomware. Our research team notes that the files might have different names, such as “diablo6-abcd.htm” or “diablo6-dc44.htm”. These files are not malicious, and you can open them. What you need to be most cautious about is the information represented via them. Without a doubt, you will need to delete all of these ransom note files when removing the ransomware itself.
The message within the ransom note suggests that you need a “private key” and a “decrypt program” to get your files restored. To get these, you are asked to download the Tor Browser, visit a special page, and then follow payment instructions. The same instructions are also represented using a .TMP file with a random name. Is it safe for you to follow the instructions that the ransom creator introduces you to? We do not advise following the instructions because there is only one outcome, and that is paying a ransom. Even if your files are worth the money that is asked from you, you need to keep in mind that the creator of the malicious Diablo6 Ransomware is a cyber crook who does not want anything but your money. After all, what would happen if the decryptor was not provided to you after you paid the ransom? That is right, nothing would happen, and that is why ransomware creators are not know for giving out decryptors.
Have you looked at your personal files? You might not recognize them after Diablo6 Ransomware encrypts them because they are renamed. Regular names are replaced with a unique ID that the ransomware gives each victim. On top of that, the “.diablo6” extension is attached at the end. You cannot do anything to recover your files because a special decryption key is required. In some cases, malware experts manage to decipher the keys used by ransomware, and decryptors become available. At this point in time, a legitimate decryptor that would work for Diablo6 Ransomware does not exist. Unfortunately, we cannot know if it will be created in the future. What does that leave you with? Your files might be lost for good.
Identifying and deleting Diablo6 Ransomware components might be a tough task, which is why we do not believe that everyone will be able to get rid of this malicious threat manually. That is not a huge problem because legitimate anti-malware software can save the day for anyone. If you install this software, it will automatically delete Diablo6 Ransomware along with other infections that might exist. What if you choose the manual removal option? If you do, you need to be very careful. You should also consider using a reliable malware scanner to help you along the way.
