Paradise Ransomware is not as sophisticated as some other ransomware infections spreading through the web these days, but it might still become your worst nightmare because it is also capable of encrypting personal files and does that right after the successful entrance. We are sure that it locks files because it wants users’ money. If you have already found a bunch of your personal files encrypted, it does not mean that you should go to send money to ransomware creators because the chances are high that you will not get anything from them, and, in such a case, the refund will not be issued for you either. You can send them 3 files to get them decrypted for free if you want to, but you need to find an alternative way to decrypt the rest of your files. For example, it is possible to restore the encrypted data from a backup. Before you take any action to get your files back, you need to remove Paradise Ransomware fully so that it could not encrypt your files again. You should find it easier to delete this infection from your computer after reading this report till the end, so continue reading!
Paradise Ransomware has been developed with the intention of obtaining money from users easier, so the first thing this infection does following the successful entrance is the encryption of files. Your files have already been affected by this threat if they contain a new .paradise extension at the end together with a random string. Users are, of course, not kept in blissful ignorance. They discover a new .txt file (#DECRYPT MY FILES#.txt), which is a ransom note, in all directories containing encrypted files. The ransom note informs them that they can no longer access a bunch of their files “due to a security problem.” Additionally, they find out what they can do about that. Users are told that “paying for decryption in Bitcoins” is the only way to get files back. The exact price is not indicated in the ransom note, but users are told that the size of the ransom depends on how fast they contact cyber criminals by the provided email address email@example.com. If you make a decision to purchase the decryption tool from cyber criminals, do this as soon as possible because the decryption key they have will be destroyed after 36 hours. We hope that you are not one of these users because paying money to cyber criminals is always a bad idea. If you send them money, it does not mean that you could unlock your files because you might not be given the decryption tool. As has been mentioned in the first paragraph of this article, the only way to unlock files for free is to restore data from a backup. Sadly, there is nothing else you can do.
