HappyCrypter Ransomware

If HappyCrypter Ransomware ever arrives on your computer, this will inevitably result in the encryption of a bunch of personal files, including pictures, documents, videos, and more. We are sure it will not be hard to say which of the files have been encrypted by the ransomware infection because unlike other files stored on the system, those encrypted ones could no longer be accessed. You will be told that you can decrypt them by paying a ransom in Bitcoins. Of course, you should not do that because nobody knows whether you will get your files back after you pay money. Even if you get the promised decryptor, it might be completely useless, so you should not purchase decryption software from cyber criminals behind HappyCrypter Ransomware. If you ignore our advice and make a payment expecting to get your files back easily, keep in mind that the ransomware infection will stay. In other words, you will need to delete it no matter you manage to decrypt your files or not. If you keep it active on your system, you might find all your new files encrypted one day. If the loss of more personal files does not sound like a good idea, eliminate the ransomware infection from your system today.

It is not a secret that HappyCrypter Ransomware has been developed to obtain money from users. Because of this, it does not surprise us at all that this infection encrypts users’ files after it arrives on their computers. Most probably, you will not only find your personal files encrypted. You should also notice a new picture set as Desktop background and the main ransomware window opened on Desktop. You should be able to close it easily, but if the X button does not work, kill the malicious process in Task Manager. It should have a similar name to HappyCrypter Ransomware. The main window opened to users by the ransomware infection following the successful entrance contains a ransom note. Users are told what has happened to their files: “All your personal files have been locked.” Also, it tells users that they will get their files decrypted only if they send 0.9 BTC to the provided Bitcoin address. The decryption tool is very expensive, and it is unclear whether cyber criminals really have it, so you should not purchase it from them. We cannot promise that you could unlock your files because a free decryptor does not exist, but you can definitely restore your data from a backup. Sadly, you could not do that if a backup of your personal files does not exist anywhere.

The last paragraph will tell you more about the HappyCrypter Ransomware removal, but we should first talk about its dissemination. Not much information about the HappyCrypter Ransomware distribution is available, but specialists at are 99% sure that it travels in spam emails. Most probably, it is spread as an attachment in these emails. Also, according to them, the chances are high that it might slither onto computers illegally because of the weak RDP credentials. Finally, some users could have downloaded it on their PCs themselves thinking that it is a beneficial application, specialists say. Yes, ransomware infections can pretend to be good programs, so you should be more careful with new software you download from the web starting today. It is not that easy to prevent undesirable applications from entering the system, especially if a user does not know much about malicious software and its typical behavior, so we believe that a security application must be installed on all users’ computers.
