BlueEagle Ransomware is probably one of the most expensive mistakes you can make since letting this vicious program onto your system will cost you dearly if you want to get the decryption code after your files have been encrypted. It is quite possible that this dangerous threat was originally designed to target corporations because most private computer users would not have thousands of dollars to pay for a number of old pictures and documents that they usually store on their machine. Hopefully, you have a backup of your files saved on a removable disk or in cloud storage so that you can restore them after you remove BlueEagle Ransomware from your system. Since there is no other way to decode your files than to get the unique decryption key, it is all up to your attackers whether they would care enough to send it to you after you pay. Unfortunately, experience indicates that this rarely happens no matter how high the ransom fee may be. It is more likely to get infected with further threats than to get the key in fact. Therefore, we highly recommend that you delete BlueEagle Ransomware right away.
Although we cannot confirm it as of yet, this ransomware may be spread via spam e-mails. Do not be mislead by having a spam filter. As a matter of fact, a spam filter has strict rules to be able to distinguish a possible malicious mail from an authentic one. Yet, they do make mistakes and place totally legitimate mails in the spam folder. Then, it is up to you to check your spam folder for possibly misplaced mails. This is when things can go wrong because such a spam may actually look authentic and rather urgent as well to make sure that your eyes will be caught by it so that you would most likely want to see the content.
However, this spam mail does not reveal too much about the matter it claims to regard. It simply instructs you to download the attached file to learn more about the alleged unpaid fine or overdue invoice, or whatever reasons they make up for you to believe that this could be real. Please note that once you launch the attachment, there is no way for you to delete BlueEagle Ransomware without possibly losing your files because even if you realize that your files are being encrypted, you could not react fast enough to stop it in the act.
Similarly to most of the other ransomware programs, this malware infection also targets your most important files to cause the most possible damage to you. The encrypted files get a ".SaherBlueEagleRansomware" extension added, so they will look like "image.jpg.SaherBlueEagleRansomware" and this makes it easier for you to estimate the damage. Once the encryption is done, which may take as little as a few minutes or even less, this malicious program replaces your background with its ransom note screen. The note informs you that your files have been taken hostage and that you have to pay as much as 1.25 Bitcoins, which is an insanely high 7,710 US dollars worth of fee at the time of writing.
We have found that if you press the "Decrypt my files" button, it actually launches shadowdeleter.exe, which displays a black screen and deletes the shadow copies of your files so that you cannot restore them. All in all, we do not recommend that you pay this amount to these cyber crooks because it is too risky since you have no guarantee that they will send you the key. We advise you to remove BlueEagle Ransomware immediately, if you want to start restoring your system even if this means losing your files. But then again, we are talking about your files, so it is up to you how you decide.
We have prepared the necessary steps below to help you eliminate this dangerous threat manually. If you follow our instructions, you should be able to get rid of this ransomware in a few minutes. Only then can you start copying your clean files from your backup. We also recommend that before you do so, you run a reliable malware scanner to detect all known infections on your system to make sure that you can clean it entirely. In fact, the best solution is to install a reputable malware removal program (e.g., SpyHunter) to automatically handle all possible threats and to protect your PC from future attacks.
