'' Ransomware is a threat that marks its damaged files with a second extension called .[].insane, for example, sunset.jpg.[].insane. Unfortunately, such files can no longer be opened as the system does not recognize them. According to our researchers, even the malicious application’s removal will not restore any data. Nonetheless, it is exactly what we recommend for users who do not want to deal with hackers. As you see after the malware encrypts user’s data, he should find a ransom note asking to contact the infection’s developers via email. Once the user does so, the hackers should ask him to pay for a decryptor. The problem is, there is a possibility they will not hold to their end of the deal. To learn more about the malicious application or risks of contacting its creators we invite you to read the rest of this article. Should you decide to erase '' Ransomware we can also offer the deletion steps located at the end of it.

The malware could be executed accidentally by the user himself, for example, it might be traveling with Spam emails, fake software installers or updates, malicious pop-up advertisements, etc. Naturally, to keep the computer protected from threats like '' Ransomware the user should avoid malicious file-sharing web pages, untrustworthy Spam emails, or suspicious-looking ads. Of course, being careful might not be enough as hackers keep finding new ways to trick users into opening harmful installers unknowingly. Thus, another good idea would be to pick a reliable antimalware tool you trust and install it on the computer. Make sure it is always up to date, and it should help you guard the system against various threats.

Apparently, the user might not realize his computer was infected with '' Ransomware until he notices locked files. That is because the malware can work silently in the background without raising suspicion. However, by the time it finishes encrypting your files with a secure encryption algorithm, it should drop a file titled How_decrypt_files.txt on your Desktop and scatter its copies among folders with locked data. The threat’s developers are most likely doing so to ensure the user receives their message, which should say: “Hello! If you want restore your files write on email -” As you see, there is no explanation telling how it will decrypt your files and sadly merely writing to these people will not solve anything. In fact, writing to these people could only result in them asking you to pay a ransom.

The sum could vary, but usually, it is asked to be paid in a digital currency known as Bitcoin. It is important to realize, once the payment is made you will not be able to get it back even if '' Ransomware’s creators do not give you the decryptor. What we are trying to say is there is a possibility some users could get scammed. Consequently, we recommend not to waste any money on tools or services you might never receive. If you think it would be unwise to trust the hackers too, we advise you to eliminate the malware. Soon after the system is cleaned, the user could replace encrypted files with backup copies or try various recovery tools to get the locked data back. Also, there is always hope someone will be able to develop a decryption tool and share it with the malicious application’s victims.

Provided, you would rather remove '' Ransomware than pay any money to the hackers who are to blame for this vicious malware we invite you to use our prepared deletion steps located a bit below this paragraph. In case they appear to be a bit too complicated we would suggest employing a reliable antimalware tool.
