Jabacrypter Ransomware is an infection that appears to have been built with Russian-speaking Windows users in mind. The threat is similar to Assembly Ransomware, Nmcrypt Ransomware, Cyberresearcher Ransomware, and all other file-encryptors that our research team has analyzed just recently. This kind of malware is built to encrypt personal data found on the targeted computers, and then to push the victims into paying big ransom fees that, unfortunately, almost never yield any benefit. If you have found this infection on your operating system, your personal files are likely to be encrypted, and the strange “.cryptfile” extension is likely to be added to their names. At this point, you might be desperate to get your files back, but we cannot promise that you will. Once the files are encrypted, a special decryption key is required, and obtaining it might be impossible. Keep reading to learn about this, as well as how to remove Jabacrypter Ransomware from your Windows operating system.
Unsecured RDP connections are likely to be used for the distribution of Jabacrypter Ransomware. It is not that hard for cyber criminals to gain remote access to operating systems because users are gullible and they can be tricked into giving unknown parties the permission to do malicious things. Of course, they are tricked into believing that that is not what is going on. Other methods of distribution could be used as well. Once inside, the infection encrypts personal files. At this time in research, we are yet to find out exactly which files the threat goes after, but it is most likely that photos, media files, and personal documents are the prime targets for Cyberresearcher Ransomware. In the folders containing the corrupted files, you should also find a file named “! ПРОЧТИ МЕНЯ.html.” As you can see, the name of this file is in Russian, and the message inside the file is in Russian too. Right off the bat, the creator of the threat informs the victim that they cannot decrypt the files themselves, and that, unfortunately, is the truth. Unless you have a key, or a program that would be able to decipher the code, you cannot recover the files yourself. Of course, you should not rush to remove the corrupted files because there is always a chance that a free decryptor would be released or created in the future. That does not mean that you should wait to delete Jabacrypter Ransomware.
The ransom note lists email@example.com as the email address you need to send your ID to. According to the message, you can find this ID at the end of each encrypted file. Cyber criminals offer to decrypt several files for free to prove to you that this is possible but keep in mind that this is just another tactic to make you pay the ransom. We cannot say the exact sum of the ransom because it could be unique in every case. Once you email the creator of Jabacrypter Ransomware, they should disclose the sum, as well as explain how you are expected to pay it. Most likely, you would be asked to set up a crypto-currency wallet and transfer the ransom in Bitcoins, Monero, or another crypto-currency. You should not do that unless you do not care about losing your money, and that is something, unfortunately, no want can protect you against.
As you can probably guess already, deleting Jabacrypter Ransomware is not all that easy, especially if you do not understand this infection, and if you have no idea how to identify its components. The instructions you can see posted below reveal the most common locations for malware launchers, but, of course, we cannot guarantee that this is where you will find this threat. If you are not capable of removing Jabacrypter Ransomware yourself, why don’t you install a trustworthy anti-malware program? It would automatically find and erase ransomware components. If other threats exist, they would be eliminated as well. Another reason to install this software is its ability to protect you and your operating system in the future. Needless to say, if your operating system is not guarded, other threats could invade it soon enough. You also need to figure out how to protect your files in the future, and we suggest using a reliable file backup system.
