Embrace Ransomware is not the kind of infection you could ever embrace. That is because it is out to hit you in the most vulnerable spot – your personal files. Do you have photos or documents you value very much? If you do, we are sure you do not want to lose them, but if the malicious ransomware slithers in, your files will be corrupted by encoding file data with the help of an encryptor. To restore the files, you would need a decryption key, and, of course, you cannot just download one, and cyber criminals will not just send you the key without getting anything in return. Speaking of that, cyber criminals might suggest that a payment could help you obtain a decryptor and recover data, but you must not trust them. By paying the ransom, you are most likely to lose money, and, depending on the size of the ransom, this might be a huge risk. So, what should you do about the decryption of your files, and what should you do to remove Embrace Ransomware? These questions are answered in the report.
The suspicious Embrace Ransomware is very similar to an infection we have discussed already – Everbe Ransomware (also known as Everbe@airmail.cc Ransomware). Were these two threats created by the same malicious party? Everything is possible. Unsecure RDP channels are often exploited when it comes to the distribution of this kind of malware, but there are tons of other methods that cyber crooks can employ to execute the infection successfully. Once executed, Embrace Ransomware immediately encrypts personal files, and it adds the “.[email@example.com].embrace” extension to their names once it is done to help you spot which ones were affected. You might have discovered already that you cannot open these files as per normal, and that is because you need to apply a decryption key to restore them. The creator of the malicious ransomware is quick to introduce you to a file that carries a ransom note. This file is called “!=How_recovery_files=!.txt,” and it is perfectly safe for you to open it. Just do not forget to delete every single copy when you get to the removal part.
The message delivered via the TXT file informs that you must email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to restore files. It is suggested that if you send a special ID code within seven days, you will need to a pay some kind of a ransom. After seven days, the sum should, allegedly, double up. Since we do not know what the original asking price for a decryptor is, we cannot confirm if it goes up in a week. It could be just a scare tactic by Embrace Ransomware to make you pay the ransom as soon as possible. As we discussed already, paying the ransom is not such a great idea as there is a possibility that you would be losing money without gaining anything. Have you been looking into third-party decryption tools? Those exist, but they rarely can aid those dealing with ransomware. Of course, if you find a tool that allegedly can free your files, make sure you research it thoroughly before installing it because the last thing you want is to install more threats that you would need to remove. In a different scenario, your personal files are backed up and safe, and you can delete the corrupted files without remorse.
Do you know what you want to do about Embrace Ransomware? Hopefully, you understand how important it is for you to remove this malware from your operating system. Of course, if you are still not sure whether you want to take the risk of paying a ransom, you might be choosing to postpone the removal, but we advise that you do not think for too long. Deleting Embrace Ransomware can be very easy if you know where the launcher .exe file is. If you do not know this, it might be more convenient and beneficial for you to install anti-malware software. Taking into consideration that this software can also ensure full-time protection, installing it might truly be best.
