RSA-4096 Ransomware

RSA-4096 Ransomware might seem like a unique infection, but, in fact, it is identical to a well-known threat, TeslaCrypt Ransomware. We have already shown how to delete this threat via a report that was created after analyzing it. This report, of course, analyzes the newest variant. Just like all other threats from the same family, this infection can exploit security vulnerabilities and backdoors to slither into Windows operating system without being recognized or even noticed. In some cases, the threat could be downloaded by other infections or dropped using unauthorized remote access to the system silently. In other cases, victims themselves could execute the infection by opening spam email attachments, downloading unfamiliar software, or interacting with malicious links. In any case, if the threat manages to slither into the system, it can quickly encrypt files using the RSA-4096 key, and that is why this threat is named like that. Without a doubt, you need to remove RSA-4096 Ransomware, and if you have no clue how to do it, you should continue reading.

Whether you recognize the infection as RSA-4096 Ransomware or TeslaCrypt Ransomware, there are several different variants of this malware that you might be dealing with. Popularly, these are usually known by the names Teslacrypt.A, Teslacrypt.B, Teslacrypt.C, Teslacrypt 1.0, Teslacrypt 2.0, and so on. The variants of this malware can be distinguished by the unique extensions that are added to the encrypted files. Some of these extensions are “.mp3,” “.micro,” “.ttt,” and “.xxx”. In all cases, removing the added extension does not solve the problem. If your personal files are encrypted, there is nothing that can help you but a decryptor, and it is in the hands of cyber criminals. The creator of RSA-4096 Ransomware introduces the victims to the “private key and decrypt program” via a ransom note file that is created in every single affected folder. Different types of files can be used to deliver the random note, but the contents do not change. Recovery+[5 random characters].html, Recovery+[5 random characters].png, and Recovery+[5 random characters].txt are the names of the ransom note files. Once you read the message and initiate the removal of the ransomware, you have to eliminate these files as well.

The ransom message of RSA-4096 Ransomware does not actually present useful information. To get more details, you need to visit one of the linked pages, where you are introduced to the actual demands of paying the ransom. This is why the threat is classified as “ransomware.” Now, whether or not you pay the ransom is completely up to you, but if you want our advice, we do not recommend it. Sure, this might be the only option anyone can offer you to recover files, but if you believe that an option offered by cyber criminals is trustworthy, you could be sadly mistaken. Therefore, even if you pay the ransom, you could end up in the same place; however, besides losing personal files, you would also lose your money. If the ransom is big, this would be a huge loss. Are your files backed up online or on external drives? If they are, you are in luck because that is the only solution to this problem. If backup copies exist, you do not even need to worry about the original files being encrypted. In this case, you can easily remove the corrupted files.

It does not take impressive skill or experience to successfully delete RSA-4096 Ransomware from the operating system. Unfortunately, you cannot save your personal files by eliminating this threat, which is exactly why its creator did not hide it better. Of course, even if all of your personal files are corrupted, you still need to remove the infection because you want to start fresh, and if backups exist, you might even transfer copies of personal files back onto your computer. Hopefully, you have the ability to do that. If you can manually remove RSA-4096 Ransomware, go ahead to take care of this infection immediately. If you are not sure what you are doing, install anti-malware software. It will find and erase all malicious files and components automatically. You will need to install this software to keep your system protected anyway, and so you might as well do it now.
