Everbe 2.0 Ransomware
Everbe 2.0 Ransomware is a new variant of Everbe Ransomware, which our readers can recognize by the name “Everbe@airmail.cc Ransomware”. These threats were created by cyber criminals who are interested in nothing else but making money using the carelessness and misfortune of Windows users. If they are tricked into letting the malicious infection in, they are pushed into paying a huge ransom fee in return of a decryptor. Unfortunately, this transaction is extremely risky, and there is nothing that can force cyber crooks to keep their promises. This is why most victims dealing with ransomware end up losing money. The bad news is that we cannot offer you a solution to decrypt files. A special decryption key is required, and cyber criminals are unlikely to share it for free. A decryptor that would be compatible with this malware does not exist either. Unfortunately, it is possible that your files were corrupted irreversibly. That being said, you must remove Everbe 2.0 Ransomware, and that is easy to do if you approach the operation from the right angle.
Our research team will not be able to say how exactly Everbe 2.0 Ransomware got in unless they have access to your operating system, but even then figuring things out might be difficult. Of course, there are some guesses we can make. In most cases, ransomware is spread via files attached to misleading spam emails. Do you remember opening any strange emails and attachments recently? According to our malware analysts, the infection could also conceal itself as a fake crack or software keygen that users might download via unreliable file-sharing websites. Once executed, Everbe 2.0 Ransomware quickly deletes volume shadow copies to make it impossible to recover files from backup. Of course, this does not apply to external and online backups, which is the only thing that can save you when you face file-encrypting malware. The ransomware uses RSA-2048 encryption algorithm to corrupt files, and it goes after all of them, except for the system files. You can recognize corrupted files by the “.[eV3rbe@rape.lol].eV3rbe” extension appended to their names. Note that you cannot restore files by removing this added extension.
Although the main task for Everbe 2.0 Ransomware is to corrupt files, it also creates a text file called “Readme if you want restore files.txt.” This file is created in every directory and folder that holds encrypted files. The file was created by cyber criminals, but you can open it without hesitation. The message within the file informs that you must send an email to eV3rbe@rape.lol, and if you have put two and two together, you know that this email address is included in the added extension as well. Users are instructed to write a unique code in the subject line and send the message within 7 days, after which the original sum of the ransom would, allegedly, double. Unfortunately, we cannot say how much exactly cyber crooks are asking or if the same price is introduced to everyone. The ransom message ends with the introduction of a “backup” email address, eV3rbe@tuta.io. We do not recommend communicating with the creator of Everbe 2.0 Ransomware via either of them. As we discussed already, you are unlikely to get what you expect, so you might as well focus on the removal.
We cannot tell you the location or the name of the launcher file that executed Everbe 2.0 Ransomware. We cannot even tell you if this file still exists because it is possible that it deleted itself after execution. This is the only thing that makes manual removal complicated, and why you might choose to install anti-malware software. This certainly is our recommendation. Even if you are capable of deleting Everbe 2.0 Ransomware yourself, you have to think about the future too. Your system is vulnerable, and it could be hit by malware at any point again. Anti-malware software can prevent that from happening. If you choose to take on the task manually, you will need to inspect your operating system to look for the malicious executable. If you do not know where to find it, you can employ the help of a legitimate malware scanner. After that, the only thing left to do is remove all copies of the ransom note file called “Readme if you want restore files.txt”.
