Princess Evolution Ransomware
If you do not take care of your operating system’s security, you could end up letting in Princess Evolution Ransomware without even realizing it. This malicious infection is a true Trojan horse that can take on any believable disguise just to trick gullible users into letting it in. If you do not delete it right away – and you are unlikely to do it if you do not recognize malware – the infection can quickly find and encrypt your most precious personal files. Is that what you want? Of course, it is not. So, if you still have time, quickly employ security software capable of defending you against malware. Next, back up files using cloud storage or removable drives. This is a double-defense mechanism, and even if anti-malware software fails – which it shouldn’t – your files will remain safe. If your system was infected, you want to remove Princess Evolution Ransomware right away, and the guide provided in this report will help you.
Do you open spam emails? Do you download files from unreliable websites? Do you visit unreliable sites? If you answer “yes” to at least one of these questions, you are in trouble. Infections like Princess Evolution Ransomware, PooleZoor Ransomware, Cmb Dharma Ransomware, or email@example.com Ransomware cannot spread themselves, and the victim has to be tricked into letting them in. So, every time you carelessly download a keygen or an illegal version of an attractive program, or open a misleading file or link sent via spam email, you put yourself at risk. Our researchers report that third parties are involved in the distribution process, and they are promised 60% of the profits, which means that the distribution attacks of Princess Evolution Ransomware can be wider and more aggressive. If you do not notice the infection and then delete it right away, it can start acting in a malicious manner. It is worth mentioning that the threat checks for a mutex (hoJUpcvgHA) and a file (%AppData%\MeGEZan.VDE) before running. If they exist, it does not run. That does not mean that removal isn’t something to worry about.
After execution, Princess Evolution Ransomware records information about the infected system and sends it along with a decryption key to 188.8.131.52:6901. It then starts encrypting files, and it can do that using XOR and AES-128 algorithms. Once files are corrupted, they cannot be opened, and that is because their data is jumbled up. Thankfully, you do not need to go through every file to find the encrypted ones, as Princess Evolution Ransomware appends a unique extension to their names. This extension is made up of 4 to 6 characters, and it is also represented in the ransom note. The malicious ransomware has three files to deliver this note. These are HTML, TXT, and URL files all named (_H0W_TO_REC0VER_[random]. The instructions in the file suggest downloading a Tor Browser, visiting a special website, entering a unique ID code, and then, most likely, paying a huge ransom. Should you follow these instructions? If you do not want to waste your money, you should not do this. Your money will definitely land into the pocket of the creator of the ransomware and the third-party distributor, but your files will not be decrypted. So, what will you focus on, the removal of the ransomware, or the instructions of cyber criminals?
You have to delete Princess Evolution Ransomware one way or the other, and the path you are likely to choose depends on your experience and preference. Most users might desire to delete the threat manually, but that is not an option for everyone. First of all, the launcher of the file could be anywhere, and its name is unknown. So, if you cannot find it, this is not what you should be focusing your energy onto. Second, you need to look at the bigger picture. Let’s say you manage to remove Princess Evolution Ransomware successfully. What’s next? Your system might be corrupted by other threats, and you also could let in new infections soon. This is why implementing anti-malware software is what you should be doing. This software will automatically delete all threats and reinstate Windows security so that malware cannot attack and terrorize you again.
