If a file !!!SAVE_FILES_INFO!!!.txt is ever dropped on your PC, it is a question of time when you will find your data locked – Ransomware, a harmful malicious application that encrypts personal data on affected computers, is the one responsible for the unexpected appearance of a new file. The malicious application drops the .txt file after it locks data, so if it can be located on your system, you can say goodbye to your precious files. You can purchase a tool from cyber criminals and then unlock all those ruined files with, but, believe us, it is not a smart move. You are free to recover your files from a backup after the full Ransomware removal, but, please, do not encourage cyber criminals to release more infections by purchasing the decryptor from them. Unfortunately, it seems that no free decryption tools are available. A free decryptor might be released one day, but we cannot promise you 100% that this will happen because ransomware infections use encryption algorithms. It takes time to find a way how to crack them. Ransomware is a typical ransomware infection. It shares similarities with other infections using the email provider, for example, Ransomware, Ransomware, and Ransomware. Once Ransomware is launched and starts working on the system, it encrypts all files it manages to find without mercy. All these files receive the .SAVEfiles extension, but they are not renamed. Additionally, users who fall victim to this malicious application find the ransom note !!!SAVE_FILES_INFO!!!.txt dropped on their computers. Even though the ransomware infection does not create a point of execution, users find the note opened on their screens automatically because the file is dropped in the Startup folder as well. It informs the victim that he/she needs a decryption tool and a unique private key to unlock encrypted files. No, cyber criminals will not give it to you even if you beg, but you can purchase the decryption software from them for 500 USD. Whether it is smart to transfer money to malware developers is another question. If you still opt to purchase the decryptor, make sure you transfer money within 72 hours. The decryptor’s price might considerably increase when the time given ends. Do not forget that there are zero guarantees that the decryptor will be sent to you. In other words, you might not get it from the malware author. Additionally, you will encourage the development of new harmful infections by transferring the money cyber criminals want from you.

It should be already clear how Ransomware works, but you probably still do not know how it is distributed. According to researchers, this infection is primarily distributed via spam emails. To be more specific, it comes as an attachment, but it is no doubt not the only method of distribution that might be adopted to promote it. If we are right and it is distributed the same as other crypto-threats, it might be dropped onto users’ computers via weak or completely unprotected RDP connections too. Our specialists say that some users might download Ransomware from a malicious website as well. Users do not know that they agree to download a harmful infection. They realize that it is a computer infection rather than useful software only after their install it on their PCs. Speaking about Ransomware, you do not need to be an expert to find out about its successful entrance. As you already know, the infection immediately locks personal files and then opens the ransom note dropped on the computer. We will explain to you in the next paragraph how you can delete Ransomware, but we want to warn you – you might end up with a similar threat in no time if you keep your system unprotected.

You can disable Ransomware by deleting its launcher and the ransom note it has dropped from the Startup folder. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that you could easily unlock your files too. As mentioned, restoring files from a backup is the only way to solve the problem for free since ransomware infections encrypt files using strong ciphers. Many users expect that their files will be unlocked the second Ransomware is gone from their systems, but, sadly, it is not true.
