If you believe what the hackers say, the needed decryption tools should be delivered to the victim via email. However, the truth is there are no guarantees these people will hold to their end of the deal. Naturally, if you do not want to risk being tricked, we would recommend not to pay any attention to the displayed ransom note. Instead, we suggest deleting the malicious application with the instructions located at the end of this article or with a reliable antimalware tool of your preferences. Of course, if you would like to get to know Ransomware better before deciding what to do with it, you should read the article first.

The malware is almost identical to a threat known as Dharma Ransomware, which is why we believe it should be spread in similar ways. For example, Ransomware could be distributed through malicious email attachments, unreliable software installers, and so on. The truth is, its launcher could be any recently downloaded file. The hackers might make it look like a harmless text file or a picture, which is how many users launch such malicious applications without realizing it. To avoid making such a mistake, you should be cautious with emails coming from unknown sources. Especially, if they make you panic and demand you click some link or open an attached file immediately. Also, users should watch out for software installers distributed via P2P file-sharing websites and other untrustworthy sources. In the end, if you are suspicious, it would be better to scan the doubtful file with a reliable antimalware tool first.

The main malware’s task is to encrypt victim’s data to gain a leverage later on when the malware displays a ransom note demanding to pay for decrypting user’s files. This is why Ransomware should start decrypting user’s files soon after its launch. The encrypted files can be separated by looking at their extension. If you see an additional extension containing a random ID number, the hackers’ email address and .bgtx (e.g.,[].bgtx, the file should be locked. Once all of the targeted files are affected the threat is supposed to show a ransom note announcing that all of your files were encrypted. As explained before, Ransomware’s ransom note should ask to contact the hackers and mention the user would have to pay a ransom in order to get decryption tools for his files. The offer for decryption of one small file might sound reassuring, but the truth is even if the malicious application’s developer decrypt your file it does not prove they will send you the needed decryption tools. Under such circumstances, we do not recommend putting up with any demands.

The safest option would be to recover files from backup copies, although we recommend doing so only after the malware gets erased. If you decide to get rid of Ransomware too, there are two ways you can remove it. For starters, you could try to complete the instructions available below to eliminate the malicious application manually. If the task appears to be more complicated than you expected, you could pick a reliable antimalware tool instead. Perform a full system scan so the tool could detect the ransomware and other possible threats. Then click the application’s provided deletion button and all of the identified threats should be erased at the same time. Lastly, if you think you require more assistance or want to ask something else about Ransomware, you could leave a comment below this text.
