GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware decrypts user’s files and appends a .garrantydecrypt extension to all of them. One more sign you should see if your system was infected with this malicious application are text documents dropped in each location containing enciphered data. Inside of these files, victims should find messages asking to contact the hackers behind GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware via firstname.lastname@example.org if they wish to get their files decrypted. We are almost entirely sure the email from the malware’s creators should ask for a payment or in other words a ransom. We do not know how much the malicious application’s developers could ask, but whatever the price is we would not recommend risking your savings. There is a possibility you will not get the tools you need for decryption even if you put up with all demands. Thus, if you do not wish to risk being tricked, we would recommend erasing the malware. To help you with this task we have prepared manual deletion instructions that will be added at the end of the article.
If you wonder how GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware might enter the system, we should tell you it can settle in with malicious email attachments or other doubtful data downloaded from the Internet. This is why users should be extra careful with Spam emails, files from file-sharing web pages, and other unreliable content they might encounter every day. Naturally, if you ever doubt whether the file is malicious or not you should scan it with reliable antimalware software before opening it. The problem is some malware installers pretend to be images, text files, and other harmless data. Therefore, users have to pay attention to other details like who sent the file or whether the message it came with had any grammar mistakes, and so on.
The malicious application encrypts various user’s files such as photos, pictures, videos, text documents, and so on. As a result, the data becomes unusable, and it cannot be opened ever again without decrypting it first. After the process is complete, all the files become marked with the mentioned extension and the malware scatters copies of #RECOVERY_FILES#.txt across all folders containing enciphered data. This text document carries a short message from the GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware’s developers. According to it, there is a way to decrypt your files, and you can learn all about it after emailing the hackers. As we have encountered many such threats in the past, we suspect the malware’s creators will send instructions on how to pay a ransom. In return, they may promise to give decryption tools needed to decipher files soon after the payment is made. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees they will do as they promise and as you can imagine you cannot expect a refund if you do not get the promised tools.
All things considered, it seems to us it would be best to recover whatever files you can from backup copies you might keep on removable media devices or cloud storage. In which case, we would advise not to deal with GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware’s creators and remove the malicious application at once. There are a couple of methods to get rid of GarrantyDecrypt Ransomware. For starters, you could try to eliminate it manually by completing the steps located below this article. They will show how to find the file that could be the malware’s installer and how to delete it.
