Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware is the newest variant of Scarab-Bomber Ransomware. This variant also encrypts data on affected computers and then demands a ransom, so we could say that it does not differ much from its predecessor. Some ransomware infections only pretend that they lock files, but Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware is not one of them. All your documents, music, pictures, videos, and other important files will be completely encrypted if it ever happens that you encounter this threat. In most cases, users encounter it after opening a malicious email attachment. Usually, spam emails are the ones that hold malicious email attachments, so if you do not want to encounter malware, you should not go anywhere near them. If it is already too late to take security measures to prevent Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware from slithering onto the computer, i.e. you have already encountered this threat, there is nothing you can do to turn the clock back. Luckily, it does not mean that you will have to live with the ransomware infection installed on your computer. You will successfully delete this threat from your system if you first read this article and then delete the ransomware infection completely.
The entrance of Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware never goes unnoticed. Once this threat slithers onto users’ computers, it finds where all the most important users’ files are located and encrypts them all right away. If you have noticed that all your files have the .email@example.com filename extension appended, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org, there is no doubt that Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware is the one that has slithered onto your computer and locked your personal files. If it is really the case, you will also find HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES.txt dropped on your system. This file contains a ransom note that, first of all, tells users why no files can be accessed: “Your files are now encrypted!” Then, users find out what they can do to unlock them – they need to pay for the decryption in Bitcoin. The exact decryption price is not indicated in the ransom note. It seems that it depends on how fast the victim drops a message to cyber criminals behind the threat. Usually, decryption tools are not cheap. Additionally, there are no guarantees that the decryptor will be sent to you even if you pay for it, so you should find an alternative way to get your files back even though the ransomware infection tells users not to try to decrypt encrypted data. We highly recommend that you restore your files from your backup instead. Needless to say, you could not do that if you do not have a single copy of your files.
Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware is a new threat, but it might still become prevalent and slither onto your computer one day. You will definitely notice what has happened to your files if the ransomware infection enters your system, but while you still can, you should take all possible security measures to prevent this infection from entering your system without your knowledge. As mentioned at the beginning of this report, this infection should be mainly distributed via spam emails, so please ignore all suspicious emails you receive, especially if they hold attachments. Cyber criminals might employ other distribution methods as well. For example, malware might be placed directly on your system after hacking your RDP connection. Finally, you can download malware yourself from file-sharing or similar websites. There are hundreds of harmful threats you may encounter if you keep your system unprotected, so our piece of advice for you would be to keep your PC disconnected from the Internet until you install a reputable security application on your computer.
None of your personal files will be unlocked when you delete Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware from your system, but it is still a must to delete this infection so that it could not lock more files on your computer. Its ransom note will no longer be automatically opened on your Desktop when you turn your computer on too. Have you decided to delete Yourhope@airmail.cc Ransomware manually? In this case, you will need to delete all malicious components one by one to disable the computer threat. Of course, you can choose an automated malware removal method over the manual one too. In this case, you will only need to scan your system with an antimalware tool once to make all threats gone.
