New versions of the Crysis/Dharma Ransomware keep emerging, and our research team is now warning about firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware. This infection is a regular file-encryptor that demands a ransom once all personal files are encrypted. Unfortunately, this infection is not one of those that are capable of faking encryption or that are weak and whose encryptors can be decoded. Once the files are encrypted, they are locked and sealed. The seal is the ".id-[8 character ID].[email@example.com].combo" extension that is added at the end of the files’ names. Note that the 8 character ID is unique for every victim. All Crysis/Dharma Ransomware variants (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware) create unique extensions, but there is no point in discussing them at length because they do not provide us with a lot of information. Note that there’s also no point in deleting these extensions. Your goal is to delete email@example.com Ransomware.
Although firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware could be downloaded by malware that is silently hiding on your operating system, you are most likely to execute it yourself. The launcher of this threat could be represented as a regular, harmless file, and you should be tricked into opening it without suspecting a thing. For example, the launcher could look like a DOC file, and it could be sent to you via email. Once the infection is executed, it is set to auto-start with Windows. Due to this, every time you start the operating system, the infection will be reactivated. New files you create could be encrypted as well, and so we suggest that you perform the removal as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, your files are a subject of interest in this situation, and so you might feel stuck in your tracks. After encryption of the files, the malicious email@example.com Ransomware launches "firstname.lastname@example.org" window to introduce you to some information. The message in the window declares that you have to email your ID number to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org in 24 hours if you want to get your files decrypted. The message also informs that a ransom in Bitcoins would have to be paid, and that is what you would be instructed to do if you emailed cyber attackers.
The devious email@example.com Ransomware also creates a file named "FILES ENCRYPTED.txt," which also lists the same email addresses. This file, according to our research, is created in these folders:
There are quite a few steps that you need to complete if you want to delete firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware manually. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you will succeed anyway because we cannot point you to the launcher file. That is the file that you will need to find on your own, and if you are not able to do it, you have to install anti-malware software. This is not a bad thing at all. In fact, that is what we recommend doing because if this software is installed, you will not need to do anything to remove malware. Also, the security of your operating system will be taken care of. If you do not ensure security, your operating system could become beleaguered with malware again. That is not all that you should do. You also want to back up your files because that is the best protection against damage or loss.
