If Scarab-Lolita Ransomware encrypted your personal files, the chances are that this malicious infection has already deleted itself. According to our research team, the threat even eliminates the copy file that is created after execution. Of course, at least one component of this malware stays behind, and so the fight is not over. If you scroll down quickly, you will find a manual Scarab-Lolita Ransomware removal guide that shows how to complete the elimination of this malicious threat, but there are other options to consider too. Unfortunately, regardless of which method you employ, it is unlikely that you can restore the personal files that the infection corrupts. The files are encrypted using a unique encryption key, and it cannot be deciphered easily. If you are going to look for free decryptors that could help, make sure you are careful because you could stumble upon fake and even malicious programs that only pose as useful software. Also, if you have questions, remember that you can always contact us, which you can do by posting a comment below.
Just by looking at the name of Scarab-Lolita Ransomware we can tell that this infection belongs to the Scarab Ransomware family, just like Scarab-Good Ransomware, Scarab-Glutton Ransomware, Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware, and many other well-known infections that all require removal. It seems that these threats usually spread using spam emails, but we are sure that other methods could be employed too. Once the threat is in, Scarab-Lolita Ransomware starts encrypting personal files immediately. During the process, the Registry Editor and Task Manager tools are disabled to prevent the victim from terminating malicious processes, stopping the infection, and even removing it. Once files are encrypted, the tools are enabled again, and so you might not even notice this. Also, you are more likely to focus on the encrypted files, which should have the “.lolita” extension added to their names. Do not bother deleting this extension and, instead, figure out how to delete the malicious ransomware itself. What about the files? The corrupted ones are likely to be lost for good, but if you have backups, you are safe!
The creator of Scarab-Lolita Ransomware bets on you not having the backups because only then can they convince you to follow their instructions. They are delivered using “How to restore files.txt,” a file whose copies should be created everywhere. According to the message inside, a personal ID shown on the message must be sent to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, after which, the victim would have to “pay for decryption key.” It is not clear how much the attackers want and what the method of payment is, but if we had to guess, we think that the attackers would instruct you to transfer a sum that is equivalent to a few hundred/thousand US dollars to a dedicated Bitcoin wallet. Needless to say, this is not a secure method of payment because there is absolutely nothing that can guarantee a fair transaction. Once you transfer the money anonymously, the attackers can just disappear without even helping you. If you think that this would not happen to you, think again, because recovering data after the payment is unlikely to happen.
Although you should not find any leftovers of the malicious Scarab-Lolita Ransomware, we strongly advise inspecting the operating system just to make sure that your operating system is clean. Hopefully, it is, and you can devise a plan that will help you ensure it stays malware-free for good. We believe that the tool you can benefit from the most is a legitimate anti-malware program. It can automatically protect you against malicious infections and, at the same time, remove those that currently exist on your operating system. In our case, the anti-malware program would delete Scarab-Lolita Ransomware. Unfortunately, protecting the system against malware manually is not easy, and while you might be able to get rid of malicious components manually using the guidance in the instructions below, we cannot guarantee that you would be able to fend off malicious threats all on your own. If you are not ready to take the leap of investing in security software, at least make sure you do not download unfamiliar files/programs, click on random links, interact with ads, open spam emails or ignore security updates.
