Epoblockl Ransomware encrypts various documents, pictures, and other data located on the infected device, except files associated with the operating system. Afterward, the malicious application is supposed to display a ransom note asking to contact the hackers and pay a ransom in exchange for decryption tools. Strangely, the sample we tested showed a note asking for 0 BTC. This could be either a mistake, or it might mean the malware is still in the development stage. Threats that are not yet finished often show messages asking for ridiculously huge prices or nothing at all. Probably, hackers do not see any point mentioning the price before releasing the finished version. One way or another, if you came across this malicious application and you have no wish to put up with any demands, we advise deleting Epoblockl Ransomware with no hesitation. You can find more information about it if you continue reading this article. Also, there are removal instructions at the end of the text if you decide you want to erase the malware manually.
Before we start discussing Epoblockl Ransomware’s working manner or its removal, we ought to explain how it might be distributed. Usually, cybercriminals distribute malicious installers of ransomware applications via Spam emails, unreliable file-sharing websites, suspicious advertisements, etc. The launchers might be made to look harmless, so the user would open them without suspecting anything. Needless to say, to avoid making such a mistake, you should always scan all files obtained from doubtful sources with a reliable antimalware tool even if they do not seem to be dangerous.
On the other hand, if the malicious application is indeed still in the development stage, it is doubtful it would be spread widely. If its creators wish to test it, the malware could be distributed among a particular amount of targeted victims. One way or the other if you do come across it, Epoblockl Ransomware might encrypt a lot of files that could be important to you, as our researchers say the threat targets a lot of different file types. Also, files affected should receive a second extension called .Epoblockl, for example, picture.jpg.Epoblockl. As we mentioned in the beginning, it should not encrypt data belonging to the computer’s operating system. That is most likely because the malware’s developers want the victims to be able to view their prepared ransom note with no trouble.
The ransom note might appear on a pop-up window displayed on the victim’s screen and in a text document that could be dropped on the victim’s Desktop or other locations containing encrypted files. According to it, Epoblockl Ransomware encrypts victim’s data with the AES-128 encryption algorithm. It should also mention an email address that the victims ought to use to contact the hackers and learn how to pay a ransom. The note our tested sample displayed said the user should pay 0 BTC immediately. Of course, those who may receive updated variants of the malicious application could see a different sum. What you ought to know is that cybercriminals cannot be trusted and by putting up with their demands, you could risk losing your savings for nothing.
What we mean to say is the hackers could promise decryption tools, but it does not mean they will deliver them as promised. Provided you do not want to take any chances or pay those who ruined your data when there are no guarantees they will help you restore it; we advise deleting Epoblockl Ransomware. One of the ways to get rid of it for good is to use a reliable antimalware tool that could remove the malicious application form the computer for you. The other way is to locate and erase files belonging to the malware manually. This task could be slightly complicated, which is why we are placing step by step instructions at the end of this paragraph.
