Delphi Ransomware is a twisted ransomware infection that comes forth having only one purpose in mind: financial gain. This dangerous program encrypts the user’s personal files and then says that the user has to pay a ransom fee in order to restore the affected files. Needless to say, users should never succumb to these demands. You need to remove Delphi Ransomware from your system instead of paying the ransom fee. It might be challenging to restore the affected files, but you should not give up. If necessary, explore all file recovery options and address a professional technician for further guidance.
As far as the distribution of this infection is concerned, Delphi Ransomware tends to be spread through malicious software bundles and spam emails. It means that users download this dangerous program themselves, although they might not be perfectly aware of it. For example, if it comes bundled with freeware, it might be hard to tell that the installer file carries the ransomware, too. However, you should definitely refrain from downloading software via p2p applications and websites, because there is no guarantee that the zipped files you download will contain only the program you need. When you unzip it and open it, you might accidentally launch the infection.
What’s more, when it comes to spam emails that distribute malware, they might often look like legitimate messages from online shops or financial institutions. Sometimes it also looks like something sent by an individual. Spam campaigns are THAT good at impersonating someone, and that is why users fall for these tricks and download the attached files. If you did not expect to receive an invoice or some document from these unknown senders, you should definitely refrain from downloading the attached files. Of course, sometimes the attached files might look like something important. If that is the case, you can always scan the attached file with a security tool before opening it.
On the other hand, we have to consider the possibility of Delphi Ransomware entering your system. What happens then? Well, the program behaves just like any other ransomware infection out there. It means that the infection scans the system looking for the files it can encrypt. Unfortunately, Delphi Ransomware launches expansive encryption because this program can encrypt all file types. It only leaves system files intact because it needs your computer to function properly if it intends to receive the ransom payment. Other than that, all of your personal files will be locked.
Once the encryption is complete, Delphi Ransomware displays a new pop-up window that carries the ransom note. The instructions displayed by this infection say the following:
Despite the terribly poor English, it is probably clear that Delphi Ransomware gives you a limited timeframe to contact the criminals behind it. Also, it doesn’t say anything about the ransom fee, but you can be sure that the criminals would reply with the ransom amount in mind. Needless to say, paying the ransom is not an option, and you should never consider it.
Another thing we have to be careful about when dealing with Delphi Ransomware is the second button on the ransom note window. It says, “Im fucking faggot! PLEASE DELETE MY SYSTEM!” If you click that button (which of course, you won’t), and go through all the steps, you can seriously kill your system because, at the end of the road, this infection restarts the computer and then deletes the Master Boot Record. It makes the PC unusable, as the system cannot load the Windows anymore.
So, as you can see, Delphi Ransomware is a really dangerous infection, and you must remove it immediately. It is not that hard to delete the program because it doesn’t drop additional files. However, restoring your files might be a challenge, especially if you do not have a system backup. If you do have a backup, you can just delete the affected files, and then transfer the healthy copies back into your PC. If not, you should definitely address a professional, who would give you a list of potential file recovery options.
