0day Ransomware was created to encrypt your personal files so that cyber criminals – who created the infection – could demand a ransom payment in return for a decryptor. This threat encrypts personal files, and it should evade all system files, which means that even if it encrypts every single personal file on the computer, it will not crash, and the ransom demands will be delivered without a glitch. Some threats fail to evade system files making a huge mess. The creators of this infection, however, are experienced or are using a fully developed template. According to our research, this threat is a clone of the well-known Dharma Ransomware. Other clones include email@example.com Ransomware, firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware, and Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware. Without a doubt, every single one of these threats must be deleted, but, in this report, we focus on the removal of 0day Ransomware. Keep reading, and you will know what to do next.
The different Dharma Ransomware clones are usually separated by the email addresses that are used. The email address linked to the 0day Ransomware infection is embedded in the extension that is added to the corrupted files – “.id-[ID].[email@example.com].0day.” Due to this, some malware analysts and some victims might recognize it by the name “firstname.lastname@example.org Ransomware.” In any case, this threat is very dangerous because once it encrypts files, they cannot be restored. If you are looking into free decryptors, make sure that you at least research them thoroughly before trusting them. The demand for such tools is very high, and so schemers could be using the opportunity to spread malware using the disguise of allegedly helpful tools. You also need to understand that the creator of 0day Ransomware is likely to be a schemer too. After encryption, they drop a file named “RETURN FILES.txt” on the Desktop with this message inside: “All your data is encrypted! for return write to mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.” We recommend removing this file right away.
If you follow the instructions, you might be exposing yourself to a great deal of security-related problems. The creator of 0day Ransomware will ask you to purchase a decryptor first, but, later on, they could send you malicious files or expose you to phishing scams designed to extract personal information and passwords. This is not the only risk. The immediate risk is losing money for no reason at all. Of course, the attackers will tell you everything you want to hear, including that files can be restored and that the decryptor offered by them is real and effective. The reality, however, is that no one knows if this tool exists, and no one can tell if it would be given to you in exchange for your money. Most likely, it would not. Now that we are on the topic of malicious emails, did you know that 0day Ransomware is usually spread using misleading email messages? The installer of the threat is concealed as a harmless file, and that is the method that many ransomware creators use to distribute their infections. Hopefully, you are more careful about the emails you interact with in the future.
Needless to say, it is important to delete 0day Ransomware from the operating system. Even though that will not recover your personal files, you want to start with a clean slate before going back to your normal day-to-day activities. Some versions of the Dharma Ransomware were known to remove themselves, but we cannot guarantee that you will have 0day Ransomware remove itself. You need to inspect your operating system using a legitimate malware scanner to check if the threat still exists, as well as if other silent threats exist without your notice. Without a doubt, it is easiest to have an anti-malware tool delete all of them automatically, and we strongly recommend installing this tool for the full-time protection it can offer as well. Once your system is clean, you can replace the corrupted files with backup copies. If you had not created backups on external drives or virtual clouds before the attack, it is unlikely that you will be able to recover your personal files.
