No one wants to get infected with Infected Ransomware or any other ransomware application, but if it happens that this program enters your computer, please stay calm. It is possible to restore your files with a public decryption tool that is currently available, so you should focus on removing Infected Ransomware either manually or with an automated antispyware tool. Please scroll to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions. Afterward, be sure to invest in licensed security that can safeguard your system.
Of course, keeping in mind the nature of ransomware infections, a security application is not enough to protect you from them. You should also reevaluate your web browsing habits and how you deal with unfamiliar content. You see, Infected Ransomware and other ransomware infections are usually distributed via spam emails. It means that users initiate the malware installation themselves. So it is possible to stop these dangerous programs from entering target systems if users learn more about ransomware distribution.
For the most part, spam emails should be filtered into the Junk folder, but if we’re talking about a spear-phishing attack, then it might reach your main inbox, too. The email messages that carry ransomware often look like legitimate emails either from reputable companies or from individuals. And ransomware installers also look like ordinary MS Word or PDF files. These emails tend to come with an urgent message that forces the user to take action. The action usually involves opening the attached file, and gullible users do so without even scanning the malicious file first. Consequently, Infected Ransomware (or any other ransomware infection for that matter) enters the system.
As far as the origins of Infected Ransomware are concerned, this infection is another version of Aurora Ransomware. Thus, the program behaves just like the previously released versions, and there is no surprise there. When the file encryption is complete, the infection adds the “.infected” extension to all the files. For instance, a dog.jpeg file would look like dog.jpeg.infected after the encryption.
Since the main objective of the infection is to collect payments for the decryption keys, Infected Ransomware also drops a ransom note in every folder that contains encrypted files. There are at least three different ransom note files, but all those files contain the same ransom note:
It might sound believable, but now that you know there is a public decryption tool for Infected Ransomware (which is available for free), you do not need to even consider the things this infection says. It is for the best to ignore the ransom note and then remove Infected Ransomware.
Of course, there is one thing you can do once Infected Ransomware is removed, and your files are safe again. You should back them up. It just means that you should save copies of your files either on an external hard drive or on a cloud drive. In fact, the latest operating system versions offers you to save your files on their cloud storage services because that is the most reliable way to protect your data against a ransomware infection. Not all programs are like Infected Ransomware, and most of the time, there is no public decryption tool available, so you shouldn’t take your chances.
When you set to remove Infected Ransomware, you need to terminate all the recent files you have downloaded. If you know exactly, which file installed the infection on your computer; you can delete it at once. This program doesn’t drop any additional files on the affected system, so the manual removal is not complicated.
On the other hand, if you do not feel confident about manual removal, you can always get yourself a reliable security tool that will scan your PC and remove all the malicious files and applications automatically. However, please remember that a security tool is just one part of the deal. It is also important to educate yourself about ransomware distribution tactics, so you could recognize them in the future.
