Rsalive Ransomware is not a unique infection. Besides the fact that it does not have unique traits, it is not unique overall, and that is because it is just a new version of the infamous Scarab Ransomware. Other infections that work just the same include Scarab-Apple Ransomware, Scarab-Good Ransomware, .crypted034 Ransomware, email@example.com Ransomware, and many others. It is most likely that different parties stand behind these infections, and, unfortunately, we do not know anything about them. The attackers are stealthy, and they use special tricks to ensure their anonymity. For example, when it comes to distribution, the ransomware is usually spread via spam email attachments or using RDP vulnerabilities, and you cannot track cyber criminals using that. Because the attackers cannot be caught and held responsible, they are not obligated to keep their promises, and they make one big promise, which is to decrypt your files if you follow certain instructions. We suggest that you do not do it. Instead, figure out how to remove Rsalive Ransomware.
After successful invasion, Rsalive Ransomware encrypts files, and the “.rsalive” extension should be added to their names. This would make it easy for you to identify the corrupted files, and you would not need to open them one by one to see that they are unreadable. Of course, victims of this malware are unlikely to understand what is going on, which is why a file named “HOW TO RECOVER ENCRYPTED FILES.TXT” is created. This file is not malicious, and so you can open it. That being said, before you do it, understand that the attackers are most likely to give you false information and feed you lies. Also, do not forget to delete this file once you initiate the overall removal of the infection. The message inside the file reveals that files were encrypted and informs that a “Recovery Key” that costs $200 is the only thing that can restore files. According to the instructions inside the message, the victims of Rsalive Ransomware must transfer the money in the form of Bitcoin to 12GFeyrq3RgeLfGSxs3qWn7RnUQW14Ndda – which is the Bitcoin Wallet address – and then send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you pay the ransomware requested by the creator of Rsalive Ransomware, you will not be able to get the money back. Unfortunately, it is unlikely to be exchanged for a decryptor either. If you send the attackers a message, you could put yourself at even more risk. Once the attackers know your email address, they could try to scam you again, and even though they are unlikely to attempt it right away, they are unlikely to pass up the opportunity. Also, your email address could be shared with third parties. In general, we do NOT recommend interacting with the attackers or following their instructions because that is unlikely to benefit you. If you are willing to take risks, make sure you are cautious. For example, you can create a new email account, which you could delete after communicating with the attackers. Of course, it is best if you have your personal files backed up and if you can restore your personal files without having to follow the demands of cyber criminals. In either case, deleting Rsalive Ransomware is an important step, and you want to take care of it as soon as possible.
If you know how Rsalive Ransomware entered your operating system, and you can identify the launcher file, manual removal is an option. Luckily, it does not look like there is anything else to remove besides the ransom note file, which, of course, is not malicious per se. Unfortunately, not all victims will be able to delete Rsalive Ransomware manually, and that is okay. A reliable anti-malware tool can solve the problem immediately, and it can do it automatically. Furthermore, it can secure your operating system, which is incredibly important if you wish to face no new threats in the future. It is also important to keep backup copies for all important personal files because there are thousands of infections that could corrupt them. Hopefully, backups exist already, and you can replace the encrypted files without much trouble. If you still have questions, add them to the comments section.
