Domn Ransomware is a clone of Stop Ransomware. However, unlike Stop Ransomware and all other similar threats from this family, this new variant does not create ransom notes after encrypting victims’ data. This suggests that the malicious application could be still in the development stage. To learn all about it, we invite you to have a look at the rest of our article. While reading it, you can discover where the malicious application might come from, how our encountered version works, and how to get rid of it if it sneaks onto your system. Since this could be complicated, we provide a step by step deletion guide showing how to erase Domn Ransomware at the end of this page. Needless to say, we recommend deleting the malicious application with a reliable antimalware tool instead if you do not feel up for erasing it manually.
Domn Ransomware could be spread through various channels. For example, the malicious application might be traveling with Spam emails. Messages from hackers do not always appear to be suspicious, which is why we recommend being careful with any email that falls under the classification of Spam or arrives unexpectedly. Cybercriminals like to pretend to work for reputable companies and to be delivering important documents or other data that, in reality, appears to be malicious. Thus, you can never lose your guard down if you do not want to infect your system accidentally. The smartest thing to do is scan all files coming from unreliable or unknown sources with a reputable antimalware tool. After a scan, your chosen security tool should be able to tell you whether it is safe or not to open the scanned file.
The malicious application does not create any data on its infected devices. It means the threat should run in the folder where its launcher, for example, some unreliable email attachment, was opened. Domn Ransomware may start encrypting files available on an infected device soon after its launch. According to our specialists, the threat should be programmed to encrypt files like text documents, photos, archives, and so on. In other words, the malware should affect data or downloaded by a user, which means none of the program files should get affected. The malicious application’s victims can easily separate encrypted files from the second extension which they ought to be marked with. For instance, a file titled fox.jpg would become fox.jpg.domn.
Usually, threats like Domn Ransomware open ransom notes as soon as they encrypt files to let victims know what happened and what they should do to restore locked data. In most cases, hackers claim to have decryption tools and offer to send them to those who pay a ransom. It may seem odd that this threat does not do so, but our researchers think that the malicious application could still be in development. Meaning, the threat might not be spreading yet. In case it gets updated, and it starts showing ransom notes, we recommend not to panic and rush into anything. Before you decide whether it would be smart to deal with the malware’s creators, you have to think if you can risk losing the sum they may demand in vain. Sometimes cybercriminals cannot provide decryption tools even if they claim otherwise. Not to mention, hackers are not people you should trust, and there is always a possibility they could scam you.
At this point, you might be wondering what you can do to get your data back. Sadly, encrypted files cannot be restored without particular decryption tools. On the other hand, if you have backup copies, you could replace encrypted files with them instead of trying to restore encrypted data back to normal. Of course, before creating new files or uploading your backup data, it would be safest to eliminate Domn Ransomware. One of its removal options is to erase it manually while following the instructions provided at the end of this paragraph. If you think the process is too complicated, we encourage you to employ a reputable antimalware tool. In such a case, you should scan your computer and wait till it detects all possible threats. It should be enough to click the provided removal button, and your antimalware tool ought to take care of all identified malicious applications.
