Rezm Ransomware is a malicious threat. Among other types of malicious threats, it is pretty vicious, and that is because it goes after the personal files that are found on the infected Windows operating system. Needless to say, people are protective over their personal files, including documents, photos, or home videos, and they do not want anything bad to happen to them. Unfortunately, cybercriminals know that, and they are using it against Windows users. Once the ransomware is executed, it encrypts the found personal files, which means that it locks them, and they cannot be unlocked with a click of a button. Instead, a special decryption program is needed, and in most cases, only the creators of file-locking infections have such programs. If you are currently thinking about fulfilling the demands of your attackers, don’t. There is another solution for you. Besides discussing that, we also discuss how to remove Rezm Ransomware. If you are interested, continue reading.
STOP Ransomware is the predecessor of Topi Ransomware, MOOL Ransomware, BBOO Ransomware, Reha Ransomware, Rezm Ransomware, and hundreds of other infections. They all look and work the same. Before they can encrypt personal files, they have to invade vulnerable systems, and not all of them can be breached. That all depends on how their owners are acting. If you have your system guarded by legitimate anti-malware software, you can be careless in some ways. However, if you do not have your system guarded, you do not have the luxury to relax. Every download and every click could lead to the invasion of malware. Rezm Ransomware, according to our researchers, usually spreads using spam emails, downloaders from unreliable sources, and RDP vulnerabilities. The execution of the threat is set up in a way that you would not understand what has happened. Obviously, if you do not delete the infection immediately, your files get encrypted. After this, the ".rezm" extension is added to their names. Note that while you can rename the file and remove the added extension, that will not help you.
After encryption, Rezm Ransomware drops a file named "_readme.txt." This is known as the ransom note file. It states that your files were encrypted and that “the only method of recovering” them is employing a decryption tool with a unique decryption key. The attackers want you to think that they can provide you with the decryptor and the key if you email them at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and then pay a ransom of $490. This is not a lot, when compared to the ransom demands of some other threats, but even $1 is too much. Well, if your personal files were encrypted with an offline key, you should be able to get all files back with the help of a legitimate and free STOP Decryptor that was created by malware researchers. Obviously, if you are going to download it, you need to make sure that you do not install fake lookalikes by accident because that could lead to you having to remove more threats. Of course, if you have your own backups/copies of personal files, you do not need any tools. Delete Rezm Ransomware and then use your backups to replace the corrupted files.
You should be able to delete Rezm Ransomware using the guide below, but only if you are able to identify malicious files. Needless to say, manual removal is never the ideal option because it is always possible that there are other threats that you need to delete. Also, you run the risk of missing important components and allowing the threat some functionality. In this case, our recommendation is that you install legitimate anti-malware software. It will automatically remove Rezm Ransomware, and if other threats exist, they will be removed too. The most important thing about this software is that it can also enable full-time Windows protection, without which, you are bound to face other threats sooner or later. Hopefully, after you delete the threat and secure your system, you can eliminate the corrupted files and replace them with backups. Note that there are thousands of file-encryptors in the virtual world, and even if you secure your system, you still need to double-down on the security of your personal files. Always have backup copies stored someplace safe, outside the computer, and you will never need to lose another file.
