C4H Ransomware is a regular ransomware infection that was created with only one purpose in mind: easy money. The creators of this infection want to push you into spending your money on the decryption tool that is supposed to unlock your files. However, there is no guarantee that these criminals would issue a decryption tool for you. Hence, you should focus on removing C4H Ransomware from your system, and then looking for ways to restore your files. If necessary, don’t hesitate to address a professional who would tell you more about various file recovery options.
As far as we know, C4H Ransomware is yet another version of the previously released Globeimposter Ransomware infection. Our research team says that it is the Horriblemorning variation, and there are a lot of different versions of this intruder. At the same time, it might be challenging to restore the files that were affected by the infection because there is no public decryption tool available. For that reason, it is important to be very careful so that you could avoid such infections. Let’s not forget that ransomware programs usually employ similar distribution tactics, so it shouldn’t be that challenging to avoid them.
So, what should you pay attention to? For the most part, C4H Ransomware and other similar programs will be distributed via spam email attachments. Even if most of the spam gets filtered into the Junk folder, some of the spam messages might still reach your main inbox. These messages will look like online shipping invoices, business offers, financial reports, and other reliable messages. However, you always have to check whether you’ve been waiting for something like that. If the message seems to have reached you out of the blue, you should double-check its credibility.
Also, please do not open all the attached files automatically. Sometimes, browsers are set to automatically open files once the download is complete. Please change these settings, and consider scanning downloaded files with a security tool before you open. When it comes to a document you receive from someone you know, maybe it’s not such a big deal. But if you treat all the other files in the same manner, then it is only a matter of time before you get infected with C4H Ransomware or any other ransomware infection for that matter.
If C4H Ransomware manages to enter your system, you will go through the usual ransomware infection steps. First, the infection will scan your system in search for the files it can encrypt. You will not notice this step, and it will be really short. Then, C4H Ransomware will launch the encryption, and once it’s done, it will display the following ransom note:
As you can see, it’s hard even to say how much you are expected to pay for the decryption because the price is not defined. It’s clear that the people behind C4H Ransomware can pull you around, successfully bullying you into contacting them and paying the ransom, but you should try to resist that. Please note that paying the ransom doesn’t automatically guarantee that you would get your files back. If anything, there is a bigger possibility that the criminals would collect the payment and scram.
Therefore, it is recommended remove C4H Ransomware first, and then look for ways to restore your files later. For instance, it is really easy to get everything back if you have a file backup. That is, if you regularly back up your files on an external hard drive or a cloud drive, it shouldn’t be a problem. Also, C4H Ransomware doesn’t drop additional EXE files, so it is not that complicated to remove it from your system.
If you feel at a loss, and you are not sure what to do, you should address a professional who would help you solve this problem. Also, please do not hesitate to invest in a powerful antispyware tool that would protect your system from similar intruders in the future.
