Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware is a threat that will enter your computer to lock files on it. Cyber criminals have developed a malicious application locking personal files, including documents and various media files, on victims’ computers in order to extract some money from users more easily. They know that users will not transfer a cent to them unless they give them a reason to make a payment, so they have programmed Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware to lock almost all users’ files, including some Windows OS files. As a consequence, there is a possibility that your Windows could no longer load up after the restart. Malicious software developers will try to convince you that you will get all your files decrypted once you send a ransom to the provided Bitcoin wallet address, but there are no guarantees that this will happen, so even if you are told that the size of the ransom will increase once the countdown timer located on the opened window reaches zero, you should not send a cent to cyber criminals behind Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware. No matter what you decide to do, you must erase the ransomware infection from your computer because it will stay active, meaning that you might find even more files encrypted on your system. The removal of this threat will not be something very easy because it also makes changes in the system registry, but the good news is that it is a decryptable ransomware infection. In other words, free decryption software that could decrypt encrypted files for free exists, meaning that there is no need to send the ransom to unlock them. Of course, before you download the free decryptor from the web and use it to unlock your data, make sure Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware is removed fully from the system.
Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware has been designed to encrypt files on victims’ computers, so it will do that the first thing on your system too if it ever manages to slither onto your computer. This infection will lock a bunch of personal files and many files in %WINDIR% - Windows directory. All encrypted files get the .bitcoin extension appended, so you will surely notice which files have been affected by this nasty threat. You will also find bitcoin2018.txt in all affected folders. This is a file that contains a ransom note. Users are told that they need to send “$100 worth of bitcoin” to the provided address and contact cyber criminals by the email address indicated in the ransom note - MildredRLewis@teleworm.us. A red window with the ransom note should also be opened on your Desktop after the successful entrance of this threat. You should be able to close it normally, i.e. by pressing Alt+F4 on your keyboard. Unfortunately, it would not be easy to unlock those encrypted files. You will be told that you could only get your files back only if you send the ransom, but it is not true. As mentioned, free decryption software is available. You could use it after deleting the ransomware infection fully from the system. You should not even consider paying money to cyber criminals because there is a huge possibility that your files will stay encrypted. There are many cases when crooks do not unlock files for users. In such a case, they do not return users’ money either, which leaves them both without their files and money.
If you have not encountered Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware yet, you can still prevent this ransomware infection from entering the system. There is not much information about its distribution, but it should be spread like other ransomware infections much, according to specialists. That is, it should also be actively spread via spam emails. Do not go anywhere near them, especially if they hold attachments, if you do not want to find malicious software installed on your computer. Our security specialists also say that users should download applications only from trustworthy websites. Dubious pages might contain malware that pretends to be reliable software.
You will remove Bansomqare Wanna Ransomware from your system by performing only two removal steps. First, you need to erase all recently downloaded files from your computer. Second, you need to access the system registry and delete the entry of the ransomware infection from the Run registry key. There is a quicker way to clean the system too. You can perform a full system scan with an antimalware scanner instead of going to erase the ransomware infection manually.
