Although computer security experts always emphasize the importance of employing safe web browsing habits, it is very common that computer users get tricked by cyber criminals, and malicious programs like Cezar Ransomware manage to enter target systems. It might be hard to revert the damage caused by such infections, but it does not mean that you just have to sit there and do nothing about it. Please remove Cezar Ransomware from your system as soon as possible and then work on restoring your files. Even if it is not possible to get every single file back, you should not give up until you have tried everything.
This malicious program gives us a breather because we know where it comes from. Our research team says that it probably hails from the Crysis Ransomware family. We have recently talked about other similar infection that comes from the same group, and it seems that there is an entire group of hackers who make use of the old original code to create a lot of similar infections. It does not mean that Cezar Ransomware is any less dangerous than all the other ransomware programs that we know. In fact, sometimes when hackers make use of a well-established code, they can modify it even further to fit their objectives.
What is the objective of the people behind Cezar Ransomware? It is simple: They want your money. And they will try to collect as much money as possible within a short period of time by bullying innocent users into transferring ransom fees for a decryption key. This decryption key is supposed to help you unlock your encrypted files. The encrypted files were locked when the ransomware entered your system and launched the encryption algorithm. Although it might seem that paying is the only option in this situation, computer security experts always are very clear about it: They say that you should not pay no matter what.
Why? First, there is no guarantee that Cezar Ransomware could actually give you the decryption key. Second, by paying you would only encourage these hackers to continue their criminal activities. And that is not something we want, do we? So right now, you should focus on removing Cezar Ransomware from your computer. When the infection is gone, you can start looking for ways to restore your files. It is never a good idea to transfer healthy files into a drive while a malicious program is still present.
It might be hard to remove Cezar Ransomware manually because the initial installer file could have a random name. Not to mention that looking for the random-name executable files could be very frustrating and time-consuming. Therefore, if you want to be sure that you got rid of all the malicious files before transferring your data back; you should scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner.
You can also try applying the Crysis Ransomware decryptor that was released by Eset, but we would like to point out that there is no 100% chance it would work on Cezar Ransomware. Either way, if you are in doubt about what you should do, you can always refer to a specialist for professional advice.
