Colecyrus@mail.com Ransomware can cause serious damage on your system if it manages to slither onto your computer. This ransomware program targets all your personal files to hit you hard enough to want to pay for the decryption of your encrypted files. The only problem is that you can never know if these crooks will really send you the unique decryption key. We can tell you based on experience that it rarely happens. Unfortunately, unless malware hunters come up with a free tool to recover your files, there is usually no chance for you to get your files back. Well, of course, if you have a recently saved backup in cloud storage or on a portable hard drive, you can still restore your files. But first, you must remove Colecyrus@mail.com Ransomware from your system and make sure that there are no other threats hiding on your PC so you can start anew with a secure computer.
In order to infect your system with this malicious program, you need to receive a spam e-mail with an attachment. Of course, it is not enough to receive this mail because you also need to open it and download its attachment. Since this attachment appears to be a key to an urgent matter, you would probably want to see its content right away. The problem is that this is the moment when you actually infect your system with this dangerous ransomware. It is also possible that this spam has a link in its body that points to a file storage place where you would, again, download the same malicious executable as in the case of the attachment.
This spam usually refers to an important issue that you would normally not be able to resist. This can be anything like an unsettled invoice, a parcel not delivered to your address, a flight booking that went wrong with your providing allegedly wrong banking details, and so on. Such a spam can bewilder even more experienced users because it really looks like an authentic mail from legitimate senders. Sometimes the sender can even pose as the local police; how could you say no to opening this mail, right? Please note that it is not possible to delete Colecyrus@mail.com Ransomware without the possibility of losing all your precious files. This is why you need to be more careful before clicking on a mail to open it. Make sure first that you are actually expecting that mail or that you know its sender.
It is most likely that this ransomware program uses a type of AES algorithm to encrypt your files but we cannot yet confirm this. In this attack you may lose all your photos and other media files, documents, databases, and archives as well. This mean serious damage if you do not have a backup. The encrypted files get a new "email@example.com" extension. This malicious program creates a ransom note file ("Readme.txt") in all the folders where files have been encoded.
You are given 72 hours to comply with the demands of these cyber criminals. You have to send 3 encrypted files not larger than 2MB to "firstname.lastname@example.org" and you are promised to get them back decrypted along with the decryption key. Although it is up to you whether you believe these villains or not, we do not recommend that you contact them or send them money at all.
