If CryForMe Ransomware ever manages to successfully enter your computer, you will find a blue window with a ransom note opened on your Desktop. In addition, you will soon realize that you can no longer access a bunch of your personal files. Like other ransomware-type infections, CryForMe Ransomware should also lock pictures, text files, and other valuable data. The encryption of files takes place after the successful infiltration of the ransomware infection not to make users angry. This is one of the strategies cyber criminals adopt to obtain money from innocent computer users. To put it differently, they know that users will not let go of their money easily, so, by locking users’ valuable files, they give them the reason to make a payment. If you are one of those users who have already found all files locked, do not go to make a payment because a) it is very likely that your files will stay encrypted; b) the ransomware infection will still be left active on your system; c) it is possible to unlock the screen and delete the ransomware infection for free. Let’s first find out more about CryForMe Ransomware and activities it performs on victims’ computers and then we will tell you how to delete this infection and decrypt files. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that the decryption of files will be successful.
Researcher carried out recently by specialists working at 411-spyware.com has clearly shown that this ransomware infection enters computers illegally. In most cases, its entrance is directly associated with opening the malicious email attachment. When it is launched, it starts encrypting files and then opens a window on Desktop. Those encrypted files should all receive a new filename extension .locker or .cryforme, so you will soon realize which of your files have been locked. If users do not understand immediately what has happened to their files, they find out why they cannot open a bunch of them after reading the message left for them on Desktop. Users are also explained how they can recover their files. First, a victim finds out that “nobody can recover your files without our decryption service.” Second, users find out that their files will be decrypted only if they pay 250 EUR in Bitcoin. If you decide to send cyber criminals money, which is, of course, not recommended, do this as soon as possible because the price will increase after 7 days. If you are not going to pay a ransom, it does not mean that you cannot get your files back. If you periodically back up your files, you can recover them all from a backup you have after the full removal of CryForMe Ransomware.
