File Spider Ransomware can be encountered by users from Croatia, Serbia, or Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a malicious file-enciphering program that locks user’s personal data with a particular encryption algorithm. During the process, it generates a decryption key that could restore all of the damaged files, but the key gets sent to a secret server belonging to the malware’s developers. Sadly, in exchange of it the hackers want you to transfer them a particular amount of money. However, the worst part is there is not knowing whether they will hold to their end of the bargain. It means if you agree with their terms you might put your savings at risk because File Spider Ransomware’s creators might try to extort even more money from you or they may just not bother to deliver the promised key. Thus, we advise you not to take any chances and erase the malicious program immediately. Probably the easiest way would be to use a reliable security tool, but if you feel up to the task, you could try the recommended deletion instructions located at the end of the text.
So far it seems the malware could travel with malicious text documents that might be sent to users via email. Besides File Spider Ransomware there are lots of other infections spread the same way, which is why we always recommend being extra cautious with data sent by someone you are not familiar with. Clearly, the consequences might be severe as in this case the malware might encipher all data except the files located in the Application Data, Boot, PrefLogs, Program Data, Program Files, Program Files (x86), and some other directories that contain data belonging to the computer’s operating system or other software. Sadly, as you realize, the threat is after user’s private data, e.g., his photographs, archives, various documents, videos, music files, and so on. During this process File Spider Ransomware does not change any titles, but it adds an additional .spider extension at the end of all encrypted files’ titles, and then the described files become unusable.
Furthermore, after the encryption process, the malicious program should announce its presence by placing a window with a ransom note on top of the user’s screen. The text inside of it should demand to pay a ransom and threaten to destroy encrypted data if the user erases the malicious program instead. We do not think the infection is actually capable of doing so and therefore we advise eliminating the threat. Its removal may not decipher encrypted data, but at least it would allow you to clean the system and start anew. Not to mention, paying the ransom does not reassure that you will be able to get the enciphered files back either since it all depends on File Spider Ransomware’s developers and the truth is such people cannot be trusted. If you think the same, we urge you not to wait any longer and delete the infection at once.
Luckily, the malware’s removal is not so difficult, although the task could appear to be a bit complicated to less experienced users. Still, there is no need to worry as the deletion instructions placed a bit below this paragraph will explain how to get rid of File Spider Ransomware manually. There is one other way to erase the malicious program if you are willing to install a security tool. Then the user could perform a full system scan and remove all identified threats by merely pressing the deletion button. All you have to do is pick a trustworthy antimalware tool from a reliable developer.
