We want to inform you about a newly discovered ransomware-type computer infection known as Final Ransomware. This malicious software was designed to infect your computer secretly and then encrypt your personal files and demand you pay money for a decryption key. However, we want to point out that this ransomware might be in its early stage of development or just poorly written because, in its current form, it does not look like it is fully functional. Nevertheless, it is quite dangerous, and you should remove it from your PC instead of complying with the cybercriminals’ demands. If you want to find out more about this particular ransomware, then please read this whole article.

Since Final Ransomware is relatively new, there is no concrete information on how its developers distribute it. We suggest that its developers might have set up an email phishing scheme to infect the computers of unwary users secretly. They may send malicious emails to a list of random email addresses that contain this ransomware’s main executable file. We know that the name of the primary executable file can be AppleFinal.exe or FinalRansomware.exe. Nevertheless, since these names (especially FinalRansomware.exe) can cause suspicion, it is possible that the developers can rename them to appear as if they are regular files. The executable might have a double extension to trick you into thinking that it is a document of some sort. Furthermore, the creators might disguise the emails as surveys, invoices, and so on, to trick you into opening the file and triggering the infection.

If your PC becomes infected with Final Ransomware, then it will spring into action immediately and start encrypting your personal files. Our analysis has shown that this program encrypts most files in Downloads, Pictures, Documents, Music, and Videos folders as well as the desktop. The algorithm used to encrypt the files is still unknown, but it is more than likely that it uses either the RSA or AES encryption algorithm. While encrypting your files, it appends them with the ".encrypted" file extension. Once the encryption is complete, this ransomware should render a window that features the ransom note. The note displays a unique user ID as well as the note saying that you have to pay the ransom within 28 days. However, if there is no Internet connection during the encryption, then this ransomware might not show you this window.

If you click the RESTORE button, then Final Ransomware might restore some file types such as .txt and .xml. Nevertheless, it will also corrupt some file types such as .png, and .rar. Therefore, you might be able to get some of your files back at the expense of some other files. Our research has revealed that this ransomware connects to http://marketingdiff{.}com/uploads/ransomware.php to generate the key. This same website features a list of victims whose computers have been infected by this ransomware. You can view this list at The list indicates that the number of computers infected with this ransomware is steadily decreasing. However, given that this ransomware’s developers are not utilizing its full potential, we think that this can change further down the line when they sort out this ransomware and release the real final version.

Unfortunately, at the time of this article, there is no free decryption tool to get you your files back. However, complying with the cyber criminals’ demands is also not an option because they can take your money, but not send you the decryption key. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it from your PC as soon as possible. You can use the removal guide below or get SpyHunter, a powerful anti-malware tool to delete Final Ransomware for you.
