FuckTheSystem Ransomware is a computer infection that is more of a scare than an actual devil’s spawn. The program may look extremely dangerous, but you can put it under control with ease. Please continue reading this description to find out more about the program, and how to remove FuckTheSystem Ransomware from your system. While you are at it, please do not forget that acquiring a licensed antispyware tool is one of your best bets when you need to protect your system from potential intruders in the future. It is always a lot better to spend a bit more on prevention than deal with the infection later on.
True to its name, FuckTheSystem Ransomware encrypts your files alright, but computer security experts actually classify this program as part of the so-called Stupid Ransomware family. There is an entire group of programs called Stupid Ransomware because those programs are created using an open source code. And that open source code already has a decryption key in it, so technically, spreading such a ransomware program is futile. There are also decryption tools available for such programs, and you can easily find them online.
As far as the file encryption is concerned, FuckTheSystem Ransomware employs probably the most common AES encryption algorithm. Of course, just because it is common, it does not mean that it is easy to decrypt it. You would not be able to do that on your own without the decryption key. During the encryption, FuckTheSystem Ransomware leaves the original filename intact, adding yet another extension to it. For instance, a dog.jpeg file would become a dog.jpeg.anon file once the encryption is complete. The program also affects most of the commonly-used files. Hence, if there were no decryption tool available, you could be sure that you would not be able to access most of your files anymore.
Unlike most of the ransomware programs, FuckTheSystem Ransomware does not drop any ransom note, and it does not display information about payment or how to restore your files. It just says that “Your All File Are Encrypted,” and the program urges you to “Enter Password For Decrypted Your Files.” The thing is that you can decrypt your files with the password provided in this description, so it is easy to see just how random and useless this ransomware is. In fact, it is quite possible that it is just a test run before its developers release something bad and dangerous.
So you might as well consider yourself lucky you got infected just with FuckTheSystem Ransomware. You will also know how to avoid similar intruders in the future because this ransomware app clearly spreads via spam email attachments. Do not open unfamiliar emails and files that come with them just like that. Scan the attached file with a security tool if necessary. It might not be as easy the next time.
