It is always a relief when we need to describe a decryptable ransomware infection. 'Notice From Microsoft Corporation' Ransomware is a program that already has a public decryption tool, available at various computer security websites. Therefore, if you have been affected by this intruder, you can remove 'Notice From Microsoft Corporation' Ransomware at once, and then decrypt your files with the free decryption tool. On the other hand, if you have a full system backup in an external hard drive or someplace else, you can also just delete the infected files and transfer the backup data to your main drive.
If it is your first time getting infected with a ransomware program, you may not realize it is a dangerous security threat at first. The reason is that 'Notice From Microsoft Corporation' Ransomware is good at pretending to be an official representative of the Microsoft Corporation. After all, when the infection takes place, the program locks your screen and displays this message:
All activities on this computer have been recorded. All your files are encrypted as our government order. We used ZhuangZi encryption method to encrypt your files. Your computer has been blocked due to violation of Copyright and Related rights law and illegal using and distributing copyrighted contents.
Quite a few users are involved in copyrighted content sharing activities, so they might think that they have been busted by the government, thus pushing them into paying the ransom fee. However, 'Notice From Microsoft Corporation' Ransomware is nothing but a malicious infection based on an open-source ransomware code. It must have entered your computer via spam email attachments, so it means that you downloaded and installed the program yourself. It is usually possible to avoid getting infected with such applications if you do not open emails that seemingly come from unfamiliar sources. What’s more, it is always possible to scan an unfamiliar attachment with a security tool before opening it, thus saving you the trouble of getting infected.
This program expects you to pay over $600USD as a “fine” for illegal activity. It asks the infected users to contact them via the firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, as it does not provide a bitcoin wallet address on the ransom message. Of course, it is already obvious that you should not pay the ransom because there is a public decryption tool that can help you retrieve your files for free. What you need to focus on is the 'Notice From Microsoft Corporation' Ransomware removal.
It may require a little bit of computer knowledge because you will first need to kill the screen lock message that displays the ransom note. For that, you will need to use the Safe Mode. If you do not want to deal with this tedious task on your own, you can always invest in a security tool that will do everything for you.
