Researchers have recently detected a new Delphi-based malicious application developed to obtain money from users - RSAUtil Ransomware. Although it has not infected many users yet and seems to be unpopular at present, it might still sneak onto your computer one day. Users who frequently download free software from the web and tend to open all emails they receive have the highest chance of encountering this malicious application. RSAUtil Ransomware usually enters computers unnoticed, but it does not take long for users to realize that this ransomware infection is inside the system because it opens a black window on Desktop after slithering onto the computer and encrypting users’ personal files (e.g. documents, images, music files, videos, etc.). Actually, not all the users who detect RSAUtil Ransomware on their computers discover their files encrypted. According to specialists at, it is because this infection does not always work properly. Keep in mind that you must delete this crypto-threat from your system no matter it has encrypted your files or not because keeping ransomware installed is like sitting on a bomb.

RSAUtil Ransomware has been developed by cyber criminals to easily obtain money from users, so it is not at all surprising that this threat starts working the second it successfully enters the system. It first scans the computer and finds users’ valuable files. Then, it starts the encryption process. All those encrypted files receive a new filename extension{unique ID}, so users can easily see which of their files have been locked. If you encounter a properly working version of this threat, you will find out quickly that you cannot access the majority of your files. A window opened on Desktop right after the encryption of files tells users that they need to obtain a decryptor to unlock them. Of course, users will not get it for free. The Bitcoin address necessary for making a payment for the decryption key will only be revealed to users if they write an email to or If, for any reason, your files have not been encrypted after the entrance of this computer threat, do not even bother contacting cyber criminals because, evidently, you do not need a decryptor. In this case, your only task is to fully remove RSAUtil Ransomware. Actually, you should not hurry to purchase the decryption key even if your files have been locked too. Our specialists are strictly against sending money to developers of malicious software because, according to them, they will never stop developing malicious software if they always get what they want, i.e. money from users.

Like other Delphi-based ransomware infections it shares similarities with, e.g. Amnesia Ransomware and Extractor Ransomware, this infection enters computers illegally. Specialists have observed that all files of this ransomware infection are placed in one .ZIP archive, e.g. svchost.exe, .msvcr90.dll, and libeay32.dll, and, consequently, they are all spread as one unit. It is still unclear how it is spread the most frequently; however, according to specialists, it should travel like other ransomware infections. That is, it should be spread as an attachment in spam emails. Needless to say, it ends up on the system the second a malicious attachment is opened. Of course, it is not the only distribution strategy that exists. It is known that ransomware infections might also be dropped by Trojans. Additionally, they might be promoted as decent software on file-sharing websites, so if your PC is unprotected, the chances are high that you will encounter a ransomware infection again soon.

RSAUtil Ransomware has several files packed in a .ZIP archive, but if you have already extracted them, they might be anywhere on your computer. You need to find and erase them all to delete this ransomware infection fully from your system. If it happens that even our manual removal guide does not help you to find and erase those files from your computer, use an automatic malware remover – the single scan with it and all the threats will be gone from the system. It should be emphasized that your files, if you have found them encrypted, will not be unlocked for you if you erase this infection from your PC. Of course, it is still a must to eliminate it.
