Satan’s Doom Ransomware is a serious infection, and you cannot ignore it. In fact, you might be unable to ignore it even if you want to because when this infection invades the operating system, it might be able to lock the screen. Behind the lockdown, the ransomware hides encrypted files. It is hard to say how many of them could be encrypted, and while some could look at a few important files, others could find thousands of important personal files locked. Unfortunately, the threat encrypts these files in a very complicated manner, and so decrypting them is impossible. There is always a possibility that a decryptor would become available, but you should not rely on that. Out of the hundreds of file-encrypting threats we have researched, only a few of them were decryptable. That being said, even if your personal files are lost irretrievably, there is one thing you still need to take care of. Of course, we are talking about deleting Satan’s Doom Ransomware. You can learn how to remove the threat by reading this report.
When Satan’s Doom Ransomware invades the system, it might create copies of its main .exe file in the %TEMP% directory. Next, it should encrypt files, and when it does that, you should find the “.locked” extension in their names (that is, if you can get passed the screen-locker). After the encryption, the threat should change the background image and create a TXT file on the Desktop. Since the victim is meant to read the information within the file, our research team is doubtful about the screen-locking function. Maybe the creator of Satan’s Doom Ransomware has made an error, and the infection is not actually meant to lock the screen at all. It would not be surprising to see this threat functioning disorderly because it is unlikely that it was built by someone with experience. This threat is built using the same code (Hidden Tear) that has been used for the development of Crypt0 HT Ransomware, Rastakhiz Ransomware, Jhash Ransomware, and hundreds of other threats alike. All of them deserve removal.
The “READ_IT.txt” file created by Satan’s Doom Ransomware on the Desktop informs that the victim needs to send Bitcoins for a decryption code, but there is no specific information. This information can be found via the screen-locker window, where 13w18TAAS3e4S8Z9W9Rkks734NbP6G7r8z is listed as the Bitcoin Address to which the ransom must be transferred. The victim is requested to transfer 250 USD-worth of Bitcoins, which, at the moment, is around 0.02 BTC. It is suggested that the payment must be made in four days, after which, the ransom would rise up to $500. Three more days later, the decryption key would be removed. Whether or not any of this is true, we cannot confirm, but our experience indicates that you are unlikely to get a decryptor and get your files unlocked even if you pay the ransom. Should you plead with cyber crooks by emailing them at CR7213uDS32s@protonmail.com? If you do not want them to flood you with misleading messages and, potentially, malicious attachments, this is not a good idea. All in all, whether or not you pay the ransom, communicate with cyber crooks, or try to use alternative ways to recover your files, it is all up to you.
Why is your operating system not protected? It must not be considering that Satan’s Doom Ransomware has slithered in and encrypted your files. Although it might be too late to save your files, it is never too late to protect your operating system. Install a trusted anti-malware tool now, and it will remove Satan’s Doom Ransomware along with all malicious components too. If you are not interested in this, you will need to eliminate the ransomware and then take care of your system’s protection all on your own. These are not easy tasks, but we can help you with the first one. If you follow the guide below, you will learn how to terminate malicious processes and remove Satan’s Doom Ransomware elements. When it comes to your personal files, if they are not backed up, you are unlikely to recover them. We suggest, from now on, backing up files to protect them in the future.
