When Wo Sind Meine Dateien Ransomware invades your operating system, it destroys your personal files, and then it creates a ransom note suggesting that they are simply encrypted and that you can reverse it all by purchasing a decryption key. According to our research team, trusting the information provided to you by the creator of this ransomware is a terrible idea. If you pay attention and fulfill the demands, you will find yourself with your wallet empty and your files lost. Although it all sounds awful and unfair, you have to remember that ransomware creators are never trustworthy. In fact, even if your files were only encrypted, you would not be able to recover them anyway. Do you back up your files regularly? If you do, you probably do not need to worry about anything else but the removal of the threat. Is it possible to delete Wo Sind Meine Dateien Ransomware? While you cannot eliminate this malware at one fell swoop, there are a few different methods that you can apply, and they are discussed in this report.
“Hsdfsdcrypt Ransomware” and “Ordinypt Ransomware” are other names that the vicious Wo Sind Meine Dateien Ransomware is recognized by. There are so many different names because the actual name of the threat is not specified. Maybe it does not exist at all. Our research team has given the threat its name because of the name of the ransom note file that is created by it. It is called “Wo_sind_meine_Dateien.html, ” and you are likely to find it in the directories where files are allegedly encrypted. The files that this malware attacks have such extension as .avi, .jpg, .mp3, .gif, or .txt. Clearly, Wo Sind Meine Dateien Ransomware is meant to encrypt files that are deemed “personal.” The good news is that this malware does not corrupt system files, as it completely avoids folders whose names include words “programdata,” “program,” “programme,” or “windows.” Despite the fact that the threat destroys files instead of encrypting them – and it is not yet clear how the threat does it – the information in the ransom note suggests that files can be decrypted if the victim sends 0.12 Bitcoin to 1DSndkyJaHMNUi9hR1cswXt2cFNwfGmPhQ within 7 days. At the time of research, this sum was around 740 USD or 840 EUR. As we discussed already, it is more important to focus on the removal of the ransomware than the demands made by it.
According to our research team, the malicious Wo Sind Meine Dateien Ransomware is most likely to slither into your operating system using spam emails. It was found that the names of the files representing the ransomware include “Viktoria Henschel - Lebenslauf - November.pdf.exe” and "Viktoria Henschel - Bewerbung - November.pdf.exe,” but, of course, this could change. As you can see, the names of these files have two different extensions, and that is meant to trick users into thinking that they are PDF files, when, in reality, executables are launched upon opening them. The manual removal guide you can find below shows how you might be able to find this file using Task Manager, but you might be able to locate it by yourself. If you are not sure which processes and files are malicious, you should not jump to removing any unfamiliar file you encounter because that could cause other kinds of issues.
