7h9r Ransomware is a serious computer infection that was developed by cyber criminals to obtain money from users. This threat is definitely not the only one that exists on the web and threatens to steal money from innocent users; however, it is definitely unique in one sense – researchers at 411-spyware.com have conducted research and found that this ransomware infections deletes itself after it finishes encrypting files and does not create copies of itself in different directories. In addition, it encrypts files silently and does not change the Desktop background. Even though 7h9r Ransomware is a slightly different ransomware infection, its main purpose is still the same – to make users pay money. Yes, it encrypts users’ personal files to be able to demand a ransom. Specialists say that it is not worth making a payment to cyber criminals even though it might seem to be the quickest solution to the problem. If you wonder why it is so, continue reading. We are sure we will answer all your questions about 7h9r Ransomware.

As you already know, 7h9r Ransomware enters systems with an intention of encrypting all the files. It has been found that it encrypts pictures, documents, videos, music files, etc. For example, it is targeted at files with the following extensions: .wmv, .xls, .pps, .flv, .dbf, .bmp, .mp3, .mov, .mpeg, .mp4, .png, .pps, .ppsx, .cs, .php, .rb, .rbw, .sql, .csv, .jpeg, .key, and .sqlitedb. It will add its own extension .7h9r to those encrypted files, so you will easily recognize which of your files are encrypted. As you can see, this infection encrypts the majority of files stored on the computer no matter what the content of these files is. In order to inform users about that, it creates several copies of the README_.txt file in directories containing encrypted files. This file informs users what they need to do to unlock their data:

Your files were encrypted. If you want to decrypt them you must send code {numbers and letters} to email 7h9r341@gmail.com.

Then you will receive all necessary instructions. Attempts to decipher on their own will not lead to anything good, except irretrievable loss of information.

If you still want try to decipher them, please make a copy of files, this is our life hacking for you. (If you change the file we can't decrypt them in future)

Specialists have contacted cyber criminals and received the answer that the decryption key costs $100. It is very likely that you will be asked to pay such or a higher sum for the decryptor, so if you are not going to transfer money to cyber criminals, you should not even bother writing an email to cyber criminals. Even though it is not that easy to break the RSA key which this ransomware infection uses, you can still recover your files free of charge. For example, you do not need to pay money for cyber criminals if you have copies of your major files. Researchers working at 411-spyware.com also say that the free decryption tool should be released in the future too, so it might be worth waiting for it instead of paying money to cyber crooks.

Let us tell you how ransomware infections are distributed. This might help you to prevent them from slithering onto the computer in the future. According to specialists, ransomware infections, including 7h9r Ransomware, usually travel as spam email attachments. They pretend to be .doc, .pdf, or other harmless files in order to convince users to open them. 7h9r Ransomware is distributed this way too. Fortunately, it does not create copies of itself and disappears after it finishes encrypting files (in most cases). It would be clever that you install a security tool after you make sure that it is gone because, we are sure, you do not want to encounter another ransomware infection ever again. In addition, these threats might also be distributed somehow differently in order to reach many more users.

7h9r Ransomware should not leave any files, create new registry keys, or apply other changes. Therefore, it is very likely that you will not need to remove anything. Of course, in some cases, its .exe file might stay. If you see it, you need to remove it (use our manual removal instructions provided below).
