Category: Trojans Ransomware is a malicious program that could encipher files on the computer to make them unusable. After doing so, the threat displays a ransom note claiming the hackers behind the malware guarantee the victim will receive needed decryption tools if he pays a ransom. The problem is you have to pay first and only then you may receive the needed tools if you do not get scammed. In other words, despite what the malicious application’s developers say there are no guarantees and sadly, refunds. Consequently, we advise thinking twice before making a rash decision. For more information about Ransomware, you could read the rest of the article. Also, those who decide to remove the malware can do so manually, by following the instructions located at the end of the text.

Our researchers say Ransomware is just another variant of Paradise Ransomware since Paradise Ransomware Team signs the malware's ransom note. Thus, the new version could be spread through similar channels, although we can only guess what these channels could be since there is not much information on how these infections are spread. From our experience with such malicious applications, we can tell it is often victims of ransomware that launch them themselves without even realizing it. For example, it could travel with malicious file-sharing web pages, advertisements, email attachments, and so on. Meaning, the file that infects the system with Ransomware could be any recently downloaded file. To avoid catching such threats by mistake in the future, we recommend staying away from suspicious files you could come across while surfing the Internet or checking your email. As extra precaution users should acquire a reliable antimalware tool of their choice.

It does not look like Ransomware creates any executable files or Registry entries upon entering the system. As a result, it is possible the infection might start encrypting user’s files right away. Our specialists say, the malicious program marks all data it enciphers with a unique additional extension, for example, in our case it was u5WR5IH8MO9Rte97_{}.CORP. The part from random numbers and digits should be unique for each victim as it is the malware’s given ID number that should be seen on the ransom note too. The ransom text ought to be displayed on a text document called NOTE ABOUT FILES.html or similarly. According to it the user’s files were enciphered due to some security problem and can be restored with particular tools provided by the malware’s creators. Of course, Ransomware’s developers wish to receive a payment in exchange for such tools. We cannot tell what the price could be, but we would strongly recommend not to take any chances. Dealing with the hackers is always risky since you cannot be sure they will hold on to their end of the deal.

It seems to us the smartest thing to do if you do not want to put up with any demands and risk losing your money in vain is to erase Ransomware. One of the ways to get rid of it is to remove its data manually, and the instructions located below this paragraph will help you with this task. On the other hand, if you would rather use automatic features instead, you should pick a reliable antimalware tool and perform a full system scan with it.
