B2dr Ransomware is a new threat to you and your precious files since there is a chance that discovering this dangerous ransomware on your system also means that you could lose all your important files. Of course, there is a chance, too, that you are a security-minded computer user, who makes regular backups on a removable drive or to cloud to play it safe. In fact, this could be your only savior right now. As you may already know, paying the demanded ransom fee for the decryption of your files rarely works out well for the victims. Obviously, these cyber criminals could not care less about your files once they get what they want: your money. If you want to feel safe again, we strongly recommend that you remove B2dr Ransomware immediately from your PC.
It seems that this ransomware program is distributed the normal ways. The most likely way for you to infect your computer with this dangerous threat is to open a spam e-mail and click to see its attachment. This attached file can look like an image, a PDF or DOC document, but it can also pose as a ZIP archive. But it is none of these indeed; it is the malicious executable that will start its vicious operations the moment you execute it on your PC. This spam can be very convincing and is playing a game with your curiosity. It is constructed in a way that even if you do not feel related, you would want to see what is inside or what it has to tell you. Cyber crooks usually use subjects like unpaid invoices, undeliverable parcel from FedEx, online booking gone wrong, and so on. Any of these subject matters could make you want to learn more about it, right? Well, wrong, in the sense that once you click to see this fake attachment, there is no way for you to delete B2dr Ransomware without possibly losing your files.
It is also possible that you have a remote desktop program like TeamViewer installed on your computer, but it is unsecure by being weakly configured. You may use an easy-to-break password, for example, and such cyber crooks can gain access via remote desktop protocol. This is how you may not even know and this ransomware program can be activated on your system behind your back. You should be careful with your downloads, too, and installing fake plugins and apps while browsing the web. These are also possible ways to drop such a dangerous ransomware. We need to mention Exploit Kits as well, which could be used by cyber criminals to take advantage of outdated software and infect you that way. This is why it is important that you keep all your programs, including your browsers and drivers always up-to-date if you do not want to remove B2dr Ransomware or other serious threats after losing your files to encryption.
This new ransomware infection uses the AES algorithm to encrypt your main personal files, such as your photos, audios, videos, archives, and databases. This is a built-in algorithm in your Windows operating system, which makes it really fast. In other words, there is no chance that you could notice its malicious operations and abort it in time to save your files from encryption. All the encrypted files get a ".firstname.lastname@example.org" unique extension. It is possible that the ransom note, "readme.txt," is dropped only on your desktop, but it might also appear in all the affected folders.
This ransom note instructs you to send and email to "email@example.com" but you can only use these services to do so: gmail.com, yahoo.com, and protonmail.com. In their reply, these cyber crooks ask you to archive any three small encrypted files and upload it to sendspace.com, and then, send the link to them so that they can decrypt them for free as a proof of having the decryption key. We have no information yet about the ransom fee but it could be anything from 10 dollars up to 10 thousand dollars depending on the appetite and target of the criminals. But whatever this demanded amount is, we do not encourage you to pay because there is no guarantee that you will get the decryption key or software. We advise you to remove B2dr Ransomware right now.
It seems that you can easily eliminate this dangerous ransomware by simply deleting the related files you may have downloaded or it has created on your system. You can use our general guide below to do it. Even if you have a backup, you need to make sure first that this malware infection is gone completely.
