Best Recovery Ransomware is a dangerous computer infection that will leave you struggling with a system full of locked files. There is no public decryption tool available for this infection as of yet. Therefore, you might have to rely on a file backup, provided you have one. If you don’t, there might still be ways to restore your files. However, whenever we deal with ransomware infections, we have to remember that sometimes we have to start building our file libraries anew. Thus, do not feel discouraged if that’s what you’ll have to do once you remove Best Recovery Ransomware for good.
Our research team suggests that Best Recovery Ransomware might be distributed through spam emails and torrents. It would also mean that users allow this infection to enter their systems. It’s not surprising because Best Recovery Ransomware (and other similar infections) work like trojans. They pretend to be something else, and users unwittingly allow these dangerous programs to enter their computers. You might think that you are downloading some program, but once you unzip it and run the file, that might be the installer file for Best Recovery Ransomware.
The same applies to spam email attachments, too. It is very often that ransomware installer files that come via spam look like legitimate documents. It is especially dangerous if you deal with various documents every single day at work. If you’re too used to such documents, you might not even think twice before downloading the attachment and running it. That’s what the distributors of this infection are counting on when they target you.
As far as the origins of this infection are concerned, the research shows that this program is similar to Ako Ransomware. However, it can only give us insight on the behavior of the infection. It is very seldom that programs based on the same code share the decryption code, too. As you can probably guess, there’s no public decryption available for Ako Ransomware, too.
Either way, now that we know that it’s possible to avoid Best Recovery Ransomware if we are careful enough, what can we expect if this program manages to reach our systems?
For one, Best Recovery Ransomware will definitely lock up our files, and all the affected files will have the ‘.best_recovery’ extension added to all the filenames. At the same time, Best Recovery Ransomware doesn’t encrypt every single file on the target computer. We know for sure that this program skips the following format files: DLL, SYS, INI, RDP, ENCRYPTED, and EXE. This just shows that once the files are encrypted, the system still runs because the infection gives you the chance to respond to the following ransom note:
Your files are encrypted!
Your files are encrypted, and currently unavailable.
You can check it: all files on your computer has new expansion.
By the way, everything is possible to recover (restore), but you need to buy a unique decryptor.
Otherwise, you never cant return your data.
Below the main message, the ransom note gives you several emails you can use to contact the criminals behind the infection. However, please do not do so as there is no guarantee that the criminals would issue the decryption key even if you pay.
It’s better to remove everything related to Best Recovery Ransomware from your system and then work on recovering your files. Even if you don’t have the file backup, you might have saved some of the latest files on your mobile device, your cloud drive, or some other storage space. Check everything and if you feel at a loss, be sure to address a professional.
