Bisquilla Ransomware is a pseudo computer infection that looks like it is still in a test run. As a ransomware application, it is supposed to encrypt target files, but it doesn’t look like it can do it. At least not yet. We have to learn everything we can about this infection, so it would be possible to prevent the newer versions from entering target systems. Be sure to remove Bisquilla Ransomware from your system as soon as possible. If you need help with malware removal or you don’t know how to ensure your system’s safety, be sure to address a professional.
This particular edition of Bisquilla Ransomware is still the first version of the application, and so, as we have mentioned, it doesn’t encrypt anything. The program itself is written in the .NET programming language, and it shares its code with the Jigsaw Ransomware. It is very common for ransomware developers to apply a well-known code to their own infections. The codes are usually tweaked and modified, but the core elements remain intact. However, it is quite unfortunate that the same decryption tool usually cannot be applied across different programs based on the same code. Luckily, we do not need to worry about that for Bisquilla Ransomware, but that is an important piece of information one should keep in mind.
It is very likely that this program is distributed just like Jigsaw Ransomware, and so it can enter target systems via spam email attachments. Spam email attachments are the most common ransomware distribution method, and it is important to understand that one can easily avoid ransomware, as long as they are careful about the content they receive through email.
While most of the spam email messages are filtered into the Junk folder, there are mailing systems that might not have an algorithm strong enough. Or some spam messages could be sophisticated to the point they reach the main inbox. Also, when a system becomes a target of a spear-phishing attack, the spam email messages can reach their targets directly. What’s more, the content of the message could look reliable and urgent. You might feel inclined to check the attached document, but if the message comes from an unknown sender, and the tone is urgent, it’s always a good idea to run the downloaded file through an antispyware scanner. Just to be sure that it’s not malicious.
However, if Bisquilla Ransomware enters your system, there’s no need to panic. Upon the installation, this program will open a command prompt window, and it then it opens itself in yet another black window with a simple plain text. But if you click the exit button at the top of those windows, you automatically close the ransomware, too.
Technically, Bisquilla Ransomware should add the “.wrk” extension to the files that it targets to encrypt. We can expect further versions of this program to work better than the first one, so please be aware of that. The program should also be able to encrypt JPG, GIF, PDF, PNG, ZIP, RAR, and many other file types in the future.
Bisquilla Ransomware doesn’t drop any additional files, so it is really easy to remove it from your system. You just need to delete the file that launched the infection. If you do not remember, which file that was, simply scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner, and then delete malicious files, and protect your system from potential threats in the future. Also, you should seriously consider backing up your files on a cloud drive or an external hard drive in the case of a future ransomware infection. Just to be sure that you still have your files if something happens to your device.
