Do you got infected with BlackKingdom Ransomware, what does that mean? Nothing good. This program encrypts your files and holds them hostage (hence the type “ransomware”). However, sometimes even paying the ransom fee doesn’t guarantee that you would restore your files immediately. Hence, use our removal instructions below to delete BlackKingdom Ransomware from your system, and then look for ways to restore your files. If you feel at a loss, don’t hesitate to address a professional for guided assistance.
Aside from looking for ways to restore your files, you should also learn more about ransomware distribution. The point is that users often can avoid the likes of BlackKingdom Ransomware, but they fail to notice the signs.
We believe that this infection reaches you through spam emails. That’s actually the most common ransomware distribution method. It doesn’t have a high success rate, but the sheer amount of spam messages flying around is enough for some users to get into the trap. Users usually get tricked into opening spam emails that carry BlackKingdom Ransomware and other infections because they look legitimate and urgent.
Imagine this, if you tend to communicate at work mostly through emails, you might feel inclined to open every single message that you see in your inbox. What’s more, if you have to open PDF, Word or Excel files every single day at work, the attached file might look like yet another document. However, if the message seems too random, or you don’t recognize the sender, perhaps that’s the first sign that you shouldn’t open it? Also, if you want to check whether the received file is safe or not, you can always scan it with the security tool of your choice before opening it. Just do everything you can to protect your system from things like BlackKingdom Ransomware.
However, if you still got infected with this program, then you will know by now that it locks up your files. It can locate all the files it can encrypt across your system, and then it launches the encryption. When encryption is complete, BlackKingdom Ransomware will notify you about it with this message:
I’m sorry to inform you that Your whole Environment have been hacked!!
all of your Data including (Data, documents, videos, Photos, Databases, servers, outlook emails, and way way more) are encrypted now, and cannot be accessed under any circumstances.
So, this message sounds ominous. What’s more, it goes on to say that you have to pay around $10,000 to get your files back. Preposterous, isn’t it? This sum also gives us an idea that the main targets of this infection are probably small businesses that don’t have file backups, and so they would be more willingly to pay the ransom fee. However, keeping in mind that this infection was released quite a while ago, it is very likely that it is impossible to contact the criminals, and so the paying wouldn’t work.
Ignore the timer that BlackKingdom Ransomware gives you with the countdown. You are supposed to contact the people behind this infection within the given timeframe, but that wouldn’t solve anything. Simply remove BlackKingdom Ransomware from your computer, delete the encrypted files, and transfer healthy copies back into your system from the file backup. If you don’t have a file backup, you should address a professional, to go through other file recovery options.
It would also be a good idea to invest in a security tool that would help you protect your system from various threats. However, please bear in mind that your own attention is just as important. After all, a security program cannot manage spam emails for you.
