Ransomware programs are dangerous computer security threats that will leave your system crippled as they swagger away with huge amounts of money. .crypted034 Ransomware is one of those infections, and it is extremely frustrating because it causes havoc on your system, and then it disappears. So there is no way to remove .crypted034 Ransomware because you no longer have to do it. Instead, you need to deal with the consequences of this infection.
In this description, we will tell you more about this program, where it comes from, and what you can do to avoid similar infections in the future. It is not just about the security software that you use. It’s also about your web browsing habits and the files you download on a regular basis.
Judging from what our research team has found about this infection, this program comes from the Scarab Ransomware family. It is similar to Scarab-Good Ransomware, Scarab-Glutton Ransomware, Scarab-Cybergod Ransomware, and many others. Therefore, this program is distributed just like the previously released malware infections, too.
To avoid .crypted034 Ransomware, you need to refrain from opening every single attached file you receive in your inbox. The most popular ransomware distribution method is spam emails and we receive hundreds of them every single day. While most of them get filtered into the junk folder, some of the more sophisticated ones could slither into the main inbox, too.
Thus, before opening an email attachment, you should check whether you really were supposed to receive it. If it is some financial report, did it really come from a reliable source? Do you really have an account at that bank? Please go through a checklist of things before you download the attachment received from an unknown sender. If you must, scan the received file with a security tool before opening it.
However, when you get infected with .crypted034 Ransomware, you will see at once that something is terribly off. This program encrypts most of the user files, and then drops a ransom note in every single folder that has the affected files. The ransom note says the following:
All your files have been encrypted due to a security problem with your PC.
Now you should send us email with your personal identifier.
This email will be as confirmation you are ready to pay for decryption key.
You have to pay for decryption in Bitcoins. The price depends on how fast you write to us.
As you can see, .crypted034 Ransomware doesn’t even indicate the actual ransom amount, so it is a very fishy infection. Needless to say, you should never pay a single cent to these crooks. You need to look for ways to recover your files, as you no longer need to remove .crypted034 Ransomware. We have already mentioned above that this ransomware program disappears once the encryption is complete.
So, if you have copies of your files saved on an external hard drive, you can delete the encrypted files, and then transfer the copies back into your drive. There might also be other places where you have saved the most recent files, so do not panic and check all of your options. If necessary, address a professional.
