CryptoFinancial Ransomware could be a nightmare and a dangerous malware attack as ransomware programs usually are. However, this infection is different. How? It is possible that when this ransomware enters your computer it does not even encrypt your files as claimed by the ransom note it locks your screen with once the alleged encryption has been finished. It is possible that there are other variants of this malware infection out there that actually encrypt your files. In that case it is likely that the nightmare did hit you hard because usually there is no easy way to recover the encrypted files unless you can find a free working tool on the web or you have a recent backup copy of your files on an external drive. But we can only share what we have found out during our research and somehow our samples did not actually encrypt files. All in all, this ransomware could still fool some unsuspecting users who would rather pay the ransom fee to get their files back and their system running. But we believe that it is more important to remove CryptoFinancial Ransomware the moment you realize that it has hit your system.

We have found that this ransomware mainly uses the most common method to spread over the web, which is travelling in spam e-mails as a malicious attachment. It is quite possible that you have opened such a spam recently. In fact, you should know that such malicious spam mails are capable of evading your spam filter and end up in your inbox. What’s more, these mails can also trick you into believing that it is a must-see message with an urgent attachment. The most common subjects and themes criminals use to deceive unsuspecting users include mail delivery error, parcel delivery message, unpaid invoice, problems with an airplane ticket, credit card accessing issues, and so on. These crooks can use any topic that could get your attention right away. This could be further strengthened by the body of the mail itself and you will certainly feel the need to download the attached file and open it right away. In a few clicks you actually initiate this ransomware infection.

Usually this attached file poses as an image, video, or even a text document file. In the latter case, this document pretends to be an invoice, for example; however, when you open it, you will only see some gibberish characters. On the top of the page there may be a warning to enable macros if you want to see the content. And, when you do so, of course, you initiate the malicious code that downloads or activates this ransomware. It is also possible that CryptoFinancial Ransomware uses exploit kits to infect unsuspecting users. This means that criminals set up fake websites with Flash or JavaScript content, which are quite vulnerable when not updated regularly, and cyber criminals can exploit these to access the victim’s computer and drop this infection. In any case, the moment you realize that your computer is under attack, you should delete CryptoFinancial Ransomware right away.

Once this infection is activated it is supposed to encrypt your files. The samples we have worked with did not actually do so, but we cannot claim that there are no versions out there that may encrypt files. That is why we let you know that most often ransomware programs target your documents, photos, videos, and program files. When this process is done, this malware locks your screen with a full-screen ransom note that is pretty scary. These crooks claim 0.2 Bitcoins (around 130 USD) in return for recovering your files and your system from its locked and encrypted state. We do not recommend that you pay this amount however frightening this message may be. First of all, you can easily check if this ransomware has really encrypted your files. All you need to do is use the Alt+Tab combination to change your screen, i.e., to bypass the alleged screen lock and you can try to run any of your documents, photos, or videos to see if they are accessible at all. So if you can confirm that no real harm has been done to your files, you would be more ready to act and remove CryptoFinancial Ransomware from your system.

As a matter of fact, it is not even that difficult to delete CryptoFinancial Ransomware. A lot of times ransomware programs do not really care whether you can eliminate them easily or not. What’s more, some of them even remove themselves after their dirty job is done. The simple reason is that the damage is done so why worry. The crooks can kick back and relax until their Bitcoin address fills with easy money from misled or tricked victims. In the case of this ransomware, all you need to do is use the Alt+Tab trick to bypass the screen lock, then, locate and delete all the malicious files. Practically, this is that simple. If you want to be protected from all existing malware infections, we suggest that you employ a reputable anti-malware application. To be on the safe side, you should also make sure that you update all your drivers and programs regularly.
