Delphi Ransomware is a malicious infection that can encrypt your files, and it will do so. The people behind this program are bound to rip you off by extorting the ransom payment out of you, but you should never succumb to their threats. We do understand that it can be really frustrating and intimidating to find this infection on your computer, but there are ways to remove Delphi Ransomware from your system, and you should do that ASAP. Also, you should look for ways to restore your files, too. If you cannot come up with anything on your own, you can always address a professional.
What is the best way to restore the affected files, though? Any security specialist would tell you that you wouldn’t have anything to worry about if you had a file backup. What is a file backup? It’s storage where you keep copies of your files. For example, it could be an external hard drive where you regularly transfer copies of your files. Or it could be a cloud drive where your files are sync automatically. The point is, it is always a good idea to have copies of your important files saved someplace else because you can never know when you can get infected with the likes of Delphi Ransomware.
Another thing we have to pay attention to is how this infection spreads around. Our research team says that this program usually spreads through dangerous software bundles and spam email attachments. This shows that users might download and install this dangerous infection themselves. Of course, no one downloads malware willingly. But it happens when users do not pay attention to the files they download and the messages they encounter.
Spam emails often employ an urgent tone to make users think they have to react to the message immediately. If you do not double check the sender, you might feel inclined to check the “document” that is attached to the mail. And this is where Delphi Ransomware enters the system, and then you are doomed to battle this dangerous infection.
So, what do we learn from this? The fact is that it is possible to avoid getting infected with Delphi Ransomware when you are careful about the files you download and open. Let’s not forget that you can also scan every single file that you download from the Internet with a licensed security tool. If you do that, you would definitely avoid Delphi Ransomware or any other dangerous infection.
However, if Delphi Ransomware manages to enter your system, this ransomware will definitely encrypt your files. It actually affects almost every single file on the target computer, save for the system files (if it were to affect system files, the creators would not be able to receive the ransom payment). Once the encryption is complete, the infection displays a pop-up window that says you have to contact the criminals behind this intruder via the given email. You have only 10 hours to contact these crooks. If you fail to do that, your files will be “flushed down the toilet.”
Needless to say, doing what you are told by these cybercriminals is never a good idea. Simply close the ransom note window, and then remove the file that launched the infection. The main challenge in this situation is restoring your files. It is very likely that a public decryption tool for Delphi Ransomware will be available soon. But if you do not like to wait, you can seek help from a professional technician, who might find ways to restore your files. Of course, if you have your files saved someplace else, there is nothing to worry about: Simply delete the encrypted ones, and transfer the copies back into a clean system.
