Delphimorix Ransomware is a malicious application that shows a note asking to contact its developers via firstname.lastname@example.org. It is also known for demanding a ridiculously huge ransom, which, as the note states, is 101.5 Bitcoins. Currently, a single Bitcoin is a bit more than 5 thousand US dollars, so you can imagine how huge the ransom is. However, our researchers doubt it is the real price because even though the ransom note explains where to transfer the money, it warns users to contact the malicious application’s creators first. It is difficult to say what the real price could be as some hackers demand smaller sums like 20 US dollars and others want to get a few hundred US dollars from each victim. Of course, it is up to you to decide whether your files are worth the risk. Provided, you do not want to take any chances, we believe it would be best to get rid of Delphimorix Ransomware. To learn more about the malicious application first, we invite you to read the rest of our report.
The malware could be spread through various channels. For instance, a lot of threats similar to Delphimorix Ransomware travel with infected email attachments, software installers, and data alike. Thus, users who would like to avoid coming across such malicious applications should stay alert when receiving files from senders you are not familiar with or Spam emails. Also, it is crucial to keep away from unknown torrent and other file-sharing web pages that distribute pirated software, unknown freeware, etc. In other words, if you are looking for a new application or an update, it is best to obtain it from a legitimate site. What’s more, as an extra precaution our specialists recommend installing a reliable security tool that could help you identify malicious content.
After encrypting private files found on the computer, Delphimorix Ransomware should open a pop-up warning that can be closed by pressing the “Okay, please close” button located on it. As many other ransom notes displayed by similar malicious applications, it claims the user has to pay to receive decryption tools. What is unusual in this case is that the mentioned sum is enormous. We are almost one hundred percent sure, there is anyone who would agree to pay it, which is probably why the hackers ask to email them before transferring the money. To be more precise, the malware’s creators are most likely joking and to find out the real sum, the victim probably has to contact them as requested. As said earlier we do not advise putting up with any demands if you do not want to take any chances. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees the Delphimorix Ransomware’s developers will deliver the promised tools as they can always change their mind or decide they want more money after all.
