Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) is an infection that encrypts files. That means that it is capable of employing an encryption algorithm to change the data of the files. When that is done, the files can be read only using a decryptor, and, of course, it is not something that victims are provided with. The goal behind this kind of an attack is to make victims pay money in order to get their files decrypted. If there were any guarantees that files would be decrypted, maybe we could discuss ransoms and payments, but there are no guarantees, and it is very unlikely that the attackers would spend their time helping victims. Their ultimate goal is to get the money, and they do not care about their victims beyond that. Of course, whether or not you pay the ransomware and try to strike a deal with cyber criminals is your choice. That being said, regardless of the outcome, it is a must to delete Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension).

We cannot talk about Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) without discussing the Dharma/Crysis Ransomware family. This is the family of malicious infections that function and look the same, and that is because they are all created using the same code. Karlosdecrypt@outlook.com Ransomware, Bestdecoding@cock.li Ransomware, and Backdata@qq.com Ransomware are just few other infections that belong to the same family. All of them encrypt files, and all of them attach unique extensions to their original names. “id-{id}.[admin@decryption.biz].bkpx” is the extension that is attached by Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension), and it includes an email address and a unique id code. It seems that the attackers can use the id codes to identify the victims, but we are not sure that this would help them provide the correct decryptor. Hopefully, you do not need to think about the decryption of your personal files at all because you have backup copies stored online or on external drives. Can you use a system restore point to salvage your personal files? Unfortunately, you cannot because Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) deletes shadow volume copies before it starts the encryption.

FILES ENCRYPTED.txt and Info.hta are two files that Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) creates to send the same message. According to it, the victim must send a message to admin@decryption.biz (or bigbro1@cock.li if no one responds within 24 hours) along with their id code to get instructions on how to pay for the decryption of the files. There is no explanation as to how this process works, but victims have an option to send one file so that the attackers could prove that decryption is possible. First of all, you need to think carefully if you should email the attackers because you do not want to make it possible for them to reach out to you whenever they want to. This could be used to expose you to scams and phishing emails in the future! Second, do not trust that all of your files will be decrypted if one file gets decrypted for free. The creators of Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) will say and do anything just to get you to pay the ransom. Whether it is small or big, paying it is a huge risk.

Can you remove Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) manually? That depends on whether or not you can remove the executable that launched the infection. We cannot give you a clear path to it because we do not know its name or its location. A reliable anti-malware program, on the other hand, can give you its exact location. Furthermore, it can remove it automatically. To top it all off, it also can patch all existing security vulnerabilities and make sure that your operating system stands strong against other malicious threats that might attack in the future. If you want to evade malware, anti-malware software is most useful. Unfortunately, whether you delete Dharma Ransomware (.bkpx extension) manually or using other tools, your files will not be restored. Hopefully, you have backup copies, and once the infection is eliminated, you can replace the corrupted files with these backups.
