Dont_worry Ransomware can sneak onto your system without your knowledge and encrypt hundreds of file extensions causing total devastation on your computer. Unfortunately, you cannot not worry since it is possible that after this malicious attack, you will not be able to recover your files if you do not have a backup. We have found that this Russian malware infection belongs to a family that also includes AMBA Ransomware. This ransomware is most likely targeted at Russian computer users. So, it is possible that the ransom fee does not reach hundreds or thousands of dollars' worth of Bitcoins. But no matter how much money these cyber criminals are trying to extort from you, we believe that it is the safest solution to remove Dont_worry Ransomware from your system as soon as possible and transfer your clean files back onto your hard drive from your backup, if you have any. Please read our full report to learn how you can avoid similar dangers in the future.
In order for you to get infected with this dangerous ransomware program, it is enough to click on a spam e-mail and then, open its attachment. Unfortunately, this attached file can be rather deceiving since it may pose as an image, a document, or a self-extracting archive. Obviously, nobody would in their right mind click to view an attachment called "Execute_me_only_to_lose_all_your_files.exe," right? So it has to be convincing enough for the victims to want to see it. This is usually achieved by making you believe that this attachment contains vital information regarding an alleged urgent matter. This matter could be anything that can make you curious enough to want to click on this mail even if you find it in your spam folder. You may have noticed that spam filters have strict policies and, thanks to that, they tend to place totally normal and legitimate mails too in the spam folder. This is why users like to check this folder from time to time, not to miss out on something possibly important. So when you find an email there claiming to be about an unpaid invoice well overdue, you are most likely to want to see the details. However, this is only possible if you download and run the attachment. Since the encryption will start up right away as a result, it will not be possible to delete Dont_worry Ransomware from your system without the serious consequence of losing your files.
We also would like to warn you to keep all your browsers and drivers updated because hackers and cyber criminals can easily drop dangerous ransomware infections like this one, and you would not even realize it until it is too late. It is usually done by setting up a trap, a malicious website using Exploit Kits, which can find outdated security holes and use them to drop such an infection in the background. We also recommend that you only use official and reputable websites to download any software and update if you do not want to infect your computer with ransomware and other malicious threats as well. To be frank, it does not really matter how this dangerous threat managed to infiltrate your system in the sense that in the end you need to remove it anyway.
Our research shows that this ransomware infection uses two original files called dwintl_x64.exe and gwintl.exe. Once it is up and running, it applies the combination of AES and RSA algorithm to encrypt hundreds of file extensions on your hard disk. This is why you may lose all your photos, audios, videos, documents, archives, databases as well as third-party program files. This is a major hit you need to take seriously. The encrypted files get a new extension in the format of ".firstname.lastname@example.org" (e.g., "file.jpg" becomes "email@example.com") where the "id" is different for every encrypted file. This malware infection also creates a ransom note text file called "Dont_Worry.txt" in every affected folder.
This note is written in Russian language and it simply informs you about the attack and that you have to send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org" for further details, which you are supposed to get in a reply message. We have no information regarding the amount of the fee demanded at this point, but Russian ransomware attacks usually do not go too crazy demanding thousands of dollars. It is most likely that you will have to pay in Bitcoins. But even if the fee is $10, which happens sometimes in such cases, we do not advise you to support such criminals with any money in the hope of getting your files back, which is highly unlikely anyway. We recommend that you remove Dont_worry Ransomware ASAP.
