Dqb Ransomware is one of Dharma Ransomware versions that show a short message asking to email the malicious application’s developers. We are almost entirely sure the hackers would ask to pay a ransom, and in exchange, they may promise to send decryption tools. As you see, once the threat enters a system, it starts enciphering various files located on it and data that gets affected becomes unusable without decryption tools. Nonetheless, we advise not to put up with any demands if you do not want to risk losing your money in vain. There is such a possibility as there are no guarantees the cybercriminals will hold on to their end of the bargain. If you do not believe it either, we advise deleting Dqb Ransomware and restoring data from backup files you may have. To learn how to eliminate it manually, you should check the instructions available below.
In the rest of the article, we discuss Dqb Ransomware in more details. Firstly, users should know how the threat could enter their systems. Our specialists say the malicious application might be distributed through Spam emails or malicious file-sharing websites. This is why we always recommend being extra careful when interacting with unreliable email attachments or searching for something to download from the Internet. If you are not one hundred percent sure a file you received or downloaded is safe, you should scan it with a chosen security tool. The scan should not take long, and you would instantly know if it is safe to open the suspected file. Of course, it is crucial you pick a reliable antimalware tool and that you keep it up to date so that with time, it could recognize more threats.
As explained at the beginning of this article, Dqb Ransomware encrypts a victim’s files to make them unusable. In this case, the malicious application marks them with a specific extension that may look similar to this one: id-C4BA3647.[firstname.lastname@example.org].dqb. The first part containing an ID number should be unique to each victim, while the rest of the extension ought to be the same. The extension is probably added to make it easier to recognize encrypted files as well as make the malware more visible. In fact, to announce its presence, Dqb Ransomware should also drop a ransom note called RETURN FILES.txt or similarly. Inside of it, users should notice a short text saying: “All your data is encrypted! for return, write to mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
If you do not want to put up with any demands or risk your money, we recommend ignoring the malware’s note. Users who have backup copies could use them to restore encrypted files instead of using a decryptor. Of course, it would be safer to transfer backup copies after the malicious application is gone. To erase it manually, you could use the instructions located at the end of this paragraph. On the other hand, if you like using automatic features, you could employ a reliable security tool instead and let it remove Dqb Ransomware for you.
