If you often encounter spam emails, you might also be exposed to a lot of ransomware installation files without even realizing it. One of them might carry Everbe 2.0 Ransomware. This malicious infection encrypts a lot of personal files and then waits for users to pay the ransom fee. Computer security experts are strongly against paying such fees because they do not guarantee that your files will be decrypted. On the contrary, if you do not remove Everbe 2.0 Ransomware at once and you succumb to the demands of this infection, you will only encourage it.
This program can affect both individual and corporate computer systems. It is very likely that it may target small businesses because small businesses are less likely to invest in cyber security. What’s more, small business employees might not be well aware of all the potential cyber security threats, and so they might open phishing emails that carry the installer file for this program. This situation shows how important it is to educate your employees about all the potential threats. Although various reports suggest that only around 4% of phishing and spam emails reach their target, that small number of successful infiltration is enough to make ransomware a worldwide pandemic.
Likewise, Everbe 2.0 Ransomware can affect anyone who opens a corrupted attachment, and once the program is inside, it deletes the Shadow Copies and then encrypts personal files. Although there are ransomware infections that are known to encrypt every single file on the target system, this new version of Everbe Ransomware does not do such a thing. It leaves the Windows system files intact because it still needs you to access the Internet and pay the ransom fee. However, instead of paying the ransom, you should use it to look for ways to remove the infection.
It shouldn’t be hard to terminate Everbe 2.0 Ransomware because the program does not seem to drop a lot of malicious files. So you just need to look for the malicious file that started it all. It will probably be in your Downloads folder or in any other directory where you save your downloaded files. Then, you will also have to remove the ransom note file. The ransom note is dropped in every folder than contains encrypted files, so it might be a little bit troublesome to delete every single one of them manually. Therefore, we would suggest you getting a powerful antispyware tool that would remove Everbe 2.0 Ransomware along with every single file that is associated with this infection.
As far as your files are concerned, no public decryption tool is available at the moment. If you have an external system backup, you can remove the encrypted files along with the infection, and then transfer the healthy copies back into your computer. However, whenever we deal with ransomware infections we have to understand that there is always a possibility that we will not be able to restore our files, so please do not feel discouraged to start things anew. For other potential ways to retrieve your files, please consider contacting a professional technician.
