FileCoder Ransomware is a threat that can ambush you without any warning. The success of this threat depends on the successful infiltration, which is why its developers have turned to malicious scams. Our researchers have found that FileCoder Ransomware primarily travels via corrupted spam emails. The credentials of banks, delivery companies, federal organizations, and other reputable parties could be used to trick you into thinking that corrupted emails are trustworthy. If you trust them, you could be tricked into downloading malware without even knowing it. If that happens, the malicious ransomware infection will immediately encrypt your personal files making them inaccessible. Unfortunately, even if you delete FileCoder Ransomware, your personal files will remain encrypted. Needless to say, this should not stop you from removing this clandestine infection, and we can help you.
Once installed, FileCoder Ransomware can encrypt the most personal files. This infection will not attack system files, but it will go for photos, videos, documents, and similar content. Needless to say, these files are the most vulnerable because they cannot be replaced, unless users have backups. If you use file storage systems, you can remove FileCoder Ransomware without having to worry about your personal files. Of course, if that is not the case, you need to weigh your options to make sure that you do everything to keep your personal files safe. Unfortunately, many computer users are scared to do anything, even to delete this ransomware, because of the warnings that are introduced via a .bmp file launched from %APPDATA%. For example, one warning suggests that personal files will be removed without a chance of restoring them if users attempt to decrypt the corrupted files manually.
The intimidating FileCoder Ransomware warnings are used to force users to act in a certain way. If you follow the demands, you will send a private code to an email address provided. After this, you will receive instructions indicating how much you need to pay to have your files decrypted. If you contact schemers, they will learn your email address, which might help them expose you to even more dangerous scams in the future. On top of that, your files might remain decrypted even if you pay the requested ransom. Even though you will not restore your personal files by removing FileCoder Ransomware, you should think twice before you decide to follow the instructions provided by cyber criminals. After all, you are at risk of losing your money without the promised file decryption.
You have to delete FileCoder Ransomware from your operating system to make sure that this infection cannot download malware or act in some other malicious way. Of course, if you delete this threat without following its demands, your files will be lost. This is not a big deal if you have backup copies of your personal files, but, if you do not, you might want to look into file decryption tools. If authentic, trustworthy tools cannot help you restore your files, you should not postpone the removal of FileCoder Ransomware for much longer. Luckily, the removal of this threat can be handled by reliable security software that you MUST install to protect your PC from ransomware in the future.
