Our specialists say the document with the note could be opened again and again every sixty seconds. Thus, while the malware is installed, it will not let you forget what it has done to your data, and what you are supposed to do to restore it. The malware should encrypt user’s personal files and leave program data alone. Files that get affected can be recognized from the second extension they ought to have, for example, nature.jpg.GILLETTE.
